Motion for brief continuance in new case against Jon Goldberg requested by District Attorney granted until this Friday afternoon
However, the DA filed a motion to request a continuance yesterday, for a brief continuance, until next week.
Defense objected. Both attorneys presented arguments. Judge Dale Reinholtsen continued the preliminary until this Friday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
Deputy District Atorney Luke Bernthal is asking for a brief continuance because he is in trial and PC 1050 ( g) (2)
"2) For purposes of this section, good cause includes, but is not limited to, those cases involving murder, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 187, allegations that stalking, as defined in Section 646.9, a violation of one or more of the sections specified in subdivision (a) of Section 11165.1 or Section 11165.6, or domestic violence as defined in Section 13700, or a case being handled in the Career Criminal Prosecution Program pursuant to Sections 999b through 999h, or a hate crime, as defined in Title 11.6 (commencing with Section 422.6) of Part 1, has occurred and the prosecuting attorney assigned to the case has another trial, preliminary hearing, or motion to suppress in progress in that court or another court. A continuance under this paragraph shall be limited to a maximum of 10 additional court days."
Goldberg looks completely different than the original booking photo. First, he got a, haircut, short and close cropped hair, now he is clean shaven. He looked quote relaxed talking to his attorney, Mr. Casey Russo.
