Smith vs. Goins to be decided Wednesday, July 23

District Judge Rae Swent will hear closing arguments in the civil case that pits Alexandria Council District 3 incumbent Charles F. Smith against Jonathan D. Goins, an attorney who wants Smith’s seat.

Smith claims Goins doesn’t live in the Juliet Street home, which is in District 3, but instead lives in an apartment complex located off of Louisiana Highway 28 West.

Swent sent attorneys from both sides home with an assignment to review two cases she cited and bring back written summaries. She intends to make a decision after hearing and reviewing those summaries.

Much of today’s testimony centered on whether or not sufficient enough water, gas and electricity was being used in the Juliet Street home, which would indicate that someone was living in the residence on a regular basis.
