High Desert developer John “Dino” DeFazio, charged with two counts of alleged perjury related to testimony he gave before the San Bernardino County Grand Jury last year, appeared before Judge Michael Dest in San Bernardino County Superior Court this morning.

The case was continued and a July court date was set.

Sources indicate a primary reason for the delay in the case is the lack of cooperation in turning over discovery by county prosecutors.

The discovery in question relates specifically to all testimony and statements made by former Assistant Assessor and key witness Adam Aleman.
