“Six weeks before the charges must be dropped, unless there is a change. It is hard for me to comprehend how we got here. Turner sent a tweet on Oct. 20 to an account called “Justice for Sarah Jacob” asking for prayers.
Turner stated to WTOP that he believes Hoggle exaggerates the state of Hoggle’s mental health. He also said that it would be “reprehensible,” if Hoggle was cleared of all charges after eight years.
