Yea I went in for the deposition so the case could move along. They did the deputies and defendant on May 1 I believe.
Mind you, Sept 5th when I went to the bank, next day I asked for a time stamp from the bank for my atm transaction. It was 10:33a.m.
My phone records indicate a 911 call at 10:36a.m. with a call back from me hanging up on that call at 10:38am, the one I answered. So, in the few minutes I left the bank until stopped and making the call, you can imagine how much conversation/interaction I had with that asshole behind me.
That deposition took over 2 hours, seriously, two hours to ask me questions that had nothing to do with the asshole trying to kill me. It was FAR BEYOND anything I anticipated. That defense lawyer had all kinds of stupid questions to ask me, many of which were objected to, but I had answered after the objection. He is of the same ilk as his client IMHO
. To me it was a joke to have to give a deposition for the defense. It's just how it works here in FL, if you don't do it, they take you to the stand and do it in open court I guess. No big deal, the facts are obvious.
The defense had filed motions to suppress the defendants statements. The judge has yet to rule on that so far as I kn ow. I can say though, the defendant during his deposition basically stated under oath that the deputies were lying about his statements. What a fucking idiot.
This could go to trial as soon as the week of June 9th.
