Once AGAIN, danny lee hill, rears his ugliness, causing more pain, more hell on Raymond Fif'e's family and friends. Once again two do-badders, this time: Attorneys Sarah Kostick of Tucson, Ariz., and Vicki Ruth Adams Werneke of the U.S. Public Defender’s Office in Cleveland, filed a 400-page request in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court in 2014 seeking permission to ask for a new trial.
In fairness, I just called Atty Kostick, and asked her " can you tell me your motivation for defending danny lee hill?" "I will not comment, you'll have to get your information from the filing..." Please understand, I believe that everyone charged of a crime should have adequate defense counsel( I know, only TOO well, how it feels to have the full power of the federal government coming at you, well, me....) . We have seen numerous people, wrongly convicted, released years later. This is why I am opposed to putting people to death, although, I do believe we should allow those, w/o the possibility of parole, to end their own lives.
danny lee hill is NOT one of those wrongly convicted. I've spoken with a number of people close to the case.
Their juvenile offenses are glossed over. They are allowed to plea -- bargain. They are put on probation. When they do receive prison terms, they are paroled early. "Most return to their predatory ways," says Capt. Thomas Chronin of the Chicago Police Department, a noted expert on criminal psychology. "Often, theirbehavior escalates in frequency and brutality."
The justice system has failed to come to grips with the problem. A study commissioned by Utah juvenile -- court executives explained that many sexual offenses by youths went unreported, or charges were dropped, redefined as normal "experimentation."
Teenagers Timothy Anthony Combs and Danny Lee Hill were well known to authorities in Warren, Ohio. Combs, who had and extensive arrest record, had been convicted for gross sexual imposition on another boy. Hill had been given a "permanent commitment" to juvenile facilities after raping two women at knifepoint, during which he threatened to kill his victims and rape one woman's three-year-old daughter. While incarcerated, Hill sexually molested a boy and threatened other boys with violence. Nevertheless, he was released after only a year.
On September 10, 1985, 12-year-old Raymond Fife of Warren, Ohio was biking to a Boy Scouts meeting. He never made it. Hill and Combs raped, beat and tortured Raymond. After choking him with his clothes, they impaled the unconscious boy with a stick. Then they set him on fire.
Raymond, who was found by his father, Isaac, never regained consciousness and died two days later. The horrors of that evening still haunt Isaac. "I can't tell you the hell he has had to live with, seeing that picture in his mind," says his wife, Miriam.
I'll spare you additional details, details that the Fife's were NOT spared,...a hell that Raymond Fife was NOT spared.
danny lee hill, the MONSTER's lawyers, are going for a new trial. The grounds for the request were that bite-mark evidence used at Hill’s trial has been deemed in recent years unreliable by the National Academies of Sciences .
Last year, the Ohio Attorney General's Office said: ...no valid claim relating to bite-mark evidence would give the circuit court reason to allow lawyers to be hired to seek a new trial.
The attorney general’s office says any suggestion by Hill’s attorneys that it has any newly discovered evidence relating to bite marks is a “gross distortion of the role the bite-mark evidence played at his trial.”
danny lee hill made admissions to his uncle, Morris Hill, a respected Warren police detective.
Since I cannot get a comment from Atty Kostick, as to why she's spending so many hours on this MONSTER, I'm, left to believe this is just an intentional clogging up, a constipating of the criminal justice digestive tract, for...well, for self-aggrandizement at the expense of their, the defense lawyers, and the MONSTER danny lee hill's souls.
There's SO MUCH injustice....the only injustice regarding this, is the re-victimization of the family and friends of Raymond Fife
