Perennial candidate Martin Lindstedt's next hearing apparently will be a case review Oct. 27 before Judge Kevin Selby, according to a notation on the case.net website.
That would indicate that Lindstedt might undergo a mental evaluation sometime between now and then. He had originally been scheduled to have a preliminary hearing July 21.
Lindstedt, who has run for every office from East Newton R-6 Board of Education to U. S. senator, is charged with felony statutory sodomy. He has already had numerous run-ins with judges handling the case and has steadfastly refused to hire a lawyer or to have one appointed for him.
His courtroom disruptions caused him to receive 660 days in jail for contempt of court (30 days for each of 22 disruptions during one hearing).
More information about Lindstedt can be found in earlier Turner Report posts.
