Rozay was eventually released on bail and served some time on house arrest while the case has unfolded over the past year.
Now,it has been that Ross has officially been indicted in the matter, though his legal team is reportedly not that concerned about the case.
Ross' attorney Steve Sadow is arguing that Zamudio was using the guesthouse to throw parties and use cocaine and other drugs, and that Ross was "acting in self-defense and in defense of his property when he encountered trespassers."
In other words, Sadow isn't denying the Ross pistol-whipped Zamudio, but rather arguing that Ross was within his rights to pistol-whip Zamudio.
