Pretrial Date for Mercedes Carrera Delayed Again

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — The pretrial hearing in the Mercedes Carrera criminal case concerning multiple child sexual abuse charges against her and her husband — which was supposed to happen Thursday morning at the Rancho Cucamonga courthouse in San Bernardino County, California — has been postponed yet again, this time until January 7, 2021.

The pretrial hearing, the crucial date that would determine the jury selection process and the date of the beginning of the actual trial, has already been postponed numerous times, most recently in August, when it was re-scheduled for yesterday.

Carrera and her husband Jason Whitney were arrested after a police raid of their Rancho Cucamonga home on February 1, 2019.

Carrera and Whitney have been in county jail without trial for almost two years, first without bail and later, after they had liquidated their assets and had no source of income due to their incarceration, with bail set at $2 million for each.
