By all standards the case against Vincent Brothers seems to be going slowly.
Earnestine Harper's son Eddie Harper Sr. said the delay doesn't worry him.
"It doesn't bother us," Harper Sr. said. "We're very patient. We know God is in control."
He and his family get regular updates on the case from the prosecutor's office.
"If he's acquitted he's acquitted, if he's guilty he's guilty," Harper Sr. said. "We know God has already judged. To us this is law and procedure, and that is important to us. But we know God has already judged."
The prosecution has been trying to hustle along the Brothers case for several months to the chagrin of his defense attorneys.
Brothers' former attorney Kevin Little has repeatedly reminded the judge in the case that the prosecution had a 10-month head start in its investigations.
Brothers is entitled to a speedy trial -- that means the trial should happen within 60 days after his second arraignment.
But he repeatedly waived his right to a speedy trial before the preliminary hearing. The preliminary hearing normally happens 10 days after the first arraignment.
The prosecution and defense were not able to comment for this story because they are under a gag order.
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
