My son was charged with attempted robbery with a firearm and mask.
The victim said that the suspect was wearing a bandana covering HALF of his face and a hoodie.
She said that she could only see his eyes.
On her 911 call, she said that she would be unable to identify the suspect unless he looked like he then when he attempted to rob her.
The officer on the scene said that the victim said that she would be unable to identify the suspect.
It says it on the original police report.
The state and police connived to drop the mask portion of the charge.
My son’s attorney was only concerned with buddying up with the prosecutor.
The investigating officer gave the victim a photo lineup. She was unable to identify the suspect.
How could she identify the suspect? The lineup was a full face line up. Remember, she said she could only see the eyes.
Three weeks later, she is given another lineup with my son as the only common denominator of the two pictures.
The detective said that the reason that she did a second lineup was because the glasses he wore did not reflect his eyes very well.
Now she says that she is 60% sure it was my son. She said the nose looked familiar.
