Wallace is old(41) and hard. I don't see him flipping on Hernandez, I'm guessing he mentored him.
Ortiz's court appointed lawyer said 1) he didn't have the $1000 to post if bail was only $10,000, and 2) he planned on arguing for bail but required discovery documents before doing so. Next setting for him is August 14.
I wonder if the DA will play a cat-n-mouse game with Ortiz by delaying the opportunity for him to request protective custody until they can secure his cooperation through a deal. Ortiz was described as "afraid, depressed, gentle, confused, and crying". Now is the most dangerous time for him.
