MUSCODA - Franklin Hurley was seen in court last week on January 28 for a preliminary hearing and arraignment. Hurley is facing 42 separate charges, including eight felonies, including bail jumping, carrying a concealed weapon, theft, and burglary, for alleged incidents that lead to his arrest in Muscoda.
Hurley appeared by video in the Grant County Court House from custody while his attorney David L. Christian appeared in court on his behalf. The court officials reviewed Hurley’s waiver and found that he “freely and knowingly waives right to preliminary hearing.” With this the court bound Hurley over for trial, and court notes read that he stood mute and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
A status conference is scheduled for Hurley on March 30 at 11 a.m. with a Jury Trial set to begin at 9 a.m. on April 12.In the meantime, Hurley remains in custody on a $10,000 cash bond with orders not to have contact with several residences in Muscoda.
