Katherine Kealoha: Sentencing must be finalized before finding out if new trial is granted
Katherine Kealoha will have to wait until after sentencing to learn whether or not she will be granted a new trial, according to our partners at Civil Beat.
Kealoha was convicted in June for conspiracy and obstruction.
Last month, she filed a motion for a new trial claiming her court-appointed lawyer was ineffective. Kealoha's new lawyer, Earle Partington, argued that a decision should be made now because it could negatively impact two other trials she is facing.
A judge ruled to wait until after her conspiracy case is finalized with sentencing in October.
