Today at a Glance:
Drug Court convenes before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins at 10 a.m. in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse, Kim C. Hammond Justice Center 1769 E Moody Blvd, Bldg 1, Bunnell. Drug Court is open to the public. See the Drug Court handbook here and the participation agreement here.
In Court: Chad Cordoma, the 21-year-old Palm Coast resident who pleaded in June to making written threats to kill his brother, is sentenced in an open plea–meaning that it’s up to Circuit Judge Terence Perkins to decide the penalty–at 4 p.m. in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse. The case is unusual, in that the victim in the case and Cordoma’s parents are pleading with the court not to punish Cordoma, who suffers from mental illness. Cordoma is represented by Josh Davis.
