    Although I didn’t read all of it, I believe it’s nothing more than a lawyer doing his desperate job. 2 States wrongfully interrogating? More than unlikely.
    Delaying a life sentence while costing the States lawyer fees. Stop playing games, ‘fess up and spare the rest of us.

      The lowest of the low , with no where to go.
      Grasping at straws with a bottom feeder of an attorney wont really help.
      Actually , just the opposite.
      …. Lots more BS before its over for this murdering drug dealer.

        At least he didn’t take an innocent persons life, like that now famous football player did.

    He had the right to remain silent, but not the inclination. (Shrek said it to Donkey, and it seems just as true in this instance.)

      Tah dah! Good one, I like Shrek quotes. Had the right to remain silent, but not enough brains to keep his mouth shut…

    Dang, Maine sure has it’s share of J/O appeals. The cops not questioning him with the right shoelaces on has nothing to do with the foolish alibi he’s trying to peddle, seems like the standard TOG (The Other Guy) defense. Are there no more good jailhouse lawyers left? Procedural errors don’t clear the way for anything but a new trial and he’d get the same again. All the babbling in the world — he owed Yaya 5K then he say and he say and they go — won’t erase blood and a chunk of skull from his apartment. Denied! Next.

  • 2 Agencies violating the same protection’s ? Not likely and his lawyer knows it. This is a stall tactic and nothing more than a try at getting what his lawyer knows is evidence that he committed the murder kept out of the jury’s view. Problem is now that the evidence has been mentioned in the press the jury is gonna’ wonder where it is if it’s not presented at trial. People have been convicted for both what’s been presented and what’s been withheld. The Casey Anthony jury is getting that goof shown right now and is gonna make Florida jury’s a lot more focused on both what was, and what was clearly seen by it’s not being presented, and was not shown to them as a cause for decison and verdict. And you can be sure that Connecticut is going to make sure that their people didn’t screw up. No one likes their dirty laundry shown out in public.

    Perdomo should be described as a drug dealer. Having a job as a fireman has nothing to do with why he was killed

      I wouldn’t say that too loudly….even though everything has come out, sometimes it’s hard for people to accept cold hard facts like that..

    Why is it these knuckleheads who rob people of their absolute and inarguable constitutional right to remain alive always try to haplessly stand on their own constitutional rights in an attempt to get away with these felonies and capital crimes? It leades me to believe that both they and their defense attorneys are menaces to public safety.

    I’ll admit all my legal knowledge comes from Law and Order, but don’t the police make suspects sign a waiver when they waive their rights?

    He likes to talk. This is good because we like to listen. How did his girlfriend walk away without an arrest?
