Defendant Refuses to Attend Hearing

A defendant refused to attend his hearing on May 8.

William Johnson is charged with distribution of a controlled substance heroin, distribution of a controlled substance offense committed during release, possession of a controlled substance heroin and violating the bail reform act.

Johnson refused to come to the phone to attend the hearing so his attorney Donna Beasley asked for a continuance, which Judge Neal Kravitz granted.

The hearing will now be held on May 14.
