Booth mentally fit for trial


Three doctors submitted reports to the 3rd Circuit Court concurring that Martin Frank Booth is mentally fit to proceed to trial on a variety of criminal charges. Judge Elizabeth Strance received the reports in court Monday morning.

Strance set Booth’s trial for September.

Booth is facing charges of meth trafficking, eight counts of promoting dangerous drugs, promoting controlled substances near a school, three counts of promoting detrimental drugs, three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia, six firearm offenses and terroristic threatening.

Strance last month revoked Booth’s bail.
