Trial Date Pushed For Accused Highland Hall Intruder
Tanner Boyd appeared in Whatcom County Superior Court on Monday, June 26, for his scheduled jury trial. The prosecution and the defense agreed to push his trial to August 14.
Boyd is facing charges of third degree theft and residential burglary. He was arrested in connection to break-ins that occurred in Highland Hall on November 12, 2016. Boyd pleaded guilty to a similar set of charges from November 2014, accepting a plea deal just three days before the Highland Hall arrest.
Adrian Martinez Madrone, Boyd’s stand-in attorney, said the defense does not expect the case to make it to trial.
Boyd graduated from Western in 2015 and remained a volunteer for the track and field team until his arrest last fall.
The next pretrial hearing is July 27.
