Osantowski Case Delayed

Case delayed for teen accused of making threats against Detroit-area school:

Judge Linda Davis denied a motion by defense lawyer Brian Legghio to remove herself from the Andrew Osantowski case following a claim by Legghio that Judge Davis is being swayed by a community outcry. Legghio is going to appeal the decision which could take 6 to 10 weeks.

Assistant prosecutor Steven Kaplan claims…

“It’s a desperate ploy by a guilty defendant to seek to delay the proceedings in an attempt to motivate the witnesses not to return,”

Legghio defends his decision to appeal…

“The motion was filed to ensure fairness and judicial integrity,” Legghio said. “It was not a stalling tactic.”

This has got all the earmarks of a long drawn out court case.
