Counsel for the District Attorney acknowledged that preliminary discussions have occurred on an offer. Judge Barker set Sept. 8 to rule on a motion to modify terms of pretrial release. The calendar call is currently set for Oct. 1 with trial set for Oct. 6. Lee is charged with 31 counts of attempted cruelty to animals, arson with intent to defraud insurer, insurance fraud and attempted theft.
