    Now this is strange. I was looking up another case name in the Central County court site and Spurgeon's name popped up on that county, even though I have him in South County. This must be another case - with a different accomplice as they both have the same case #.

    No. This is a pretrial readiness type conference. Once both parties appear and say they are ready to proceed to trial then the court will set an actual trial date and it will say TRIAL - JURY or TRIAL - BENCH next to the names.

    This is strange - these 2 were in South County & they appeared in Central County this morning while I was looking for Mathew Sullivan's case. Under Judge Michael T. Smyth. Cook & Spurgeon were usually under Judge Theodore Weathers.
