    Defense Attorney Konstantine Gurvoich is not connected to the case but told us people in Memphis eager to see Robinson return to face charges will just have to be patient.  

    “As defense counsel, you have to do everything in your power to defend your client and if their rights are going to violated, or possibly violated, you need to prevent that,” said Attorney Gurvoich.

    Gurvoich explained to FOX13, Robinson’s decision could be delayed by a month or longer when Memphis authorities can have her back in custody.  

    “The courts need to get it right. They need to make sure the right person is being taken into custody,” said Gurvoich.

    On Monday, Wright-Robinson's attorney asked to reschedule her court hearing due to health problems. She was seated in a wheelchair during the hearing. Before it began, she could be seen in the hallway moving her legs back and forth.
