Yes folks, you heard correctly, Robert Adams has appeared in court once again, not entered a plea, and asked for a continuance. This time because his attorney hasn't had a chance to review the evidence completely. This time, the judge specified that there will be no more continuances allowed. While some supporters seem to think this means the District Attorney has no evidence, there is no indication of this.
As I have said many times in the past, these hearings that we keep continuing are only for a Settlement Conference. The attorneys are encouraged to sit down and work out a plea deal. If Mr. Adams and his attorney wanted to force the hand of the District Attorney and have this over and done with, he could enter a plea and invoke his right to a speedy trial. The delays are all his folks. Yes, he is following the advice of his attorney. And I am sure she is trying her best to keep Mr. Adams out of jail, since that is her job. But, if they really thought that the DA had as little evidence as Mr. Adams' daughter implies to all supporters, why would it make logical sense to delay this out?
The new court date is May 23rd. The judge specified there would be NO MORE continuances allowed so the Settlement conference will happen. This means that if they reach a deal, Mr. Adams will plea in accordance with that deal. If the DA decides to drop the charges, then there will be no further action. If a deal is not reached, the matter then goes forward with a pre-trial unless it is waived. If that happens, the matter is set straight to trial.
In other news, the property the school was once located on has been foreclosed by the bank.
Sorry folks that the updates have been few and far between but life gets busy sometimes.
I for one, will be looking forward to some sort of forward movement in this case on the 23rd of May. Hopefully we might get some answers and perhaps we will finally know how Mr. Adams plans to plea. He's had nearly 8 months to contemplate it.
