The trial for Tracy Dirk Wade was officially issued a continuance late Friday afternoon, Oct. 4. Wade's trial was initially scheduled for Monday morning, Oct. 7, but due to a scheduling conflict, it is still unclear when the trial will happen.
“I don't know when we will get a new setting. The judge for the Wade case granted a continuance because there was double scheduling,” explained District Attorney Dee Peavy. “The defense attorney was also scheduled to go to trial in Eastland County. We have several cases set and then you see which one you end up with. They picked their jury on Friday and we were scheduled to pick ours on Monday.”
Peavy added the case in Eastland County was a trial for the continuous sexual abuse of a child. Peavy explained that this sort of continuance is not uncommon, especially in a two county district.
