Another postponement in Rossy trial

The embezzlement trial of Dawndee Rossy was scheduled to resume April 22 in Independence but has been postponed, again. No date has been set.

Appointed Judge Philip Argento has been reviewing the defense’s motion to exclude evidence presented during the bench trial as well as District Attorney Thomas Hardy’s response during the last month. According to Hardy, Argento needs more time to determine his ruling. There was more than 500 pieces of evidence in what Hardy has described as a complex trial.

Rossy was arrested on 44 felony charges April 11, 2013. The primary charge is embezzlement of $1.5 million from Inyo County Department of Health and Human Services where Rossy was employed.

    Any word on what’s happening with this trial? Seems crazy that this has dragged on this long.

    I think what’s most important is that they get it right, not that they do it quickly.

    It’s been a joke for a long time…”What do you call 100 lawyers on the bottom of the ocean” ?
    A good start (Satire…not to be taken seriously)

    Sounds to me like the D.A.’s evidence is shaky at best. Not only that, the D.A. also had one of their material witnesses take the 5th. Usually a witness for the prosecution is suppose to help them.

    How could the D.A. not know that one of there witnesses would not testify?

    More questions than answers will come from the conclusion of this I’m afraid.

    In my personal opinion, our justice system is becoming a joke.
