WTOC has learned that Space's lawyer, Bobby Phillips, has filed a response to the petition that led to his client's criminal charges. The response says the courts are not giving Space enough time to prepare for his defense. It goes on to say that the charges against Space are unconstitutional. Phillips has also filed a motion for continuance in the trial.
"We are contending that they've tried to deny Space due process of law," said Phillips, "because we've had all these materials dropped off just yesterday and it just not enough time."
A pre-trail hearing for Space is scheduled for Friday.
