The "I Don't Remember," "I Just Remembered" Prosecution and its Parade of Perjury

Apparently, Chris "Facebook" Arnt and Len "The Man" Gregor have decided that not only fabricated and perjured testimony constitutes "proof" that Tonya Craft molested some little girls.

Oh, no, they also want us to believe that the "I don't remember" and "I just remembered" statements from their witnesses also constitute proof. Actually, if it constitutes anything, it is that we are seeing a parade of perjury. It is a good thing The Gang That Could Not Lie Straight is not vulnerable to perjury charges, since that would mean that the people who suborned the perjury in the first place, Arnt and Gregor, would have to indict people for saying what the Dishonest Duo told them to say. Don't think that would work very well....

Think it is just me that is curious about so many of these instances of memory lapse AND "recovered" memories? Think again:
Pool Room consensus: Most used responses to defense questioning: "I don't remember" and "I just remembered."

I love this comment made today by one of the dads... from WRBC web site

Update 10:25am

Witness says didn't mention Tonya Craft being with woman or watching porn when he gave original statement. Says he remembered during trial.

How much is going to be "remembered" during this joke of a trial?? I am just utterly astounded by it all

Additionally, the father just admitted to using in/laws address to get into school system (Chickamauga). There is a consistent pattern of lying and inconsistency regarding all of the witness.

This case and trial are very disturbing. I am very worried for the defendant since there seems to be no rational oversight of court proceedings by the judge. I can only hope that the jury perceive what seems so obvious to me.

mr. anderson, i just have a question for you... now, i know i am only reading courtroom accounts from channel 3 but it seems to me that the defense attorneys are too laid back. i feel they should be bringing up all the lies and deception and there are so many reasons this trial could be thrown out and all the pergery going on... are the attorneys doing enough??? i know you have more on the inside scoop...MT

Well, I don't have a window to the defense strategy because I have absolutely no contact with anyone in that group. I keep a strict firewall between us because it protects them and me.

First, Demosthenes Lorandos is a pro, a real pro and someone of a stature that has not been seen in a Catoosa County Courtroom, perhaps since Bobby Lee Cook, although their styles are very different. I can assure you, however, that had Ms. Craft had Cook as her counsel, Arnt and Gregor would have been less likely to pull off the stunts they have done -- with House's help -- because the counsel consists mainly of "outsiders."

Second, don't forget that the defense will have a strong parade of witnesses. Don't think for a second that Lorandos is "laid back." He believes firmly in Tonya's innocence and he also understands completely the farce that the prosecution is presenting.

So, I, like you, wait to see what transpires over the next two weeks. However, I am not going to second-guess an attorney like Lorandos.

Never got to see him in action, but have met him and the wheels that turn in that man's head are amazing!!!

Not sure if you noticed one of the other untruths today.

Early in testimony, moron #1 (JH), said that he did not speak to any of the other parents because he was "not welcomed in that circle." Then when the defense mapped out the phone calls, he said he was calling to check on their kids & not to discuss anything else. HMMMMMMMM...

I so hope the jury is paying attention. From what I understand, they were paying close attention yesterday, but haven't heard about today yet. Also, the courtroom was packed after lunch today.

Bobby Lee Cook....genius! Really wish more lawyers could be like him. One of my close friends is the female version of him.

Just wanted to let you know. Tonya's ex-husband didn't use anyone else's address to get the kids in Chickamauga. They only went here when Tonya was working at the school. All teachers children get accepted. So he is lying to get them in somewhere else. Just want everyone to know the fact. A lye is still a lye though

"So he is lying to get them in somewhere else."

If I recall correctly, Ms. Craft's ex-husband, wonderful parent that he is, lives in Tennessee now. That could account for his using a false address to get his kids in a different school. It is a common tactic in Hamilton County if you want to avoid the low performing school you are zoned to. I too thought all along that the use of a false address was to get an ineligible kid into Chickamauga or Gordon Lee but apparently not.
