Update on Linway Theater v. Grimshaw

Counter On August 24th, I promised to keep my readers informed on the Criminal Trespass Trial of Da Vinci Code protester Mr. Grimshaw, which was scheduled to begin December 20th. Well, that date has now come and gone, and the trial hasn't happened--to no great surprise. These things tend to drag out until everyone has forgotten what it was all about.

The prosecutor has encouraged Mr. Grimshaw towards agreeing to a "Pre-Trial Deferment" program which is basically a situation in which the defendant accepts the minimum sentence he would have gotten had he been found guilty as charged (probation & court costs) while waiving his Constitutional right to a trial by a jury of his peers. He didn't take the bait, so the trial has been postponed.

January 3rd: Rather than post another update, I revise this post with the news that the trial has been postponed yet again, for six weeks this time.
