http://thebatavian.com/taxonomy/term/408/ en Scott Doll granted motion to obtain untested DNA evidence http://thebatavian.com/howard-owens/scott-doll-granted-motion-obtain-untested-dna-evidence/47444 <p>Prosecutors have 30 days to produce and turn over evidence in the Scott F. Doll murder case that may yield DNA from the Feb. 19, 2009 crime scene, Judge Robert C. Noonan ruled in a decision released this afternoon.</p> <p>Doll&#39;s attorney, Timothy P. Murphy, filed a pair of appeals related to Doll&#39;s 2010 murder conviction, which has him serving a 15-years-to-life prison sentence.</p> <p>While Noonan granted the DNA appeal, he ruled against Doll on his motion that he received inadequate trial counsel.</p> <p>At a hearing earlier this week, ADA William Zickl couldn&#39;t confirm for Noonan whether the evidence that might yield DNA still existed.</p> <p>Noonan ruled the evidence be turned over, &quot;subject to any disagreement as to protocol for the custody and preservation of such evidence, which will then be resolved on application to the Court.&quot;</p> <p>On the representation issue, Murphy argued that attorneys Paul Cambria and Daniel Killelea failed to raise objections to Doll&#39;s transport from Pembroke to the Sheriff&#39;s Office the morning of the murder based on Fourth Amendment provisions.</p> <p>Noonan ruled that the defense attorneys did adequately raise objections and that the appeals process had already upheld decisions to allow evidence gathered during that process -- statements by Doll and his clothing -- to be admitted at trial.</p> <p>Doll was convicted by a jury of beating to death a former business partner and prison guard coworker, Joseph Benaquist.</p> <p>The defense is seeking further DNA testing to establish whether a third person was at the murder scene, which the defense contends, if the DNA testing had been done prior to trial, could have changed the outcome of the case. The prosecution contends the evidence against Doll is so overwhelming that even if a third person&#39;s DNA is found at the scene, Doll would still be found guilty of murder by a jury.</p> <p>UPDATE 3:30 p.m.: We asked Sheriff Gary Maha if the evidence still existed and was secured. His one-word answer: &quot;yes.&quot;</p> http://thebatavian.com/howard-owens/scott-doll-granted-motion-obtain-untested-dna-evidence/47444#comments corfu crime pembroke scott doll Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:28:43 +0000 Howard B.

Noonan this morning in Genesee County Court.</p> <p>Timothy C. Murphy represented Doll and ADA William Zickl&nbsp;represented the people.</p> <p>Murphy&#39;s appeal is based on a few key points:</p> <ul> <li> There was no &quot;emergency doctrine&quot; need to transport Doll from Pembroke to the Sheriff&#39;s Office on Park Road the early morning of Feb. 19, 2009 after Doll was found in blood-covered clothes and blood was found on his vehicle parked at North Lake Road and Main Road. Doll, Murphy argued, was taken into the custody, not just merely held in an attempt to find out if somebody was hurt and in need of help;</li> <li> There was no DNA evidence taken from under the fingernails of the murder victim, Joseph&nbsp;Benaquist. If there had been, it&#39;s possible the presence of a third party at the scene might have been discovered, which could have changed the outcome of the trial;</li> <li> The failure of Doll&#39;s defense attorneys, Paul Cambria and Dan Killelea, to raise these issues at trial constitutes&nbsp;incompetent representation.</li> </ul> <p>Zickl countered:</p> <ul> <li> Doll&#39;s defense had every opportunity to raise these issues and did in fact raise these issues, at the trial level and through the appeals process and they lost on the rulings;</li> <li> The emergency doctrine does apply to the transport of Doll because the emergency continued unabated until the body of Benaquist was discovered;</li> <li> The transport was necessary because investigators felt certain that Doll was covered in human blood and even though they didn&#39;t yet know what happened, it was likely a crime might be discovered and the evidence needed to be secured, rather than letting Doll walk around in 10-degree weather;</li> <li> Because Noonan served as trial judge, he knows Doll received a vigorous, cogent and coherent defense that can hardly be characterized as incompetent;</li> <li> Even if DNA had been collected, and even granting for the sake of argument that a third-party presence might have established, that fact wouldn&#39;t have changed the outcome of the case. The evidence that Doll killed Benaquist is simply overwhelming and conclusive. Where Murphy argued that physical evidence indicates Benaquist was involved in a struggle against attackers, Zickl argued the evidence is clear that Benaquist was ambushed and had little opportunity to defend himself.&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p>Noonan said he should have a written ruling in about a week.</p> http://thebatavian.com/howard-owens/attorneys-argue-appeal-scott-doll-murder-conviction/47403#comments corfu crime pembroke scott doll Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:05:57 +0000 Howard B.
