Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer refused to come to court

Eric Holder, the man accused of killing Nipsey Hussle had a pre-trial court hearing Wednesday morning and guess who did not show up to court? We learned that Holder refused to leave his cell yesterday morning for unknown reasons. His court date was rescheduled for this Friday.

I know I been telling everyone since late 2020 that this trial would absolutely occur by mid 2021, but new developments in this case now has me thinking that the trial start date might drag into the beginning of next year.

The first new development in this case is that Judge Robert Perry, 77, has retired from the bench. Judge Perry had a retirement date of March 5, 2021 after sitting on the bench since 1992. He has been replaced by Judge H. Clay Jackie II. Although Judge Perry has been presiding over this case for two years it is not going to derail the timeline of this case as much as the next new development.

Lowynn Young, who has been defending Holder for two years, was recently promoted to the bench. The former public defender is now a judge in the Compton Courthouse. In late March, Governor Gavin Newsom appointed 18 new judges statewide and four in Los Angeles County and Lowyn Young was selected.

Before all you conspiracy theorists start speculating on this move, all these new judges that were appointed by the Governor had to apply for these positions months in advance. A judgeship is not something that just lands on your desk. You have to complete an extensive Judicial Appointment Application and then you wait. Young submitted her paper work to even be considered for a judicial appointment months in advance. According to the Governor’s website:

“The process of reviewing your application and supplemental documents is a lengthy one. Each application is given thorough and careful consideration. We ask for your patience while we consider the unique skills, experiences, and qualifications of each applicant, and the needs of the court.”

Holder getting assigned a new attorney will be a huge set back for the timeline of the trial. This trial will NOT be starting by June or July as I have previously anticipated. Aaron Jansen, the new public defender has to have time to review all the discovery in this case and he is going to need several weeks, possibly months to get prepared for trial. In the last two years hundreds of pages of discovery have accumulated that will take this new attorney at least four to six months to review. Don’t be surprised if this case continues to the beginning of 2022.
