Jacob Cohen, assistant public defender, said he can't represent Krebs anymore.
The Broward Public Defender's Office, Cohen told Circuit Court Judge Barbara McCarthy, had represented one of the stabbing victims during another case.
Krebs listened to the proceedings patiently, nodding and clasping his cuffed hands.
It was clear, though, that two months in county lockup have taken their toll on the rumored party animal.
In his pre-arrest photos, Krebs was clean-shaven, bordering between muscular and meaty.
But during the April incident, Krebs was physically subdued by Fishtales patrons, who left him with two black eyes, a swollen jaw, and a cut on his cheek.
Krebs -- who some feared might die from the beating -- had to be hospitalized for two days before getting booked into jail.
In court today, Krebs was bearded and gaunt -- more Raskolnikov than Stifler.
McCarthy did wind up reassigning Krebs to the regional conflict counsel -- lawyers who work specifically on cases that can't be handled by the public defender. Krebs thanked her. He told the judge that he "hoped" he'd have a lawyer set by the end of the day.
Krebs' next court date is scheduled for late July.
