Judge Nishigaya has now imparted a body warrant attachment wherein, if she fails to make it to the next hearing scheduled for January 17, 2023, a bench warrant will be issued to take her into custody. It has been noted that Velasquez’s civil attorney, Warren Paboojian, claimed that Patricia Goularte attempted to avoid service when contacted by them on six different occasions.
Meanwhile, Along with the posted bail, there are other requirements in place, including GPS monitoring, CTE/TBI therapy, and area restrictions. But Velasquez will get to return home to his wife and two children, something many in the MMA community are thrilled by.
