Officer seeks quick trial to refute La. charges

The lawyer for a Natchez police officer says he didn't interfere with his son's arrest on murder charges in November and wants a quick January trial to prove it.
Ronnie McMillin tells The Natchez Democrat that Vincent Bates was asked by Vidalia Police Chief Arthur Lewis to help find his son, Vincent Dotson.
Dotson faces charges for the August killing of Derec "Beedy" Dobbins in Vidalia.
Bates was indicted on charges of accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and reckless operation of a motor vehicle in November.
McMillin says Bates was distantly following Dotson in a personal vehicle to make sure he turned himself in when Concordia Parish sheriff's deputies caught up with Dotson.
Bates was put on administrative leave by the Natchez Police Department after his indictment.
