Forman is currently in custody and appeared via videolink. He was wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and mostly looked down.
Jacob Forman’s new lawyer Raymond Dieno took over two weeks ago. Forman is expected to be back in court via video link on Sept. 24 for a pre-trial conference. If it goes to trial, that’s likely when the date would be set #bccourt #ylw
