HB man requests trial

A Holmes Beach man accused of raiding a neighbor’s dresser for panties has a new attorney and is demanding a jury trial, which could take place in December.

Ernest Kendler, who faces a second-degree felony charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling, had been scheduled to appear in court Oct. 11 for a plea hearing.

But Kendler is now scheduled for trial the week beginning Dec. 12.

Defense attorney Connie Mederos-Jacobs filed a motion to enter a plea of not guilty on behalf of Kendler and demanded police reports and prosecutorial information in the case.

Kendler is accused of stealing underwear from two women who live near his home on Neptune Lane.
