Rovaan, Charlie, Miss Marple,
Thank you my learned friends. Obviously I didn't know what you knew about the cop. But, as Charlie suggested, the result was the same as it would have been if Jones had spontaneously combusted on the 13th.
Even now, when I can punch in the officer's name and do a search through all of the transcripts and sidebars, all I can find is the sidebar buried in the first morning of Riske's testimony on 2/ 9/'95. All it says is that Jones contacted Clark when Schwab testified in the criminal trial the day before, and wrote a report that Clark, in turn, says that she faxed to Cochran the same day. Cochran says he never saw the fax.
Clark made a big production about being delighted to get the report and asking if she could put Jones on the stand after she finished with Riske. Cochran's only response to reading Marcia's copy of Jones' proposed testimony was that he was confused by Jones' absurd assertion that he only now realized he was an important witness in the O.J. Simpson case. Marcia asked for her copy back and that was the end of it.
Here is what you will find between the end of Riske's testimony and the introduction of the next witnesses:
THE COURT: ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT. PEOPLE'S NEXT WITNESS.
MS. CLARK: MAY I HAVE A MOMENT, YOUR HONOR?
THE COURT: CERTAINLY. HOW ABOUT IF WE GET THE WITNESS ON HIS OR HER WAY THOUGH?
MS. CLARK: HE'S DOWN.
THE COURT: ALL RIGHT.
MS. CLARK: YOUR HONOR, PEOPLE CALL DETECTIVE ROSSI.
