I will post further updates on the James Ray Trial (set to begin on 16 Feb 2011) here for now. (For more background see here.) Scroll down for the first post covering general information and links to witness statements and prosecution documents is under 16 November.
(Please note, I’m posting from Europe, so I only have access to internet resources. Feel free to add any links in the comments.)
James Ray Trial: Pre-Trial Hearings Updates
March 3 2011 Evidence regarding earlier sweat lodges will be allowed under certain conditions. Admissibility will be decided case by case, so to speak. That means that Ray’s serial recklessness during previous groups and sweat lodges will be included to a considerable degree, as evidence.
I’ll post more about the trial as it unfolds – bit hard to stay current from here in Germany. Excellent up to date blog coverage on Salty Droid’s James Ray Trial Updates page, with extensive background info.
Here’s my take on Ray’s overall defense strategy: James Ray’s Defense: Nothing But Objections.
