Well JD2 story is now NOT coorberrated by this first defense witness. Why would JD 2 say it happened with this good friend present, then this good friend gets on stand and says she never saw or heard the "attack". the plot thickens. but from a jury view...JD 2 can't be believed now, unless Ms. Johnson tears apart this witness's credibility....
THE JURY ROOM
"although we feel Dr. Bergstroms actions are innappropriate, immoral and not up to the standards of the AMA, we find him not guilty of this crime"?
can't convict him cause he likes it up the back alley or that he is a womanizer or because he "alledgedly" uses cocaine for sex. Whether Bergstrom went to prison or not, he , like many others who were arrested but not found guilty, will have to live with the stigma given to them by the community and his record will carry this forever.

Out of this article that is what you chose to pay attention to? I guess the information on his tape recorder doesn't matter. You apologists never cease to amaze me.

Let the defense present their case before you convict him. Obviously he is not perfect, however, he still has a right to have his say in court before the jury can judge him! Remember, innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt...And there is plenty of doubt in this case.

You maybe didn't notice that the doc was CAUGHT ON HIS OWN TAPE buying, selling and using drugs and sex. He is guilty of ruining his own life, and that of his kid's.

I'll buy $100 worth of whatever the hell Oh Please-Carmel is on, it's so good that reality can't penetrate it. It's so potent, that its lasted this whole trial. Forget all the facts, just take some of this and it's all fiction. There IS still plenty of doubt, DOUBT He's INNOCENT.........lmfao.

I never said he was a saint or that he hasn't made some poor choices in his life. I find it unfair that he has been tried and convicted before the trial is even over. All of the facts have not been introduced yet so until they are, people should reserve judgment until it is all said and done. It is only fair, don't you think? And by the way, you sound like one of those nasty jealous people yourself by the comments you have made. You just proved my point.

If you do Oh Please-Carmel will tell you that their names are wrong or that they are really men dressed in drag or that you're completely off your rocker or that the defense isn't finished yet or that just about everyone who retain Worthington as a lawyer is "REALLY" guilty and looking to plead out his case for the almighty dollar. I could be wrong though; im a jealous kook according to Carmel. Hell, let it roll Field, what can it hurt, no one's telling you "STOP" or "ENOUGH"...

Amen to that! A lot would be questioned without a doubt. Knowing Doe 1 there are so many questions about her it is unbelievable that SHE would be believed. Many wild, wild women in Carmel. I am a single woman here and witness them and their antics. Also, their false claims about men. Sadly, the woman can claim anything and ruin a man's life. There are too many naive men. Dr. Bergstrom being one of them. He is not a saint, but truly has helped so many people on the peninsula. One I know of is that he fought the medical community to save a woman's only leg. She still has it.
Hopefully he will wake up and smell the coffee! A little late maybe.......Let's be fair about this.....

Knowing the names of the victims would not change anything for me as I don't know them. I don't think it would change anything in the courtroom, either. The facts of the case are only those presented in court. Those of us who do not know the parties can only rely on what is in the paper and news, and here in the forum. I would think there might be legal ramifications to printing their names.

But the point is well known that predators look for women of this caliber to abuse, just so this will happen, she is not believed. That is why the law changed to protect the victim, and "level the playing field." It is still not level, and it can't ever really be level, which is where the jury comes in. The jury is supposed to be un-involved with either party and free to decide. If they know nothing about either party, the field is level. The jury is a wonderful thing.
