Defense attorneys for Robert Benac and Michael Wenzel asked for more time in October 2018. The trial date was supposed to be set by the end of the year, but I don’t think it has been. The attorneys have an expert who has determined the shark was dead at the time of the dragging, but in the video, you can hear someone say, “It looks like it’s almost dead” They might be hoping we will forget all about this animal cruelty case….but we won’t!
