  • Time for court

    Tomorrow morning, 9am U.S. District Court in Orlando. Im excited and nervous at the same time. First time going to court, and I havn't met with the prosecution face to face. I talked with him for about 5 minutes and he let me know what he was going to want. I have no involvement in the case, and they are calling me as a Government Expert Witness pertaining to Ship's Navigation. Any last minute advice before I head over there?
    I talked with the FBI agent and he said it's probably gonna 10 minute testimony tops, and that there probably won't even be a cross examination, ill let you know how it goes.

    As an expert witness and not as an arresting officer you may be asked for more detailed answers, but my best advice, keep your answers short (yes/no if possible) and don't offer anything "extra" in your answers. Again, this is mainly advice for arresting officers.

      My advice is to listen very carefully to the question and only answer the question. Offer nothing extra unless really needed for your own purposes.

        Just answer the question and nothing else. If they want to know they will ask another question.

            Well I got there and talked to the lawyer prosecuting the case. I waited...and waited...and waited... While I was waiting I was talked with the 3 field agents that were involved in the case. About 1 pm I got the word that the case would be heard on Jan 7th. It seems that one of the witnesses had a baby this past weekend and her doctor said she can't leave her house for four weeks.
            I did get to meet with the defense attourney and showed him where the alleged rape took place, I presume they are arging the US doesn't have jurisdiction since the Cruise Ship was 26.5 miles offshore. Silly lawyers
            Ill bring it back to life in Jan.

            BTW: Why didn't anyone let me know that I should bring something to read...I was the only person that was sitting there twittling my thumbs. But then again all the others were FBI people and had done that numerous times before.
