CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A judge in Charlottesville Circuit Court took up matters Wednesday involving two men tied to a violent attack inside the Market Street Parking Garage last summer.
Judge Richard Moore heard from an attorney representing Tyler Watkins Davis Wednesday, September 5. Davis is accused of taking part in the beating of DeAndre Harris.
Moore said he will consider removing Davis’ home electronic-monitoring ankle bracelet in Florida if he is under supervision of pretrial court program.
Davis' three-day jury trial was expected to get underway on September 17. However, he is now scheduled for an arraignment in Circuit Court on October 4.
Jacob Scott Goodwin, who was convicted on the charge of malicious wounding for his part in the Harris beating, also went before Judge Moore Wednesday. He is currently serving eight years.
Elmer Woodard was Goodwin’s counsel during trial, but he is no longer representing the Arkansas man.
Wednesday, Moore advised Goodwin that he was appointed an attorney for his appeal.
Former Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Anthony Martin is now representing Goodwin. They were slated to meet after the day’s hearing at the courthouse for the first time.
