District attorney is accused of “Serving two masters” in Cain Velasquez’s case

The controversy arose as both cases are working against one another. The district attorney’s office, due to the two active cases, would be working against both Valesquez and Goularte. Evidence has been allowed in one case while being disallowed in the other. Velasquez’s lead defense attorney, Mark Geragos said:

It’s obvious to me that the DA is serving two masters here and can’t be trusted to prosecute fairly.”

The attorney argues that the district attorney must turn over all evidence given in Goularte’s case, and must also be given to Cain Velasquez’s case. The district attorney said that they would turn over relevant details only. Judge Delgado ordered some to be shared while others have been denied.

Goularte has not been called as a witness in Velasquez’s felony case and therefore the judge ruled that additional discovery would not be required. Goularte’s stepfather was allegedly struck by a bullet in the arm, if this person acted as a witness then new evidence could be given.
