OK, Let's talk about his IQ. In fact, Let's look at the testimony of his own witness, Dr. William Wilkins: http://www.callahan.8k.com/wm3/wwilkins2.html DAVIS: Ok. And the WAIS-R is the test that you use to determine the defendants IQ? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: And in that particular test, what was the performance IQ? WILKINS: 75? Let meyes. His Performance IQ was 75 in the test he took for the trial. DAVIS: Ok, and in 1992 there was alsoprior to the time you did your examination there was another IQ test, correct? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: What was his performance IQ at that time? WILKINS: 88. So his performance IQ plunged 13 points from the previous year. In fact, prior to the test given to him for his trial it was consistently average... DAVIS: Ok, so the two past IQ examinations that had been performed on him immediately prior to the one that you did indicated that his performance level was in the average range, is that correct? WILKINS: Uh, low average, yes. The first placed low average, the second one average, yes. DAVIS: Ok, well am I correct in understanding that anything above 80 is in the average? WILKINS: That depends on the criteria you want to go by. Typically itsSocial Security uses 80 above, other places use 84, so yea. DAVIS: So, by most criteria 84 and 88 would be in the average range? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: Ok. And when we talk about performance IQ, describe what that is, what that involves. WILKINS: Those entail, problem solving, conceptualization tasks, thinking tasks, theyre non-verbal. Example is putting together puzzles. Being able toI show you a pattern of blocks and you have to build designs that match the pattern of blocks. Its conceptualization in a non-verbal form, problem solving in a non-verbal form. DAVIS: And in regard to that he rates about average, right? WILKINS: On those two testings, yes. So his previous performance scores were average - he's charged with murder, and in a test given by his witness, his score suddenly drops 13 points. You suppose maybe he was faking? Let's see what his witness had to say about that... DAVIS: Now the MMPI-2, that was another test that you conducted on him, is that correct? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: Now I dont want to get too complicated cause I dont understand all this stuff, but I notice down here you said, lets see, you said he had a highor you said a mild elevation in the F scale. WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: Ok. Now Doctor its true that what you actually found was a T value in that F scale of 83. WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: Now are you telling me that thats a mild elevation? WILKINS: Its an elevation above normal levels. DAVIS: Well dont they rank the elevationsas far as the T scale is concerned isnt that something thats actually ranked in terms of low range, middle range, moderately high range and very high range? WILKINS: Yes. That may have been a mistake then. I may well have mispronounced what it was supposed to be. DAVIS: This is a text regardingMMPI Handbook. Show me here what an 82 to 88 T score on the F scale indicates to you in that book. WILKINS: Uh, very high. DAVIS: Very high? WILKINS: Yes. This would not be quite the same because this is for the MMPI rather than the MMPI-2, which changed critera, but it would still be in the high range. DAVIS: So when you put in here that that was a mild elevation, that would not be accurate would it? WILKINS: No. It would not be. No. DAVIS: And then from that statement that it was a mild elevation you interpreted that that could show malingering, right? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: And malingering means what, Doctor? WILKINS: It means, uh, making up stuff. Trying to present yourself as being ill when youre not for some particular gain. DAVIS: Did you explain to Jessie what these tests were being performed for? WILKINS: We talked some about them in general, yes. DAVIS: Ok. And he knew that you were coming to court to testify about the results of these tests? WILKINS: Yes. DAVIS: And you talked with his lawyers before you took the test or gave him the test? WILKINS: Yes. So his own witness got caught on the stand "mispronouncing" Misskelley's malingering index - when the actual score strongly indicated he was faking to aid in his defense. These aren't opinions, they are the documented results of his testing. Of course this wasn't the first time Wilkins got caught "mispronouncing" MMPI results... A psychologist who evaluated Jessie Misskelley Jr. as borderline mentally retarded and very suggestible went before the state Board of Psychological Examiners last month and had his practice limited. Dr. William Wilkins of Jonesboro must practice under the direction of a supervisor and cannot handle sexual abuse or neuro-psychology cases, he said under rigorous questioning from prosecutors this morning in the capital murder trial of Jessie Lloyd Misskelley Jr. Why was his licenses restricted? An evaluation of Wilkins done by another psychologist reported concerns about Wilkins' lack of knowledge of fundamental psychological defects and the scales used in scoring the Minnesota Multi-Phasic Personality test (MMPI) and Wexler tests, common psychological and intelligence evaluation tools. Wilkins used both those tests, along with the Rorshchach test, in evaluating Misskelley. http://callahan.8k.com/cg...ingtimes/ET020294_01.jpg The fact is, Misskelley wasn't retarded - even when he TRIED to be.
