Why would an innocent person run right to a attorney and give them money to represent them after seeing himself on the news as being a person of interest, if it was me and I was innocent I would just have called the cops looking into it and told my story as to why I was there. GUILTY...
what would he have said differently without an attorney? why would an innocent person pay sum tard attorney a grand to tell the truth for himself, he wasn't charged with a crime, there wasn't a warrant for him, a innocent response would have been to call the authorities there and a say hey that's me on the video, how can I help!

Online interview I heard said he was out of town for relative's wedding, not vacation. Also said police questioned other liquor stores and found nothing. Why would he go to only one if he had done anything? Also, police were given opportunity to search his home, and could have done so while he was gone, and view his collection and they declined. Locals with ax to grind against Pickett frustrated because they know there is nothing.

Why would he go to a mom and pop liquor store, to purchase an exclusive bottle of bourbon? He went to get rid of the liquor at a small liquor store believing the clerk or manger wouldn't think twice or know any better.

Only, high end liquor stores would carry that type of exclusive liquor. He thought he could get away with it and it would be a my word against their word scenario. However, he forgot about security cameras with audio options. Another person stated to get a person who is a certified lip reader, to be the icing on the cake.

I bet he struck a deal. You'll never know until the chips start to fall. Good day!

I know Chris and do not think he would ever do anything like this. It just isn't him. Why would anyone who has $26,000 + of stolen bourbon that had been reported on the news stolen since Oct. 10th or 12th (long before he is on video tape at the liquor store)wear clothes that he would be easily recognized in and drive his own vehicle? Someone with the amount of knowledge and resources that he has wouldn't do this. Everyone that worked in liquor stores knew that a massive amount of Pappy Van Winkle had been stolen before the news reported it because they have suppliers that work for the distillery come in once or twice a week (depending on the store)to see what they need for their stock. Has anyone thought someone would try to blame an innocent person to cover for someone they knew? And to "For real" You don't have to ever be accused of a crime to know your miranda rights.. You have the right to remain silent, you have the right to an attorney, anything you say can and will be used against you. I hope you know that you don't just call up the police and tell them you are innocent. If you are ever accused of anything innocent or not and spill your story to the cops you might just be in jail, and begging for that attorney. He doesn't have to be guilty to hire an attorney, he is smart.

You would have one to believe the store manager and clerk lied on a person they didn't know.

Lack of evidence or confession, doesn't equate to a person being innocent.

I seriously doubt that he had anything to do with this.

Like I stated, lack of evidence and no confession, does not equate to being innocent. Let's wait until everything plays out. I seriously believe he cooperated with the investigators. If he did give names and those individuals are indited and they take it to trial. The informant name will be on their papers.

Lack of evidence with no confession= to be continued

Those liquor store employees did not stand to gain from the allegations.

If he was a collector of exclusive liquor, he would know that small mom and pop store would not carry a $1500+ bottle of bourbon.

*To the advocate for the principal, nobody stated they had an issue with him choosing to drink alcohol. Did you miss the story line? He was a suspect in an attempt to sale stolen liquor.

I have wondered about store clerk and whether he could fully understand what was said. Many times at some of the convenient stores, etc., I can not understand half of what is said. I do not believe for one minute that the principal did anything wrong in this case. I would have my lawyer getting the papers ready for those who may have damaged his reputation.

I don't find your arguments compelling. If it becomes evident that he had nothing to do with it, did you harm an innocent man?
