Because the presiding judge was unable to make it, the case of former Nevada County supervisor Terry Lamphier has been pushed back to Tuesday morning, April 5th, which is one week before a trial is scheduled. District Attorney Cliff Newell says the visiting judge did not feel he was adequately up to speed regarding motions that were supposed to be considered. Lamphier’s attorney wants the trial to be delayed further because he does not have the original hard drive of evidence found on Lamphier’s county computer, which is alleged to contain inappropriate images of children. Newell maintains a copy has already been provided and the original has also been available. Charges were filed nearly a year and a half ago.
