BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) – Attorneys for Stacey Pomrenke say they need more time to review evidence in the case and are now asking that the trial of Bristol Virginia Utilities’ chief financial officer be pushed back.
In a motion filed this week, Pomrenke’s attorneys said they have insufficient time to prepare for trial, which right now is set to begin next month.
“The government has been preparing this case for over three years and it is inherently unjust for the defendant to have less than 45 days to review this voluminous discovery and prepare for trial,” Pomrenke’s attorneys said in federal court documents.
Pomrenke is accused of several crimes, including conspiracy and fraud stemming from the ongoing BVU corruption investigation. She has pleaded not guilty to all counts.Click here to read the latest topics related to BVU.
