Thomas Lafoe, accused of first degree murder in the case of Jeff Norton, is scheduled for yet another hearing on September 21, 2011 at 8:30 in the morning. According to the Judge, he will either accept a plea deal with the State or a trial date will be set. Lafoe’s attorney has been busy looking for witnesses to bolster his client’s position.
The hearing is scheduled at 8:30 am sharp and Judge Ley is not inclined to dawdle. Given the traffic in the St Pete area traffic, give yourself plenty of time if you plan to attend. This will be our last chance to find out what really happened if there is no trial. I’m hoping we can get some closure from the proceedings but no doubt it’s going to be a difficult day for Jeff’s friends and family.
