Lois Riess: Case Procedural Update

Due to the volume of requests for updates on the case involving defendant Lois Riess, case #18-000163CF, we are providing these details on the procedural aspects of the case.

Today the defendant had her finger, palm, and foot prints rolled in court following the court granting the State’s Motion to Require the Accused to Submit to Finger Printing, Palm Printing, and Foot Printing last week.

At the hearing the defense requested that the prints be rolled in the secure holding area adjacent to the courtroom and the Honorable Judge Joseph Fuller granted the request based upon stipulation with the State. The prints were done in the presence of the attorneys, court reporter, and the judge.

Her next court date is scheduled on October 31st for a case management conference. Assistant State Attorney Lanna Belohlavek of our Homicide Unit and Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Royal are prosecuting the case.
