Mike Goodwin Denied Bail
At today's hearing, the judge, once again, denied bail for Goodwin because he is charged with a capital crime.
The next hearing for Mike is January 10th, 2006. This is the culmination, hopefully, of a motion filed by the defense on March 17th, 2005. In light of the extensive evidence of previous government and law enforcement misconduct in this case, we do expect the court to rule more favorably for the defense at the January hearing. On or within a short time of this date, Detective Mark Lillienfeld, lead investigator, will be asked to testify and explain the massive misconduct allegations made against him by the defense.
No trial date has been set but, depending on the January 10th outcome, it is anticipated that a date may be set in March.
Mike would like to take this opportunity to express his heartfelt thanks to the large number of you who wrote letters to the judge for this hearing. Mike was visibly moved by the number and content of the letters. Thank you all so much.
