    Han murder defendant asks for disciplinary records of DOJ analysts - Santa Barbara News-Press


    Defense attorneys for the man accused of murdering Santa Barbara herbalist Dr. Henry Han and his family are asking for the employment records of the Department of Justice analysts that processed fingerprints recovered from the crime scene.

    Pierre Haobsh and his attorneys, Senior Deputy Public Defenders Christine Voss and Michael Hanley, appeared for a discovery hearing before Judge Brian Hill in Santa Barbara County Superior Court on Tuesday [11/5/19] afternoon.
    [.....]
    As a compromise, Judge Hill indicated he would only require the prosecution to produce an analyst’s entire disciplinary history if they had any record of errors within the five-year period.

    He also asked prosecutors to investigate whether any DOJ staff verified the analysts’ evaluation of the fingerprints.
    [.....]
    The evidence hearing will continue Friday afternoon. [11/8/19]

    @Niner- Am I reading your entry correctly in that the trial is expected to last 6-8 month??

    “Trial to start 2/4/20-vacated (Estimate to take 6 to 8 months)” (copied and pasted from your 11-8 entry)

    The actual facts of this case are chilling. This man, Pierre Haobsh, killed a beautiful family, including a five year old little girl, in a greedy frenzy in his quest to insinuate himself into Dr. Han's new business venture. Haobsh was crazed by his own impatient greed for money, IMO.

    I would think the evidence will support the fact that he is totally guilty. I can't understand why it would take 6-8 months though, but then defense has successfully delayed proceedings so far. I do worry when it's a Death Penalty trial.

    I'll have to go back to refresh my memory. Can't remember everything after so long. Did he wrap the wife and child's body in plastic while waiting for Dr. Han to arrive home? Did the gun he used come from the Han home?

    Bringing this forward as a memory refresher.

    Pierre Haobsh arrested in the triple murder of Santa Barbara couple and their daughter | Daily Mail Online

    He did wrap the bodies in plastic wrap and duct tape.

    Can't find what I'm looking for about the gun.

    His sister made a statement. She is a well-known blogger.

    Here it is! A loaded handgun and property belonging to a victim was found in the red Lexus. Haobsh must not have brought his own gun, but used perhaps a gun from the victim's home. Well, it doesn't mean he didn't intend to kill them somehow, but he might not have owned a gun of his own. He showed up at their house and must have terrified the wife before killing her and the little girl, in wait for Dr. Han.
