The defendants, or at least one of them, is claiming that all charges will be dropped later this month when the latest set of motions are heard. We’ve not heard as much about it this time because all that crap is apparently still banned on the other blog. But the grapevine is rife with similar comments that the Titanic about to sink; Bill and I are going to be cellmates with Agent Z, Ramos and Bremmer; Cope is going to lose his bar card, Mandel is apparently still boneable in the eyes of that crew; yada, yada, yada. Yeah, all those threats and intimidation we had to put up with on the other blog for months while waiting for the first set of motions to be heard that were going to end the case right then and there. So apparently, it is now all going to happen on Oct. 30. I can’t wait. If my cell has air conditioning, I’m good.
Yesterday, the 4th District Court of Appeal issued its decision as expected, upholding Judge Michael Smith’s ruling throwing out the conspiracy charges. By now you’ve probably read the story in the Press Enterprise, but if you haven’t you can find the whole story at the link. What I found interesting about the story was the very last paragraph, which read:
The case is tentatively set to go to trial Feb. 1. But during an August hearing before the appellate court, one of the justices and Larson alluded to the possibility of an appeal to the state Supreme Court, which could delay proceedings again.
I have to wonder why Larson would bring it up. We shall see what happens but I am not at all confident that a trial will start on Feb. 1. Oh yeah, I should be three months into my prison sentence by then so I probably won’t care.
