12 Local people viewed the case in court, and in 1 hour and 40 minutes all agreed that there was not enough evidence to convict him.
1 hour and 40 minutes after a 2 1/2 day trial.
I think they were all pretty much convinced.
Really! Less than two hours for a not guilty! But this was just another usual case in Monroe that should have never been a case at all because there wasn't any evidence. They are famous for putting people on trial without any evidence. All they use is just cheap talk and their trials merely consist of slander of innocent victims of this crooked legal system to get their convictions. Most people that hear about these kinds of cases can't believe that the Monroe legal system can do that to someone without evidence. They think there must be at least some evidence if the person is on the front page of the newspaper and they're putting them on trial. Nope! Today's verdict demonstrates the fact that Monroe does bring cases without a shred of evidence.
There are various comments on MEN site under the article ‘I did not harm that girl.’ They say she was beaten to death and then dumped, but forensics said there was no blood found in the car. His lawyer said there was not a stitch of evidence. The same thing his lawyer said when they bound him over. No evidence. The Monroe legal system is not right. It's more of a popularity contest with the Monroe prosecutor. If they have family members complaining about something, they bring charges without any evidence and then just make up lies. I feel for the family that they lost a daughter and a sister, but charges have to be based on more than just emotion. Speaking of which, I read that they put huge gory death pictures of the girl decomposing in a muddy wet area on a big board to sway the jury. The prosecutor used every underhanded tactic to get a conviction according to all accounts, probably illegal tactics, but this time it didn't work for them. The first judge should have thrown it out until the prosecutor had evidence. Surely with checks and balances, the second judge should have dismissed it. After the prosecution rested their case with no evidence, the lawyer again asked to have it dismissed. The judge said no. The justice system in Monroe will they take every shot they can to convict innocent people and will not back down even when they know the defendant is innocent. Just look at the Dotson case and there are others. They know Dawn Duvall killed Mrs. Dotson, but they prosecuted the man with her testimony, the real killer. Do you think they will now do anything to right the wrong they committed?
