The alleged chief of a $10 million drug-trafficking ring accused of bringing heroin and cocaine into blair and cambria counties in 2016 and 2017 stated thursday that he wants to represent himself at an upcoming jury trial. Damon “fat cat” devine, who up to now has had three defense lawyers, stated he begged those attorneys over the months to undertaking wrong statistics inside the grand jury complaints leading to a july 2017 presentment and the drug-trafficking accusations against him. However months have surpassed, devine said, and nothing has took place. “i want to be my personal attorney,” devine advised blair county decide daniel j. Milliron after taking a brief pause. Milliron, who has been trying this year to transport devine’s case to trial, launched devine’s third legal professional on thursday. Chris wencker of huntingdon, appointed to devine’s case in past due might also, said he noticed in his preliminary overview of devine’s case that anthony freiwald of johnstown is a co-defendant. Because wencker already represents freiwald, wencker said he cannot constitute devine, too.
