Corinthian Pete is currently in jail on $5,000 bail for vandalizing a couple’s car.
Court documents say the 31-year-old dated one of the men over a decade ago.
Pete currently has five counts of criminal trespassing and criminal mischief against him in less than a week.
According to court documents, a few weeks ago Pete tried to contact the victim via social media and when the victim didn’t get a response, he went to his house.
The victim, who is now married, says he and his husband fear for their lives.
“Two adult men who are concerned for their safety and bought guns over the weekend because Harris County’s criminal justice system with air citations surrounding criminal justice is not protecting them.”
That’s the claim made by attorney Jolanda Jones after her client smashed his car window at his home this week.
She says Corinthian Pete went to the victims’ home unannounced.
“They live in hotels and they hire bodyguards for someone who is allowed to go to their house without permission, arrested on the 18th and the 19th,” Jones said.
Court records show that Pete showed up at the couple’s home on Friday, March 18, and pounded on the door.
Jones says the police were called and Pete was arrested for criminal trespassing.
The Harris County District Attorney requested bail, but Pete told the judge he was penniless and too broke to pay.
Pete was released on a non-cash writ, which does not require money to be deposited in order to be released.
The following day, Pete returned to the couple’s home and was arrested again on criminal trespassing charges.
The state required $5,000 bail, but Pete was released under the prison reform known as the O’Donnell Consent Decree.
This required the court to let the person go if they were too poor to pay their required bail.
Court documents show Pete was charged twice with criminal mischief during his March 20 detention for kicking a police car and destroying a prison computer.
Documents show Pete was released from the couple’s home for the third time on Wednesday and returned to the couple’s home, destroying their car and security cameras.
“If you are not safe at home, where can you be safe? It’s the only place you should feel safe,” Jones says. “In his particular case, he has already shown that he doesn’t care. He doesn’t care what the judges say so you’re free to fight your case from the outside. You can’t do these things. You can’t keep breaking the law. You can’t keep tormenting these people.
In the state’s motion to hear bonds, filed March 18, the state ordered the defendant to have no contact with the complainant, that the defendant submits to electrical surveillance, and prohibits the defendant from residing without a GPS monitor leaving. The prosecutor’s office says the application was not signed.
The office told ABC 13 by phone: “We have great sympathy for the victims in this case. The files speak for themselves. We do everything that is legally possible.”
Corinthian Pete is currently in jail on $5,000 bail.
He’s scheduled for another bail check.
Jones says: “I hope they protect my customers. My clients shouldn’t have to live in their own homes in fear for their lives.”
