    If you are one of the apparently few folks concerned about the lack of indictments in this matter, don't forget who occupied the state AG office during this time frame.

    Wow, charges were brought over two years ago and there hasn't yet been a preliminary hearing--and by the time the hearing is now scheduled to take place it will be over two and a half years.

    I can't imagine the prosecution would have been allowed to be the cause of such delay (that whole constitutional right to a speedy trial thing) so as is all too often typical in these cases, the defense has likely strung things out.

    Judges ought to keep in mind that the concept of "justice delayed is justice denied" applies to the justice sought be citizens who may have been wronged as well as the accused looking to clear his/her name.
