Price pleaded “guilty” on Sept. 30, 2021, to obstruction of justice, accessory after the fact, aggravated flight from an officer, and illegal carrying of a weapon with drugs. A separate charge of obstruction of justice was dismissed by the State at that hearing. On that same day, Judge Beard also granted the ROR of Price’s bond, allowing him to be released while awaiting his sentencing.
Price will now be sentenced on Jan. 12, 2023. He was initially set to be sentenced Monday, but the court granted a defense motion for a continuance, which was submitted without objection by the State.
Price is represented by Phillip Robinson, with Assistant District Attorney Lea Hall for the prosecution.
