    Sementilli's court date of 2/21/19 no longer on court site. So don't know if they will have separate trials. It did have the 4/29/19 trial date on 1/18/19 when I first looked.

    6/5/18: Discovery Status update hearing. 6/28: Discovery update Status & set trial hearing. The only thing that was sealed was the search warrant.

    2/21/19 Update: Judge Coen goes on the record in this case. He states that defendant Sementilli missed the first bus. The court expects that there will be a motion to sever the two cases but nothing has been filed yet. Discovery is discussed. Mr. Simmrin states he is waiting on another batch of discovery from the people. Mr. Simmrin is pushing to move the already set trial date forward because he has no idea how much information is on the discovery drive he has not see yet. The court states that there is nothing that you (Mr. Simmrin?) can do at this time. The court will leave the trial date to stand for now. The court states the matter is continued for pretrial & motion hearing on March 27th. The court adds that the trial date still remains.

    I am reserving judgement out of respect for our business relationship and my concern for the girls. She deserves a fair trial by an impartial jury. I am greatly relieved to see that the DA is not seeking the DP.

    I was just stunned by this whole mess. I spoke to her the day after, so her arrest came as a complete shock.

    No end to the heavy sighs here.

    I am relieved in a way that I didn't know Fabio. I don't recall ever meeting him, though the older daughter seems to think I might have when they first started coming to my business.
