At 2:26 in this short clip posted by practicing criminal attorney Scott Reisch, who is also based in Colorado, there is added support for the idea that a plea deal is on the cards. Transcript provided below.
REISCH: …and I can tell you as a practicing attorney, when we add a case on like this, oftentimes it is set for…a…change of plea. Somebody wants to enter a plea. Is this what this is set for? I have no idea. But usually, if you add a case on early, um, if there is gonna be a plea, you wanna do it – strike while everything is hot, so to speak. And your client, and the defendant, wants to plead guilty ultimately. So it will be curious to see if maybe the DAs have told…uh…Mr. Watts and his counsel…uh, you know this is the offer. And maybe he accepted it. Or it can be as simple as [rescheduling].
It all happens tomorrow!
