Trial Update: Jury Questions

I just read that jurors requested the Anthony Young testimony transcript in the latest news from NorthJersey.com:

Bergrin jury requests testimony transcript, adjourns for weekend without reaching verdict

While you do not need me to repeat anything in the article written by Peter J. Sampson, I can point you to the Anthony Young transcripts from the first trial. If Young's testimony changed, it couldn't have been by much. Young is a coached witness that also rehearses his statements, so every time he repeats his story it is slightly altered from the last time. This would most often be referred to as inconsistencies in testimony.

In Paul Bergrin's last trial Anthony Young's testimony began on the 27th of October, 2011, and concluded on 3 November, 2011:

Begins on page 103:

In this current trial, Anthony Young was sworn-in late in the day on 1 February, 2013, testified on 4 February, 5 February, and finished his testimony on 6 February, 2013. This is in the trial minutes for these days:

Anthony Young claims that he killed Kemo Deshawn McCray and melted the weapon the same day at Hohn's auto body shop. He claimed that his girlfriend at the time, Rashidah Tarver gave him a ride to Hohn's shop. Both Mr. Hohn and Ms. Tarver deny this ever happened. Read Mr. Hohn's sworn statement beginning on page 2 and attached to this letter:

Ms. Tarver is the person that Anthony Young claims drove him to Hohn's shop. She says she never did and unlike Young, she's not a criminal or an informant - she is a school teacher. Read Ms. Tarver's testimony on 9 November, 2011 in the first trial - it begins on page 37 and concludes on page 60:

I definitely rest my case on the topic of Anthony Young.
