He said Andressian Sr. plans to enter a not guilty plea when he is arraigned on Monday.
"To say it's a hard time for him is an understatement, attorney Ambrosio Rodriguez said Saturday".
"To be in custody, to be accused of something like this, is something that would break anyone", he said. "There has been a rush to judgment".
The 35-year-old's lawyer Ambrosio Rodriguez said he would plead not guilty during the appearance Monday and said he would ask for a 30-day continuance in order to have more time to prepare the case. "The family mourns the death of Ara, Jr. and are in seclusion grieving". No additional information was released by the Sheriff's Information Bureau. In a brief afternoon press conference by L.A. County coroner officials, Assistant Chief Ed Winter said the department was notified of the body about 4 a.m., and the child's remains were flown to Los Angeles. It was then that the body was found. Homicide detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the remains belong to Andressian Jr. After extensive investigation, Andressian Sr. was arrested again in Las Vegas on June 23. Should he be convicted, he could face up to life in prison. The boy was last seen in the early morning hours of April 21 leaving Disneyland with his father, grandmother and aunt.
About the same time Andressian was found unresponsive in South Pasadena's Arroyo Park.

Andressian told investigators he arrived at the park with his son and waited for the golf course to open, and admitted ingesting prescription medication that was not prescribed to him, authorities said.
Andressian has been uncooperative and had given false information to investigators since he fell under suspicion, Mendoza said.
The suspect said he did not remember what happened to his child or any details that were useful in locating the boy, according to Mendoza, who said a prescription bottle was found inside Andressian's vehicle, which was doused with gasoline inside and out. Menzoda alleged the father murdered his son in a revenge plot against his estranged wife and attempted suicide in the vehicle before going to Las Vegas in an attempt to flee the country and avoid extradition. Andressian was arrested last week and charged with murder because police suspected he was planning to flee the country.
Andressian Sr. was originally arrested in Los Angeles County shortly after his son went missing, but was later released for lack of evidence.
The search for the boy spanned several Southern California counties. At that hearing, Andressian, sporting dyed, light-colored hair, smiled and joked as he told a judge that he would not resist being sent back to Los Angeles.
