Ruling on motions delayed in George case

More time needed to finish watching recorded interviews

DIXON – A judge’s ruling was delayed Wednesday for several motions relating to the upcoming trial of a Dixon man accused of causing his daughter’s death.

On Tuesday morning, Judge Ronald Jacobson heard arguments from Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller and Public Defender Bob Thompson, who is representing Charles T. George, about whether trial evidence may include prior domestic battery convictions and video interviews with children.

Jacobson was expected to announce his decision on the motions at 1 p.m. Wednesday, but he delayed that until 11 a.m. today, he said, because he hadn’t had time to finish watching both recorded interviews.

George, 36, is charged with four counts of aggravated battery of a child, and one count of aggravated domestic battery of a child, stemming from the September 2010 death of his daughter, 3-month-old Tamari George.
