    But Kayla didn't rape...why would hers not be released?

    I just find it very strange the 2 'sports stars' charges have not been released.

    Yes it is a little odd that the 3 still have not been released. I really wonder why. I want to read Kayla's.

    The legal documents that we've seen so far aren't the indictments or actual charges. They are motions for joinder of the deliquency charges with the youthful offender charges. They don't include the whole of the charges, just the information from the charges that supports joinder (i.e. trying both sets of charges at the same time)

    Definition of 'Legal Motion': http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_%28legal%29 - basically, it means 'bringing an issue before the courts'.

    Definition of 'Joinder' in criminal cases: [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joinder[/ame] - "Joinder in criminal law is a legal term which refers to the inclusion of additional counts or additional defendants on an indictment."

    So, I don't think we're waiting to see 3 criminal indictments in this case. I think we're waiting to see all six.

    Thanks, Maureen. After reading your post, I recall you had explained that earlier on, thread #1 or #2, maybe...I had forgotten.

    So, is this a normal procedure, in your opinion, Maureen? Or do we usually see more by now...this feels like the sahara compared to the ocean of discovery in the KC case...

    I have no idea if this is normal or not. I don't usually follow criminal cases this closely. This one just intrigued me - maybe because of the ages of my children (and nieces & nephews) & my involvement in our school district here in town, maybe because of my own past, long ago in school...

    It is maddening that this tidbit of info was released, but not the rest of it. I have no idea what is normally released to the public, though (or when). Especially maddening, I think, because people in discussions seem to be making all kinds of assumptions about the charges based on these documents, when really this could just be a sliver of info used to support the motion - not the entirety of the charges (or evidence) at all.

    Agreed. I will pop over to another WS forum later...maybe tomorrow...and see if anyone from MA is around...and if they may know what the normal procedure is...just curious, is all...
