Defense lawyer James Craig said his client, who denies using an alias, works as a janitor at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in South Boston (the same place former Gov. Mitt Romney held his election-night gathering last week) and has no prior record.
He offered to post $1,000 cash.
But Collins called Familia-Familia “the epitome of a flight risk” and asked Judge Michael Lauranzano to impose a far-higher bail, $100,000 cash.
Lauranzano agreed, noting not only Familia-Familia’s use of phony identification but his immigration status.
A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Dec. 10.
