I feel so bad for what you have been through. It really breaks my heart.
Prosecution is afraid of giving WH reason to appeal, is the only reason I can think that they gave in. What a sham. Suicide was a stupid defense, what the heck are they going to claim next trial, when presumably AJ's privacy will be respected.
I still have confidence in this process and these prosecutors. There will be justice - one way or the other.
SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Wesley Hadsell has a new trial date after the first trial attempt ended in a mistrial earlier this week. The next trial will now begin May 19 and is expected to last for three weeks.
New trial date set after mistrial declared this week for Wesley Hadsell
From your link, OMom:
After hearing the first few witnesses testify, Hadsell decided he didn’t want to keep an agreement his defense team made with prosecution regarding what parts of his criminal record would be allowed to be brought up during the trial.
There wasn’t time for prosecutors to restructure their case without the evidence that was allowed under the agreement, so they requested a mistrial and the judge granted the request.
The judge also made it clear during Friday’s hearing that for the new trial, there will be no unofficial agreements between the two sides. Every agreement must be in writing, signed, and handed over to the court.
I think this was sort of planned all along. From another article:
"“We sort of had an agreement and then Wesley changed his mind and that’s his right. He heard Jennifer testify and Wesley sort of realized that parts of his criminal history would come out and he felt uncomfortable about that. He didn’t feel comfortable going on with the agreement the way that we had made it,” said Ellenson." Mistrial declared in Wesley Hadsell murder case
I think him and his lawyer had a waiting game going on, with a plan B in case she said what they thought she might.
That is not a bad turnaround. And Wesley has used his last court interruption card.
His next move will be to fire his attorney and start the process over. Unless he really likes manipulating this attorney, then it's worth the fun of it.
The defense attorney calls Jennifer by her first name as if he knows her like that. Because he is a puppet for Hadsell. Right where Wes wants him.
Too bad we have his number. Dude played one too many games.
What I've been through is nothing compared to my daughters...
Prayers for those girls, too, @Zach
