Thurman quickly shot back "that's ridiculous" at least twice and told the judge Herbison "needs to be held in contempt."
At the end of the hearing, it lead to a warning from the judge directed at Herbison that he could face contempt of court charges.The continuance comes after both Vandenburg's and Batey's attorney asked that the start of the trial be delayed.
Thurman went down the line on each charge by the defense, saying the prosecution had acted within the rules of the court.
"We were ready to go to trial in 10 days," said Thurman afterwards. "And we'll be ready in November."Vandenburg did not appear in court Friday, but was listening on the phone with his attorney.
