Oh, and he spent a month in jail.  Not prison.

Other than that, great headline.

khyberkitsune: I feel sympathy for the man. I truly do. I'm doing felony time and yet I have the evidence that outright proves the crime was never committed and the evidence was fabricated (e-mail header is forged) and the DA nor public defender that told me to plead guilty want to do shiat about it.

A felony for something email related? Did you get mad after elections and threaten a certain president?
Oh wait, don't answer that. You're innocent. We're all innocent in here. WINK WINK

Well, there was an eye-witness and as we all know they are much better than video cameras at recording information accurately.

Hes black and his name is Brown. Thats a probable cause for an arrest right there. Was he on cops? I could swear he was on cops, the episode where they arrest the black guy after running him down.

CruiserTwelve: Por que tan serioso: You couldn't be more wrong. Most attorneys dont put on affirmative evidence at prelim. Its a chance to see what the prosecution has. HOWEVER, if you have the goods you put it on. Period. A failure to do so is boarder line malpractice.

Defense attorneys rarely present evidence at a preliminary hearing, although they are allowed to do so. At a prelim, the judge must look at the evidence "in the light most favorable to the prosecution," so defense evidence doesn't hold much weight.

In this case the investigating officer should have looked at the alibi evidence and, if it was convincing, approached the DA and asked for the charges to be dropped pending further investigation. If the cop didn't do that, the defense attorney should have asked for a pretrial conference with the DA and presented the evidence for consideration.

Either the cop was lazy, incompetent, or he didn't believe the alibi evidence. The defense attorney is not without blame, however. If his alibi evidence was that convincing he should have presented it at the preliminary hearing for the judge to consider, or he should have asked for a pretrial conference.

I'd like to know how they considered this guy a suspect in the first place. Why did they even show his picture to the victim for identification? There's something missing from this story.


You need to get out of here with your facts and thoughtfullness and stuff. We have witches to burn, dammit!

AbortionsForAll: At first, I read the headline and I was all outraged and stuff, but then I opened the article and saw that the dude was black and all my outrage disappeared. I was telling my friend this, and he said that I was racist, though I can't understand why he would say that.


Wow. Obviously, your friend is the racist for noticing racism. You just never know who will be one...

/unless he's Chinese, they're all racist

I sure hope this guy didnt get fired for not showing up for work for security for 1 month. I mean, it would leave a position open for a white ex-cop.
