    Former Treasurers Trial Moved to February

    By Sue Caldwell, Reporter
    The trial for former Jackson County Treasurer Beth Sallee that was scheduled to begin December 11, 2018 has been continued to February 12, 2019 after a motion was filed on November 21 by Sallee's attorney David S. Hoskins, making a request on her behalf requesting a continuance of at least 60 days because he needs more time to read and analyze the discovery provided by the United States, which consists of a large number of financial records and numerous witness statements, and to take other steps necessary to defend the indictment, including interviewing and investigating potential witnesses. Also, plea negotiations are continuing and counsel is optimistic that an agreement will be reached. The additional time requested is excludable under Section 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B) of the Speedy Trial Act, because failure to grant the continuance "would deny counsel for the defendant...the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence."
