Lawyer to seek release of Saudi Arabia air force sergeant held in Vegas on child rape charge

A defense attorney says he'll seek the release from jail of a 23-year-old Saudi Arabia air force sergeant facing a child rape charge in Las Vegas.

Mazen Alotaibi (MAH'-zen ah-loh-TAH'-bee) stood in shackles Thursday and stared at the courtroom floor while a Las Vegas judge delayed an evidence hearing pending a bail hearing Friday.

Defense attorney Don Chairez (shar-EHZ') said later that he'll offer to have Alotaibi turn in his Saudi diplomatic passport if he's allowed to post bail.

Alotaibi faces kidnapping, sexual assault with a minor and felony coercion charges that could get him decades in prison.

Police allege that Alotaibi pulled a 13-year-old boy into a sixth-floor room at the Circus Circus hotel and sexually assaulted him the morning before Las Vegas' big New Year's Eve celebration.
