Posted

VIRGINIA— As of March 27, Judge Michelle Anderson will consider competing motions on probable cause from attorneys on both sides of the case against former Tower Clerk-Treasurer Linda Keith. The judge approved that schedule in a brief omnibus hearing in Courtroom One of the St. Louis County Courthouse here on Monday.
Keith, who appeared in the courtroom in a wheelchair, entered no plea on either of the pending cases againsther. She is currently facing a gross misdemeanor charge for falsifying official city records and a felony charge for the destruction of a city laptop computer. A third potential infraction is currently under investigation by law enforcement, the Timberjay has learned, but has not been charged to date.
Keith’s defense attorney, Andrew Poole, of Duluth, will have until March 13 to submit written briefs on Keith’s probable cause motion. Lawyers for St. Louis County will have until March 27 to respond. At that point, Judge Anderson will take the motion under advisement for an eventual ruling.
Once the judge rules on the motion, the parties will need to set a date for their next court hearing on the matter.
