Nationally known San Francisco based defense attorney J. Tony Serra has
been retained on Kirstin’s behalf by supporters believing in
her innocence. At a January 2005 hearing Kirstin’s retrial
date was set for November 7, 2005. Kirstin’s family and
supporters are unable to post her Court ordered $500,000 bail, so she
remains in pre-trial custody at the Southern Nevada Woman’s
Correctional Facility in Las Vegas.
In November 2004, Mr. Serra successfully defended Richard Tabish, who
was acquitted after a retrial in Las Vegas of murdering casino heir Ted
Binion in 1998. Evidence indicates that Mr. Binion died from a
self-inflicted heroin overdose.
