Back in court this morning at 9:30 am the first thing I noticed standing outside with the bee reporter at actually showed up for motions. This is really a first. The court had started about 9:35 am and they were discussing some scheduling and general business issues and about 940 the bee reporter got up and left to never return. It will be interesting to see if there is a article put in the bee today about this morning’s hearing that he didn’t actually stick around to hear about, but yet I keep hearing that he is unbiased and fair.
Now back to the really important things. There was basically some scheduling issues discussed as Jesse Garcia is requesting a four-day work week for his physical therapy needs, and is asking for either a Wednesday down or Friday down. Part of the problem that Jesse Garcia has is he just had a complete shoulder replacement a few months ago and cannot put pressure on it as of yet with crutches. But apparently has purchased equipment like a wheelchair to be able to maneuver into the courtroom.
Mme. DA Ferrera advise the court and attorneys that all information about the Hampton incident in Oakdale has been turned over to discovery including the incident itself and his alleged suicide attempt. Also investigator Steve Jacobson has not completed his report of his involvement with Patrick Hampton on the day of the Oakdale incident. Now being former law enforcement myself, I am aware that it does not take three weeks to complete a report on the incident that they claim they had no involvement in, nor took any statements from this professional snitch. It appears to me that they are being very careful what they write in this report, probably being reviewed by attorneys to try to stay on the safe side of this. This type of report that you claim you did not interview or talk to the subject would take less than a half an hour to write.
Mme. DA estimated there are 10 remaining witnesses with some of them are going to be lengthy testimonies, and some of them are going to be very quick. She also stated that Robert Woody’s mother would be called soon because she’s in poor health that want to get her testimony as a matter of record.
Attorney Magana also made a request of all the DOJ results from tests run at the Pop n Cork, as a took a large amount of soil samples and other evidence from the store in the property. She also requested that any surveillance logs that were kept as there was a large number of surveillance and tailing of the outlaw brothers by multiple investigators. Mme. DA stated that there are no other testing results outstanding as a have been discovered, meaning another area that they have no physical evidence.
Ms Magana also advised the court that the audio recordings of the Cooley lie detector test cannot be heard because it just nothing but a large buzz throughout the recording and requested that the DA supply better copies.
Finally the Atty. Gen. for the state representing the Department of Corrections and attempt to squash a subpoena for the confidential records of the snitches Patrick Hamilton and Ronald Cooper. The judge took the records with the Atty. Gen. into chambers in camera, then revealed she is going to take it under submission and rule on the motion on Tuesday.
Court was then adjourned for the day and to be continued on Monday at 10 AM, for more motions to be heard namely Robert Forkner’s motion concerning DA’s ongoing misconduct. There is also a second motion that can be heard that day in regards to a request by Frank Carson but I cannot remember what it was reference to.
Another note Robert Woody who apparently has been housed at another facility outside this County is going to be brought in for a court appearance on Monday in judge Cordova’s courtroom, I think I will make an effort to either be there myself for have somebody there to tell me what’s going on so we can report it to you.
