    Is there any information on why the trial date keeps being pushed out? Will it really take place on 05/07/2019? IMO it appears the defense is attempting to get their hands on ALL the evidence. What else would it be?

    Don't know IF he was sentenced re bold above - as there are no more hearing dates on docket.

    And if I want to see these files - I need to pay...

    Anyone hear anything about his sentence? TIA
