Sharing The Yalkowsky Collection 2014 #3

Here are 46 more pages.

The most interesting thing is the Change of Venue motion.  I don't recall if Bug mentions that in his novel or not....

Google books seems to say that he doesn't but the search function is behaving oddly.

Anyway....


A change of venue means that Charlie asked that the trial be moved out of Los Angeles.  He felt there was too much publicity because of the murders in LA and maybe he could get a fair trial on the moon or somewhere.

Fact is I am not sure he could have gotten a fair trial anywhere based on the publicity, but then the facts show that he never tried to get one either.

The motion was shot down.

Bug mentions the change of venue in his novel on page 540, the last page of section 7 in my version.
He only mentions it after the verdict because Fitzgerald had a tantrum and said they had an antagonistic jury and essentially lost the case when they lost the change of venue. He said anywhere else they would have been acquitted.
Bug said that was just weeping on the part of the defence.
