Sansom hearing update tomorrow – from Breaking News

Judge Terry Lewis of the Leon County Circuit Court indicated on Sept. 2 that he might have a decision ready tomorrow on whether to dismiss charges against former House Speaker Ray Sansom and his co-defendants, developer Jay Odom and former Northwest Florida State College President Bob Richburg.

It was a tight time-frame, however, since Lewis also set tomorrow as the deadline for attorneys on both sides of the case to amend their motions and responses.

This afternoon, Lewis’ office confirmed that he will not make that ruling at tomorrow’s 10 a.m. pre-trial hearing. While attorneys for the defense and prosecution will appear before Lewis on motions pertaining to “case management,” the judge does not expect to rule on the defendants’ motion for dismissal.

The motion to dismiss arguments in this case are not frivolous, and it will be interesting to discuss when the trial judge finally rules.
