Sentencing Postponed Indefinitely?

Okay, do not take this as gospel, since I got it "off the grapevine" so to speak.

Apparently the judge in Bill White's case is extremely ill and in the hospital, to the point where he may not actually be able to pass sentence at all, and we'll just leave it at that. I repeat, all this is unconfirmed.

If this is the case, and Bill has a public defender with the skills of a second-year Moo U. law student and the will to exercise those skills on his client's behalf, he should be able to obtain a mistrial rather than have another judge with no knowledge of the case at all be assigned to pass sentence, which is apparently a legal no-no, although as we know, the judicial system no longer follows their own rules and procedures when it is politically inconvenient for them to do so.

A mistrial would mean they would have to run the whole trial over, which they will do, because if they don't it would mean when they go for the Florida Facebook trial they will still be one conviction short of the third strike necessary to declare Bill a "career criminal" so he can die in prison, which is the dictatorship's desired outcome here.

More to come as I learn more.
