Trial Set For Missouri Attorney
An October trial date is set for a central Missouri prosecutor accused of backing a truck into a restaurant, injuring four people.
According to the Associated Press, Moniteau County prosecuting attorney Shayne Healea will stand trial beginning October 27th in Shelby County. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports his case was moved from Boone County on a change of venue request.
Healea's charged with second-degree assault and felony resisting arrest stemming from an incident in fall 2014. Columbia police allege he backed his pickup truck into a restaurant's window in Columbia. Four people suffered minor injuries. Police also say he drove off and refused a breath-alcohol test when he was found.
The AP reports Healea has said he was unaware he hit the restaurant and returned to the scene when he found out about the accident.
