More testimony from the trial of Tobin Kerns on the trial’s final day.
Here’s an item I didn’t know until today…
Kerns testified that he and Nee had gotten into a scuffle over Kerns’ girlfriend four days before Nee went to police and blamed Kerns for devising the plot.
To me, that shows me just one more reason as to why Joe Nee would try to implicate Tobin. Besides deflecting blame from himself Tobin’s arrest and possible incarceration would be Joe Nee’s revenge.
And it sounds like there will be more delays as far as the verdict is concerned…
Coffin said he does not know when he will issue a verdict in the case. Coffin is waiting for a ruling from the state Supreme Judicial Court on whether the law on threats requires that a defendant communicate the threat directly to an intended victim or whether the threat can also be communicated indirectly.
State prosecutors have asked the high court for clarification on the law.
Keep your fingers crossed that Judge Coffin makes the right decision.
