I think many of us will be long gone from this world by the time Nicole Linton ever faces a trial. Meanwhile, her besties will be be doing everything possible to sway public opinion to be sympathetic to her, rather than the victims.

So is this "trial" scheduled on May 28th the preliminary hearing or the actual jury trial? I'm confused.

Sorry MY mistake.... for some reason I read it wrong - no trial - it will be a preliminary hearing on 5/28. From the court site:

I wouldn't be surprised if this preliminary hearing was "reset" several more times before she's actually bound over for trial. Once that happens, we might see several more years of motions and hearings before a jury is seated.
Very frustrating, but what can you do...at least she's not going anywhere.
