A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
An attorney for the alleged victim in the Kobe Bryant sexual assault case has asked the judge to force both sides to set a trial date as soon as possible.
Attorney John Clune said in a court filing that since the N-B-A star was charged with rape last July, the woman has been forced to quit school, can't live at home, can't talk to her friends, and has received literally hundreds of phone calls and e-mails threatening death or mutilation.
Clune said prosecutors had no objection to setting a trial date.
Prosecution spokeswoman Krista Flannigan and Bryant's attorneys were in court and not immediately available for comment.
In a letter dated yesterday, the woman's mother told the judge that her daughter has lived in four states in the past six months and that she and her husband are constantly worried for her safety.
