    Pretrial hearing update

    I sent this to atxbs.com ... from yesterday. But I'll post an update on today when I get it.

    D'Amico
    ----

    A pre-trial hearing for James Clayton was held--sort of--yesterday in the 299th Criminal District Court, with Judge Charlie Baird. Clayton's attorney, Brian Bernard, and prosecutor Meg McGee spoke with the judge briefly before agreeing to reset the hearing to today, April 9. Clayton did not appear.

    Although most of the conversartion was out of reach for those watching, we did pick up that Bernard was, of course, noting that he would be arguing for probation, while the prosecution laughed off the idea and explained the seriousness of the case and that it invovled several burglaries, not just theft.

    In the galley were Jack Armstrong and Javier Juarez, both friends of Clayton's girlfriend (or possibly ex at this point) Layne Severson. Both told the prosecutor after the hearing that they believed Layne was duped and ensnared by Clayton and thus was not at fault for the money laundering charges now pending against her. Severson still has not been indicted, although she has a court hearing in May.

    Also in attendance was Ian Dille, a local writer who contributes to national bicycle magazines. Bernard came over and briefly spoke with myself, Dille, Armstrong and Juarez and was jovial and still curious about the interest in the case. He repeated a comment to me that he had made in a previous phone conversation: "Why has this caused such an uproar."

    It's unsure if Clayton will actually appear in court this morning. Although the hearing is set for 9 a.m., there is no set order, which means Clayton's case could come up at any time, but likely before noon. We'll also have to wait and see if the two sides strike a deal, which seems likely at some point.

    I'd love to see the expression:

    "James, good news, you're being bailed out"

    "Bad news, it's bikemojo,and they're all waiting outside for you"

    Bet he'd choose to stay in the can.

    The pre-trail hearing for James Clayton occurred this morning. Clayton's defense attorney and the prosecutor for the state, which is bringing the case against Clayton, talked with the judge for a bit and decided to bring Clayton to trial tomorrow morning.

    Sounds like the trail is/was today, Thu 4/9. Anybody know anything?

    Link to the dockets for the Travis County Criminal Courts (and who knew there were SO MANY SCUMBAGS in this county alone!) is here

    Does anyone know where to find out the results of his trial? Could not find any links on the Travis County Criminal Courts Web site that listed trial outcomes. Too early, I know, but would be useful info.

    I don't know anything about how bail works - if we all took up a collection and bailed him out to 'discuss' the case, could we then return him for a full refund when were done? Would he have to be in the same condition he was in when we got him?

    why support your local bike shop when you can just click n buy from strangers on the internet?

    what boggles my mind about this clayton fellow is why didn't he just sell all those bikes and crap that he was sitting on?

    no way would i be sitting on $60K worth of stolen bike shit that stuff woulda been kicked out to eBay as it came in.

    i mean come on a set of zipp wheels is a set of zipp wheels how you gonna identify yours from the fifty other sets for sale on eBay?

    Why support anything? Because you care about its existence perhaps? If you can't think of reasons to support local businesses, it's unlikely the explanations would appeal to you.
