Thanks as always for your blogs, and your personal emails!!! I will try to answer a few questions that have been raised. First, it is an automatic thing in Alaska that when a new trial is granted, it goes before the original judge, unless he excuses himself from the case. We have heard no word on that. We are preparing for the bail hearing and I don't know the exact date. I understand that the ADN website has a huge comment section and that many residents of Alaska are outraged. I don't always read those as you can understand that some are negative and they usually don't have their facts straight, but it still upsets me. I have not heard anything about asking for a change of venue. Personally, I don't know that would help our case since most of the world has heard about it! I promise to keep this blog updated and to answer all your personal emails. I did talk to Mechele early this evening and she is very excited about getting out on bond and being able to personally write on the blog. I encourage any of you that want to express your opinions to write to the DA and Atty Gen. (their numbers and fax are in my previous post) Also, post your comments on the ADN website.Some of you have written to the various politicians and believe me, they are appreciated. We have to do our best to make sure we get the media on our side and we are working with a PR person to help us with that. I will update as soon as I know more. Hugs out to all of you and thanks for your support!!!
