On Nov. 20, DC Superior Court Judge Eric Glover granted a defendant’s request for new counsel.
Diamond Early, 31, is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence for her alleged involvement in a shooting that occurred on July 31, on the 4000 block of Kansas Avenue, NW. One person suffered from a non-fatal gunshot wound to the right leg.
During a preliminary hearing, Early’s defense attorney, Donna Beasley, asked for a continuance of the hearing due to Early’s request for a new counsel.
The judge granted Early’s request, and no reason was provided why Early wanted a new counsel.
Parties will reconvene Nov. 28 for an ascertainment of counsel and a preliminary hearing.Follow this case
