The court room of Judge Jeffrey S. Jones was crowded this afternoon. Many cases had been re-scheduled because of the weather over the past few weeks, so the docket was full. William Bergin entered the room with his attorney Des Connell and they chatted about driving in the snow while we waited for the judge to enter.
Channel 12 news was present and allowed to have a better view of the proceedings than those of us seated in the back of the room. Before other cases were called, Mr. Connell motioned Bergin forward. It was very difficult to hear what was going on, but I believe that Mr. Connell has filed to quash the motion of recusel which had been filed by Michelle Burrows on behalf of the Kaady family. The outcome of that process is yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, Connell waved the reading of the charges and a new court date was set for February 16, 2009. There are details about which I have questions and I will try to post an update here in a few hours.
