    IF GBC is committed to stand trial, the following, on Cowan's trial, may give an indication as to when his may take place.

    February 7, 2013

    No date has been set, but it is hoped that the trial can be held in the second half of 2013, possibly October.

    Bolded by me ( yay it's not easy on the iPad) I have imessaging and it only works if both phones are on wifi or good 3G - it's very patchy and I keep it turned off ( I'm in sydney with pretty good 3G most places)

    I quoted and then -
    I held down till it goes blue - then moved the little dots till it encompassed all the text I wanted to bold and then just hit the little capital B on the top left under fonts - hope that helps :)

    Thanks alioop. Much appreciated post. It has confirmed for me that both of the rumours - regarding the Facetime call being unable to be used and the Indemnity/Immunity mixup - have most likely resulted from information incorrectly reported (or headlined) in MSM.
    The Tully blogs probably didn't help either! (Not that locals would lend much weight to anything in those though).

    I may be overthinking the non-contact visit allowed to NBC when visiting GBC, but I keep wondering whether that is relevant to him being tied up in this case somehow, and maybe???? there is some immunity agreement????

    ...unless he is actually allowed contact visits now and we haven't heard.


    I've looked on the qld corrective services inforamtion pages, under policies and procedures, and it explains why a non-contact visit might be stipulated. The following is from that page,


    "Contact during personal visit


    A personal visit must be a non-contact visit, unless the chief executive approves that the visit be a contact visit.
    In deciding whether to give the approval, the chief executive must consider the following -
    1. the requirements of any court order relating to the prisoner;
    2. whether the prisoner has previously escaped or attempted to escape from custody;
    3. whether the prisoner has previously given a positive test sample;
    4. information about the prisoner or visitor that indicates a risk to the security or good order of the corrective services facility."

    http://www.correctiveservices.qld.g..._Security/documents/sasprovisitpris.shtml#1.1

    I cant see that 2,3,or 4 would be likely to apply, so I'm wondering whether there is any court order requiring this??

    Alioop, do you know of any, in this case?

    Sorry if this is all irrelevant.

    I believe the evidence and case against GBC is mostly circumstantial. However IMO, unless she is totally deluded, TM shapes up as a likely prosecution witness. She willingly gave 3 or 4 statements to police, all before Allsion's body was found I think.

    Marlywings, I cannot believe that things take soooo long in our legal system. The poor families - having to wait so long for closure. It just isn't fair. Then I guess there will be the adjournments for various reasons. I can't understand that if things are in place for the committal, then why can't the trial be sooner?

    This frustrates me. Time our legal system was overhauled. :banghead:

    Very embarrassing, indeed. And rightly so. No one is above the law, no matter who your ancestors were. I was a witness once where a doctor was on trial for rape and injecting drugs into many women. Bet he was embarrassed too. And he did the time. :jail:

    This sister, OW flew down for easter holidays before this happened as she was at the long distance running race at the girls school. She home schools her own children.

    Allison was not at the school race that day but GBC was, with his red eyes and some scratches on his face seen by other witnesses. This was the day before the day of the night that her murder happened remember folks?????

    They were fighting the night before too.

    Olivia was at Skull camp for easter hols previous to this happening.

    Yes, I remember the scratches being discussed by people who saw him at the cross-country.
    Weird though that he has since attributed them to shaving "that" morning. There must have been other scratches???

    Actually, wasn't there something about those scratches being from the caterpiller bites?

    Also, you would think that if they had been fighting to that extent, that Allison would have had some marks too, but the hairdresser said she didn't have any that she could see.
    Odd.

    I agree BreakingNews. The wait is far too long but I guess it comes down to a whole lot of red tape.... & far too many criminals!!

    Obby, I have no idea if NBC is currently allowed contact visits with GBC and if not, I have no idea why that would be. Sorry I can't help with this one.

    Timing of the scratches: could TM have inflicted them (pressure and deadline were on)? Could G have avoided A so she wasn't aware of the marks, and then A observed them after the hairdresser appointment causing confrontation? Also might the caterpillar story be BS to cover the fact he purchased antihistamines at the chemist to sedate the kids? I tend to think dumb details get played up only when they are part of a script ie. OW biting her lip in video interview ... I think she had rehearsed G on what to say to the media and was terrified that he was ad-libbing. Sorry if I'm raving. Sleep time. MOO

    Can witnesses identify scratches present on GBC at the school sports day? Did he explain the red eyes and scratches? We look for an explanation. We assume they had been physically fighting, but is it possible that those scratches were put there by somebody else? Somebody who put pressure on GBC?

    I think the most likely scenario is Allison inflicted any scratches seen at the cross country. I think he would have needed to really get his courage up. It was premeditated but not well planned. It is a schoolboy's daydream type of solution ... so I can see him having either a false start or only getting enough guts to do it once she laid into him in return, with the conference and his self-inflicted deadline looming.

    I thought the cross country was on the Thursday and Allison was last seen on Thursday night

    Scratches on the face would more than likely be the result of a reaction, striking out. Serial abusers tend to leave their evidence "out of sight'' Bruises on the body and legs.
