Bench Trial Held in Starke Circuit Court

A bench trial was held yesterday in Starke Circuit Court in the case of Johnny DuBois.

During a pre-trial motion and instructions hearing on Tuesday, both the defense and the state agreed to waive the right for a trial and the defense asked for a bench trial which was granted.

Both sides presented evidence in the case yesterday and Judge Kim Hall took all evidence under advisement. Judge Hall will deliver a verdict today at 10 a.m.
