It’ll be at least another month before anything moves forward on the attempted murder case of a 17-year-old Jacksonville girl.
The girl is accused of abandoning her newborn baby in a dumpster in Jacksonville last August. A pre-trial conference was scheduled for this morning, but the girl’s attorney Anne Clough, asked for a continuance.
Pre-trial is now set for June 25th. Also on that date, a judge is scheduled to hear arguments in a motion filed by Clough to suppress evidence brought against her client.
Clough this morning filed an additional motion to modify the girl’s home detention. She’s currently only allowed to attend classes at Jacksonville High School and go to her job.
The father of the child, Quincy Stone of Jacksonville, made an appearance in court on Tuesday. He’s charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse for having sex with girl, who was 16 at the time. Stone pleaded not guilty and requested a jury trial. His next court date is June 3rd.
A motion to reduce bail for Stone was continued to next Tuesday.
