Hubbard's Court Date Pushed To November (2018-10-04 15:14:08)

Jesse R. Hubbard’s first day in Ashe County District Court, set for September 27th, was pushed back for a second time.

The original first court appearance was supposed to be September 6th.

Hubbard is charged with the August 19th murder of Diane Goss from West Jefferson, and with four counts of possession of firearm by a felon.

The Ashe Post and Times reports the case has now been continued to November 15th.

According to the report, Hubbard’s attorney, Jak Reeves, said the state is still conducting its investigation of the murder, and a trial won’t start until the investigation is complete.

Hubbard may be indicted by a Grand Jury on November 13th, two days before his new scheduled district court date on November 15th.
