Lusk attorney's plan on asking for change of venue
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Linda Lusk, the former Prosser mayor accused of child molestation appeared at a hearing in court today.
Her attorneys said they plan to ask for a change of venue because of media coverage and online posts about their client. But, the more common request coming from the attorney's is for delays.
James Egan asked the judge to push back the May 16th trial to May 31st because of a scheduling conflict.
After the hearing, KNDU talked with the family of the boy Lusk is accused of molesting. His mother did not want to go on camera, but said she's frustrated by the delays in the case and at one point abruptly stopped talking as she became emotional.
The defense and prosecution will meet again next week.
