Public Defender files motion for continuance in Chad Smith case
The Public Defender filed a motion for continuance of the preliminary hearing in Chad Smith's case. That motion will be heard on July 18 at 9:45, at the same time intervention is scheduled for this case.
After the Conflict Counsel's office declared a conflict in representing Chad Smith, the Court appointed the Public Defender's office to represent him on July 5.
Don't know the reason but I am sure the Public Defender will say it is because their office got appointed recently.
Preliminary is scheduled for July 20.
