According to WHBQ-TV, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith were accompanied at a hearing on Friday (May 27) by their attorneys who requested their next court date be rescheduled.
The news stations’ Jeremy Pierre tweeted the news, which notes that the pair’s next court date will happen on July 1 with Smith’s bond hearing happening on the same day.

Michael Scholl, Smith’s attorney, reportedly claimed he has more evidence that will possibly convince a judge to grant bond for his client. Smith’s family and friends are also expected to speak on his behalf during the July 1 hearing.
“We are receiving more information and I want to take a look at that,” Scholl said, according to WHBQ. “One of the factors that goes into the bond is likelihood of conviction. Other factors are flight risk.”
Young Dolph was shot and killed in Memphis on Nov. 17. He was 36. WREG reports that Memphis Police said one male victim was located and pronounced dead at the scene and confirmed Dolph was the victim.
