A Montgomery County, Texas judge refused to recuse himself Monday in Adrian Peterson’s felony child abuse case, rejecting the prosecutors’ request to step aside because of what they termed bias and various recent legal disagreements.
The decision on Monday by Judge Kelly Case, who sits on the Montgomery County 9th District Court, comes after Case was said to have referred to the lead attorney for each side as “media whores.”
A hearing to weigh the prosecutors’ argument for replacing Case as presiding judge in the Peterson case has been scheduled for Wednesday.
However, Assistant Montgomery County District Attorney Phil Grant said Peterson’s lead attorney, Rusty Hardin, is scheduled to be out of town Wednesday and the hearing may be rescheduled. I am not sure Peterson will have too much luck. I have a feeling he will be screwed because of his attorney’s actions. What do you think?
