    I just got through testifying this week. I was on stand by for 4 days. Talk about nerve racking!!! To top it off 2 things happened right before I went into the court room.
    1. The DA gave me furture instructions on what I could and could not say.
    2. I found out the crew from 48 hours was there filming the case.

    The court room was VERY crowded. I was practically sitting in the jury box.

    The part that makes me soooo angry is that a lot of facts did not get out because of restrictions on testimony. The cop that was on right after me almost caused a mistrial because he mentioned a polygraph ( not admissable!)

    I am sick at heart because I just feel so deeply that this guy planned the event of his wfe's death. I also think he's going to get off because a lot of information is just not getting to the jury.

    :This case will probably go on for 6-8 more weeks. I pray there's no mistrial because I don't want to go through this again. If there is then there will have to be change of venue because all of Reno has been reading about this case.

    Well, I'd get a free trip to Vegas But I'd rather be totally done with it.

    The ONLY good thing was that I got to look the creep right in the eyes. He knows I know.....

    Omigod, Spud!
    48 hrs! I would;ve freaked, and I don't freak easily! It sounds as though you did a good job. I'm proud of you looking that t**d in the eye, and not letting him intimidate you. For your sake, the sake of the family of the deceased, and the good folks of NV, I sure do hope there isn't a mistrial. Keep us posted!
