POMONA, CA — A week after Pauline Catibayan’s defense argued that the mother of three has no criminal record, and that her initially $5-million bail was unreasonable for her accessory after the fact charge: Catibayan gets a lower bail for the wife of the Filipino lawyer accused of shooting his former clients.
Catibayan was with her husband Paul Mendoza Allen when police arrested them in Idaho, a day after he was accused of attempted murder.
Catibayan was given a $150,000 bail with a conditional release.
She tuned in her Philippine passport, and will be under electronic monitoring when she released.
Allen is accused of shooting his former clients, an elderly couple in their home earlier this month.
He had his bail hearing delayed until next month.
He’s being held on $10-million for the two attempted murder charges.
In the meantime, the alleged victims, whose names have been withheld because of retaliation, are recovering.
The female victim has been discharged from the hospital following surgery, while the male victim has now moved on from stable condition to rehab.
