Jailer Deputy Earley Story, who is fighting in court to overturn his twenty-year-old fraudulent conviction for concocted pot sales, appeared in court today, March 21st 2019. His motion for summary judgement was rejected.
We covered his previous court appearance at the end of this post, which detailed the arguments on this motion.
Mr. Story’s next court date is April 5th, when his motion for judge Chris Craft to recuse himself will be heard.
