CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Justin Olle, 25, the local wedding planner accused of ripping off brides and grooms for their dream nuptials, has decided to wave a jury trial and elected to have a bench trial before a judge.

Olle is on trial in the 117th District Court before Judge Sandra Watts. By waving his opportunity for a jury trial, Judge Watts will hear the evidence and decide his guilt or innocence and punishment.

The court is expecting to hear from more than a dozen brides, catering companies and banks.  The trial could take up to a week. Olle faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
