THE COURT:

Thank you.

We're getting ready

to call back the jury unless there's anything that needs to be brought up. MS. PARKER: Your Honor, this morning,

Mr. Duma provided to the government a copy of a recorded -- a telephone call that Mrs. Neighbors had with the government's next witness. Mr. Duma I know was

not aware of the existence of that recording until yesterday afternoon, and he did appropriately make it available for our review this morning. We have no

objection in this instance if he wants to enter the recording and play it, but I would make a motion on behalf of the government, basically, if Mrs. Neighbors has any more of these undisclosed kinds of tape recordings, that they be denied as evidence in this case for failure to follow the notice rules and to provide the government with copies of them. If we have to stop

and do this with every witness or with three or four more witnesses, it's going to prolong this trial another day or day and a half. So, we just make the motion that

any late disclosures disqualify the evidence. THE COURT: MR. DUMA: counsel has said. Mr. Duma? Your Honor, I appreciate what

I have given to the government the

only other potential document that might come in as an

exhibit that I had not previously identified in my exhibit list. To my knowledge, and I will state that

I've discussed this with my client, we have nothing else that we're going to offer in impeachment -- in the way of impeachment other than what I have provided the government. Now, if something out of the ordinary

occurs, then we'll take that up at the bench, but I think that we've got this problem solved. MS. PARKER: And Mr. Duma has provided us

with two documents, and we have no objections to the defendant using that I believe in cross-examination of one of the witnesses. But other than that, we would

object to any other late disclosures. MR. DUMA: And Judge, the only other thing

I'll say, this will push us back about 15 minutes, but I think because of the importance of this particular issue to my client, I think I will, if the government doesn't have an objection, just play this phone recording that Miss Neighbors had with this -- with this witness, for what it's worth. MS. PARKER: And Your Honor, we don't have

any objection to the playing of the recording, but some of the statements on there are self-serving by Miss Neighbors and have really nothing to do with impeaching this witness. What Mr. Neighbors knew, what

Mrs. Neighbors knew that she's imparting to this witness in the phone call would have no bearing on any kind of impeachment or cross-examination. So, we would just

request that the portion that you play be limited to that portion which you feel is impeachment, which I think is the first part of it. MR. DUMA: That's going to be almost

impossible for me to do, 'cause I -- I think -- I mean, just because I really have had relatively recent exposure to it. I -- if the government feels

comfortable in having their technical people stop it at an appropriate time, but I think that -- that -- if we're not going to play at all, then let's just not play any of it, because I don't -- I don't have it transcribed, I don't have a way to -- to -- to do that on a short notice. So, if the government -- I thought

Miss Parker said she wasn't opposed to having it played. I can't redact it at this late date, so I'll just not play it at all if the government has the objection. MS. PARKER: Well, we object, as I said, to

the part that basically tells her story of the shoes without opening her up to cross-examination on it, and this witness has no idea what happened between Mr. Neighbors and the person who sold him the shoes. So, there's no way it can impeach his testimony, and I

think the portion that you -- the defendant believes is the most telling is the one where he says he got two cartons of shoes back, when in fact the police report says there were 12 cartons returned, and once we get past that, I don't think there is any other portion of that tape-recording that is anything other than self-serving. MR. DUMA: I would agree, and as long as the

government is responsible for stopping it after that with their technical people, because I don't have the -I'm not set up to play it. MS. PARKER: five minutes. MR. DUMA: THE COURT: Thank you. I mean -Let me -- let me It's relatively short.

and then get back to the late disclosure of this evidence. In regards to the playing of the CD, for our

record, what would you mark that as, Defense Exhibit -MR. DUMA: THE COURT: It would be Defense Exhibit 1. Defense Exhibit Number 1 -- I

think we say 401, don't we, Jennifer? MS. WALTON: Yes.

for clarification which would be brought in with that impeachment argument, what I would first suggest is that the witness -- he's in the courtroom. he's in the courtroom? MS. PARKER: Do you mind if

leave the courtroom for a second. MS. PARKER: THE COURT: All right. Sorry, sir. If it's being used

for impeachment, possibly even clarification, it's almost -- if it's clarification, almost something to refresh his memory, but for impeachment, what the court believe -- would believe would be proper would be for counsel to ask him specifically, first, on the witness stand, did he say whatever you think he said on that CD. If he in fact does acknowledge that was said, then to the court, that would eliminate the necessity of having to play that for impeachment purposes. If he denies it

or if he doesn't recall, then at that point, I'd be more inclined to let that be played at that point. In the

manner in which it's to be played, I don't know if we're set up to actually have it stop, start, stop, start, for the jury's benefit. I think if there's no objection

from the government, which there is partly, but we just play that initial portion, and if anything, the parties can ask for possibly a limiting instruction, and that's also what Miss Parker is saying is argument in regards to the weight the court should -- the jury should give this evidence, but the court could instruct them that it's being offered for purposes of clarification, and what the court -- the jury should focus on would be his

statements and not necessarily the comments from Miss Neighbors. That's a suggestion. In -- so, that's where

the court believes that it is in -- regarding the playing of the Defendant's Exhibit 401. In regards to

the late disclosure, there were rules in effect regarding discovery, reciprocal discovery. I'm not

going to say at this point that there's any showing to the court that this was done deliberately, Miss Neighbors, or you did it in bad faith. before the court. that. That's not

now has been discovered, but I do believe that if there's anything in the future of this nature, the court might have to look at it more closely, and at that point, after argument and review, I may end up deciding it may or may not come in. So, one of the ways I think

that could be possibly addressed by the parties before it comes to the court is if in fact there is anything else out there, that both sides immediately let the other side know about that so that that could be reviewed and then brought to the court's attention, if necessary.

made it clear, the government believes that Mr. Duma has

We

do not mean to infer that the late disclosure is in any way attributable to Mr. Duma. THE COURT: MR. DUMA: MS. PARKER: THE COURT: Anything else? Nothing. Nothing from the government. So, are the parties then clear

on what the court has found to be in regards to this exhibit? MR. DUMA: Judge, I think what -- I think

what will happen is I think I will ask this gentleman, do you remember a conversation you had with Miss Neighbors. Since he just heard it, I'm sure he will. I

will ask him what might appear to be a discrepancy between what he said and what he'll probably testify to, and just from talking to him, I think he has a pretty reasonable explanation. Then there won't be any

necessity to play that tape. THE COURT: We'll see what takes place on

the witness stand, but that would probably be along the lines of what I am recommending to be the appropriate way to address this. call the jury back. MS. PARKER: Thank you, Your Honor, for If there's nothing else, we'll

return it because it comes from a manufacturer and you have to call the manufacturer, so I knew they would tell me that, and then they tell you just to call the manufacturer and they send you out the door with it. Q. They send you out the door with what they believe

A. Q.

Yes, sir. And it looks like also since you got a burglary

in Douglas County in July of 2010, that that crack addiction must have stayed on there for a while even after you worked with these police, correct? A. Q. A little bit after, but not in 2010. Okay. The records show that you were arrested

for that burglary in January of 2009, and then convicted in July of 2010. memory? A. Q. Yes. Now -- so, I'm assuming that in January of 2009 Would that be consistent with your

when you were burglarizing, that was because you were a drug addict, not just 'cause records were obtained 'cause you were stealing? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. So, for at least a couple of years

after the time that you worked with the Lawrence police, you still had a drug problem, a crack problem? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. You indicated that when you came in

to see Miss Neighbors, that -- well, let me ask -- let me start back. When you first started cooperating with

the police, they made you aware that they were conducting an investigation that involved the federal

people. A. Q.

Would you agree with that? Yes, sir. All right. And it's kind of common knowledge

that the federal folks hammer you pretty hard at sentencing as opposed to the state people. agree with that? A. Q. Yes, sir. Okay. So, when they told you that if you Would you

cooperate, we're not going to take you federal, that -that meant a lot to you, I would assume? A. Q. Most definitely, yes, sir. 'Cause that federal sentence can be huge compared

to the state sentence, right? A. Q. A. Q. Yes, sir. As far as what you know, right? Yes, sir. Okay. The police might not have told you that

necessarily, but you kind of knew that just from the streets? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. Now, the first time that you went in

to see Miss Neighbors ever I think was when you sold her a generator back on June 1st, 2006. A. there. Is that right?

That would not have been the first time I was in

Q.

That wasn't the first time?

Okay.

The first

time you went in there, I think you testified that you told Miss Neighbors that you got whatever it was you sold her for a gift, as a gift? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And I have to say that I was somewhat

impressed by your ability to get stuff out of stores as often as you did, especially when you had somebody in the store actually help you take something out. Would

it be fair to say during that period of time that you were like a professional shoplifter? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And -- and as part of doing that,

when you're trying to get that stuff out of the store, you would do everything you could not to act suspicious so nobody would -- would arrest you, I would assume is correct? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And that was just part of what you

had to do when you -- when you took stuff from those stores? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. Curiously enough, if you -- when you

took those things back to the return counter, did they ever give you cash?

A. Q.

Without a receipt, no. Okay. If they would have offered you cash right

there, I assume you would have taken that? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. But then after they said they

wouldn't take it back, then you took it out of the store as if you had previously bought it, were trying to return it, but didn't have a receipt? A. Q. Yes, sir. Did you ever try to tell them a story about why

you didn't have the receipt? A. Q. A. Q. Yeah. You'd make something up like -Yes, sir. -- you know, I got it for a gift and my wife lost

the receipt or something like that? A. Q. I'd make up an excuse. All right. And then you would take the stuff to

Yellow House? A. Q. Yes, sir. Now, the first time that you sold to Yellow

House, you told Miss Neighbors it was -- you got it for a gift, I think? A. a gift. The very first time, I didn't tell her it was for I just told her it was sitting around the

house, I believe. Q. A. Q. Okay. But -- but you gave her some story?

Yes, sir. As to why it wouldn't be suspicious or wouldn't

be stolen? A. Q. Yes, sir. Because if -- if she knew it was stolen, she

wasn't going to buy it from you? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And you had a generator that came in.

Now, that -- I don't -- was that the second time that you sold her something, the generator, or was there some other stuff between the first time and that generator? A. There was a couple -- there was a thing or two

before the generator. Q. All right. But every time you come in there with

something, you would give her some story that would throw suspicion away from the fact that the property was stolen? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And now the generator, it was -- it

was dusty, I think you said? A. Q. Yes, sir. And the reason that you liked to have dust on

those items when you sold 'em was because it didn't --

it looked like it was less -- less new, I guess is the best way to put it? A. Q. Yes, sir. And would cast less suspicion on you as bringing

in stolen stuff? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And on the generator, she asked if it

was stolen, you said no, and the reason that you said no, because otherwise, she might not buy it? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. Now -- and it sounds like every time

you went in there, that Miss Neighbors made you sign a document that said the property wasn't stolen? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. And it looks like that on that

document, the -- what she bought from you and the exact amount that she paid you for the item was -- was accurate on those documents? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. Even on the ones that -- where she

paid you cash? A. Q. A. For the most part, yes. Okay. I didn't -- there was a couple times that she

didn't -- I didn't fill that out.

Q. A.

Okay. When she bought the meat and stuff like that, she

just gave me the money, gift cards, she just gave me money. Q. All right. And that would have been after you

had filled out one previously? A. Q. Yes, sir. Okay. Now, on the first sale, it's -- it's -- it

looks like, or it sounds like when -- in that -- I'm talking about the first undercover sale that you did? A. Q. Yes, sir. It sounds like that there were other people that

were present right around where you were at when you were dealing with her? A. Q. Yes. I mean, it sound like there was a woman's voice

and a man's voice and I can't tell exactly who that is? A. Q. A. Yes. Do you remember who that woman looked like? She was an older lady, kind of short, brown hair,

I believe she had glasses, she was sitting in a chair by the window. Q. All right. And was this transaction occurring at

like the main desk there by the register? A. Yes.

like down the aisle, and it was kind of -- there's kind of like one little main desk area there where the cash register is? A. Q. A. You walk into the door, it's to the right. All right. And then there's stuff all through the store

right here, but you go right here. Q. All right. And -- but that where you -- where --

where you went to talk to Miss Neighbors, was that like where the cash register is? A. Q. A. Q. A. Yes. All right. Yes. Okay. It's like in the main part of the store? Where she keeps the checkbook?

Yeah, where the -- about where they would keep

all their important stuff, I guess you could say. Q. All right. Now, on that first -- on that first

buy, it sounds like you guys would talk about other stuff and just general, the weather and just -A. Q. Yes. -- hot and etcetera. So, it didn't seem like you

wanted to carry on that conversation, so, it didn't seem like you were in a big hurry to draw suspicion yourself, right?

conversation, so it didn't seem like she was in a big hurry, did it? A. Q. A. Q. Yep. Is that right? Yes, sir. All right. And then you filled out -- on that

birthday gift, not stolen, filled out the seller's form? A. Q. Yes, sir. And same deal, you came in and went right to the

location? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. In the store. All right. And then

receiving -- were you getting any money out of the undercover sales? A. Q. Oh, no. Okay. So, the reason that -- the real reason

that you went in on the 20th without the cops knowing is so -- because you needed some money for some more drugs. Would you agree with that? A. Q. Yes. All right. And this whole time that you're

working with the police, you were still using? A. Q. A. drugs. Yes. All right. Did they know that?

I'm -- I didn't -- I told 'em that I was on I don't know if they knew that I was on it at

the precise minute they was talking to me, but I'm pretty sure they knew that I was on drugs. Q. All right. Well, you're not a heavy guy now, so

I assume 60 pounds off of you is -- makes you look pretty thin. A. Q. A. Q. Would that be fair?

Yes, sir, about 110. Pardon me? About 110 pounds. All right. And now, you -- you say that when you

went in there on the 20th, when you weren't tape-recorded, that Miss Neighbors said the police came

in and told her not to buy from a bald-headed guy with a goatee? A. Q. Yes, sir. All right. But I mean, just interestingly

enough, the next day when you came in, when there was a tape recorder, Miss Neighbors asked you this question, and I'm just quoting exactly from the transcript, the police were in here looking for a guy like you. I mean,

it -- it doesn't make sense that Miss Neighbors would have said on the tape-recorded conversation the police were in here looking for a guy like you if the day before she said the police were all ready in here looking for you. A. The day before when the police didn't know I went

in there, she had been raided that morning or the evening before, and she was talking about it, talking about the police came in and I let the officers know. So, the next day that I went in there, I made sure that it was brought up again, so it would be talked about again, is why it was brought up two days in a row. Q. Okay. All right. And was that part of the

coaching that you got from the police to try to set this thing up? A. Q. Yeah. There really wasn't coaching. Now, you were -- you were video

on that third sale, or that you had goatee on that third sale? A. Q. A. Q. I'm positive. Okay. You hadn't shaved it?

in that investigation? A. Q. No, I did not. And other than this task that he asked you to

Yellow House who had just purchased a miter saw, and wanted me to call and make that credit card transaction in order to purchase the miter saw from Yellow House. Q. A. Q. And so, you were actually calling Yellow House? Yes. And the person that -- that you were portraying

BY MR. OAKLEY: Q. Now, Officer Bialek, we've introduced as exhibits

items that were seized from the Yellow House Store during that state search warrant, and I've shown photographs of other items that were returned to their rightful owners. Is that all of the items that were

seized from the search warrant as new in box merchandise? A. What you see here is in my estimate about a

50 percent representation of -- of brand new in the box items that were seized that day. Q. So, this is just a representative sample. This

isn't all of the items that were seized as new in the box? A. That's correct. The remaining items reside at

the Lawrence Police Department in our evidence room. Q. Now, let me direct your attention to a second

series of search warrants that occurred on July 7th of 2006. Were you involved in the execution of search

warrants at both the defendant's residence and at the Yellow House Store on that day?

it's not proper for anyone to do any type of independent research or investigation. Again, the only place you

receive evidence is here in the courtroom, and that would also include to disregard anything in the media, if there were to be anything in the media from whatever source, as well as not participating in any type of social media on your own. As you head back to your

vehicles, even among yourselves, you're not able to talk about the case, and that also would include any conversations that may be brought up at home. please keep that in mind. So,

Have everyone return tomorrow Thank you.
