As the months and months of preliminary trial go on in the Frank Carson Trial, the cash register keeps going cha ching, cha ching. Over a month ago, Supervisor Jim DeMartini stated on the Backstory Internet Radio Show that the tab for this preliminary trial had topped $3,000,000.00. He also stated that “We are going to lose this trial.” We think that could be approaching $4,000,000.00 at the time of this article. We have a couple of more months left in the preliminary trial, and the dollars keep falling into a money pit. This preliminary trial is currently the second longest in California history. I wonder what the final total charges will amount to at the end of this fiasco. If the trial is held over for trial in front of a jury, the total cost could be staggering. The tax payers are going to be on the hook for all of this. This could affect everyone with reduced services in Stanislaus County. There is absolutely no way a jury of twelve people will ever convict anyone based on the case that has been presented, and the scum of the earth that are providing the evidence for the prosecution. The best thing would be for the judge to throw this whole thing out the door, but I think we will see our tax dollars wasted on a failed attempt at convicting the innocent. Kirk Bunch told Robert Woody that “This is a train that will not be stopped.” God help our budget if he is right.
