    Criminal defense attorney says kidnapping charges against Sidney and Tammy Moorer should be dismissed
    By Taylor Herlong
    Published: April 15, 2016

    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW)- Sidney Moorer is scheduled to appear for a pre-trial hearing Monday on charges related to Heather Elvis’ disappearance.

    Last month, the solicitor dropped murder charges against Tammy and Sidney Moorer, but the couple still faces a kidnapping charge.

    Criminal Defense Attorney Stuart Axelrod says he’s been following the case for years, and he simply doesn’t see how the case can move forward.

    His attorney sent a list of evidence he wants kept out of court, which includes communication between the Moorer’s, staged photographs of the Moorer’s posing with guns while on vacation, and communication from Tammy to Heather and her family. Sidney’s attorney also asks the kidnapping and obstruction of justice charges not be tried together, any plea deals offered to Moorer made admissible, and to stop the state from using some testimony from Bree Warrellman.

    On Friday, Tammy’s attorney filed a motion under a seal that mirrored the motions submitted to the court by Sidney’s attorney. The motion would allow Tammy to join into the same motion that was filed for Sidney.

    Seems like TM's "paid" attorney lets SM's "indigent" attorney do all the work, then "me too's". Is this a $$ saving tactic?

    As far as Axelrod, his picture ad pops up on my phone app for WBTW almost every time I open it! He is big on advertising his services. DUI, defense, "personal injury", etc.... His comments are meant to appeal to his potential clients.

    Sidney Moorer & his wife Tammy covered their faces as they walked in with their kids. #MoorerHearing

    Why would they cover their faces!?? Those mugs have been on the news for years now!

    Curious as to why the Elvis's aren't in the courtroom and where is the state? Any experts on here that can explain why? tia

    Don't think the D realizes the camera (and audio) is rolling.

    Did the judge say something about the kids not being allowed in the courtroom?

    They're going through the long list of various credentials, publications, organizations that this witness has done or belonged to. Defense is now up and questioning him on some of the above. It's rather dull stuff.

    The important point: this witness has never not been qualified as a forensic video expert in all the years he's been working and testifying. The expectation is he will be determined to be an expert witness here too. Let's see if the judge manages to find a way to disqualify him.

    Reverse projection is process of overlaying images (past and present) to make observations or get measurements Fredericks says

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15 10m10 minutes ago
    Reverse project has been discussed a lot this morning. Fredericks says it can be used and is the same as headlight spread pattern analysis

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15 9m9 minutes ago
    Do you consider yourself to be an expert in headlight spread pattern analysis? yes says Fredericks

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15 3m3 minutes ago
    How many cases have you testified in with regard to headlight spread pattern analysis and it being unique to cars? Fredericks says about 6

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15 2m2 minutes ago
    Judge says Grant Fredericks will be permitted to render an opinion. http://ow.ly/i/iA7gY

    Fredericks says his testimony will help the jury determine the class and characteristics of the truck (headlights are from it)

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15
    Livesay says Fredericks replicated the situation and circumstances almost identically. He agrees

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15
    Fredericks says he asked for about a dozen vehicles that appeared similar and of the same class to compare and contrast them in this case

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15
    "I tested more vehicles for the purpose of comparison than in any other case that I've done" Fredericks says.

    WPDE ABC15 &#8207;@wpdeabc15
    "Every visual aspect that could be compared was compared" Fredericks says

    Fredericks has a copy of a publication given to him from the state that represents 5,000 forensic experts from around the world. It has a forensic imaging glossary.
