StickyDrama today received an email from a local Phoenix reporter who had interviewed us on June 3.
Hock was indicted yesterday or the day before, which is the beginning of a lengthy process. It will probably be eight, ten months to a year before he either goes to trial or pleads guilty.”
As the reporter explains, Hock’s trial might not even begin until a year from now—unless he pleads guilty, which seems unlikely at this point.  An indictment is not a trial; an indictment is strictly to formalize the charges against someone.
Initial news reports stated that Hock was being held without bail.  StickyDrama is investigating whether that is still or will remain the case.  
If our readers have other questions for us to address in future updates, leave them in this post’s comments.

  1. By the way people … since everybody here doesn’t have a clue about legal matters in Arizona … In 2001 or 2002 the voters in Arizona passed a law that stated “any and all people charged with any type of sex offense are to be held without bond until at least the pre-trial court date …

  2. wow he really fucked up this time! i still love the moment when he snapped his fingers and told that dude “i’m the king of stickam bitch!’ *SNAP*

  3. STICKY, you need to throw a blowout “hock conviction” party when the date is annonced for the stickydrama community,,,,looking at all the negative responses towards hock, itd be a good turn out IMO

  4. this is not shocking, it usualy takes the courts a year to go to trial and as far him being released on bail. not gonna happen with his 2 old warrants and his evading of them

  5. nah cookie he will get credit for the first year he served. so if he gets 5 years like everyones saying he will only have to go for 5 minus the time he was already in there rotting while they got their case together

  6. they arent going to rush to get someone like hock through the system, the longer it takes for him to get to trail, the longer hes going to stay in jail. The cops obviously know they dont have enough evidence to convict him of rape, and no one is really coming forward to charge him with stat rape charges so i doubt that would even come into play… but then again i dont really know shit

  7. I wouldn’t be so sure. Plea deals are usually offered for two reasons. Either to get petty cases out of the way so DA’s can work on high profile cases, or to save the people the time and cost of a trial when the evidence isn’t a slam dunk.
    This is a high profile case and there is a video recording of the assault. There are going to be no easy deals on the table. Too much media coverage, too much evidence. DA’s only plead out when they have a reason to, and they have a lot of reasons not to in this case.
