I got the following from a faithful Cabineteer:
The prosecution already presented its case. The two men, their mother, and Fr Steven Kostoff (OCA) all testified. Storheim presented his case Thursday and Friday, his own testimony and another witness who’s essentially a character witness (unless additional testimony was presented Friday that has not yet made it into the media). The trial will continue until 31 October, when both sides will present their closing arguments.
Guess what… I had a brain fart and forgot that the Crown presented its case. However, all the links in the post yesterday were legit, and my comments still stand, as they’re not dependent on my mistake. Yet, I still fucked up and I apologise to youse guys… I do my best to present not only a well-crafted product, damn it, I want it accurate, too. It’s one of the reasons I appreciate my Cabinet… a single individual can’t do it alone… no way, no how. Be good… this thing has dragged on long enough, hasn’t it? Storheim didn’t take a plea to spare the Church… one wonders what else there is in the woodwork (for if it were isolated, Lyonyo or Bobby would’ve made him walk the plank in an instant)…
Firstly, here are some links on the Storheim trial:
Secondly, this is all the defence presentation… the Crown hasn’t presented its case yet. Don’t forget, the Crown offered Storheim a plea TWICE… that means that they had beaucoup witnesses and strong evidence. Am I catty in saying that oca.org is silent on this? I can see Tosi now… “The trial doesn’t really exist! We say so! Send us your money now!” Do remember what he said when there was the trouble with Piggy Iggy Burdikoff and the missing money… “The records simply don’t exist”. That’s Syosset’s mantra… “It doesn’t exist… it doesn’t matter… send us your money, you bastards, we gotta pay the freight to move in the right social circles”. I somehow think that they’re not going to get away with it this time. Syosset’s luck just ran out, I think…
Oh, one last thing… withhold your assessments until the trial’s over… that’ll put a fire under their arse, won’t it?
