The trial of a former police officer accused of firing on his former colleagues has been moved until the latter half of next January.
Troy Wilson was scheduled to stand trial on December 3rd. But his attorney Julie Willoughby said in Juneau Superior Court on Thursday that she just received another 150-pages of documents as part of the discovery process.
“I am drafting some fairly extensive motion practice,” said Willoughby. “It’s possible that a January date is really just a placeholder.”
Wilson agreed to waive the speedy trial rule, and there was no objection from District Attorney Dave Brower.
Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg set a nine-day trial to start on January 22nd .
“I think it goes without saying that — if only because of the number of counts, the number of people involved, the potential seriousness of this case — this is a complex case,” said Pallenberg.
The former Juneau Police Department lieutenant was arrested last April after an alleged stand-off with officers at his home on Black Wolf Way. He allegedly fired 75-rounds at his former colleagues. No one was reported hurt.
Wilson faces six counts of attempted murder, six counts of weapons misconduct, six counts of assault, two counts of criminal mischief, and two counts of misdemeanor weapons misconduct.
Wilson remains held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center pending posting of a million dollars bail.
