Obama Effigy Case
By Angela Hatton
Lexington, KY – Two Kentucky men who hung an effigy of President-elect Barack Obama on the University of Kentucky campus could have their case heard by a Fayette County grand jury. Defense attorney Fred Peters says 22-year-old Joe Fischer and 21-year-old Hunter Bush waived their right to preliminary hearing today. Peters says they opted instead to take their case directly to a grand jury in hopes that the charges will be dismissed. The two men were arrested after the effigy was found hanging from a tree over a walkway in late October.
