Lloyd also worked to confirm that Todd understood that if he pled guilty, he might serve only 17 years. If the case goes to trial, and he is found guilty, the sentencing judge could choose to send him to prison for a much longer time. Todd repeated that he rejected the offer and wants the case to proceed to trial.
The trial is tentatively scheduled to begin on Sept. 9. Given the time commitment the trial would require, according to Bull, Lloyd suggested asking Court Services to assign a judge to this case and see it through its entirety.
