I know many of you been waiting to hear about the motion hearing in regards to Christine DeFilippo, unfortunately the judge was sick again today and it was canceled. I do feel bad that I contacted as many people as I could in regards but not was unable to contact everybody that likes to show up. And there were some people that showed up at the courthouse this morning to find no one there. I do apologize I would’ve posted something, but I wanted to get down to department eight of the regular courthouse, to judge Cordova’s courtroom, to observe the Robert Woody hearing this morning.

While I was sitting in the gallery waiting for Robert Woody to appear for his hearing, Marlisa Ferreira find showed up alongside Kirk bunch. I also notice prior to the hearing when I was out in no hallway waiting for the court to open that investigator Lingerfelt had gone in a side entrance to the courtroom back to where the inmates were. That immediately caught my attention in the fact that Kirk bunch was there also caught my attention.

When Robert Woody was finally brought into court he was wearing a red and white striped jumpsuit, which means protective custody of course. In addition he almost had a mountain man look about him wearing a thick bushy beard and long thick hair.

He again waived more time for his preliminary hearing and he was reset another date of May 23, 2016 and department eight at 8:30 AM.

Sitting in the gallery I also noticed a lady that was sitting in a wheelchair right in front of me who I believed to be Robert Woody’s mother. And as soon as his case was done she and the lady that was with her left the courtroom. I approached her I identified her and asked her if she would have any problems discussing the situation with me. She had some interesting things to say which I told her at this time I will keep in confidence, but it sounded to me like she had some information that she could not reveal.

While I was talking to Ms. Woody investigator Jacobson, Lingerfelt, and Bunch were leading Robert Woody, who was in shackles, out the front door of the courthouse not the inmate exit. As I continue to talk to Ms. Woody she also stated that she was going to the DA’s office to have a visit with Robert since he was here. Now I may be mistaken but that it appears the investigators have been ordered not to talk to any of these witnesses, but continue to do so, and are now providing special visitations for Robert Woody with his mom.

Now I had heard rumors in the past that I had no confirmation about till now of these type of visits that were happening. We again hear constantly that there are no special arrangements being made for any of these witnesses but then keep seeing otherwise. Now why would the DA’s office be making special arrangements for visitations for a murder suspect, who has admitted to the crime, is scheduled to testify in the Carson et al. preliminary hearing, but does not have a deal in place to do so as of yet?

Sadly, the situation was so obvious and downright flagrant, with their walking down a public hallway instead of making him go out the inmate access. Everybody in that hallway saw what was being done they never even attempt to hide it. And I repeat again the investigators have been ordered by Judge Zuniga not to have any contact with the witnesses.

And as a side note apparently three weeks after the Hampton situation in Oakdale the report by investigator Jacobson, from what I was told today, finally completed his report on that incident where they have claimed the whole time they did not have any conversation or doing the interview with Patrick Hampton after they took him to the District Attorney’s Office. So what I am understanding here it took them three weeks to write a report that said they did nothing.

Another side issue of this Carson case, that seem to have plenty of these, is Sabrina Romero, who embezzled $12,000 from her employer three years ago, is finally made a plea in her case and apparently from what I’ve been told has been sentenced. It must be also noted that the court index is not been updated in the Sabrina Romero case, it still shows her last hearing on March 14 and no disposition or future hearings.

This was all done without the knowledge of the victim, who has gone to court about 25 times to be nothing but frustrated by this lack of justice that we have, and was not even notified of the sentencing hearing for her to make a victim impact statement. If that were me I’d be screaming at the top of my lungs to anybody that would listen to this talking bull shit that is going on in this case. Now note Sabrina Romero has been sentenced but is not in custody nor has she been in custody since this all started. Apparently she never went to jail from the start so she could not have time served. There was a lot more to this and other issues going on and I will be posting as it becomes public information and provided to me.

Prelim scheduled to be back in session tomorrow at 9:30.


  1. Well at this time, none of this really surprises me. The judge tells the DA not to do something and they go ahead and do it anyway just so they can say “sorry your Honor, it won’t happen again. And of course her response is “okie dokie”.
    Thanks again for keeping all of us updated on this case, you have no idea how much we appreciate it.

  2. It never seizes to amaze me in the stupidity of the justice system we have. Innocent people have no rights and the criminals have a free go of just about everything. Where and what has giving the DA and Investigators the right to feel free to disobey direct orders from the Judge and do as they dam well please. Carson and the others do not get special treatment and some of them can only see their spouse in the courtroom unable to even speak to them or have a meal from a restaurant brought to them or get special treatment. I say enough of this one sided favoritism and corruptness with their lying deceitful doings need to stop now, and if any justice is left in our system someone needs to take control immediately and put a stop to it. Start holding the real criminals liable for their crimes and the false actions they have done and said to hurt and harm Carson and others.

  3. Let’s say the Bee sent their reporter and snapped a few pictures with Woody and the DA’s people walking out the front door- in my opinion that is news worthy, and a photo with them walking together out the front would lead to a lot of questions. Were any of the Carson 8 attorneys there? Why would the Bee not send a reporter to a court appearance for Woody? I have to think that the DA’s office had permission, and a deal is in place, and they are prepping Woody for his testimony in the Carson prelim, but are they allowed to do that? I just cannot imagine in other scenario. He must be a cooperating witness now. I don’t know how this works exactly, but to defy a judges order the way they did only makes sense if they had permission.

      dawg417 says:

      Actually they can discuss things with a witness prior to their testimony after all it is their witness. But they cannot after they start testimony. But they continually say there are no deals or special treatments in place but that is exactly what this is. How many murder suspects do you think get this type of treatment?
      To an inmate this is a deal or special consideration and they are fluffing his pillow to keep his testimony as they want it.
      I will say it again, sometimes it is not doing the right thing, it is the appearance of doing the right thing. It was an flagrant act and they do not think things through.

  4. Back to yesterday, it does seem like a puzzle fitting together a bit. Judge is sick, but had she not been “sick” Feireerra’s bunch would have been at the Carson’s prelim and not at Woody’s appearance I assume. Remember you wanted to go to both hearings and chose Woody’s and was hoping another blogger would cover Carson. How did Feirrara’s group not only show up at woody’s but have a plan in place to take him somewhere? Can you put the two together for me? Say the judge wasn’t sick, where would the DA’s group have been yesterday? Was it a spur of the moment decision to take Woody out the front door, or was it planned way in advance?

      dawg417 says:

      If the motion had gone forward yesterday Marlissa would have probably had someone stand in for her at woody. It was just a continuation. We had made arrangements for someone to go to woody’s hearing anyway and it was at 8:30 and the motion was at 10:00. so it would have easily worked out.
      And I do not feel that the arrangement with woody was spur of the moment, I had heard it was going on but had no proof of it before. they allow special visits when he is in court.
      I wonder if they do that for all murder suspects?

  5. Maybe Marlissa’s group shows-up, the judge is sick, she says let’s just take care of this business now because we do not have to be in court today. Just bring Woody with us and we’ll head back to the office and save some time and get this done.

      They take him and his family to red lobster for lunch first

  6. Must be good for good for business at Red Lobster. You are having lunch and a guy in jail suite shackled shows up. “Waiter can we get the bill now?” “You haven’t eaten” “We are no longer hungary….. and.. ummm…uhhh.. I have a doctor’s appointment I forgot about.”

  7. Seriously, if he is going to make an appearance as witness, they might be working on his appearance. Check the Men’s Wearhouse maybe. Probably a shave and a haircut too. Getting him sized up for a suite.

    “You’re gonna like the way you look, I guarantee it!” – George Zimmer (not George Zimmerman from from Sanford, Florida dammit!)

    On another serious note, might the DA’s office want him getting used to wearing a suite, instead of just throwing him on the stand and being very uncomfortable in a suite. Maybe how to sit without a self-inflicted- wedgey he might be trying pull out on the witness stand. Gotta break the suite first in first!

      dawg417 says:

      Seriously dude you’re killing me when I get home I might have fun with all these comments

  8. I am serious about the suite though and proper grooming. If he is the main witness, and it goes to trial, the DA will want Woody, Hampton, and the other tweakers to appear very credible witnesses. With their records I would think that their appearance is a top priority. Hiding tattoos, now-a-days they get them on their face, etc., Can you make a person like Hampton be a civilized witness on the stand. Eliminate the F-bombs, teach to respond with a yes sir, or no sir, and my favorite answer- I do not recall.

    Which brings me to another question, if they should answer “I do recall or have any recollection.”
    On cross they are going to say go this page or that page of the prelim testimony (although there is still no substance thus far), or they go to interviews and point out what the person said on record. Will some be able say “I have limited recollection because I was on drugs at the time”. Undoubtedly this will probably help the defense, but maybe here or there, it helps the prosecution? Thinking about it, the DA’s office is going to have to spend a lot of money on clothing, and grooming. From what I understand too, you can prep your witness, but you cannot coach them? I know bringing up OJ gets people a little angry, but it is something that I have been watching a bit, just to sort of get an idea on how some things might work. Back to E.F. Lee Bailey, on cross he really went after Mark Furhamn on was he coached by the DA’s office. Which from what I understand is a very fine line between prepping and coaching a witness. Are you allowed to work with witnesses on the questions they may be asked on cross examination? I know at the time people were upset because the defense “played the race card” as they put it. However, I feel it was important because at it turned out Furhan was the person that was first to discover a lot of evidence. Bailey, I think, let him testify, testify, about the narrative of that night, then went into have you ever used the N-word. To which Furhman said no over and over, they Baily brought in witnesses, that said otherwise, and I think the final straw was Furhman on a tape using the N-word. I believe at some point he took the fifth, and Bailey and Cochran used that to pretty much impeach all his testimony, or at least put a lot of doubt into the jury’s heads as to if Furhman testimony was reliable. Cochran and Bailey just kept hammering away on that point. I believe what Cochran said over and over, is something that can be used in the Carson case- “If you cannot trust the messenger, you cannot trust the message” With the records of all witnesses in this case, I think that really applies in this case.

    I did not proof read what I wrote-a heads for cop sucker. I have left some words out on accident. I always do.
