Out Of Abundance of Caution, Goldilocks Trial Delayed
LOWELL, MI – LowellArts, representing the LowellArts Youth Theater, today released the following statement after the Honorable Victor Preiss, Deputy Chief Judge of Fairytale Courts, announced that — out of an abundance of caution — the trial against Goldilocks, originally scheduled for March 20 & 21, will be delayed due to the ongoing risk posed by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19):
"LowellArt’s Goldilocks trial will have the eyes of all Fairytale Lands on it and we very much expect characters from far and wide to be in attendance. Out of an abundance of caution, we fully accept and agree with the court’s decision to delay a trial against Goldilocks until the ongoing risk of coronavirus subsides. While our first duty must be to ensure the safety of every individual in attendance at trial, as the court stated today, this trial will not be delayed a single minute longer than necessary.
Once the threat of COVID-19 dies down, it will be finally determined who is guilty or innocent. Was the young girl a selfish, spoiled brat, intruding where she didn't belong? Or, was she the victim of three conniving bears (and their animal "band of hoods" in the woods)? This familiar fairy tale will be presented in open court and will be examined from three points of view: the traditional, the Bears', then Goldilocks’, and laid out for the jury to decide."
Judge Teresa Goldner — who will oversee the trial — made an additional statement about the case:
“We all grew up knowing one version of the story. But as we have all learned, there is more than one side to every story. Goldilocks is facing charges of breaking and entering and is pleading her case to a jury of her peers. The defense and prosecuting attorneys have selected a jury and the trial was about to begin. We are committed to holding all parties responsible for their role in these events, and will continue fighting for a "happily-ever-after" conclusion for all involved.”
The next steps to determine when, where, and how the trial will move forward is still being reviewed.
