According to the documents, Cortez was affected on December 18 when he stabbed and killed a pedestrian on Coal near Tulane.
Cortez pleaded on December 27 to be released before the trial on the advice of the judge but was denied, on the condition of the case. Documents show he was driving with a revoked license and was on probation at the time of the crash that killed a pedestrian in Nob Hill.
Prosecutors noted his failure to comply with those conditions and his 20-year criminal history – including previous charges of a similar nature.
