Denial of Josh’s Bond Request

Today Judge Miriam Cavanaugh denied Josh’s request for bond during his appeal. She stated that the defense cannot prove there are appealable issues without access to the criminal trial transcripts. The defense was not able to review the transcripts because they have not been produced. It is the responsibility of the court to provide these documents. They were due on June 23rd, however, the court requested an extension. As a result of today’s ruling, Josh returned to jail to continue serving his unjust sentence.

Please keep the Burns in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with yet another denial of justice in their case. Tonight, WXYZ Channel 7 will air a spot on the result of today’s hearing.
