An Orange County judge ruled Friday that a businessman charged with conspiring to murder an Irvine drug company executive must remain behind bars until his trial later this year. Judge Francisco P. Briseno sided with prosecutors who argued that the release of Dino D'Saachs from jail would endanger witnesses in the case surrounding the shooting of Biofem Inc. CEO James Patrick Riley.

Re "Investigators Keep Looking for Big Break in Biofem Case," April 2: Dr. Jerry D. Nilsson's only guilt seems to be his friendship with Dr. Larry C. Ford. Rather than treat Nilsson as innocent until proved guilty, the government detains him by force with military tactics and seizes his possessions. Their reasoning behind the two-day surveillance, military-style raid and thorough search of his property was that the FBI had evidence that "may link him to the Feb. 28 shooting" of Ford's business partner.
