Judge Says No To Lower Bond For Teen Accused Of Attempted Murder

18-year old Michael Lamenca, accused of shooting a Grand Junction man was back in court asking for a lower bond that wasn't granted.

Lamenca has been charged with first degree attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a dangerous weapon.

His attorney's asked for his previously set a bond of $300,000.00 to be reduced to $150,000.00. This is because Lamenca and his family are not able to pay the original amount. The judge did not modify the bond leaving it at $300,000.00.

Authorities say, Lamenca shot 21 year old Jeremy Rosales in the stomach on October 7, 2007.

Rosales is still in the hospital, but recently out of intensive care.
