Lawyers for Accused Highland Park Parade Shooter Ask for More Time to Review ‘Volume’ of Evidence
Lawyers for the man accused of killing seven people at the Highland Park Fourth of July parade asked the judge Tuesday for more time to review the large amount of evidence shared with them.
Robert Crimo III’s lawyers said they have received 2,500 pages of evidence from prosecutors and expect to receive thousands more in the coming days.
“Because of the volume of discovery, we don’t believe setting a trial date is prudent,” Crimo’s public defense attorney Anton Trizna told Judge Victoria Rossetti.
Crimo raised his shackled right hand and flashed a peace sign as he stood to be escorted from the courtroom after the brief hearing.
Rossetti set Crimo’s next court hearing for Jan. 31. The judge said lawyers also need more time due to issues with subpoenas for victims’ medical records.
