Decision Expected Wednesday In Callie Long Case

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

Twenty-four hours from now we will know if Lubbockite Callie Long will get a new trial or not.

State District Judge Jim Darnell must make a decision by Wednesday. If Long's attorney does not contact the judge with new information, the judge will let the time run out, which in turn overrules the motion for a new trial.

In April, a Lubbock Jury found Long guilty of intoxicated manslaughter in the death of Brett Walrath and sentenced her to two years in prison. Long's attorney argued she did not receive a fair trial.
