My brother's trial lasted 4 days. Total. The prosecution got 3 days of testimony and the defense got 3hrs. The rest of the time was when the jury was out. It was a fiasco! On the first day, I was called down by judge Connelly Graham, and then taken into her chambers and cursed out for taking notes in her courtroom. I couldn't believe this woman, judge or not, was sitting here cussing me out! According to the record, some one from the other side told the baliff that I was taking notes then showing them outside the courtroom at breaks. Which was totally a lie. I left the notebook in the courtroom every time I exited. Sitting right there on the bench where I sat for the entire trial. So I was basically cussed out for no reason. Then, when the witnesses for the prosecution would get on the stand, 'The Man' always started out with the same line of questioning. (All of the witnesses were the accuser's brother's and sister's and his mother) The questioning began with...."Now, you are a half sister to the defendent?" or "Now you are a half brother to the defendent?" There are 7 of them, and every two have a different father, so 'the man' felt it necessary to go over who was who for each witness. The odd thing, other than that, was when the oldest sister got on the stand, 'the man' began his questioning and she resoponded by saying " yes, they told me you were asking these questions about us and who our dads are." But judge connely graham did not take her into chambers for talking outside the courtroom and she was a witness. I was not.
Another very strange thing but we have the documents, and they are public record as well. The accuser's mother went to 2 different Ala. Counties first. These detectives simply told these people, 'unless you have some sort of witness to something, this is just his word against his.' They were told this by 2 counties in Ala. which is the state they ALL lived in. But somehow when they went to Dade Co. there was a witness to something happening!! And the something she described happened a yr. prior to the allegations but she never told a soul for that whole year. Now, are you kidden me??? And Dade co. got thier jurisdiction by saying that Brad was 'driving through thier county when he committed his crime.' IN THE CAR!!!!! Driving, according to testimony, not stopping for any reason whatsoever!!! And ALL of the testimony, except for the incident driving through dade county was from Ala. also. The judge allowed all of it. We obviously did not have a very smart lawyer. That was our biggest mistake. We did not take it seriously enough and our atty certainly didn't. It is my opinion, that hindsight tells me our atty was more on thier side than my brother's. Money talks!!!! By the way, it is also public record that our atty was MARTY LEVITT of LEVITT&LEVITT right here in good ol Chattanooga, Tn. But we learned shortly after my brother's trial that Mr. Marty Levitt opened an office in Dade Co. Thought that was kinda interesting as well. My brother was railroaded in so so many different ways, by many different ppl. It still just makes me think we are in a dream and this could never happen really. But it did and it is. And it is, by far, the hardest thing that our family has ever been through.
And then one of the hardest things for Brad Wade is, that he KNOWS without a shadow of a doubt, that his young son has been and probably still is being molested. And posting all of this stuff will just give them time to work on the poor kid. And make sure he does not tell, but I want him pulled out and interviewed by a real proffesional. Not one of these 'six week course' ppl who are at the DFCS and CAC from that district!!!! Someone besides me has to make a formal complaint for them to pull my poor nephew out and question him. I just pray that someone maybe at his school or church, might see what has really happened and help the child. I have video and written transcripts to prove what I am saying is the truth. If there is anyone out there who knows my nephew and can help him, please, can't you just read some of the things that were kept from the jury. We have proof Brad Wade is innocent!!!! I can show YOU anything you want to see.!!!! Anything that is public record already that is. Ok, I will tell more tomorrow. Hopefully our current atty will comment soon!!!!!
