Murder suspect in YSL trial granted bond after attorney arrested inside courthouse

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A Fulton County judge has granted bond to one of the defendants in the trial involving members of the alleged Young Slime Life Gang.

Channel 2′s Michael Seiden was at the Fulton County Courthouse on Friday as Judge Ural Glanville granted Miles Farley a bond of $650,000.

Farley is facing charges of murder, conspiracy to violate the RICO Act, two counts of criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Recorded jail phone calls between Farley, who according to the indictment also goes by Lil Miles, and the mother of his child have been used as evidence in the trial. Prosecutors say the calls show he was trying to hide evidence from police.

This comes just one day after Farley’s attorney, Anastasios Manettas, was arrested as he entered the courthouse on Thursday.

Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat says Manettas tried to take prescription medication into the courthouse at a security checkpoint.

Moments after his release Thursday night, Manettas spoke exclusively to Channel 2 Action News.

He claimed that his arrest came on the heels of a bond hearing involving his client.

“In my opinion, [it] didn’t go very well for the state,” he said.

If Farley posts bond, he will be required to wear ankle and wrist monitors, stay off social media and will have a 10 p.m. curfew with the exception of a medical emergency, according to the bond order.

Farley also learned that his case had been severed, forcing him to stand trial at a different date. Judge Glanville made that decision on Thursday following Manettas’ arrest.

“I’m not a criminal. I’m a patient,” said Manettas during an interview Friday. “It was humiliating.”

Manettas will still represent Farley.
