Favre court date postponed (Updated 12:15 p.m.)

Preliminary hearings for Brandi Favre and four others on drug-related charges scheduled for this morning has been postponed until May 10.

Also charged are Marty Grimes, David Michael Logan and Alesha Kirkland. Their preliminary hearings are scheduled for March 22.

Favre was not expected to appear in Hancock County Justice Court this morning.

"I wouldn't call her to the witness stand anyway," said her attorney, Richard Dymond. "There's no reason for her to be here."

Dymond asked for the May court date because he had a conflict on the March 22 date. The court granted the new date for Favre.

Chad Favre, Favre's second attorney, said her legal team plans to enter a plea of not guilty and get a preliminary hearing scheduled in a month or two.

"I think the facts will show out that Brandi did not have anything to do with this lab," he said. will have more news as it become available.
