Update: New Information Into Why Judge Recused Himself In Michael Porter Case
Court documents show Judge James Ishamel was asked to be taken off the case because the defense was worried there would be "difficulties."
According to court documents, Judge Ishmael was given a letter of support for Porter from a personal acquaintance.
Judge Ernesto Scorsone was assigned to the case later that day.
There’s no word yet on when Porter will be sentenced.
