Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Diane Sullivan on Tuesday set a Jan. 24 preliminary hearing and trial date for champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The judge also increased Mayweather’s bail by $28,000, to $31,000. He has one week to pay the increased bail amount, which was requested by Chief Deputy District Attorney Lisa Luzaich, who argued Mayweather should be held “to the same standards as other community members.”
Mayweather, 33, who did not attend Tuesday’s hearing, faces eight charges that stem from a Sept. 9 dispute, including felony coercion, grand larceny, robbery and misdemeanor domestic violence.
Sullivan ordered Mayweather to stay away from his former girlfriend, Josie Harris, but said a Family Court judge in California will have final say on whether Mayweather can have contact with his two minor children.
