FREEHOLD, N.J. - March 18, 2022 - PRLog -- After four months from the first report about the criminal case of State of New Jersey vs. Franklin Horton– a first-degree sexual assault prosecution with six additional second and third-degree counts- there has been no jury trial, no evidentiary hearing; and no bail hearing despite Defendant Horton filing a pro se motion for bail pending trial back in December. And after this extraordinary criminal case passing through five judicial chambers (5 judges), five prosecutors, and nine defense attorneys in less than four years, a 70-year-old Black man remains a prisoner at Monmouth Country Corrections Institution on charges that the prosecutor conceded in a hearing three months ago to have no D.N.A. or evidence to support.

During last week's court hearing, Horton filed a pretrial affidavit with support exhibits, making unequivocal statements that preserve his claim to innocence and the likelihood of a structural error or void process amid the charging process before him being indicted by a grand jury months after his arrest.
