AMENDED: It appears a 4 p.m. hearing in St. Francois County Circuit Court will involve setting a trial date for Rep. Brad Robinson, D-Bonne Terre.
Robinson, 42, was allegedly driving his pickup on Jan. 1 when he struck a man, severely injuring him. Surveillance video purportedly shows Robinson and his wife changing places to make it appear that Robinson's wife Tara was driving, and then leaving the scene. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, five passengers in the pickup have been granted immunity in exchange for their testimony against the Robinsons.
Court records indicate Tara Robinson's trial will be held Sept. 4, a postponement from the original July 18. Mrs. Robinson is charged with a misdemeanor, making a false declaration.
Bradley Robinson is not seeking re-election.
