Prosecutors challenge Shabazz's motion to remove district attorney from case

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Chatham County Commissioner Yusuf Shabazz filed a motion to have local prosecutors removed from his case because, according to him, it deprives his right to a fair trial.

On Tuesday, prosecutors challenged his attempt, saying it’s untimely and unsupported by facts.

If you remember back in December, Shabazz pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from an incident in June. He is accused of clipping a City of Savannah road worker with the side mirror of his vehicle and then leaving the scene.

A jury trial date is set for Feb. 1st.
