San Bernardino County judge denies two more motions in Justice 8 case


(UPDATE: April 24, 2024): The trial start date for the seven defendants dubbed the Justice 8 has been postponed.

A San Bernardino County judge has denied two more motions in the case of seven defendants facing felony charges for violent acts at protests last year.

Most of the street vendor activists dubbed the Justice 8 have been in custody since December 14.

On Friday, Judge John Wilkerson denied a defense motion requesting all evidence of conversations between the Fontana Mayor’s office, the district Attorney’s office and the Sheriff's Department.

Deputy District Attorney Jason Wilkinson said in court there’s no record of any such conversations taking place.

Afterwards, Damon Alimouri, who represents defendant Vanessa Carrasco, said that’s information the prosecutors could have shared earlier.

The judge also denied another motion asking for a change of venue for the trial.
