VERONA - The man accused of shooting at police during a standoff last week was scheduled to appear in court for a felony hearing, but that has been adjourned.
The defense had asked for more time to prepare, and the Verona Town Court judge granted that request Tuesday afternoon.
35-year-old Justin C. Carter is charged with felony attempted murder of a police officer, reckless endangerment, menacing a police officer and criminal possession of a weapon. He is accused of firing several gunshots at State Police from inside a barn on State Route 46 Friday afternoon. The standoff closed a portion of the road for several hours while police negotiated with Carter.
Carter is being held in the Oneida County Jail without bail. He has been rescheduled to return to court on August 27th.
