Cain Velasquez won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
The 39-year-old was charged last week with attempted murder of Harry Goularte, a 43-year-old man accused of inappropriately touching a child related to Velasquez. Authorities said Goularte is accused of molesting Velasquez’s family member multiple times at a daycare facility owned by his mother where he lived.
Goularte was released under the conditions that he stay in home detention, but as he made his way to get an electronic monitoring bracelet, Velasquez started shooting at him.
His bail hearing was set for 9am, and the judge denied it so he will have to remain in custody.
Many supporters, including many in the MMA community, are supporting Velasquez with t-shirts that say “Free Cain,” believing he was justified.
If he is convicted, he faces 20 years in prison.
