Trial date set for Don Buie

Albany - A judge set December 14th as the day Don Buie's theft trial will begin.

That could change, though, depending on how that same judge rules on Buie's change of venue request.

Judge Denise Marshall heard a motion by Buie's lawyer this morning to move the trial because of pre-trial publicity.

Judge Marshall refused to allow WALB News 10 cameras insice the courtroom for the hearing.

Buie's lawyer argued that publicity surrounding Buie's indictment and arrest would make it difficult for him to get a fair trial here.

Judge Marshall says she will rule on the request by Monday.

If the trial remains in Dougherty County, it will begin in 19 days.
