In mid March 2021, Letecia Stauch, accused murderer of eleven year old Gannon Stauch, demanded her court appointed counsel be removed from representing her criminal case. Letecia requested to represent herself and her motion was granted. Now, Stauch refuses to use the jail’s Law Library.
Recent court filings reflect that on March 5, 2021, Stauch completed and was approved for a request to utilize the jail law library. On March 30, 2021, Letecia refused to go to the law library during her scheduled time. The defendant again refuses to utilize the requested time at the library on April 2, 2021.
On April 8, 2021, Letecia Stauch was removed from the jail’s law library schedule. The defendant is now banned from any law library use for 90 days for her failure to comply with jail officials.
While we can’t be sure what Letecia’s motive is for this refusal, surely Stauch’s decision cannot be a good move; especially for a defendant planning to represent herself at trial.
Recent court filings are posted below.
