LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE JURY


Y

ou have before you 3 different cases. You will reviews all three cases and report your verdicts/comments in the place provided in the comments section.


Docket #1
Warren Jeffs aka "The Prophet"
Jeffs was apprehended Monday night north of Las Vegas during a routine traffic stop. He had been on the run since he was indicted last summer on statutory rape and conspiracy charges in Arizona. In Utah, he faces two counts of rape as an accomplice for his role in what authorities say was the sexual assault of a teenage girl by an older man Jeffs had forced her to marry. The charges carry sentences of five years to life.

But while we're here, let's look at some of the verses from the Old Testament in the Bible...
In Exodus 21:10, a man can marry an infinite amount of women without any limits to how many he can marry.
In 2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, 14:3, King David had six wives and numerous concubines.
In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines.
In 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomon's son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines.
In Deuteronomy 21:15 "If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons...."

And remember, this is the same Bible you put your hand on and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God... Now somebodies got to be wrong here.

The thought occurred to me that if this guy was a prophet... shouldn't he have also seen the arrest coming?

Docket #2
"Would you like pants with your coffee?"
Police arrested a motorist accused of twice visiting a coffee stand while naked from the waist down. Garry Scott Harding, 37, of Bend was arraigned Tuesday on public indecency and stalking charges.

A 16-year-old worker at the stand told police that a man without pants or underwear visited the stand twice over the last few weeks and returned Monday fully clothed, according to a report written by Roberto Robles of the Bend Police Department.

She called police during the last visit and officers stopped Harding before he could leave. During an interview with investigators, Harding explained that his ex-wife had once removed his pants before the couple visited a drive-thru window in Montana, according to authorities. Harding apparently said he couldn't stop thinking about the experience and wanted to try it again.

Docket #3
"I'm sorry, my parents locked me in the closet"
A teenager was sentenced to 53 years in prison Tuesday for killing a new schoolmate who showed interest in boys she had dated. Judge James Teros called the killing "a murder over nothing."

Sarah Kolb, 18, had been convicted in February of first-degree murder and concealing a homicide in the death last year of Adrianne Reynolds, 16. Kolb's ex-boyfriend pleaded guilty to the same charges.

Kolb read a statement to the judge after witnesses testified that she was a good friend and student who endured a tough upbringing that included being locked in her room as punishment and being harassed because of her bisexuality.

Kolb said such experiences left her numb, unable to experience emotion. Really? Just wait til "Bob" and "Sammy" get ahold of her in prison... she'll be numb okay.
