    So glad you are able to access the peachcourt site. (no tree)
    I sometimes wonder what's the point for us to list in this thread all of the motions since it seems they are just throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what may stick! There is no defense to excuse the way they treated these children and I hope the court acts accordingly to convict these monsters to the full extent of the law!

    PeachCourt update on Mark Wright.
    I know I said it's not much point on listing all the motions but these two seemed to be important in that he wants all charges dropped.

    You can click on view to see the first page of the motion without paying anything. Problem is the print is so bad it's hard to read. Best I could tell is he is on trial for his life and wants the charges in the indictment dismissed. Maybe someone else can read it.

    133 Motion Motion #78 General Demurrer And Motion To Dismiss The Indictment 04/12/2021 Ryals, Melinda 16 pages

    134 Motion Motion #79 Special Demurrer And Motion To Dismiss The Indictment 04/12/2021 Ryals, Melinda 18 pages

    Thanks @Niner. I can never understand how an entire family can go along with child abuse and neglect. You would think that someone would have a twinge of conscience and say something. Not these people though, rake in the money, bury kids in the yard, move house, nothing to see here. Moo.

    (Judge) Peed hopes to set a trial date for the first quarter of 2022, he said Thursday. When a trial date is set, he says Elwyn Crocker Sr. will be tried first.

    Judge eyes early 2022 for trial date in Crocker case | WSAV-TV

    One of the big things hashed out in court Thursday was a schedule of when each defendant’s pre-trial motions will be considered.
    Beginning August 27th, the presiding judge will hear motions that attorneys weren’t able to resolve amongst themselves.
    Elwyn Crocker Senior’s will be first beginning at the end of August, then from that point on every four weeks the judge will meet with prosecutors and defense attorneys to work through the motion list. All of this is expected though, especially given the amount of discovery and overall magnitude of the case.

    Judge Gates Peed gave his estimation in court Thursday of when a trial could begin.
    “I would like to be in a position to have a jury in place in the first quarter of 2022. Like I said, that might be overly optimistic, or it might not be,” said Judge Peed.

    All three defendants are being held in Effingham County right now. In court the only time they spoke was when asked about their access to their respective attorneys.

    On Thursday, we learned each of the three defendants, who are all family members of the victims, have filed a number of motions in recent months. Elwyn Crocker Sr. has filed 40. Kim Wright has filed 107. Mark Anthony Wright has filed 79.

    Instead of addressing any of those motions at Thursday's status hearing, the court was met with some roadblocks.
    In the end, the judge came to a compromise. Once a month starting in late August, the court will hear a certain number of motions from each defendant leading up to the trial.

    The judge asked the counsel to have each defendant also meet with the State in the coming weeks to hash out what motions truly need to be brought to the court for a hearing. He wants a comprehensive list made by July 30.
    The first motions hearing is scheduled to take place on Aug. 27.
    The court wants to begin with the motions filed by Elwyn Crocker Sr.
