Reasonable doubtcited by judge;civil lawsuit up next
By LOU CHIBBARO JR.lchibbaro@washblade.com
D.C. Superior Court JudgeLynn Leibovitz found three gaymen charged with obstructing justice in the murder of attorneyRobert Wone not guilty of allcounts against them Tuesday.Leibovitz, who read her lengthydecision in the case aloud to apacked courtroom, said that whileshe felt there was significant evi-dence implicating the defendantsJoseph Price, Victor Zaborsky andDylan Ward, there continued toexist a reasonable doubt on allcharges against them.“It is very probable that thegovernment’s theory is correct,that even if the defendants didnot participate in the murder,some or all of them knew enoughabout the circumstances of it toprovide helpful information to lawenforcement and have chosen towithhold that information for rea-sons of their own,” she said.“Nevertheless, after lengthyanalysis of the evidence, I concludethat the government has failed toprove beyond a reasonable doubtthe essential elements of obstruc-tion of justice as to Mr. Price, Mr.Zaborsky or Mr. Ward,” she said.She said prosecutors similarlyfailed to prove beyond a reasonabledoubt that the three defendantsengaged in a conspiracy to obstruct justice or evidence tampering.The decision, which tookmore than an hour for Leibovitzto recite, did not disclose the ver-dict until late in its reading.
