The state Supreme Court is taking another 30 days to consider hearing the appeal of sex offender Greg Haidl and his accomplices to have their convictions for sexually assaulting an unconscious teenage girl overturned.
The most likely explanation for the additional time is so the court isn't working up against the Fourth of July holiday weekend, said Haidl's attorney, Dennis Fischer. He said the court's move to postpone a decision on whether to hear the case didn't indicate anything about his client's chances of being heard.
Fischer petitioned the state Supreme Court in May to hear arguments on why Haidl's conviction for sexually assaulting a teenage girl in his father's garage in 2002 should be overturned. Fischer petitioned for his client, and attorneys for accomplices Keith Spann and Kyle Nachreiner's attorneys joined the petition later.
