Danny Brown: "little Kids do lie," another "Must Read" from Jeff Gamso from "Gamso for the defence: commentaries of an Ohio criminal defence lawyer."

POST: "Little kids do lie," published by blogger Jeff Gamso on his Blog "Gamso for the defence: commentaries of an Ohio  criminal defence lawyer," on January 3, 2013.

GIST: "The only witness to Bobbie Russell's murder, assuming he actually saw it, was her then-six year-old son Jeffery.  Jeffery said Danny did it.  Jeffery also said he saw things that would have been physically impossible for him to see.  But when an investigator went to tell Jeffery about the DNA, the young man (he was 25 or 26 by then) again said that Danny did it.  So Julie Bates figured that it was so.  After all, she said, mouthing one of the stupidest things anyone has ever said,"I don't think little kids lie." And though she agreed to cutting Danny loose and dismissing the charges against him (without prejudice so she could refile them when the DNA morphed into Danny's or something), she maintains that he killed Bobbie Russell.  Because kids don't lie. Actually, I don't think Jeffery did lie.  I think he was mistaken.  And now he has a false memory.  It happens.  Way too much.
But little kids?  That thing about them not lying?  As I said, one of the stupidest things anyone has ever said.  Little kids lie all the time. "
