Webster defense team steps down; trial continues March 28

Posted

BRIGHTON – The next installment of the murder trial of Jeremy Webster takes place Monday, March 28, almost two months after the defendant's lawyers stepped down.

Webster is accused of murdering a 13-year-old during a road-rage incident almost five years ago.

He's due in conference for a status conference.

An Adams County judge removed two of his defense attorneys (both from the public defender's office) Jan. 26.  According to the judge's order, the two public defender attorneys filed motions for either a mistrial or permission to be removed from the case Jan. 16, citing a conflict of interest under the state's rules of professional conduct. There was no indication of the basis for the conflict of interest.

The judge appointed new counsel for Webster. The minute order from www.courts.state.co.us also said the public defender's offense does not intend to withdraw from the case  and said it plans to file a motion asking the judge to reconsider the decision.,
