Rudolf Bradford has received yet another postponement of his sentencing on six guilty charges. He was found guilty of running an illegal slaughterhouse on Dec. 14, 2022. His sentencing has been delayed three times. Assistant Solicitor-General Karen Scott sent the following note:
Over the State’s objection, the court has reset the State v. Rudolph Bradford to Monday, April 3rd, 2023, at 8:50 am at the DeKalb County Courthouse located at 556 N. McDonough Street, Decatur, Georgia 30030, Courtroom B on the 3rd floor.
On Friday, March 17, 2023 the defense attorney reached out to the Court via e-mail to request a continuance based on a personal emergency. The Court did not set a hearing on the matter, but Judge Purdom addressed that he had received the request during an unrelated court session this morning.
The State expressed its objection, including mentioning the planned attendance of members of the public, information that the Defendant continues to operate his business, and that this matter has already been reset twice. Over the State’s objection, the Judge indicated that given the circumstances of the Defendant’s request, he was still going to reset it. As always, I will continue to keep you updated on this matter.
