The victim stated that the person
who assaulted her was wearing a beard. Mr. Richard Merson, who
the defense attorney (Eric Eide
) never called to the stand to testify
but instead was left to sit outside the courtroom, states that on the
night of the alleged assault he and Scotty had gotten into an argument
after Mr. Richard Merson caught him using his razor. Richard
Merson was on the witness list...he simply was never called on.
Scotty Merson was clean shaven during the night the alleged
assault took place.
