The seven remaining defendants in the 75 River Street case will have a preliminary hearing before Judge Burdick on August 20th.
A police cruiser was parked in the street as two officers stood over a young man seated on the curb with his hands cuffed behind his back.
Judge Burdick, who previously expressed that he would rather not have to preside over this case anymore, stated, "Once again, we are stuck with each other Ms. Young."
