A Fayette County prosecutor says he'll go forward with drunk driving charges against country singer John Michael Montgomery.
The prosecutor had sought a delay in the trial but now says the DUI and other two charges against Montgomery could go to trial.
Montgomery's attorneys will be in court June 12 to set a trial date.
Also, the judge in the case assigned the trial to a different courtroom. She said she didn't want to be perceived as having a conflict of interest because she used to work at defense attorney Brent Caldwell's law firm.
Besides driving under the influence, Montgomery is accused of carrying concealed weapons without a permit and prescription drugs in the wrong container.
Caldwell says his client has a permit and a prescription, so those charges at least should be dropped. He's also questioned the credibility of the arresting police officer.
