The Prosecutors are afraid the truth about this case will be heard in court.

Oh please, that's not a very good reason to be afraid of a little court hearing.

What could Norris possibly say in court that would make the prosecutor run away?


It appears that the prosecution's motion has as its foundation an appeal to concealment rather than disclosure. Ohio taxpayers expect that the prosecutorial process of the court reveal truth in circumstances for proper judgement, and never manipulate this system to conceal information for their advantage, thereby undermining the fairness of due process.
