A criminal case of this type involves a lot of paper shuffling and filings with the Court as the case might proceed and ultimately reach the trial stage. One of the things I have noticed is that Jesse Boyd and his people have refused to make public the details of what is going on; while continuing to whine as if they do not know what is going on.

In this article, I will try to archive some of the substantive material filed with the Court.

The most recently filed document, and most important in my opinion, is the State’s response to Jesse’s amended motion to dismiss. The amended motion and the State’s reply can be found at the following links:

Amended Motion to Dismiss

State Response to Amended Motion to Dismiss

Jesse Boyd’s position as often stated via social media, is reflected in his following recently posted photograph below. We will continue to watch to see how that position holds up for him and, more importantly, for the 3 co-defendants; Eric Trent, Carter Phillips, and Bethany Boyd.

The State’s First Motion in Limine can be found at:

The State’s Second Motion in Limine can be found at:

The State’s Third Motion in Limine can be found at:

The State filed notice that John Lamb might be called as a witness. John Lamb boasted of the notice and bragged about his value as a witness in this and other cases. As far as I know, however, the actual State notice was never broadcast. The notice includes a warning that Lamb and Boyd should not be fraternizing lest Boyd be thrown back in jail.
