Escape trial rescheduled

New trial date in June

Late discovery postponed a trial that was under way in Juneau Superior Court Tuesday.

 

Judge Louis Menendez re-scheduled the felony escape trial for Justin J. Cameron, 24, for June after attorneys received a disc containing about 200 recordings of taped phone calls Cameron made from jail.

Cameron’s attorney Grace Lee asked the judge for more time to review the disc.

Cameron is charged with one count of second-degree escape, a felony. If convicted, he could be facing up to 10 years in jail and a $100,000 fine.

In mid-January, police said they received a report from the Juneau Adult Probation office that Cameron allegedly fled from the office when they told him he was being remanded.

Police alleged Cameron, who was on probation for a drug and weapons misconduct charge, had pushed and shoved his way past a probation officer and fled on foot.

Police said they gave chase and arrested Cameron in the Driftwood Hotel parking lot about an hour later.
