The trial of the only defendant to plead not guilty in the Operation Rockfish police corruption case has now been continued until February, documents in filed in the federal court system show.

The continuation came after motion hearings in Antonio Tillmon’s case were held before Senior Judge Malcolm Howard in Greenville, a minute entry for the proceedings Tuesday say.
No further documents on the hearings were contained in the electronic filing system as of this report and no explanation for the continuance was contained in the minute entry. A written entry is to follow.
Tillmon and his counsel were present along with the assistant United States attorney. “Court heard arguments from counsel and made various rulings. Court tentatively set jury trial to commence on Monday, February 6, 2017. Defendant remained on bond.”
The new round of motion hearings in the case came as previously filed documents showed new evidence had come to light in Tillmon’s case.
