Christopher Thompson Sentencing Postponed Because of Potential Swine Flu Outbreak

For anyone looking for news on the sentencing of the "Mandeville Canyon Road Rage Doctor," you’re going to have to wait until the new year.  DJ Wheels, who has done the yeoman’s work covering the trial for this blog and others, reports that the sentencing was postponed until January 8 at the request of the defense and over the objections of the prosecution. 

Apparently, there was a lockdown of the North County Correctional Facility, where Thompson is being held, denying the Doctor a chance to meet with his defense.   According to court papers, the lockdown occurred because of a potential outbreak of the H1N1 virus.

I guess it’s a good thing a doctor was in the house.
