April 23, 2012 a pre-trial was schedule for the foursome we have been following: the widow of Raymond Zachry, Darlene Miller Zachry a/k/a/Zachery, her sister Annetta Frackman and friends Lisa and William “Bill” Werneke in the case of a forged will of Raymond Marc Zachry, and insurance fraud.
A group of supporters of Raymond Zachry accompanied his mother, Shirley Sanservino to this pre-trial since Ray’s mother had been assured that at this pre-trial there would be a determination of either a hearing or Zachery/Zachry would agree to a “plea deal“.
Zachry/Zachery arrived as well as William “Bill” Werneke. Each was given an extension by the court due to a letter from the attorney of Werneke and Zachry/Zachery was on hold until the court suddenly discovered a “sealed letter” from her attorney and dismissed her to leave.
Many telephone calls later, and searching the criminal docket the following is the entry into docket sheet for April 23, 2012:

Sobel, Jonathan J.
04/23/2012 Orally in Open Crt Record
This time there were five witnesses in the court room, two telephone calls to attorney Jonathan Sobel to verify that he was still the attorney of record for Darlene Zachery/Zachry to verify that he still represented her as an attorney – he was definitely a no-show.
How could the above court record happen without the attorney and prosecutor actually being in court?
Only in Pennsylvania, the home of Keystone Kops, illusionary court hearings and attorneys who do not show, yet hold arguments on a case.
Stay tuned folks there will be more to come of this ridiculous Kangaroo Court.
