Shapiro, who is a former prosecutor himself with over forty years of law experience. If the case goes to trial, it will be heard in front of Judge Dena Martin, as well as a jury, which has been already demanded by the Defendant in the case. His first pre-trial conference is scheduled for the morning of November 9th, 2021.
