Prosecution Seeks Violent Offender Status for Marlek Holmes
Written by WBTA STAFF on January 3, 2018
44 year old Marlek Holmes appeared in County Court this week for sentencing on assault charges for attacking two fellow inmates in the Genesee County Jail.
Instead of being sentenced to an additional lengthy prison term District Attorney Lawrence Friedman said he would pursue a status of “persistent violent felony offender” for Holmes potentially locking him up for life.
Holmes requested his current trial regarding charges of failing to register as a Sex Offender be postponed.
Holmes claimed he was not able to access his case documents and Law Library due to his transfer from Auburn to Wende Correctional Facility.
Judge Charles Zambito denied the request and set Jury Selection for his trail to begin January 22nd.
Holmes has possibly had the most indictments filed against him in County History and has spent most of his adult life in prison.
