DIRECT EXAMINATION OF JOHN ALLEN BY AF

Sergeant with OCSO since 1981. He was the supervising sergeant in this case.

He was shown Defendants FD and FE and he was asked to bring them to Court. He contacted someone in Forensics and had them brought here. One is 2 video tapes received from Mr. James Hoover when they interviewed him on 12/18/08. The other contains a single video tape they received at Bill Shaeffer's office on 1/7/09.

He has reviewed them. They are in either 8 or super 8 - mini DV video tape. They were copied to CDs. CD was marked as Defense Exhibit FC. He believes these are copies of copies.

No further questions

CROSS EXAMINATION BY LDB

James Hoover - someone affiliated with Dominic Casey. He knew DC from the inception of this case to be an investigator with JB?

OBJECTION - OVERRULED

He was initially working for JB and later for the A's. He worked for JB from July to October of 2008 - that he was not employed by anyone until he worked for the A's in November? He believes he was working for JB, but possibly not being paid. Then went to work for the A's.

Mr. Hoover was not someone he had been dealing with earlier. DC was, he would email info to him regarding the location of a live Caylee and the location of ZG.

Mr. Hoover came to his attention because he was trying to sell them to the National Inquirer. They heard from Mr. Hoover on 12/18 regarding a lady who had reported driving down the road....

OBJECTION - SUSTAINED

2 video tapes turned over on 12/18/08? Yes, in the parking lot of the Publix when Nick Savage and he interviewed Mr. Hoover. It was his understanding that this was all the info Hoover had.

He received an additional tape which contained additional info.

Did Mr. Hoover ask you for any money?

OBJECTION - OVERRULED.

REDIRECT EXAMINATION BY AF

DC originally worked for JB's firm until 10/1/08. Then, either 10/1 or 10/30 he began working for the A's. He has no personal knowledge of this.

No further questions.

Sergeant excused.
