(PORTLAND, Ore.) – Today, a Multnomah County Circuit Court judge authorized a request made by the defense attorneys representing Marquise Love to set over his first court appearance and arraignment until September 2, 2020. The state took no position on the request.
In granting the request, the court found that Marquise Love previously waived his legal right to a probable cause determination before a judge. As such, the court ordered Love to remain in custody with bail set at $260,000. The defense agreed that they would not seek release or a reduction in bail in this matter any earlier than September 2, 2020.
Love is being held on one count of assault in the second degree (felony), one count of coercion (felony) and one count of riot (felony).
This type of request is supported under Oregon law (ORS 135.010).
This case remains open and pending investigation by the Portland Police Bureau and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
No additional information can be released at this time.
An arrest is only an accusation of a crime. Love is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
