Court reduces bond for Kent Mawhinney in Jennifer Dulos case
Bond has been reduced for Kent Mawhinney, the former attorney of Fotis Dulos who was charged in the Jennifer Dulos case.
The court agreed to reduce Kent Mawhinney’s $2 million bond per a request made by his attorneys. The prosecution did not object provided the judge set certain conditions on Mawhinney’s release, which he did.
Mawhinney has been in custody since Jan. 7, when he was charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Jennifer Dulos’ death.
The new order says Mawhinney can only bond out if he posts a total of $246,000 in cash and real estate bonds—$50,000 in cash bond and $196,000 in real estate bond.
He will have to surrender his passport and wear a GPS monitor. He will not be able to leave the state without permission from the court. The court is allowing him to visit his sick dad in Florida, “provided that his itinerary is approved by the office of adult probation.”
Mawhinney remains in custody and will have to go before Judge John Blawie in Stamford before he can be released. A date for that is still pending.
