Reilly To Face Trial For Charges Of Misleading Police
The woman accused of lying to police about Joanne Ringer's disappearance last year is set to go on trial in November after a judge denied her request for a modified plea agreement that would have split up her charges.
The Berkshire Eagle reports during a change of plea hearing yesterday, an attorney filed a motion to allow Laura Reilly to plead guilty to one of the three counts against her and schedule a bench trial on the remaining counts.
The motion was denied by Berkshire Superior Court Judge John Agostini and a final pretrial conference in the case has now been set for Oct. 22nd.
The 43-year-old Reilly, of Easthampton is accused of lying to police about particular pieces of information in their investigation into Ringer's demise.
