Kobes Case Covered - The Kobe Bryant Case and Kobe's Accuser!
think it wasn't about the money?
Lawyers for the 21-year-old Eagle woman had asked Colorado U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch to let her remain anonymous. They said she had received death threats following her highly-publicized claim that she was sexually assaulted by the Los Angeles Lakers basketball star.
Old Case History:
Kobe Bryant Defense Team
Gets Their Way
Should Kate Faber's Past Activities be allowed to be used in Kobe's defense - we may get a judge's ruling on this today... Only our opinion here, but if there is any truth to the accusations that Kate is promiscuous, we say yes. We also believe that any common man or juror may feel the same way.
Furthermore, they were reported to have said it would be inappropriate to comment about any future sponsorship relationship associated with Kobe Bryant.
Kobe's weekend "fling" is turning out to be ONE EXPENSIVE little date!
10/20 5:07 Katelyn Faber / Kobe Bryant Case... It goes to TRIAL says the Colorado judge!
Katelyn Faber / Kobe Bryant Case expected to be held over for trial. BUT, remember that does not mean there HAS to be one! There is still room for Katelyn Faber to propose out-of-court settlement even if the case is held over for trial. Katelyn Faber has way too many options at this point -- Kobe Bryant has none.
Katelyn Faber could propose an out-of-court settlement (which Kobe would have to consider so he can get his basketball life back on tract); OR, Kately Faber can see a trial through and then file a civil suit against Kobe Bryant after the criminal trial completes.
10/16 - Kobe Bryant trial is sure to happen.. At least that's the way we see it. As poor as the job of the investigators was and as weak as the prosecution atty appears to be to us, the public outcry would be enormous if this case did not make it to trial. It's VERY doubtful the judge will rule a trial is not in order.
The Kobe Bryant trial is looking more and more like a O.J. rerun. Evidence is there but investigation is somewhat botched; and, a fight between defense and prosecution like a boxing match between a heavyweight champion and a and a lightweight contender! Does this Kobe Trial sound like O.J. all over again? Does to us...
10/11 - Kobe Bryant trial is slow in coming. Prelims may finish next week. Then we start talking about the trial -- if the judge deems trial is in order.
9/18 - In relation to Kobe's trial, it was reported that a 31 year old bodybuilder named Patrick Graber of El Segundo, California sent a letter to the Director Of Security for Kobe Bryant stating that he could make Kobe's problem go away. Reportedly the suspect said he could make the accuser (Katelyn Faber) not come to court, have a drug overdose, or disappear. Graber was "stung" and arrested by law enforcement officials. Graber's bail is set at one million dollars and face a hearing around September 22nd.
9/10 - Kobe's lawyer issued a subpoena to the judge calling for Kobe's accuser to testify at the hearing. BUT, Katelyn Faber's lawyer says "testifying at the hearing would subject the 19-year-old woman to needless "anxiety and intimidation." and want the subpoena dismissed. Well BOO HOO... If she can't stand the heat, then she should get out of the kitchen!
Not much to report on the
Kobe Bryant trial / case in fact, but there have been some good rumors. MSNBC just reported that they had EXCLUSIVE information
on what happened in the room between Kobe and his accuser (Katelyn
Faber). Seems Katelyn Faber decided to talk a bit . MSNBC reported
that Kobe Bryant had invited the Katelyn Faber to his room. Kobe kissed the accuser
and she wanted to leave, but Kobe blocked the door. During the encounter Kobe grabbed the victims neck with his hand, thus leaving a hand print on her neck. This was the extent of MSNBC's report
Kobe Bryant's first experience in a this new type of "court" (not a basketball court) will be brief -- estimated to take 10-15 minutes in court where Kobe will be advised of the charges against him. Kobe will not have to enter a plea.
It was reported that Kobe Bryant hoped to avoid his initial trial appearance, but the judge in the case (Judge Frederick Gannett) ruled otherwise. His attorneys also lost their battle to keep cameras out of the courtroom.
The next logical step in the process would be a preliminary hearing -- this is when the good stuff (information) goes public.
Kobe's trial is likely to be LONG, so stay tuned for updates!
Maybe Kobe should ask to be traded to the Denver Nuggets to cut down on his travel time?
