Although Trutanich has not officially announced his candidacy for the 2012 election to replace District Attorney Steve Cooley, Trutanich told the LA Times that he did not consider himself bound by his 2008 promise. Perhaps the picture of Trutanich taking an oath was removed to prevent it being used by rival campaigns, however, it seems that TRU is False has a copy.
Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers To Go To Trial in Lindsay Lohan Necklace Case
No shortage of headlines for DA hopeful Danette Meyers as Radar OnLine broke the news that troubled Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan was rejecting a plea bargain that involved spending time behind bars to settle the dispute over Lohan's appropriation of a necklace. The case will now proceed to a preliminary hearing where even more news coverage is likely.
That preliminary hearing is set for April 21, 2011 in Judge Stephanie Sauntner's court. Radar OnLine is also reporting that they have inside information on how Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Holley, plans on keeping Lohan out of jail when (notice we don't say 'if') Lohan is held to answer after the preliminary hearing, and found to be in violation of probation. More speculation on the defense strategy at Radar OnLine.
Meyers gave a clue to her strategy when, according to the Disney InfoNet, it was revealed that the prosecution could include evidence of prior bad acts by Lohan. Apparently there are some questions Meyers wants answered regarding a $35k gold Rolex watch that Lohan was slow to return to its rightful owner. More here.
Deputy District Attorney Bobby Grace Wins Major Murder Trial
|LA Times NOW broke the story of a great trial success.|
While the Lindsay Lohan case made news everywhere for Meyers, Deputy District Attorney Bobby Grace got his fair share of headlines at the conclusion of long and difficult murder trial of a former fire captain. We previously reported that Grace has successfully prosecuted 60 murder trials, I guess we can now revise that to 61. Congratulations on a well deserved victory for justice.
