My friend T-Bone - who protected vulnerable inmates from rapists - refused to sign a plea bargain admitting guilt to crimes that would have sent him to prison for years, and tried to exercise his right to a trail. When he showed up in court, the prosecutor refused to allow him a trial by postponing the trail date. This is a common strategy used when a prosecutor has a weak case, so that the prosecutor can buy time to build a case or increase the pressure on T-Bone to sign a plea bargain. T-Bone and his wife both believe T-Bone is innocent of the crimes he was charged with. T-Bone is trying to force the prosecutor to go to trial soon, so he can be freed. The new trial date now is July 11th.
