Oscar Corral has resurfaced at the Miami Herald. A source close to the Herald reports that he's:
Working as a general assignment reporter. He has been pulled from the Cuba beat and his Cuban connection website has vanished. The general assignment beat covers everything from quinceañera parties to dog and pony shows.Actually Corral's first report since he disappeared from the pages of the paper is about Pakistanis in south Florida who are keeping a close eye on the situation in their homeland. Corral's blog is still live but is no longer linked from the Herald. He has not posted on it since immediately after his arrest for soliciting prostitution.
On the legal front the Miami-Dade court clerk's office says that Corral's attorney asked for a continuance to prepare the case and therefore no trial date has been set.
A Herald Watch source opines that:
Continuances can be up to six months and a lawyer can ask for three continuances, delaying the case since the time of arrest for up to two years. They will eventually have to go to trial when the continuances run out unless he pleads out. The long postponements mean that the prostitute and pimp might not be around to testify. Yet, because the arresting policewoman is the main witness Oscarito is acorralado.
