The Trench Reynolds Report

All Crime Is Personal

Taped theft confession by teen is ruled inadmissible:

As I mentioned yesterday the taped confession of Andrew Osantowski admitting he broke into a gun shop could possibly be thrown out. Macomb County Circuit Judge Matthew Switalski ruled that the tape was, in fact, inadmissible…

But Macomb County Circuit Judge Matthew Switalski ruled that Osantowski’s admission to stealing several weapons from a Clinton Township gun shop is inadmissible because he made the statements only after he was promised leniency if he cooperated with the investigation.

But all is not lost…

Prosecutors will still be able to use some of the Sept. 16 interview, in which 17-year-old Andrew Osantowski admitted to writing messages in online chat rooms that police believe were threats to kill a police officer, family members and his three cats.

And like I said yesterday, Andrew Osantowski documented a lot of his criminal activity online. I think there is more than enough evidence to convict. But that’s just my opinion.
