Missed court date? Blame the weather!
A New Jersey man had been scheduled to appear in the Oconee General Sessions Court this week to answer to a criminal charge, but he wound up with an excuse acceptable to the court. The man was supposed to have caught a flight south at 4 yesterday morning. Trouble was, that flight and most others in the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions were canceled by this latest version of polar vortex. As a result, defense attorney Gruber Sires says, the court will re-schedule the case—possibly for next week.
