We spoke with Prosecutor Bob Miller today to find out more about the pre-trial conference happening at the Monroe County Courthouse on Monday, March 1.
It is scheduled for 1 pm and is open to the public. Anyone attending should ask a bailiff which courtroom it is in.
A pretrial conference is “just a status conference,” according to Miller. “It’s unlikely that anything of import will transpire.”
Miller said the prosecutor’s office is still collecting evidence, going over the coroner’s report, and scheduling depositions, etc. “It’s still very early in the process,” he said.
Monday’s pretrial conference is simply ” a report to the court that we’re making progress,”
after which another conference will be set for about 6 weeks later.
Miller estimates that the entire conference will take no more than 5 minutes.
