Alleged DVR ‘compromise’ postpones trial of liquor store clerkWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The trial of a liquor store clerk accused of selling liquor to a minor was postponed after his defense team told the judge an expert felt DVR surveillance video from the liquor store had been “compromised” in the days after the alleged transaction and asked for more time to investigate.
Nicholas Thompson, who appeared in court Feb. 18, has been charged with selling alcohol to an underage friend of 18-year-old Brian Hoeflinger on Feb. 1, 2013, at Foxx Liquor Store on Dorr Street. Hoeflinger was killed in an alcohol-related crash later that night.
The new trial date is set for 9 a.m. March 25.
