Berry appeared in the courtroom by video, hair cut short and sitting very still.
While a publication ban was in effect for today’s hearing, Berry’s criminal defence lawyer, Kevin McCullough, spoke outside the courthouse after the hearing.
“It’s not fair to argue a case in the media. I hope that the presumtion of innocence is here,” said McCullough. “It is so important for the protection of our democracy, that presumption of innocence be alive and well.”
Next court date is set for Feb.22 where preliminary trial dates are expected to be set.
