The escape charges that were reinstated by a three-judge panel are being appealed by the defense to the entire Pennsylvania Superior Court. Hugo Selenski's defense team cited four reasons for the appeal. The most important one is The district attorney’s office, by its own admission, did not file its policies and procedures for joining the cases. This part of the case will drag on for a while.
The trial on the murder charges may also be delayed because of defense motions which is probably fine by DA David Lupas. Just get past the primary for Judge. And Paul Weakly's attorneys want a separate trial. The media coverage of the latest hearing focused on Hugo's supposed "outburst" in the courtroom. Dr. Tara calls bullshit on the coverage.
“Set a trial date already,” Selenski said. “I’m sick of this."
