By the time the hearings had ended neither ASA Nichols, nor Attorney Jerome Stone could provide one single piece of paperwork or evidence pertaining to the Aggravated Battery.
It was also revealed that Judge Larry Shack, who originally sentenced William in 2006, had not inquired into William’s mental state, whether he was on drugs or mediations at the time of the plea. These questions are required by law, and are set forth on a pre-printed form to ensure that a plea is knowingly and voluntarily entered.
