Balderas, Jorge

Jorge Balderas and his attorney withdrew their motion challenging his previous plea of guilty to second-degree kidnapping during a hearing Wednesday.

Defense Attorney Daniel Taylor said his client would instead plead guilty to an additional charge of intimidating a witness. In exchange, the defense will be able to argue for a lighter sentence than was allowed in the previous plea deal.
