TS/LTE - Too many delays

Too many delays
Letters to the Editor

On Monday, Aug. 3, the friends and family of Nicole Lynn Quigley once again attended court for what was supposed to be a pre-trial hearing for Jason Whitmill and Anthony Flores and once again Whitmill's attorney, Glen Brown, paid for by you and me, the taxpayer, succeeded in getting the trial date moved out to the end of September. One of Glen Brown's excuses was that he had more important trials scheduled at the same time as this one. Since I am not allowed to speak during court, my question to Glen Brown is, “More important to whom?” After two judges have reviewed the charges against Whitmill and concurred that second-degree murder will stand against Whitmill for his reckless regard for human life, Mr. Brown has now sent the case off to the California Appellate Court in another one of his tactics to delay the inevitable. How this man sleeps at night is beyond me. In the meantime I will be watching very closely for what trials come up around Sept. 8 that are so important that we need to delay some closure to my family and friends and Whitmill's and Flores' trip to the big house.

umm
It's called "the system".
When you're one the side you currently find yourself, you don't like it.
If you find yourself on the other side, you're thankful for it.
Nothing can bring her back.
You will leave this process unsatisfied, whether due to the length of the trial, the sentence, whatever.
You'll have to find your own closure.

Mr. Quigley, bless you. As for a lawyers are concernd its just business. They are the slime under a bucket of hoggut. These two clowns will be going to the pen in due time.

Since it took alot of fighting to get the Times Standard to print my letter it has been over a month since I sent it in. The appellate court denied Mr. Browns request so now he has sent it off to the California Supreme Court. They also removed the end of my letter where I ask Mr.Brown about his advertising in the Tri City Weekly for wittnesses back on December 9, 2008 the ad had his name and office phone # but his office staff assured me that they did not place the ad and would get back to me soon and let me know how it got there. I am still waiting.

Seriously
It is sad and pathetic that two people can get away with murder, and the loser lawyers can try to act like it isn't important. I'm sure if it was one of their own family members they would be on top of it, getting everything sped up as quickly as possible. Defense lawyers are almost all the same. Putting the slime back on the street so they can do it again. All they care about is making a buck, and assuring themselves of repeat business. My prayers go out to you and your family, I know you never will be completely at peace, but know that your little girl is with the other angels in Heaven.

Mr. Quigley, please accept the sincere condolences of myself and my family and our continued good wishes for the recovery of your wife. The first post and the behavior of the DA and his office are certaintly indicative of the depravity and contempt which is becoming increasing prevelant in this county. Mr. Miller seems to be intent on perpetuating the stereotype of self-aggrandizing indivduals who use the "law" for thier own ends, as opposed to the greater good.
That the scum Mr. Whitmill and his equally repugnant co-horts were on the highway driving cars instead of incarcerated is a question best asked of our Chief Law Enforcement, Mr. Gallegos. But, it is all too clear where the priorities of our marijuana funded DA lie, and I am so very sorry that it is not on the side of justice.

Please know, Mr. Quigley that you are in the thoughts and prayers of this Humboldt County Family.
