Tristan Carr's November 1 court appearance!

Due to a medical appointment in Springfield MO, I was unable to attend hearing #2 that took place in the Judicial Building in Forsyth, Missouri on November 1, 2016. Apparently not much transpired as only a few motions showed up on the docket for Tristan Carr.

Of some note was the successful motion by the defense to change judges. Judge Williams is out and now Judge Eighmy will be in charge. Eric Eighmy is an associate judge of the 38th Judicial Circuit Court in Taney County, Missouri. He was elected on November 4, 2014, for a term that expires on December 31, 2018..

Previously, he was a municipal court judge for the municipalities of Forsyth in Taney County and Highlandville in Christian County. Between January 20, 2014, and his ascension to the associate circuit bench, he was the judge for the municipality of Hollister in Taney County during Judge Randall Anglen's leave from the bench. I don't have much else on this man, but had to wonder why the defense didn't desire to stay with Judge Williams??

Other motions made by the defense included asking for Mr. Carr to be allowed in normal clothes with no restraints while he is in court. That one is pending, and a request to limited pre-trail publicity in accordance with Rule 16. This too appears to be pending.

There was no mention of a future court date at the time of this post.
