As an observer at the preliminary examinations one couldn’t help but notice a few things absent from the discussion. When you read the District Attorney’s list of items discovered on the Abbey property and compare it to the charges, a few details seem to be missing. D.A. Harris uses the AR-15 as a contributing part of a child endangerment, but he fails to mention that it had been illegally altered from its manufactured state and was fully automatic. And he never reveals where the illegal ‘sawed-off’’ shotgun was located. Was it the shotgun found in the couch also used to support the endangerment charge?
And maybe more importantly why were illegally altered (fully automated AR-15 and sawed off shotgun) gun ownership charges NOT filed since each of these is a felony count? And since murder charges were filed, why is it gun enhancement charges weren’t, since everyone else charged with murder while using a gun, has had them added?
Maybe today will provide some answers. The hearing should be interesting.
We’ll be back with the happenings from court this afternoon.
