(WBIR Knoxville)   Tennessee prosecutors indict a third man in the abduction and murder of Holly Bobo, despite giving him full immunity for his cooperation earlier. Apparently his defense forgot to demand the "no takesie backsies" clause in the immunity deal   (wbir.com) divider line 54

Fun fact, signing an immunity agreement actually compels you do  legitimately be truly cooperative. The prosecutors can, and will, f*ck with a defendant if he shows even the  slightest sign of not being cooperative.

Which is f*cked up, because they may now be losing their best witness at the other trials.

He probably said something like "I woke up at 7 am that day and put on my shoes," when it can be proven that he actually woke up at 6:45 and put on boots.

Sorry, no immunity for you. We'll just use all the info you've provided so far, and you can go to jail.

If he were joking it might be. Why do you think this particular case is being reported outside of page 5 in the metro section?

From what it sounds like his immunity deal had to do with disposing her body and knowledge of any drug crimes, so it seems that the prosecution didn't think he had anything to do with the kidnapping and murder, just the stuff after. It sounds like they found evidence that suggest that they were wrong and he was involved in the kidnap and murder. Remember people, real life isn't like Law and Order and once you strike an immunity deal the prosecution's hands are tied if they later find that you were really the murderer.

A lot of people in that area still think the Brother did it. The fact that they now have three people charged hasn't changed that.

There really isn't such a thing as an immunity deal.  I think it's one of those tactics used to get you to spill the beans on camera.  Not legally binding.

Yes, there is. However, the deal has to be met on every account. If you're dishonest, or you hide anything regarding your involvement, the deal can be revoked easily.

Yes.  And it has been quite a few years since reacting to any cute white girl going missing or getting killed with "of course she's white and cute if she's on the news *eyeroll*"  is anything but obnoxiously disingenuous.

I mean it doesn't even seem like that anymore.  The social commentary worked, funnymen. Now there are missing children of all stripes that we have to hear about 24 hours a day.

It doesn't matter what's in the article. The State is "the man" so its automatically wrong/lying/deceptive. Subby's just trying to fight the power and stand up for poor oppressed murderers everywhere.

It was probably something much more significant that that, like he was actively covering for someone.

Like the other guy mentioned, it has to be something bad enough that they'd rather indict him than have him testify.  If he's close enough to the case to be indicted for the abduction itself, that means at minimum they're losing a material witness from the two other cases.

Can they still use the sworn testimony they obtained while he thought he was immune?

So you're telling me a co-conspirator in a kidnapping and murder is ALSO a liar?

I'm skeptical.

In this particular case, it doesn't matter. The reason they revoked the immunity deal, is because they found out he was lying to them. When you sign a immunity deal, one of the provisions of the deal is that you must be completely truthful to prosecutors. If you lie, the deal is automatically (and legally) void.

In addition, any good defense attorney would instantly jump on the fact he lied to the prosecution in exchange for immunity, and get his testimony thrown out in court. So, he is now worthless as a witness.

That's even better.

So again.   Why do I care about one white girl who was killed three years ago in nowhere Tennessee? 40 people were shot in Chicago last weekend. I don't see the front page lighting up with each of their stories.

If only there were some obvious defining characteristic that sets her apart.  I wonder what it could be.

It's Canada but what about Karla Homolka? IIRC she made a deal and after the fact they found out she had much more involvement that initially thought. She served time but probably not enough. I always thought in that case that her deal shielded her from a harsher sentence. IANAL.

I'm not really familiar with that case, but part of the deal for immunity from prosecution is that you have to be completely open about your involvement in the crime - no matter how seedy or horrid the details are - or they can retract on the deal if hard evidence of your further involvement on a crime is discovered.
 
2014-04-30 12:53:27 PM
National and local Chicago news outlets report most weekends on the number of people shot.  Last weekend it was, in fact, reported that 40 people were shot.  Chicago shooting stats often get reported because lots of people find it "amusing" that so many people get shot here even though Chicago had strict gun laws until fairly recently.  

So some might say that it's culturally insensitive to the point of being racist that people use "Chicago shootings" as the media counterpoint to stories about cute white girls being killed.

And this happened just south of where I grew up (Camden), I know the Holliday/Parsons area is a shiathole and that whole area is rampant with meth labs/users. Just hoping any/all perpetrators of this murder get the maximum punishment.
