STAMFORD — An attorney charged in the Jennifer Dulos case is expected to be released from custody Monday on a reduced bond to visit his sick father in Florida.
Kent Mawhinney, who has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, has been held at the Cheshire Correctional Institution since his January arrest.
Mawhinney is expected to brought to state Superior Court in Stamford at 10 a.m. Monday, but will not appear before a judge, court officials said. Mawhinney is expected to post bond and be fitted for a GPS monitoring device before being released.
A Superior Court judge last week granted a request to reduce Mawhinney’s bond from $2 million to $246,000 in cash and real estate.
The conditions of his release require Mawhinney to surrender his passport and he will be tracked by a GPS device. He will also not be able to leave Connecticut without permission from the court, which has already approved his trip to see his father in Florida.
A court filing last week indicated that Mawhinney’s parents were willing to post a property they own in Manchester, valued at $196,000, and $50,000 in cash for his release.
The filing stated that Mawhinney’s 86-year-old father is battling lymphoma and prostate cancer that spread to his spine and ribs.
