In a hearing yesterday taking place at a Longueuil, Quebec courtroom, the three defendents involved in the home invasion of Jonathan Duhamel appeared before a judge. John-Stephen Clark-Lemay, 22, Anthony Bourque, 20, and finally Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, 20, the ex-girlfriend of WSOP champ Jonathan Duhamel, who was beaten and robbed inside his home on December 21st, 2011.
Bianca Rojas-Latraverse is accused of masterminding last month’s attack that sent Duhamel to hospital and was charged with taking advantage of her relationship with Duhamel to disclose privileged information to her alleged accomplices.
Judge Pierre Belisle denied bail to two of the three defendants, Clark-Lemay and Rojas-Latraverse who are presently in prison. Anthony Bourque was granted bail.
The defendants are facing five charges including conspiracy, armed robbery, breaking and entering, forced confinement and assault. All three are scheduled to return to court on February 22nd.
The assailants stole $40,000 in Canadian $100 dollar bills and 74,000 Euros from Duhamel’s safe. They also took a Rolex watch and the WSOP Championship bracelet.
Investigators say that woman told them she received text messages from Rojas-Latraverse in the weeks leading up to the robbery, announcing the attack would take place.
“I’m scared,” Rojas-Latraverse allegedly wrote to the woman, her friend. “Tomorrow I have something big that could cost me my life.”
The details were revealed by Longueuil police Det. Jean François Lapolice at the bail hearing yesterday.
