    Lawyer Says Mollie Tibbetts Murder Suspect Is in the Country Legally

    Lawyer Says Mollie Tibbetts Murder Suspect Is in the Country Legally





    August 22, 2018



    An attorney for the man charged with murder in the death of an Iowa college student is claiming the government is wrong in its statements that he is in the country illegally.


    Allan M. Richards, an attorney for Cristhian Bahena Rivera, stated in a court document filed Wednesday that an employer has said Rivera is in the U.S. legally. The document names Craig Lang, a former head of the Iowa Board of Regents who is co-owner of a dairy that employed Rivera. The Lang family said in a statement Tuesday that Rivera's immigration status had been confirmed by an E-Verify electronic immigration status check.


    Richards argued for a gag order in the case and mentioned President Donald Trump, who he described as "sad and sorry Trump." Trump mentioned the case at a rally Tuesday night in West Virginia and said it demonstrated the need for tougher immigration laws.


    Richards said Trump's comments will "poison the entire possible pool of jury members."


    The lawyer asked the court to prevent the government from claiming Rivera is in the country illegally.


    Rivera is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts.

    Mr. Rivera chose to keep the privately retained lawyer, Allan M. Richards, who represented him today at the hearing versus an appointed attorney. Who is paying for him? Mr. Lang? An advocacy group?

    Suspect in murder of Mollie Tibbetts makes court appearance


    August 22, 2018


    abc7news.com


    The suspect in the disappearance and murder of an Iowa college student with Bay Area roots is in court today. Police say 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera confessed to the murder of Mollie Tibbetts.

    The 20-year-old's death brings to mind the case for Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old woman who was shot and killed on Pier 14 in San Francisco three years ago. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an undocumented immigrant, was acquitted in the killing. He had previously been deported from the U.S. five times. Take a look at a timeline of how that case unfolded here.

    The Latest on a man in the U.S. illegally who is accused in the kidnapping and killing of an Iowa college student (all times local):

    1:40 p.m.

    A judge has rejected a lawyer's request that the public be barred from an initial hearing for a man charged with killing an Iowa college student.

    Allan M. Richards argued in a motion filed Wednesday that his client's right to a fair trial would be hurt by media coverage if reporters were allowed to remain in the courtroom. He says that comments by senior government officials, including President Donald Trump, have presumed his client is guilty and media coverage is highlighting those comments.


    Richards represents Cristhian Bahena Rivera, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Mollie Tibbetts. Her body was found Tuesday near the central Iowa community of Brooklyn.

    Magistrate Judge Diane Crookham-Johnson rejected Richards' motion. She noted that nothing discussed at Wednesday's hearing would harm Rivera's case.

    1 p.m.

    The family of an Iowa college student who had been missing for weeks until her body was found hidden in a cornfield is acknowledging, "Our hearts are broken."

    The family of 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts released a statement Wednesday that notes their grief but also thanks "all of those from around the world who have sent their thoughts and prayers for our girl."

    The statement adds, "We know that many of you will join us as we continue to carry Mollie in our hearts forever."

    Tibbetts' body was found Tuesday and 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder in her death. Tibbetts was last seen July 18.

    The Tibbetts family says they need time to grieve in private but emphasized they appreciate the "outpouring of love and support that has been shared in Mollie's name."




    ___

    10:15 a.m.

    The man charged in the kidnapping and killing of an Iowa college student is expected to make his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon.

    Cristhian Bahena Rivera is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Mollie Tibbetts, who disappeared July 18 from Brooklyn, Iowa. He's set to appear at the Poweshiek County Courthouse in Montezuma at 1 p.m.

    A criminal complaint alleges Rivera followed Tibbetts while she was out for a run, abducted and killed her, and dumped her body in a cornfield. Investigators say Rivera led them to a body believed to be Tibbetts early Tuesday.

    An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday by the state medical examiner to determine the cause of death.

    Court records don't list an attorney for Rivera, who is jailed on a $1 million cash-only bond.

    ___

    12:05 a.m.

    Authorities say a man in the U.S. illegally has confessed to kidnapping a 20-year-old University of Iowa student, killing her and dumping her body in a cornfield.

    Twenty-four-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Mollie Tibbetts of Brooklyn, Iowa. Rivera is being held on a $1 million cash-only bond. An initial court appearance is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

    Tibbetts' July 18 disappearance set off a massive search involving state and federal authorities. Division of Criminal Investigation special agent Rick Rahn says Rivera led investigators early Tuesday to a body believed to be Tibbetts.

    President Donald Trump noted the arrest and called for immigration law changes at a rally in West Virginia. And Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said residents "are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to live in our community."

    NO BOND!!!

    10 year moratorium on ALL immigration!

    Clean this mess up and deport the 30 MILLION illegal aliens, visa overstays, asylum liars and TPS!

    Turn them away at the border.

    These people are INVADING our countries around the Globe.

    It must stop.

    They are bringing diseases, crime, rape, theft, violence and murder of our citizens!

    They bring their SICK culture and ideals with them.

    They mouth off in our streets and have NO regard for authority or the LAW.

    They destroyed their countries and come here and DESTROY ours.

    Give them nothing but a boot in the rear end off our soil.

    SEND THEM BACK...ALL OF THEM.

    Is this a first, trying to use e-verify as the proof of citizenship?

    The claim that this suspect passed through the E-verify system does not mean he is a legal immigrant! The attorney is just trying to say things to give his client more favorable spin in this debate.

    Craig Lang of Yarabee Farms is a high profile republican in Iowa. He is probably trying to protect himself, his business, from potential problems at this time.

    Farms, the agricultural industry, generally looks for cheap labor, hiring illegal aliens. Yarrabee Farms' other employees were said to be fearful there would be an ICE raid.

    There needs to be an ICE raid on that business and if Mr. Lang is knowingly hiring illegal aliens he should be fined, etc. The government needs to regularly check in the future, too.

    I wonder if it was in-house hiring or third party to keep arms distance from potential fraud and potential illegality.
