The Silence of the Lawyers?

I've already alluded to this in yesterday's post, but wanted to discuss my personal thoughts a little further:

Harlow's attorneys have yet to file any motions for discovery, bill of particulars, etc., while Joe's counsel has already requested and won a motion for an extra 30 days to file... and they're currently going through the standard filing process.

Meanwhile... Harlow's defense appears to have missed the deadline for filing a request for the bill of particulars ( this must be done within 7 days from the formal arraignment ), and they have yet to file a motion for pretrial discovery. Is someone asleep at the wheel?

In regards to the rumors of a possible plea by Cuadra, I'll quote a response I received today from a reliable source that's familiar with the case:

"It actually would not surprise me at all. If you follow the affidavit, it kind of hinted the prosecution's theory of the crime was Kerekes allegedly did the stabbing, slashing, etc...

If that is what they're going for, they need somebody to put the knife in his hand. The only other person who was allegedly there is Cuadra

Would Harlow Cuadra actually abandoned boyfriend and co-defendant Joseph Kerekes to his own fate? Guess we'll just have to wait and see what the actual truth tells us.
