TSR Exclusive: More delays are expected in Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder’s trial, which was already delayed more than a year because of the pandemic.
The Shade Room was in court this morning when it was revealed that Holder’s previous attorney, Lowynn Young, moved on to the judge’s bench. Holder has since been appointed a new defense attorney, Aaron Jansen, who made his first appearance in court today.
Holder refused to leave his cell this morning, prompting the judge in his case to further push back his pre-trial hearing. Honorable Clay Jacke, who is also new to the case after the previous judge retired, confirmed with Jansen that he hasn’t even had the chance to talk to his client.
A new judge coupled with a new defense attorney can only mean that it will take a few months for them to get caught up on the case, officials tell us. Ultimately, Holder’s new defense attorney predicted that his client will be ready before the end of the year is up.
It’s not really clear why Holder refused to be transported from jail to court this morning, but our suspicions are that because he hasn’t even met his new lawyer, he probably wants to speak to him first before making an appearance.
Judge Jacke, however, says if Holder isn’t ready to show up by Friday, they will likely have him forcibly removed from his cell to attend his hearing.
It’s been two years since Nipsey Hussle was taken from this world. The rap legend and community giant was fatally shot on March 31, 2019.
Eric Holder is accused of killing Nipsey and wounding two others in the shooting, which took place outside of Nipsey’s Marathon Clothing store.
