"My concern is, there is a segment of population in this country that if you're not living the type of life they are, if you're not as pure as they are, you're a bad person. That scares the crap out of me, because I can't bring that out in jury selection," he said.
The comments were in response to a Detroit dominatrix named Lady Geanna, who told WXYZ-TV that Bashara hosted S&M sex parties in a basement below a bar he owned, the Hard Luck Lounge.
"Several of my clients or slaves have called me today. Since this has come out I've had like over 20 phone calls. They are all people who have been to his parties and asked if I was involved with them," she said.
The clients are apparently worried their identities could be revealed.
"Some of them were worried there might have been hidden cameras, things like that," she said.
Geanna claims Bashara was a "master," meaning he would take charge during S&M sessions. The local dominatrix said Bashara reached out to her after seeing her ads in a local paper.
Bashara also allegedly had a mistress, a 50-year-old woman named Rachel, who has spoken to police about her involvement with Bashara. Jane Bashara reportedly found out about the affair weeks before her death.
A woman that lived above Rachel in the Detroit suburb told ABC News that she didn't know Bashara had a wife, he was so often seen with Rachel.
"I thought they were friends at first because he did things for her. He used to take her elderly dog for a walk during the day," she said.
Griem said his client would meet with the press sometime soon, and reiterated that he did not anticipate his client getting arrested in the near future.
