Well May and June came and there was still no trial. :(
Last I heard the May trial was pushed back to the fall, October time frame. I had heard that the defense asked for more time so it was granted.
I have also heard that the October trial will probably also be pushed back. It is looking like the trial will not start until spring sometime. I will be watching the docket site to make sure.
The children are still doing well last I heard. There are some struggles but well over all.
The only thing on the docket right now is a “Status Hearing” in August. My understanding is that she has these hearings are every couple of months while awaiting trial. They are hearings that are just basically making sure she is following the rules.
The newest status hearing can be found at…
When going to the site I use Case Number: 140331212 Date On or After: 7/24/2015 Date On or Before: 10/21/2015
It looks like Kate is currently having a status hearing. I sure wish this case would move forward. None of her trial dates are listed anymore. I have heard rumor that now it may not be until the fall when the trial starts. Hopefully something comes of this soon. If it is pushed off until the fall it will be 2 years since the authorities stepped in and a year and a half since arrest.
Case Number: 140331212 Date On or After: 4/29/2015 Date On or Before: 7/27/2015
EDITED TO ADD: As I was updating I refreshed and saw a hearing added. It is listed as a Hearing – Further Proceedings
So right after I posted my last post I thought I would check the court dates and low and behold they are listed. She is even in court as I type this. It list all her upcoming dates with a 12 person jury trial starting May 26th.
Here is the website to see the dates.
Here are the credentials I used.
County Multnomah Case Number: 140331212 Date On or After: 3/24/2015 Date On or Before: 6/21/201
We are coming up quickly on the 1 year anniversary of Kate’s arrest. And if what I have heard is correct we are looking at about 9 weeks until Kate’s trial begins.
This will be a long time coming. I am hoping the state has gotten all their ducks in a row and justice is finally done for these babies. I know these types of cases are hard to “prove.” I am just hoping if nothing else they will have enough on her that they can prove, that will keep her away for a very long time.
I’m hoping the media will cover the trial and there will be someone available that can share court information that can be shared here as the trial takes place.
Slowly but surely it will be here….
I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season.
Not much has happened as far as Kate is concerned. It has been so quiet. I have although heard that court should begin the end of May. So we have another 4 months before we may hear anything.
I’m hoping we will get updates as court happens and there will be people in the court room who will share the info they are hearing.
It sure is a long year coming. I just hope the justice system does what is right. I am also hoping since it has taken a year The state will have a solid case.
I honestly don’t know what else to title this post. I am in utter shock. I knew Kate was to be in court on Thursday October 2, with Judge Angel Lopez. That hearing was cancelled and Kate was in court Friday October 3, with Judge Eric Bloch. Over the weekend upon checking the site
I found that all charges said $0 bail except one that read $5,000. All charges also stated unscented.
Today I returned to the Inmate Status page and found all charges to say $0 and all status’ said released.
I then went looking and found this article via The Oregon Live
Long story short Friday Kate’s bail was reduced to $5,000 and she bonded out.
For whatever reason the court date that was set for today October 2, 2014 ended up not happening.
There is a new court date for tomorrow October 3, 2014. It is also listed as a “hearing” just like the last one. She is actually on tomorrows docket also. I’m not sure on some of the terms. It does look like it is not a closed case. The event type is listed as HGCU, I am not sure what that means. There is also a LL listed under VA also not sure what that means. Very few people have anything listed under VA.
Here are the links for the docket and the listing for a date and screenshots also.
