PORTER’S ATTORNEY’S FIRED BACK, STATING THAT THE PROSECUTION, IN OFFICER PORTERS FIRST TRIAL ACCUSED HIM OF LYING TWENTY-THREE TIMES. ONE COULD HONESTLY ASK …IF YOU THOUGHT HE WAS LYING, WHY WOULD YOU WANT HIM TO TESTIFY?

ADDITIONALLY, PORTER’S ATTORNEY REQUESTED AND WAS GRANTED A STAY FROM THE MARYLAND COURT OF APPEALS.  THE FULL COURT WILL PROBABLY HEAR THE ARGUMENTS THIS WEEK.

OFFICER PORTER’S JURY COULD NOT REACH A VERDICT.  HIS SECOND TRIAL IS SCHEDULED FOR LATER THIS YEAR.
