Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez was formally charged Wednesday with attempted premeditated murder and multiple gun assault charges in relation to a shooting Monday night in San Jose, California, according to a Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office news release.
Velasquez, 39, is accused of targeting Harry Eugene Goularte, who is charged with allegedly molesting one of Velasquez’s young relatives. Velasquez faces 10 counts that could carry more than 20 years of jail time if he is convicted, per a court document.
According to court documents, Goularte, who was not injured in the incident, is accused of a lewd or lascivious act upon a child under age 14.
Goularte, 43, was released from custody Feb. 25 without bail against the DA’s orders, according to the statement from the DA’s office. He was ordered to stay in home detention, remain 100 yards away from any child under 14 and wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, which he was allegedly on his way to obtaining when Velasquez gave chase.
The child, who is under 10, told an officer from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 24 that Goularte took him into the bathroom of a daycare center and touched the child’s genitals, per a court document obtained by ESPN. The child said Goularte said not to tell anyone what happened and that this had occurred “100 times.” In the court document, the child said he witnessed other kids go into the bathroom with Goularte as well.
The only problem I have here us that Velasquez hit an innocent bystander and not the pedo.
I say stick Velazquez and Goularte in a ring together.
I’d like nothing more than to see a UFC fighter rear naked choke a pedophile until his windpipe is crushed and his eyes pop out.
Also, who is the judge that let out a pedo without bail?
I think he deserves to have his hard drive checked and to be Velazquez’s round two.
