RAYMOND MARTIN UPDATE: PRELIM DATE CHANGED
JACKSON/GALLATIN COs.—We’ve just learned that Gallatin County sheriff Raymond Martin’s preliminary hearing in Jackson County (Murphysboro) has been changed from Feb. 24 (as reported in this month’s Disclosure that’s on the stands now) to March 2.
He’ll be appearing in front of associate judge E.D. Kimmel instead of judge Kim Dahlen (as his son and wife did).
Also as an update: because the current edition’s Martin story was written about a week before the Monroe trial happened, we didn’t get to insert in there that Raymond has lost his public defender in his federal court case, Melissa Day. Day appeared at Tina Martin’s prelim on Jan. 26, and probably didn’t like what she heard.
Martin has been appointed a federal public defender from out of Belleville, John O’Gara. Martin’s tentatively set for a federal jury trial April 7.
More as we get it.
