Kendall ready for trial, re-retains lawyer

By From page B1 | April 24, 2013

The woman who allegedly stole her own son and fled to Seattle is ready to stand trial with her newly re-retained lawyer.

Kristy Kellogg, standing in for defense attorney Tom Johnson, told El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Daniel B. Proud that Jennifer Kendall would be re-retaining Johnson as her attorney of record and that they were ready for trial.

A May 21 trial, estimated to take five days, was confirmed. The Public Defender’s Office, who had represented Kendall after she was unable to retain Johnson earlier in pre-trial proceedings, was relieved of representation.

A readiness and settlement hearing was set for May 17 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 2.
