It seemed like déjà vu in Jones County Superior Court last week as a team of former prosecutors were once again being challenged on their attempt to represent criminal defendants.

Superior Court Judge James Cline presided over the hearing that ended without a decision, which is not the norm for the judge.

The case in question is a probation modification for Tarra Shekenia Wiggins, and after hearing the arguments of both sides, Cline said he wanted to reserve his ruling until Bushway had a ‘heart to heart’ conversation with his client about her situation.

“I think your concern is well founded,” the judge said.
