We are coming up quickly on the 1 year anniversary of Kate’s arrest. And if what I have heard is correct we are looking at about 9 weeks until Kate’s trial begins.
This will be a long time coming. I am hoping the state has gotten all their ducks in a row and justice is finally done for these babies. I know these types of cases are hard to “prove.” I am just hoping if nothing else they will have enough on her that they can prove, that will keep her away for a very long time.
I’m hoping the media will cover the trial and there will be someone available that can share court information that can be shared here as the trial takes place.
Slowly but surely it will be here….
I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season.
Not much has happened as far as Kate is concerned. It has been so quiet. I have although heard that court should begin the end of May. So we have another 4 months before we may hear anything.
I’m hoping we will get updates as court happens and there will be people in the court room who will share the info they are hearing.
It sure is a long year coming. I just hope the justice system does what is right. I am also hoping since it has taken a year The state will have a solid case.
I honestly don’t know what else to title this post. I am in utter shock. I knew Kate was to be in court on Thursday October 2, with Judge Angel Lopez. That hearing was cancelled and Kate was in court Friday October 3, with Judge Eric Bloch. Over the weekend upon checking the site
I found that all charges said $0 bail except one that read $5,000. All charges also stated unscented.
Today I returned to the Inmate Status page and found all charges to say $0 and all status’ said released.
I then went looking and found this article via The Oregon Live
Long story short Friday Kate’s bail was reduced to $5,000 and she bonded out.
For whatever reason the court date that was set for today October 2, 2014 ended up not happening.
There is a new court date for tomorrow October 3, 2014. It is also listed as a “hearing” just like the last one. She is actually on tomorrows docket also. I’m not sure on some of the terms. It does look like it is not a closed case. The event type is listed as HGCU, I am not sure what that means. There is also a LL listed under VA also not sure what that means. Very few people have anything listed under VA.
Here are the links for the docket and the listing for a date and screenshots also.
The public access to court dates. This follows the same procedure listed in the previous post. https://publicaccess.courts.oregon.gov/PublicAccess/Search.aspx?ID=900&NodeID=104100%2c104210%2c104215%2c104220%2c104225%2c104310%2c104320%2c104330%2c104410%2c104420%2c104430%2c104440&NodeDesc=Multnomah
The court docket/appearance listing. She is on page 4. http://mcda.us/Court_Appearance_List.pdf
Per a comment I received on the last post, no I have not given up on following the case. There is just really nothing to post. We are at the mercy of the courts at this point. There have been a couple of court dates but those court dates have all had the type of case being “call” attached to them.
There was a court date yesterday that was another “call.”
The latest update to the court system site says she will have court on October 2, 2014 and it is listed as of right now as “hearing.”
Unfortunately I am not familiar with the terms associated with court nor am I familiar with how to find results of hearings or anything of that nature. I just look for public records and go with what I find.
This is the site where you can find future court dates. http://courts.oregon.gov/OJD/OnlineServices/calendars/pages/index.aspx
Go to the Oregon e-court circuit calendars….
The county is Multnomah…..
Case number is…..140331212
And you have to change the *on or before date to within 90 days*
I am also attaching a screenshot of the page.
As soon as I get any new information I will definitely update.
Actually there is nothing to update. Not sure when Kate’s next court date will be or anything else going on.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t forgotten about the blog just nothing to update on. When updates do start rolling in I will update the blog.
I am going to work on updating about the bail hearing as I forgot to do that.
OregonLive and a couple other news outlets have published articles on Dr. Monica Webhy’s connection to the Parker case.
According to Kate’s writings, Dr. Webhy performed the operations related to these counts in the indictment, totaling 13 in all:
- Count 1
- Count 3
- Count 4
- Count 5
- Count 6
- Count 7
- Count 8
- Count 15
- Count 16
- Count 23
- Count 24
- Count 25
- Count 26
Political analysts believe the Parker case could pose a serious problem for Dr. Webhy’s campaign, as she has been using her medical background to gain credibility among voters.
Pacific University government and elections professor Jim Moore told OregonLive that Dr. Webhy’s link to the Parker case, “raises questions about her judgment, and for the last 25 years voters have said judgment is very important…And remember, she’s not very well known in this state. She’s staking her whole campaign on her expertise in health care and her competence. So this is going to raise questions about the center of who she says she is…Because of the nature of these kinds of things, if she wins the primary, this is going to stretch out during the entire campaign.”
Notably, Kate’s trial is scheduled to begin on May 19, the day before the primary. But one of the prosecutors has said publicly that the trial date is expected to be pushed back.
