Jake Rossen's article just came out:
Also, updates in Nick Schultz's case... his prior attorney withdrew (he's out of cash) and he's gotten counsel appointed by the Court. They're going forward with the misdemeanor charges, and the defense attorney will return to court later once he can meet with Nick and look at the charges, the file, etc. Nick is still out on a PR bond.
