Updates on The Trial Date, Other News In The Case

Ya'all thought I fell into a black hole, didn't you?

Casey's October trial date has been deferred. Casey's latest Dream Team attorney, Death Penalty expert Andrea Lyon, stated that she plans to file a flurry of motions after Labor Day and requested additional time. Judge Strickland scheduled a status/pretrial hearing for January 21. (January 21 also happens to be my son's birthday. "Happy Birthday, Dex! Now, settle in for a night of channel-flipping the Nancy Grace and Greta shows!")

There was also a request to proceed on the check fraud cases against Casey. Casey's friend, Amy, the victim, is expected to sign an affidavit to pursue a speedy trial.

Roy Kronk, the meter reader who found the body, is requesting more money toward his legal expenses. With the latest payment, Kronk's legal fees will be $12,500. Kronk was provided with an attorney to deal with the media, and to block the release all of his personal cell phone records, claiming privacy on some calls. Although it's rare of a witness such as Kronk to receive legal help, the Mayor has said that since it occurred on county time, the county has an obligation to take care of their own.

Am I the only one who is getting a hinky feeling from the meter reader? Unless he was fooling around on his girlfriend, or something else, that he doesn't want to get out, I can only think there is something about the case he doesn't want known.

My hinky meter has been going off from the beginning re: the meter reader...but I really can't put my finger on why.

What's this about a motion being heard to call Tim Miller as a material witness for the defense? and blocking Padilla et al from testifying for the prosecution?

Sprocket has a short entry on it, but with no clarification.
