Lexington County, SC (WIS) –

Attorney Robert Rikard says the defense claim that Isaac should be immune from prosecution despite committing several crimes might be absurd, but it did buy some time for Isaac’s attorney.

“What you don’t want is ‘justice delayed is justice is denied,’” said Rikard. “If you’re using this as a delay tactic, which it appears it was, then the whole justice system comes to a screeching halt. You’ve got a jury waiting to hear a trial, you’ve got people there, you’ve got witnesses. It disrupts lives. It’s not fair to all parties involved.
