The stateís pre-depo offer was 25 years. The state refused to schedule depositions and provide discovery in a timely fashion. A motion to compel discovery was filed. This did not get the attention of the state. Client demanded a speedy trial, without the taking of depositions. The prosecutor suspected we would be asking for a continuance and was not ready. When a trial was demanded, day 171 after arrest, the state moved for a continuance. The judge refused to grant the continuance. As this case has gained media attention, the judge had set aside time certain for this trial. After selecting a jury, 10 motions in limine were heard and the judge granted each one. The motions included excluding undisclosed witnesses, 170 crime scene photos, 31 photos of victim injuries, cell phone records, nude photos, backpage.com advertisements, defendants confession and pimp references.
