Perhaps the most shocking part of the Orie mistrial isn’t that signatures were forged, but that they were so BLATANTLY forged.
Internet, someone almost got away with this.
Original signature that was lifted:
Moved to here. Notice the lines in the P and the shape of the J. Notice the distance from the signature line. All identical from one document to the next.
And here, the signature looks slightly different, but again, the P has been messed with, and the fact that you can’t see the “S” on “witness” and that the hanging g or y or whatever from the signature above is cut off, means it was covered with a signature lifted from another place:
They didn’t even bother to line the signature lines up properly.
Who knows what will happen now, but one thing we all know for sure is that whoever did this might be the worst
forger forgeist forgifier signature falsifier ever.
