A preliminary hearing scheduled for Friday, March 8 for Saeid Maralan, the former Laguna Beach rug merchant charged with 14 criminal counts involving sexual abuses, was postponed yet again at the behest of defense attorney John Barnett. A new date is set for April 12.
Barnett requested more time to receive “subpoenaed phone records.” This was the sixth postponement of a preliminary hearing, dating back to last March.
Maralan, was present in court, is the former manager of the now defunct Sirous and Sons.
