66-year-old Robert Lee Chaffee went through a second bail hearing today, being charged with a felony offense from 2016.
He was previously convicted by a partial jury.
Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies said he drove over a Phoenix man, causing the victim to suffer from severe injuries to his face, legs and ribs.
Today, the defense requested a lower bail, however, no changes took place during this second hearing.
Chaffee’s bail remains at $250,000.
His re-trial begins October 1st.
The Supreme Court’s ruling will affect defendants whose appeals are still working their way through the courts.
For others, whose cases were resolved earlier, a new round of lawsuits would be required to determine if the decision would invalidate their convictions.
