Asheville 11 Court Update

From the Asheville 11 Defense CommitteeThis is an update on the December 6th plea hearing.

It was snowing little flurries and ice was already on the ground as people were told to line up outside of the courthouse. Once everyone was able to find their seats the superior court calendar was called. Beside the cold weather settling in Asheville, it seems that this is all beginning to feel uncomfortably familiar for those being forced to attend.

This morning, the 6th of December, was a plea hearing for which each of the defendants were to give a ‘not-guilty’ or ‘guilty’ plea. The main outcome of this morning though was that all eleven defendants now have a new trial date of January 24th. This date seems more likely rather than the last date of the 17th but it is still not confirmed. As of now it is unclear as to how many lawyers and defendants will be able to go to trial that soon. It is best to assume that this could be a definitive trial date. Any changes to that date will be updated on asheville 11defense.com

The District Attorney’s office has still to decide how they are going to try everyone; individually, one big group, a few smaller groups. In Buncombe county it is up to the discretion of the DA who is to go to trial with who. Defendants are able to appeal if they are not pleased by what was decided or who has been joined with one another. So, this could be a trial date for some depending on how lawyers are deciding to handle their defense.

This is all the legal updates we have currently so let’s move to more pertinent devlopments. The defendants looked fabulous as usual! This time though, they really rounded their styles out well. It was just right for this appearance. It must be said that each of their outfits had.. a certain avidity to them. We should all expect to be wowed more and more in the coming months as they will only dress more fabulously.

Thank you all for your support! Please continue to defend the Asheville Eleven!
