Hamm granted continuance in alleged stabbing case
Steamboat Springs The prosecution of a man accused of stabbing another man during a fight at a downtown Steamboat Springs bar July 6 has been put on hold for two weeks. Because of a change in legal counsel, Christopher Allen Hamm was granted a continuance in Routt County Court on Wednesday by Judge James Garrecht. Hamm is scheduled to reappear at 2 p.m. Aug. 8.
Hamm was arrested
July 11 on suspicion of second-degree assault and bias-motivated crime, both felonies. Hamm, a Michigan resident who is working in Steamboat Springs, was arrested on suspicion he stabbed Alfred Turner in the leg at Sunpie's Bistro after telling Turner to stop talking to two white women. Turner is black.
