However, quite unbelievably, the prosecution put the stepmother on the stand. Yes, read the news accounts here:
Update 9:10amNow, suppose that Ms. Craft had been showering with other little children. Would that not have been entered into evidence as PROOF of intent to molest?
Woman (Henke's wife) says she was in room with her step daughter while a medical exam was performed on her. (Henke had said previously that the woman was not permitted in the building where the exam took place. Hmmm. Someone ain't tellin' the truth.)
Woman says she gave her then six yr old stepdaughter an old razor (without blade) to use in the shower.
Stepmother of one of the alleged victims is on the stand. We won't give her name, to protect alleged victim.
Woman says even after claims of abuse, she continued to shower w/ her stepdaughter (emphasis mine). It was 9 months into Tonya Craft case she stopped.
Woman says child services came to talk to her about bathing with her stepdaughter (one of alleged victims).
Defense now asking questions. State only asked questions for six minutes.
Woman testifies her husband is 15 yrs older than her. She was also Tonya Craft's Sunday School student years ago.
Yet, the state brings up a woman who at very best engaged in truly inappropriate conduct with a young girl. But this is OK with the prosecution and, apparently Judge Brian House.
