MICHAEL DIAMOND’S CASE ADJOURNED

Trap shooting star Michael Diamond’s Olympic dream hangs in the balance, as a Port Stephens magistrate waits to decide whether to speed up a criminal hearing against him.

Diamond has pleaded not guilty to firearm and drink-driving charges at Raymond Terrace Local Court today, and asked that his matter be heard quickly so he might still make the Rio selection cut-off date.

Magistrate Caleb Franklin has adjourned the matter until Friday, so Diamond’s lawyers and police can determine how long the hearing is likely to take.
