His new attorney, Lisa Anderson, specializes in “aggressive motion practice.”

PANAMA CITY — The case against former chief prosecutor Greg Wilson has taken another turn, as local attorney Lisa Anderson has signed on as Wilson’s main defense counsel on the case.

Anderson, who runs Lisa Anderson Law on Harrison Avenue in Panama City, joined the case on May 4, ten days after Wilson’s first defense team — Waylon Graham and James White — asked to withdraw. That motion was granted by Judge Michael Overstreet in a pretrial hearing Monday afternoon with little fanfare. Prosecutor John Campbell did not object to the move.

During the hearing, Anderson said another counsel will be joining the defense team, but did not mention any names. Another pretrial was set for July 2, and the case could be heading toward a trial the week of July 30. Campbell said the state intended to call fewer than 10 witnesses to testify during the trial.

Anderson began her involvement in the case by filing an extensive demand for notice of expert testimony and demand for any discovery already completed by the state, including the names and addresses of any person known to the prosecution who may have any information relating to the charges, any information obtained from a confidential informant and whether there was any electronic surveillance being conducted of Wilson.

According to her website Anderson specializes in “aggressive motion practice” and has taken more than 60 cases to a jury as a criminal defense attorney.

Wilson, the former second-in-command with the 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office has been facing a felony count of introduction of contraband into the jail and a misdemeanor count of perjury since October at the conclusion of a BCSO investigation.

BCSO took a sworn statement from Wilson on Sept. 29, asking if he knew about two inmates — sisters Clista Robbins and Christy White — passing notes, or “kites,” while meeting with him at separate times within a jail interview room. Wilson denied under oath the allegations as “absolutely false.”
