Mike Roman Wins Motion for 3-month Delay in Georgia Case

Fulton County DA Fani Willis has just taken another shot across the bow.

Willis is in the headlines for an alleged inappropriate relationship with one of her prosecutors.

Now she is also dealing with a judgment to allow George State Senator Shawn Still a 3-month delay on his deadline for motions.

Back It Up

The key to Willis being able to prosecute this RICO case is to keep as many defendants who have not taken a plea deal together.

She is trying to show a conspiracy, but when these cases start to drift apart, it hurts her case.

Because Still is part of the General Assembly, he is entitled to the delay, so this was an easy motion for him to win.

The filing stated, “As a current member of the General Assembly, the Defendant is automatically entitled to a continuance and stay from ‘all aspects of the case.’

“All other provisions, including initial reciprocal discovery obligations, remain in place. Additional extensions will only be considered upon the filing of a particularized motion containing a detailed, fact-based explanation of the need for the extension, including the amount of time needed.”

Still now has until the end of April to file any other motions.

In addition to this, Willis is also dealing with a subpoena in the divorce proceedings of special prosecutor Nathan Wade over an alleged affair.

Michael Roman, another co-defendant in the case, brought the spotlight to the alleged affair in a filing his attorney made calling the charges against him unconstitutional.

While it is unlikely the charges will be dropped, Willis will now have to be flawless when she presents her case.

Trump has also jumped on this bandwagon, calling Willis “compromised."

Trump stated, “You had a very big event yesterday as you saw in Georgia where the district attorney is totally compromised. The case has to be dropped. They went after 18 or 20 people. … She was out of her mind. Now it turns out that case is totally compromised.”
