Both parties filed their motion papers about withdrawing guilty plea. I have not seen them but will have them within the next few days and will post them.
Defense attorney requested adjournment.
Prosecutor noted that family of victim traveled 12 hours by bus to attend today. Also, Kolko has played game of delaying by changing lawyers four times and delayed trial for four years. Also noted was refusal of Kolko to cooperate with pre-sentencing evaluation at NJ’s Avenal diagnosis and treatment program for sex offenders.
Judge rejected adjournment motion and gave Kolko’s attorney 20 minutes to consult with client.
