Honecker emphasized to Judge¬†James J. McGann that the stipulation of probable cause was only for the purpose of today’s detention hearing and that the defense reserves to right to challenge probable cause in future proceedings, including a possible hearing to suppress evidence presented by the prosecution. The defense attorney raised the possibility of challenging probable cause and moving to suppress evidence again while speaking to members of the media following the hearing.
