Cameron Harrison’s rape trial could face another delay as the prosecutor assigned to the case is forced to withdraw.
Wednesday afternoon Assistant District Attorney ChaLea Tisdale filed a Motion to Withdraw stating that she “will no longer be employed with the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office, effective December 2, 2016”.
The motion comes days after incoming District Attorney Robert Wilters announced that close to 60 percent of the current staff would be let go when he assumed office.
Cameron Harrison’s trial was scheduled to begin in October but was granted a continuance. Tisdale argued against the delay and stated then that she could be gone and it would fall to another prosecutor to handle the case. It is unclear what, if any, delay this development may cause.
Harrison new trial date was set for March 2017.
