Yisrayl Hawkins' trial postponed

Abilene Reporter/September 15, 2008

Jury selection for the trial of House of Yahweh leader Yisrayl Hawkins has been pushed back.

According to 42nd District clerks, the trial was "not ready" for the originally set date.

Hawkins, 73, is charged with bigamy in Callahan County and was seeking a venue change for his pending trial. Judge John Weeks decided Aug. 20 to carry forward the hearing to jury selection.

No new date was set for the pending jury selection and trial, but district clerks said the selection could take place as late as November.
