Johnson’s trial still yet to be determined

La Verne City Councilman Steven Johnson’s conflict of interest case was tabled again Monday morning.

Johnson’s attorney has had the pre-trial hearing continued more times than D.A. Jonlyn Callahan likes to talk about. The reason being that an expert compiling a report for Johnson needs additional time.

Last time, the expert needed 45 days and got it. This time the “elusive” expert, as Callahan described them, asked for 30 days. The judge granted it, but with the warning that at the next hearing a trial date would be set.

Johnson’s attorney and Callahan will meet again Feb. 17.
