Former Town Manager Darrell Williams due back in court on Wednesday February 17, 2010 at 9:00 AM.
Thanks to an attentive resident, Darrell Williams' latest continuance was shortened by a long stretch. The resident, curious as to why Williams' case was not listed on the December 2009 docket, began calling to find out just when the next court appearance was scheduled. It soon became apparent there had to be a clerical error since Williams' next court date was scheduled for December of 2010! This was rectified as soon as possible, but with the January calendar already full; the next open date was Wednesday, February 17 at 9:00 am.
This case has been continued over and over for various reasons. A trip to the emergency room for "an upper respiratory infection" a couple of days before one court appearance gave Williams' a reprieve, even though there were no restrictions on the discharge papers. The residents of Amity arrived at court only to turn around and go home again. More time out was needed so Williams' lawyer could take a vacation on the River Nile, meanwhile the victims in Amity were still working hard to get by and waiting for justice.
PLEASE come if you can and let the judge know the victims of this crime have not forgotten, nor will they be forgotten by the passage of time.
