Courts > Lawyer for defendant is a no-show Friday

By Tris DeRoma

SANTA FE — After seeing what happened in court Friday, Robin Wood might now have wanted to try to delay his proceedings.
Wood, the 36-year-old Los Alamos man accused of killing a woman in November of last year when his car wandered into the opposite lane of N.M. 30 and hit hers head on, was arraigned in district court.
Last month, Wood was indicted by a grand jury for homicide by vehicle and great bodily injury by vehicle. If convicted, the maximum penalty Wood could face is nine years of incarceration and $10,000 in fines.
Friday’s proceedings didn’t go well for Wood, who showed up without his lawyer, Jonathan Miller. This is the second time Wood showed up for the same arraignment — the first time, Santa Fe District Court Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer recused herself, as she felt she was too familiar with Wood and his struggles with drug addiction to be impartial.
Friday, Wood tried to explain to the new judge in the case, T. Glenn Ellington, why Miller failed to show yet again.
“He called the public defender’s office because he said he wasn’t going to be able to make it today. He told us yesterday that he was going to have a public defender here for me this morning,” Wood told the judge.
Ellington, then addressed Wood on court procedure.
