    Court assignment turns into a circus

    I was given the job today of escorting former Governor's son to a hearing today. He is charged with murdering his ex girlfriend. While I knew this was big news in Kentucky, I was suprised to see ABC, CBS, 20/20and 48Hours in the courtroom. I guess this is big news because of who he is.

    No, I think it's just the luck of the draw.

    I do not have to go into the courtroom yet. But every time the door opens for him to enter or exit, they get me. The sad thing here is this man had it all. Money, prestige, and that reputation. And, he seems to be a very decent man, who may or may not have made a really bad decision. But, he is innocent until proven guilty. I am sure that he never, ever expected himself to be in thi position.

    Didn't a forensic examination of the external hard drive find child pornography along with nude photographs of Amanda Ross and other women?

    You know what, I don't know. This may sound crazy, but I don't much keep up with these people or follow their cases . Heck you probably know more about him then I do. But that would definatley change my assumption of him. The hearing broke for lunch and is back in session now, so all I really know about him is what we spoke about during the break.

    I don't know that it is a fact, just something I heard, I thought you might know.

    Here's an excerpt from an article that I found:

    "Bleeding from self-inflicted wounds to both wrists, Nunn was lying near a handgun that he picked up and pointed at police. He has been charged with murder and with violating the protective order."

    He sounds like a real peach.
