BOISE — Judge Steven Boyce sanctioned a Mountain Home lawyer Thursday afternoon for filing a late-night error-filled motion asking to intervene in the murder case of Chad Daybell.

Boyce told attorney Terry Ratliff he was angry when the motion was filed “and I think I’m angrier now” during the tense 20-minute hearing in Ada County.

Ratliff filed the motion to intervene and continue the trial on March 29 at 11:42 p.m., just two days before jury selection was set to begin in the case. Several words were misspelled – including “motion,” “continue,” “proceedings” and Ratliff had the case number wrong, according to Boyce. He also claimed three times in the motion that he represented Daybell as his defense attorney, but that was not true.

The filing was entered into the iCourt system on Sunday, March 31 – hours before potential jurors were scheduled to arrive at the courthouse. Boyce, his staff and attorneys had spent the previous week going through juror questionaries in Boise.
