On Tuesday, February 5, James Bynum returned to a Scott County Courtroom for a pre-trial hearing.

Bynum’s attorney, Ernie Witt, made a motion to withdraw as counsel. In that motion Witt stated that “his client has failed to abide by the attorney/client agreement in keeping up with financial obligations.” Also that “…no funds have been paid to said attorney.”

Judge Jerry Don Ramey granted that motion, and appointed Bynum a public defender to represent him in further proceedings. Bynum remains incarcerated at the Scott County Jail, and has been declared by the court as indigent.

Bynum’s jury trial is set to take place on February 19, 2019 at 9:30 a.m.
