The two men charged with hazing in the Mizzou incident from last fall have filed multiple items in the Circuit Court of Boone County in the upcoming cases.

The defense attorney for Thomas Shultz is requesting a reduction in bond and to be released on his own recognizance and a request for discovery.

Shultz is asking to be released and will return to court when scheduled. Court documents say there are no facts presented that he will not appear in court.

Both Delanty and Shultz's defense teams are requesting motions for disclosure seeking for the prosecutor's office to disclose information regarding the case in the next 10 days.

The defense team for Ryan Delanty has filed a motion for disclosure, a motion to suppress evidence, a motion to suppress identification and a motion to suppress statements.

In the motion to suppress statements, the defense team is looking to suppress all alleged statements, oral, written, videotaped or otherwise recorded that the state could use for evidence against Delanty.

In the motion to suppress identification Delanty was arrested without a warrant or probable cause and the out-of-court identification was the product of an unlawful arrest.

Delanty's defense team filed a motion to suppress evidence and is asking the court to remove several items that were seized due to an unlawful search and seizure made by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
