    Sharon Carrillo lawyers appeal decision to keep prosecutors on case
    http://www.penbaypilot.com/article/...-appeal-decision-keep-prosecutors-case/101276

    BELFAST — Attorneys for Sharon Carrillo filed a notice of appeal in Waldo County Unified Court April 23, the same day they filed requests for copies of court transcripts from the two court hearings regarding improper conduct by state prosecutors in obtaining records against their client.

    The requested transcripts include the March 27 hearing for the Motion for a Protective Order and the April 12 Motion to Disqualify hearing.
    [.....]
    The purpose of the request for the court transcripts is to use the information in an appeal, which requires paper transcripts of the proceeding in question, according to court documents.

    Carrillo’s attorneys, Chris MacLean and Laura Shaw, both of Camden Law, had argued to have Assistant Attorneys General Donald Macomber and Leane Zainea removed from the case after they improperly procured privileged and confidential information.

    Justice Robert Murray denied the request to have Macomber and Zainea removed, though he did acknowledge the records in question were improperly acquired and ordered the documents turned over to the Court.
    [.....]
    Sharon Carrillo’s forensic mental examination is scheduled for May 4. The exam takes place at the Offices of the State Forensic Service in Augusta, and can take up to three hours to complete.
    [.....]
    According to court documents, the Court had also planned to address a pending Motion for Joinder previously filed by the State. Other matters that were to be discussed included a Motion for Forensic Evaluation of Julio Carrillo.

    CBS 13 investigates: Pregnant women in Maine's jails

    May 22, 2018
    PORTLAND (WGME) – Sharon Carrillo, accused of killing her 10-year-old daughter, is just days from giving birth in jail.
    [.....]
    Nine months pregnant with her fourth child, Sharon Carrillo is now awaiting trial for murder.
    [.....]
    "They visit our medical department more than your normal inmate with no medical condition, but it's really routine," Col. James Bailey said.


    Bailey says they've never had an inmate give birth in custody, but expect to transport Carrillo to a hospital once she goes into labor.
    [.....]
    According to a judge’s order, after giving birth the Department of Health and Human Services will take custody of Carrillo's child.

    Updates on the prosecutors: Sharon Carrillo's lawyer wants two prosecutors removed, calling their errors 'not mistakes'

    From the article: "Carrillo’s Defense Attorney Chris MacLean claimed prosecutors from the Attorney General’s office inappropriately and erroneously obtained records relating to his client’s mental health and mental capacity. MacLean says Carrillo has the mental capacity “of a 12-year-old” and is overwhelmed and fearful of the legal process. “She’s shaken to the core,” he told the court."

    GMAFB. My niece is 12, turning 13 in a couple days, and I assure you she knows right from wrong. What an absurd statement. The mental capacity of a 12 year old??! Twelve year olds are fully capable of knowing that the abuse the parents inflicted on Marisa is wrong and terrible. I would even wager most 9 year olds would have the capacity to understand how wrong the abuse was.

    Let her shake to the core. Good.

    So guessing from that article posted above - Thank you by the way Alleykins!
    That the Supreme Court has NOT made their decision yet? I wish reporters would follow thru on their reporting.

    Or did they come to a decision and it's just not in the article?

    TIA!

    I agree, it is absurd, and I hope the prosecutors bring that up during child. 12 year olds are not helpless creatures. If they'd said the capacity of a 3 year old, it might have washed with me, but not 12. I was baby sitting overnight at that age, and new how to take care of a child without beating the crap out of them. The only thing I didn't do for myself at that age was drive, work a full time job and do the budget. But growing up in a single parent impoverished household, I did everything else, like take care of my younger siblings, chores, buy my own clothes, and get myself out the door for school. Her diminished mental capacity/maturity is no excuse for what she did, and no excuse to treat her with kid gloves. Actual children who were younger than 12 have been tried and convicted for murder as adults. Not sure why she should be treated any differently, but that's Maine for you.

    ETA: Regardless of her mental capacity, I agree what the prosecutors did was a blatant misuse of power and downright sneaky, all my opinion.

    I'm thinking they're discussing it and will announce their decision in the near future.
