Mayoral Candidate Donald Shepherd, Charged With Grand Theft Auto, Waives Right to Speedy Trial

By

In a case management hearing Monday afternoon, the attorney for Donald Eugene Shepherd, city of Gainesville mayoral candidate, appeared at a hearing before Circuit Judge Mark Moseley to discuss the candidate’s grand theft auto charge.

Shepherd has rescheduled a meeting for Friday to go over the state’s plea offer.

John Lyon Broling, Shepherd’s public defender, waived a speedy trial on his behalf and will schedule depositions, though he said he does not believe the case will require any depositions.

Shepherd’s next court hearing will be held April 11.
