Nima Momeni, the Bay Area tech entrepreneur accused of fatally stabbing Cash App founder and crypto executive Bob Lee in San Francisco, is being held on suicide watch as he sits in a California jail cell awaiting his next court date, according to his attorney. But it’s standard operating procedure, not because he’s exhibited any warning signs, she told Fox News Digital Wednesday.

“San Francisco County Jail treats ALL people with no criminal history arrested in high-profile cases as suicide risks,” Momeni’s defense attorney, Paula Canny, wrote in an email from Paris. “It’s not unique to Nima. It’s SOP.”

Her brother appeared on Momeni’s behalf at his first court date last week because she was traveling. The suspect’s arraignment is scheduled for April 25.

Momeni made his first court appearance last week, wearing an orange jail sweatshirt and pants, a black coronavirus mask and shackles around his ankles. With no plea entered, he is now scheduled for an April 25 arraignment.

Momeni’s sister Khazar Momeni was at the courthouse for the proceedings. Lee met with his suspected killer’s sister hours before his death. Investigators pieced together the crime by reviewing text messages exchanged between Lee and Khazar.

In one conversation, she reportedly told the tech titan that he “handled himself with class” after her brother allegedly was aggressive with him.
