Johannes Mehserle Trial Tactics!
February 18, 2010
The former Bay Area Rapid Transit officer charged in the killing of an unarmed man on an Oakland train station platform is scheduled to make his second appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Johannes Mehserle is scheduled to appear in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday morning. His lawyer has said he will ask a judge to reduce Mehserle's $3 million bail and remove Alameda County prosecutors from the case.
An Alameda County judge ruled in October that Mehserle's trial be moved out of Oakland because of excessive media coverage and racial tensions.
Mehserle is charged with the murder of Oscar Grant on a BART station platform on New Year's Day 2009. He has pleaded not guilty in the case.
Oscar Grant, III (pictured left) was murdered by B.A.R.T. Police Officer Johannes Mehserle on January 1, 2009. Mr. Grant was shot in the back, while lying face down on the ground, under the control and authority of Mehserle and his cohorts of the B.A.R.T. Police Department. (See video below.)
Johannes Mehserle, 27 (pictured right) B.A.R.T. Police Officer who shot and killed Oscar Grant, III on January 1, 2009, making his first court appearance on January 14, 2009. Mehserle waived extradition, and should soon arrive back in California to face criminal charges.
Johannes Mehserle, is the former BART police officer accused of shooting and killing an unarmed man New Year's Day. He was arrested at 6:20 p.m. [January 13, 2009] on a murder charge in Nevada, officials confirmed.
The Jan. 1, 2009 Murder
Witnesses say Mehserle, 27, killed Oscar Grant III, 22, at an Oakland BART station in the early morning of Jan. 1, in a shooting that prompted massive protests after videos of the incident surfaced and were shown on television and on the Web (See video above).
Mehserle refused to be interviewed by either BART investigators or [The Alameda County District Attorney's] office following the incident. Videos appear to show him shooting Grant as the 22-year-old was facedown on the ground at the Fruitvale BART station. Mehserle's resignation last week took away BART's best chance at getting a statement from him because Mehserle could no longer be fired for remaining silent.
Mehserle had been moving from place to place in recent days as he faced numerous death threats. He was reportedly arrested without incident. Before his arrest, Mehserle was believed to be in the Zephyr Cove area of Lake Tahoe, Nev. Douglas County, authorities said. Oakland Police advised them an arrest warrant for homicide from the Alameda County Superior Court was pending against the former officer.
Mehserle's Extradition Hearing
Alameda Country District Attorney Tom Orloff said he would not speculate on whether the charge would end up being first-degree murder or second-degree murder.
"At this point, what I feel the evidence indicates, is an unlawful killing done by an intentional act and from the evidence we have there's nothing that would mitigate that to something lower than a murder," Orloff said at a news conference announcing the charge.
