In a conference call yesterday with the judge and prosecutor, Scott’s trial was scheduled for September 13th. Various deadlines for discovery and motions were set, including May discovery deadlines for both the defense and prosecution and a pre-trial conference on August 23rd.
The trial postponement will give Scott’s attorneys needed time to prepare a defense against a still-vague and uninformative indictment, and needed time for us–his supporters–to raise the tens of thousands of dollars that we need to cover legal and travel costs, and support activities.
If you can donate to his defense, make a check out to Coldsnap Legal Collective with EWOK! in the memo line, and send it to:
