TelexFree: Hearing Today Regarding Merrill’s Release

A Motion Hearing was held today to discuss Merrill’s Motion to “get out of jail”, Document 33 on the Files website. From the Docket entry, the case was called, Counsel and the defendant were in attendance; Defendant calls a witness, there was Direct, cross examination, and a redirect of this witness.  The court heard closing arguments, and rules to “take under advisement” Document 33, the Motion for Release from Custody as to James Matthew Merrill.

It does not appear like the judge has yet decided whether or not to let Merrill out of custody; I will keep an eye on the docket to see if there is a ruling tomorrow.
