Ridiculous Multiplicity of Charges for Kevin Tubbs
Arraignment Hearing for Kevin Tubbs
[Report by Gumby Cascadia]
In Federal Magistrate Thomas Coffin's courtroom today, Kevin Tubbs was arraigned on 36 new charges related to the March 30th, 2001, arson at Romania Chevrolet in Eugene.
He is being charged separately for each of the 35 vehicles destroyed, and faces a mandatory minimum sentence for each vehicle of 5 years, with the maximum penalty being 20 years PER VEHICLE.
In addition, he is being charged with an Enhancement for the use of an "incendiary bomb" which carries a mandatory minimum sentence under Oregon's Measure 11 sentencing rules of 30 years.
There will be a detention hearing for Kevin on January 3rd at 1:30 in the Federal Courthouse. Kevin's attorney will argue for his release pending trial.
A status hearing for the trial will be held February 6th at 1:30.
Trial date is set for February 21st at 9 am, although my expectation is that trial dates will be juggled a lot, due to all the different motions and timelines regarding other trials. So, pencil it in, in other words...
It is apparent to me that Kevin needs ADEQUATE legal representation. Anyone ready to start raising funds?
