Perry parental custody case postponed
TAVIA D. GREEN
The parental rights termination hearing for Earnest and Windie Perry was reset this afternoon in Judge Wayne C. Shelton’s courtroom in the juvenile division.
Earnest, 65, and Windie Perry, 51, stand to lose six of their adopted children, five of whom they've raised from birth, if a judge decides to terminate their parental rights following charges that the Perrys abused, raped and tortured the children.
Windie and Earnest Perry were not present in court Monday, but Elizabeth Perry — their daughter, who is also facing criminal charges in the Circuit Court case — was present, with several friends of the family.
Earnest and Windie Perry's attorney, Pam Spicer, said Windie Perry was in the hospital.
Judge Shelton was not in for the afternoon, so all the cases of the day were reset.
On March 30 at 2 p.m. a motions hearing will take place. The new trial dates for the Perry case is May 5, 13, and 20 at 1:30 p.m.
