FRANK CARSON ET AL CASE
FOR ALL THE MARBLES
BY WILLIAM THOMAS JENSEN (TOM)
Week 15, Day 57 (Objection Asked and Answered. Overruled)
My title today was said over and over and over today. How many times could the same question be asked by Marlisa Ferreira, and how many times could Judge Zuniga overrule an obviously valid objection? Hang em High baby! This judge is doing everything she can to support the prosecution. Is this really a fair trial? Despite my concerns, the defense is poised to take over the questioning of Jim Cook. He was destroyed on the stand once already in the preliminary examination. His time is coming soon once again.
We start out at 9:18AM, with the jury in the courtroom, and Jim Cook on the stand. Marlisa Ferreira shows Jim Cook an envelope that contains People’s 365. It is a thumb drive that contains another one of his projects where he did analysis of the cell phone data records. It is entered into evidence in this case.
We start out with analysis of cell phone data records concerning Georgia DeFelippo. His analysis dealt with cell phone data from 03/30/2012 to 03/31/2012. In a time span from 8:23AM to 10:10AM he talks about 8 events on the cell phone device that is associated with her. The cell phone connections were connecting to a cell phone site that was near Doctors Medical Center in Modesto on the Northwest facing sector. It covers the Carson family residence on Fleetwood drive in Modesto. Jim Cook now talks about a connection that was made on 03/31/2012 that connected with a cell phone site called the South Central site on the West facing sector. It covers Patterson, Newman, and Gustine. At 7:55AM, and 8:01AM her cell phone connected to the same cell phone site on a different sector. This would place Georgia DeFelippo’s cell phone device West of I-5 and South of Patterson. At 8:46AM, her cell phone device was allegedly traveling on Hwy 152 and connected to another cell phone site named PAC which would put her cell phone device somewhere between Santa Nella and Gilroy. Her cell phone device then connected to the Salinas switch on the Southeast facing sector. It is determined that her cell phone device remained in this Salinas location for 2 hours and 39 minutes. I have heard testimony concerning this trip in the preliminary hearing. I think I remember her trip was concerning an estate sale that she was going to.
Jim Cook now starts testifying about a period of time between 07/01/2011 to 02/25/2015. It concerned calls to and from the Law Office of Frank Carson in downtown Modesto. It is determined that there were 609 calls during this time period. I believe these calls were concerning calls that were to and from a cell phone device associated with Frank Carson. On 03/30/2012, the last phone call from the cell phone device associated with Frank Carson was hitting on a cell phone site that covers downtown Modesto. The last cell phone data event on that device on 03/30/2012 was from that device to a device associated with Ryan Schmidt at 4:12PM. It hit off the cell phone site at 19th and H Street on the Southwest facing sector. Jim Cook testifies about a call that was made at 6:50PM from Frank Carson to his residence on Fleetwood Drive in Modesto. Jim Cook testifies that on 03/30/2012 to 03/31/2012, there were no calls from the device associated with Frank Carson after 6:50PM. Jim Cook testifies that this was a Saturday, and that no other Saturday had no calls on this device in a four year period. You are guilty if you use your cell phone, and you are guilty if you don’t use your cell phone. That is the voodoo science that Marlisa Ferreira is using in her case against the innocent.
Jim Cook now goes into the cell phone device associated with Walter Wells. On 03/30/2012 that device connected to the cell phone site in Southeast Turlock at 11:05PM. This cell phone site covers an area that includes Pop N Cork Liquors. Jim Cook now testifies about a cell phone device associated with Natalie Emery that had 3 text message events that happened the next morning. The text messages came from the cell phone associated with Walter Wells. Jim Cook testifies that the device associated with Korey Kauffman was in the same cell phone site area and sector two times on 03/31/2012. Jim Cook testifies that on 03/31/2012, the cell phone device associated with Walter Wells was in the same cell phone site and sector as the device associated with Korey Kauffman between 9:21PM and 9:56PM. Jim Cook states that Korey Kauffman’s cell phone device was in the vicinity of Pop N Cork Liquors and was turned on. Jim Cook now states that on 04/09/2012 between 9:21PM and 9:56PM the cell phone associated with Korey Kauffman and the cell phone associated with Walter Wells were in the same cell phone area. Jim Cook states that there were 46 text messages sent from the cell phone associated with Walter Wells between 04/26/2012 and 04/27/2012.
Jim Cook now testifies about the cell phone device associated with Christina DeFelippo. He states that her device left her residence in Turlock on 03/30/2012 and arrived in Modesto at 9:20AM. Christina DeFelippo, as I remember, testified that she had traveled to her parent’s home on Fleetwood drive to do some cleaning. Jim Cook testifies that on 03/31/2012 there was no activity on the cell phone device associated with Christina DeFelippo where it hit off a cell phone site associated with Turlock. Jim Cook testifies that on 03/31/2012 at 4:36PM, the device associated with Christina DeFelippo hit off the Greenstone tower that covers the Redhawk Casino. She testified that she was up there because she had entered an art contest at the casino.
Marlisa Ferreira now goes into an extensive number of questions to Jim Cook that went over the number and frequency of calls that were made between the people involved in this case. She was doing an analysis of the cell phone data that tried to show guilt when calls were made, and when calls were not made. There must have been over a hundred questions that she asked Jim Cook about how many or how few calls and text messages were sent during certain dates and time periods. We are now done with the morning session. I think we are nearly at the point where the defense can restore some sanity to this voodoo science. I am sure that Marty will have some interesting things to say about the afternoon session. I will be there in the courtroom tomorrow morning to report on what I observe.
Sincerely; William Thomas Jensen (Tom)
