Simpson Hearing for Motion to Dismiss Scheduled Dec. 3

Star A. Simpson ’10 attended a status hearing at East Boston District Court yesterday morning. At the courthouse, a hearing for motion to dismiss was scheduled for Dec. 3. Simpson is charged with possession of a hoax device for appearing at Logan International Airport wearing a circuit board with light-emitting diodes that was mistaken for a bomb.

Simpson’s defense attorney, Tom Dwyer, told The Tech that the case is progressing along a “normal time period.” “If the case ends on Dec. 3, which it will, that’s fast,” Dwyer said.
