Much to the judge’s dismay, the warrant seeking certain exhibits in the Orie Sisters trial was released to the media, and it shed light on some things we weren’t certain of.
Having read the warrant request, let me save you the time of poring over it for details.
1. There was apparently an “ethics binder” submitted by the defense, which Jamie Pavlot claimed she never saw. The ethics binder contained the handwritten notes by Jane Orie on printed emails.
Pavlot testified under oath that she had never seen the binder before.
Yes, ETHICS BINDER. LOL.
Could they be any more blatant?
It’s like detectives breaking into a suspected thief’s house and finding on the coffee table a folder labeled, “WHY IT IS WRONG TO STEAL AND THEREFORE I WILL NEVER DO IT EVER EVER EVER AMEN.”
2. The warrant confirms that because Pavlot denied ever seeing the notations or the ethics binder, they were not permitted to be entered as evidence. Orie then tesified under oath that she was fo course aware of the ethics binder, duh:
Orie testified under oath that the handwritten notations … had been written by her on or about the corresponding dates of the documents.
Oooh. Kiss of death.
I have a feeling the ink analysis is going to show the handwriting is fresh like phat beats.
3. Following testimony, the detective interviewed Jamie Pavlot:
Pavlot also adamantly denied ever having created, been in possession of or observed … the ethics binder. Pavlot also stated at this time that she could not recall any time in her tenure … that the Senator have given such lengthy handwriting notations on any subject matter.
The detective interviewed another employee who corroborated that Orie was more an email, text kind of person and not a let me print this out and write via longhand how I feel about it person.
4. A telling part that reveals the timing of the forgeries being brought to light:
On March 3, 2011, while awaiting a verdict … members of the District Attorney’s office were organizing copies of Orie defense exhibits and discovered that defense exhibit #101a containing an original ink signature of Jamie Pavlot which, when compared to Pavlot’s photocopied signature on defense exhibit #110, appeared identical.
So it was the DA’s people that found the original signature.
It was from there that everything hopped in the handbasket and shouted, “Hell, ho!”
5. One of the documents supposedly authored by Pavlot, submitted by the defense, and denied by Pavlot, actually had the address for the office wrong, as 4700 instead of 9400 McKnight Road. This mistake was noticed by Jamie Pavlot AFTER the mistrial during her interview with the detective and she said was further proof that she never authored the letter, as she would not have made such a mistake.
6. Orie testified that the documents in question, 39 in all, were in Jamie Pavlot’s control, but as the warrant then states, Pavlot was removed from her position and transferred out of the office last May, and since that time, the documents have been in Jane Orie’s control.
A roundabout way of saying, yep, she totally had the access and time and means to fabricate this stuff.
This is the part where Horatio would put his glasses on and say, “And she certainly had the [sunglasses] motive.”
Man, your life is missing something if you don’t watch CSI: Miami.
7. The United States Secret Service will conduct the forensic analysis, not Horatio Caine.
So we have political enemies, lying, intrigue, forgery, perjury, mall hair, clown makeup, hooker nails and now, the Secret Service.
This sounds like a Kardashian movie!
You can read the whole warrant here.
It’s a fun read!
Four stars! Two thumbs up!
DO YOU SMELL SMOKE, BECAUSE THIS LADY IS [SUNGLASSES] TOAST!
