An attorney for jailed Bryan Stow beating suspect Louie Sanchez is expected to ask a judge today to lower his client's bail from its current $500,000. Gilbert Quinones, Sanche'z lawyer, told reporters last week that his client "doesn't seem like the type of individual who would do this," in reference to the near-fatal beating given to Stow outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, according to the Daily Breeze.Last week, Sanchez's friend and neighbor, Marvin Norwood, sought a similar bail reduction. That request was denied.

Sanchez, who faces three felony and two misdemeanor charges, is thought to have attacked at least two others during that same Dodger opening night game.

"Prosecutors say the high bail amounts are justified because Stow’s injuries were so severe," notes CBS2.

Sanchez and Norwood are scheduled for arraignment on August 10th. If convicted, they could be sentenced to nine years in prison.
