    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #17

    Right but per @Seattle1 if the jury hung on involuntary manslaughter at least some of them did not agree with that - IMO

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #17

    So basically this might have been a drunk driving accident? * ETA * according to some jurors

    He may not have planned to murder.

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #17

    That's my wild guess as well. I wonder if this could end up like Murdaugh where the Judge has to question each juror about their deliberations. Somehow the defence needs that on the record IMO

    Germany/Portugal - Christian Brueckner, 27 @ time of 1st crime (2004), charged with sexual assault crimes, Praia de Rocha, Portugal. #4

    Typically when a judge makes an error of law, it's appealable. Such an error, even a very bad one, does not usually give grounds for removal for bias. In this case, the Judges role is to hear the case and form views on each sides presentation, and the evidence - 100% of which the Judge already...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    The fact that there is often no connection between killer and victim is one reason these types of cases are so hard to solve ... for all we know, these were not his ideal victims at all, just the ones who happened along. There was a similar case in germany a year or so ago, where two women were...

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #17

    So do you see this turning into a more of an appeal on the legal aspects of how the Judge handled the jury? I can't see the trial Judge granting the motion to dismiss .... MOO

    Germany/Portugal - Christian Brueckner, 27 @ time of 1st crime (2004), charged with sexual assault crimes, Praia de Rocha, Portugal. #4

    Good luck to them, but as a general rule it is a heavy lift to get Judges removed from a case for actual bias, merely for making a decision adverse to one side.

    Germany/Portugal - Christian Brueckner, 27 @ time of 1st crime (2004), charged with sexual assault crimes, Praia de Rocha, Portugal. #4

    Posters are aware the arrest warrant decision is not the verdict in the case right? It's an ancillary order at a different burden of proof. All it really means is that if CB were not already jailed for different offences, he'd currently be out on bail. IMO Also - the Judge already knows all...

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #17

    This is why I am a bit skeptical of this motion to dismiss. It would obviously be a shocking development if the foreman and judge somehow failed to realise between them that the jury had acquitted the accused on a murder charge. I don't see how the defence lawyers can be witnesses to the truth...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    Also - i fully get at trial, in a case which was not solved for years (e.g McStay), many theories arise, and the defence legitimately seek to hook these theories up with evidence for the Jury. All fine and good. What appears to be new here, is that before trial, this stuff is being woven into...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    Right - but also specifically in this motion - it seeks a Franks Hearing. The Judge is only interested in legal argument and factual allegations in support of that. If you start including wild theories for which you admit there is no evidence - is the Judge supposed to believe that is written...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    That content was clearly not written for her IMO, so it would be pretty obvious to her that it was an end run around the gag order. No surprise that when the crime scene photos then leaked she put 2+2 together. Maybe she was wrong, but you can see why she would have thought that. MOO

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    RSBM. This is why I found the recent Murder Sheet podcast so fascinating - was the MW strategy actually an attempt to build a supporter base by use of leaks and wild speculation in motions? Like this is just wild IMO. Why on earth would a theory not supported by any facts be included in a...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    I'd even go further. When they wanted to mislead, they omitted some the direct quotes and cross referenced so it can't be checked by the public. This is IMO what they did with the TL allegations of lying in the Franks. I suspect we'll find the deception is actually in those footnotes because...

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    The Judge ruled specifically on this question already (my emphasis). So as far as the law is concerned, TL did not lie in securing the search warrant. https://www.wishtv.com/news/crime-watch-8/judge-in-delphi-murders-case-hands-down-multiple-rulings/ MOO

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #16

    I am kind of sceptical about the defence filing. It seems insane to me that the jury could have reached an acquittal on murder but somehow no one told the judge. And i have a lot of trouble believing the judge somehow engineered to keep it secret. Be interesting to see how real this is MOO

    Abby & Libby - The Delphi Murders - Richard Allen Arrested - #187

    Right. My opinion is they just drop references to the conspiracy theories that swirled around this case - especially the idea that the girls were killed elsewhere and brought back. As they have no evidence to support this idea, they engage in wild speculation. This is IMO, the work the...

    MISTRIAL MA - Professor Karen Read, 43, charged with murdering police officer boyfriend John O'Keefe by hitting him with car, Canton, 14 Apr 2023 #16

    RSBM For me the state's argument used circular reasoning to explain away the facts that don't fit so well with their theory. In other words, you start with "SUV reversing at high speed" and end with "victim with tail light debris" then claim that the bits in between 'must have happened'...

    Germany/Portugal - Christian Brueckner, 27 @ time of 1st crime (2004), charged with sexual assault crimes, Praia de Rocha, Portugal. #4

    I feel this is definitely one of those cases where one is better to simply read the final judgement when it comes down. Speculation about what the Judges will or won't find based on witness testimony is speculation at the end of the day. We didn't see the witness. IMO
