LA Coliseum arrests: Executives plead not guilty
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Four people facing corruption charges pleaded not guilty Friday after being linked to rave parties at the Los Angeles Coliseum. They are accused of mismanaging public funds and diverting money for their own use.
The judge set bail for the four Friday, but said they must surrender their passports and prove that any bail money comes from legitimate sources.
Former L.A. Coliseum general manager Patrick Lynch, former events manager Todd Destefano and rave promoter Reza Gerami were arrested Thursday. Another rave promoter, Pasquale Rotella, surrendered Friday. Two other men, janitorial contractor Antonio Estrada and former technical manager Leopold Cadillo are also charged in the case, but are out of the country and could not appear in court.
