Gateway murder trial

Jim Peters recalled – for defense

leave a comment »

Jim Peters, who hired Fred at Sunsports, has been called as the defense’s first witness.

Peters looking at Cooper’s timecard for December 2005 (late in the month).

Timesheet says Cooper worked from 7:36 a.m. and didn’t take a lunch and left at 5:53 in the afternoon.

(On December 23, Lynne Craven says a man matching Cooper’s description asked for the gate code of Cypress Pointe in Gateway)

Peters is now looking at Cooper’s helmet. And Peters brought a helmet bag with him and just showed it to the jury.

Prosecution now cross examining.

The testimony is surounding the helmet bag – and whether clothing and a jacket would fit inside (Peters said they would).

On December 27th – Cooper clocked out at 2:53 p.m.

On December 29th – he clocked in at 7:46. He punched out at 9:08 and 5:29 p.m. (No reflection showing he punched out around 3 pm on the 29th)

(Defense is trying to say Fred’s timesheet proves he didn’t leave on the 23rd to go to Gateway to get the gate code to Cypress Pointe)

Timesheet doesn’t reflect times they left to test-ride a motorcycle.

Peters confirms if Cooper didn’t punch out, it doesn’t mean he didn’t actually leave for lunch.

Defense redirecting

On December 29th, punched in at 8 a.m., out at 2:50, in at 3:50 and out at 5:29 p.m.

He has been excused.
