Ferris Fuller’s defense attorney, John Boyd, asked Wednesday afternoon that Fuller’s first appearance be delayed about two weeks to give the Ottawa attorney more time to review Fuller’s case. Judge Kevin Kimball granted Boyd’s request and set Fuller’s first appearance for 9:30 a.m. Oct. 7 in Franklin County District Court, 301 S. Main St.
Fuller was arrested Saturday night near the intersection of East Eighth and South Oak streets in connection with a stabbing earlier that night in the 800 block of South Sycamore Street, the Ottawa police department said. The victim, Cameron Hartman, 24, Ottawa, was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.
Fuller has a history of criminal charges, including an aggravated robbery charge in November 2008, as well as a driving under the influence charge in 2012, according to court records. Fuller also has several charges for various offenses as a youth, according to court documents.
Fuller was charged Monday in the stabbing incident, garnering a felony count of aggravated battery. He is being held at the Franklin County Adult Detention Center, 305 S. Main St., Ottawa, awaiting his court appearance.
