A new attorney is on the case and new trial date has been set for a man accused of stealing a vehicle and crashing it into the brewery to get some beer.
A jury trial was scheduled to start Monday for Michael Rae. He’s the 54 year old Juneau man who was arrested after a vehicle was crashed into the Alaskan Brewing Company storefront on Shaune Drive last May.
“Want to dismiss today?” Rae loudly asked District Attorney Dave Brower from the other side of the courtroom during a hearing Thursday. He repeated the question when he received no answer.
Rae’s jury trial has been rescheduled for December 12th as his new lawyer comes up to speed on the case. The judge also is expected to consider the latest set of motions to suppress evidence and dismiss the indictment.
