Judge Denies Request to Revoke George Spyropoulos’ Bail

PATERSON, NJ – Superior Court Judge Donald Volkert denied a motion by the office of the Attorney General of New Jersey to revoke George Spyropoulos’ bail in a hearing on November 15 in Paterson, NJ.

Spyropoulos, the manager of the Tick Tock diner in Clifton, NJ, pleaded not guilty Friday to trying to hire an assassin to kill his uncle.

The D.A. wanted to revoke bail for violating the conditions set by the Court for house arrest.  Spyropoulos was at the hearing with his lawyer, Anthony Pope and he would have been sent back to jail if the judge had agreed with the D.A.

It was claimed that “Spyropoulos had violated the terms of his house arrest (which allow him to go to lawyers’ offices, medical appointments, and religious observances) by going to appointments with friends and eating at restaurants on his way to appointments with his lawyer,” the D.A.’s office said in a statement sent to The National Herald.

They were “concerned that his non-compliance with the Court’s orders could lead to further non-compliance, which may lead to inadvertent or deliberate contact with the victim or the victim’s family.”
