Two trials make for an especially busy week or two
Two trials to begin in Walhalla will make for an especially busy Monday at the Oconee Courthouse—and you can expect parking spaces to be at a premium for much of the day. Monday will see the start of one week of General Sessions Court and the start of what may be two weeks of Common Pleas Court. One jury is to report in the morning, the other in the afternoon. A 33-year old Oconeean, charged with domestic violence high and aggravated, is scheduled for the first General Sessions trial. Judge Larry Hyman Jr. of Conway presides. In another courtroom, a 2009 civil lawsuit titled Stoneledge at Lake Keowee Owners Association against IMK Development Company is set for a trial that involves so many parties and attorneys that it may require two weeks. Judge Alex Macaulay of West Union presides over that trial.
