According to channel 7 in Amarillo, TX, Colorado State Senator Suzanne Williams will not find out if she will face criminal charges for the December car accident that killed a pregnant woman in December of 2010.
Reports Channel 7:
Pronews 7 has learned that the case involving Colorado State Senator Suzanne Williams will not be presented to the 69th District Attorney’s office as expected.
District Attorney David Green said the case will not be ready to present to his office until around the end of February. Green said that the case would not be presented to a Grand Jury in February but said he is anticipating the case to be presented to a Hartley County Grand Jury in April.
Williams allegedly was the driver of a car that killed Texas Panhandle native Brianna Gomez and could face criminal charges.
What, exactly, is taking them so long?
I hate to draw baseless conclusions, but it’s really hard not to think that this is being delayed so that any potential trial that arises from the case will occur after the Colorado Senate has adjourned.
I struggle to see what more could be discovered about this case. All witnesses are accounted for, all evidence is collected. And all emotional stuff aside, it’s a pretty straight forward case.
Originally, the DA said he was going to present the case to the grand jury at the beginning of January, now it’s not until April. And this three month delay is not in the trial itself, but in simply deciding whether or not she will be charged at all.
So if not as a special courtesy (aka special treatment) for an elected official, what’s the hold up?
