For all you interested in what's going on crime and courts-wise for the coming week, lend me your ears. This is your spot for discovering what's up with what's going down.
First, Michael Curry may be on a trial docket for Columbus, but don't expect his trial to start any time soon. There's still a motion for a change of venue lurking about that hasn't been ruled on, which would delay things even more if the defense gets its way. Think about it - if everyone has to relocate at least 100 miles from Columbus to do this trial, it's going to take a little longer.
Second, the Bleckleys - accused of the ponzi-like scheme that allegedly netted some $3 million - will not appear before a jury this week. Everyone shook hands and agreed to postpone the case until the new year. Auld Lang Syne, y'all.
Meanwhile, what's going on with the Michael Jason Registe case? Good question. Regisite's attorney, Stacey Jackson, got booted by Superior Court Judge Doug Pullen recently and his new lawyer, whoever that might be, is going to need some time to prepare the case. Registe remains in custody and isn't going anywhere, so don't expect attorneys to be racing to the courthouse to try this case before the year ends.
There's your homework. We'll check in throughout the week and see how you've done.
