    After a pre-trial hearing with Cummings, Shoemaker said they were trying to negotiate a plea deal in exchange for testimony against the other defendants.

    On the table in the deal, according to Terry Shoemaker, are the two "upper level" trafficking charges, each of which carries a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years.

    By working with the three lesser charges, Shoemaker said he hopes Cummings would end up with a sentence of 15 to 30 years.


    Shoemaker clarified the deal being worked out is in no way tied to the search for Haleigh who is now presumed dead, according to Sheriff Hardy.

    Failing the deal, Cummings is scheduled to go to trial July 19.


    Tommy goes to trial June 20th per First Coast News.

    By Dana Treen
    In exchange for testimony at possible trials of his former wife and her brother, Ronald Cummings is negotiating for a 15-year sentence on drug-trafficking charges, his attorney said this morning.

    Folowing a a pretrial hearing in Putnam County Cummings was given a July 19 trial date, his attorney said he and Cummings hope to have the deal within two weeks or possibly sooner.

    An attempt stalled Wednesday to make a deal with the state, said Shoemaker.

    The sentencing range would likely be a 15-year minimum mandatory with a possible 30-year maximum, Shoemaker said.

    Shoemaker said negotiations are not finished but part of the expected deal would mean Cummings would not be sentenced until after the Croslins are tried if those cases go to a jury.

    Croslin Jr. is scheduled for court this afternoon for a pretrial conference.

    At his pretrial conference, he could offer to accept a plea agreement if one has been worked out with prosecutors. Otherwise, the judge will assign a trial date and a final date the court will accept a negotiated deal.

    Misty Croslin is scheduled for court in June.

    Can Shoemaker have this continued to a future date? If not we may see the plea that LP talked about or RC may choose to go to trial...should be an interesting day.

    I found the Wesh twitter address. I think as it is legit media, it is okay to post. If not, mods please let me know or delete. They mention the RC and the hearing today so they might tweet from court--we can hope :)

    This article says Ron going to court but no mention of Tommy. Also, just heard on the scanner that transport from Putnam Co. Jail to court house. Must be Ronald.

    I have contacted several media outlets and they say no live stream. But will update at noon and in the evening. It really bugs me that they won't live stream in the Haleigh case. They do for Casey Anthony all the time. :banghead:

    I am pretty sure if he wanted to have it continued he would. Look at Snodgrass, his case has been continued over and over since 2007. Sounds as if Ron was taken from jail to the court house around 7:44AM, so it looks likes it's a go. Or, it could be another inmate that was taken from Putnam to the court house. Nothing on Tommy yet though..odd. He has court today as well. Maybe his hearing is later this afternoon. Still checking into it.

    They will use the term "general unsupervised" while being held in a room before a court hearing especially when coming in from another jail/county.
