Friday paper carried a story that as a result of two days of testimony, Judge allowed the state to add in 8 new felonies. Two felonies were the result of "refiling". One of the victims had relocated to TX and couldn't be located to testify on Thur so the state dismissed two felonies related to this victim. On Fri, the detectives were able to locate him so the charges were refiled. That leaves a total of six new charges. The total felony counts stand at 49. Preliminary hearing to resume on Tues. Sep 4.

Yes big bear...the parents of the victims were allowed in the court room when their child was testifying. The court room was closed and the newspaper is under a gag order which means even though a reporter is allowed in the court room the reporter must keep identifying information out of any articles the newspaper prints so to keep victims identities private.
As far as the mother of the adult who has been charged with 49 felonies thus far.....As a mother I am guessing it was two very difficult days....hearing witness after witness testify to simular stories relating to sexual abuse.....probably gives her a more accurate perspective of what her son is up against.

Was Brad's mother in the courtroom while the kids testified..Brad is an adult and I 'm not sure its propper for her to be in there staring the kids down. Just thinking of simular trials of this nature.

Big bear....marvin and his wife were just sending a kind message to brads mother....her name is brenda....and yes she was allowed in the court room the entire time....remember...he has not been convicted of aany crime yet....so he would have the right for a family member to sit next to him for support .......no one bite my head off for the above....I have my own opinions about this case obviously u can read my previous posts...

Looks .ike BP may be,if convicted be spending some time behind the walls in McCallister. If that is where they send him if convicted that is like living in a dungeon. Be a nice place for him be. But of copurse that is just a guess where his next address might be. And he does have to be convicted first. And there seems to be plenty of evidence against him to do just that.

The defense has requested a change of venue. I think regardless of the district this.trial ends up taking place in.....the coverage will be there...Criminal proceedings are news worthy...guilty or innocent...they r public information and news worthy.
