I know there are a few other skateboarders or past skateboarders on here, but I'm asking for anyone's help on this one. This is just ridiculous... Saying that an eye-witness' to a rape incident cannot be taken seriously and is dismissed as "the skateboard witness."
Electronic Petition to have his testimony heard: And here's a link to an electronic petition started to have them actually consider Gregory Matherly's ("the skateboard witness") testimony.More details to make your blood boil have emerged from the trial of former police officer Michael Pena, who was found guilty of three counts of predatory sexual assault for attacking a 25-year-old school teacher at gunpoint while off-duty in Manhattan last August. A juror interviewed after the judge declared a mistrial on the rape charges told the News the three holdouts didn’t take the testimony of witness Gregory Matherly seriously, dismissing him as the “skateboard witness.” “I know Greg,” said neighbor Eva Okada. “He’s not a liar. Just because he rides a skateboard doesn’t make him a liar.”
