Whoops…guess Raymond Moss won’t have his 9 witnesses after all!Posted by Jack Howser on Tuesday, November 16th, 2010 @ 4:05 pm.
SALINE CO.—The Saline County grand jury met again today, and they handed down several indictments on three people, one of them being well-known area criminal Raymond Moss.
Moss was arrested mid-month October and charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault. Today, the grand jury, lead by Assistant Saline County State’s Attorney Eva Walker, indicted Moss on that same count, wherein he is accused of harming Jenna Foster while having sex with her.
This puts kind of a crimp in Moss’ most recent plans.
Moss was in court last Friday, represented by public defender Lowell Tison. It was requested of the court that a week continuance be granted Moss, as he was planning on calling in, by subpoena, nine witnesses for his preliminary hearing.
It’s unknown what those nine people were going to be asked to testify to, as well as who they were. Speculation had it that they were going to say the rough sex between Moss and Foster was consensual, although how they would know such a thing unless they observed it first-hand is unknown. Other speculation had it that testimony was going to be given about Foster’s low character and how she couldn’t be believed…however, in this case, bruises and marks speak louder than words.
However, it’s all best-laid plans of mice and men now, because being indicted by a grand jury means that Moss won’t have a preliminary hearing this Friday. The grand jury replaces a prelim. So, no subpoenas issued, and we may never know what Moss was going to have his witnesses testify to.
Also indicted today under Walker’s watchful guidance was Raymond L. Brindley, on two Class 4 felony counts of Child Abduction. Brindley is not in custody; a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
A third indictee is John B. Jones, this grand jury being lead by the Appellate Prosecutor’s office special prosecutor Chuck Zalar. Jones was indicted on the 11 counts he has already been charged with, these having to do with multiple cases in which he’s accused of filching money from funeral home patrons who were buying pre-need plans. We’re kinda stressed and upset that there won’t be a prelim for Jones; we are just itching to find out what his excuse is for these allegations.
