Since her May 24 disappearance, law enforcement officals have been searching for Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos. Over the course of the investigation, both her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, and his then-girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have been charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

However, neither has been officially charged with something that directly related to the New Canaan resident's murder. Now, Fotis' attorney is requesting that all charges against his client be dismissed.

According to the Hartford Courant, the presiding judge stated that he would review arguments made by both the prosecutors and the defendant and revisit the issue at a later date.

Additionally, the judge also reminded Fotis that the gag order remains in place. Prior to the judge's statement, Fotis and his legal team had attempted to have the order lifted so that he could openly discuss his account of what happened to his estranged wife. Norm Pattis, Fotis' attorney, argued that it was an unfair ruling due to the fact that it prevented his client from being able to defend himself in any regard.

Since his initial statements regarding the gag order, Pattis has reiterated that he believes it infringes on his client's freedom of speech. 

"Our view is given the public interest in the case, and the way the case has unfolded thus far, his hands are being tied to his detriment. Thereby compromising his fair trial right," Pattis said Wednesday morning on the Chaz and AJ show on 99.1 WPLR.

A formal appeal has since been filed with the state Supreme Court requesting a hearing to determine whether or not it should be overturned. Pattis has until Oct. 28 to file the associated brief. 

Aside from the aforementioned legal issues Fotis has faced regarding the mother of five's whereabouts, he additionally had to return to court last month in order to address issues with his GPS monitoring system. Reportedly, problems had continued to occur due to Fotis refusing to properly charge the batteries in the device.

For her part, Michelle Troconis was also recently deposed for 45 minutes by an attorney representing Jennifer's mother, Gloria Farber. However, Troconis invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer anything regarding Fore Group's finances.
