State responds to Curtis Reeves' appeal of bail denial

The retired Tampa police captain facing a murder charge in a Pasco movie theater shooting of a fellow patron failed to show that the judge who ordered him left behind bars ruled incorrectly, a representative for the state's top prosecutor said Tuesday.

 In considering an appeal filed by Curtis Reeves Jr., an appellate court "must determine whether (Reeves) has produced sufficient evidence to overcome the presumption of correctness that attaches to the Circuit Court's exercise of its sound discretion," wrote Assistant Attorney General John Klawikofsky, who filed the response for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
