Former Glendale City Councilman John Drayman will return to court on July 16 to set a trial date. The July date was set by L.A. Superior court Judge Stephen Marcus. In July, the scheduling of the trial will be determined. Marcus stated that the lawyers had requested a fall date to begin trial.
“We’ve always asked for a September – October trial, however with the attorney’s schedules it’ll probably be October – November,” said Drayman. Drayman’s lawyer Sean McDonald was present representing Drayman. McDonald is Drayman’s third lawyer.
Drayman appeared calm during the brief proceedings. He is facing 28 felony charges including embezzlement, filing false tax returns, money laundering, forgery, falsifying a financial statement and perjury by declaration.
