Federal Judge Henry S. Perkin has ordered a hearing on whether Sean William’s trial against Lancaster Police Officer Philip Bernot should continue. Williams was a no-show for the first day of the scheduled trial and the defendant’s attorneys filed a Request to Dismiss.
The hearing will be held on March 24th in the Federal Courthouse in Allentown (see below).
RELEASE THE RECORDS!
From the LNP article pictured left (click here):
…The prosecutor’s office, in a court filing Thursday, wrote “the release of the coroner records and papers of Jonathan Luna poses a threat of substantially hindering or jeopardizing the ongoing investigation.”
What “ongoing investigation?” Is that a joke? Also from the article:
…They were in archives housed in the basement of the government building on North Queen Street.
It’s unclear how long the records had been there. The archives manager has said as far as he know [sic], no one had asked for them in the ten-plus years he’s been there until a deputy coroner sought them.
So, again I ask: what investigation? Ten years? Release these records!
