Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

Redskins | Taylor's trial date likely pushed back again
Wed, 26 Apr 2006 21:52:46 -0700
Jason La Canfora, of the Washington Post, reports all scheduled hearings for Washington Redskins FS Sean Taylor's felony assault case have been postponed, according to members of the defense and prosecution. There will be a new judge and a new lead prosecutor, which will require additional time to prepare. Richard Sharpstein, one of Taylor's attorneys, and Ed Griffith, a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, said they expected the trial to be delayed before May 8 as a procedural matter. As of now, there are no new dates set for hearing or the trial.

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

can't this be considered a mistrial after a certain amount of time? I mean this kind of doesn't go along with a speedy trial

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

I would love to read next that "the new prosecuting attorney, after reviewing the facts, has decided that there is nothing there and has dropped the charges!"

Wouldn't that be nice!

I think the judicial system in Miami-Dade is a joke.

Don't know if that has hurt or helped Taylor. Or will hurt or help him in the future.

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

Honestly, I don't think with all the time that's gone by, all the things that have changed, would they be able to give Taylor a fair trial. I don't see HOW this thing hasn't gotten dismissed yet.

I think the reason that it has gotten this far was because the former lead prosecutor was pushing so aggressively. But that same attorney has been involved in self-promoting activities that lacked good judgment, which, if I think about it, is lethal if you are in the legal profession (lacking good judgment).

That's why I'm thinking that it may have hurt him or helped him. Because a lot of the good and the bad involves that one prosecutor.

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

Well, I knew about all that. I'm just thinking that the whole details of the case haven't even taken the secondary importance, more like the tertiary. It's all about this Grieco guy and due to this, it's constantly getting pushed back. How are people supposed to testify about an event that happened nearly a year ago?

Yeah hopefully the new lead prosecutor looks at it and throws it out. Or he just gets tired of all this crap and throws it out. It's like it's more trouble than it's worth.

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

Honestly, whoever is brave enough to become the lead prosecutor, just realizes that the only way for them to save face is to dismiss. It's become a public relations nightmare and if it goes to trial, it will almost certainly prove Taylor's innocence.

Re: Taylor's trial likely to be postponed again

Also, they're changing the JUDGE in the case. So it's not just the new prosecutor who has to get up to speed. Wonder how that will affect things? Man, I hope it doesn't drag out much longer!

I think they keep postponing it because they dont want S.T. to tackle one of them.
