Attorney Jill Clark is representing Peter. The exact procedure of the hearing has been described to me by a local attorney, and it is believed it will go something like this...
Pete will sit quietly for a moment, glaring. He will seem to calm down. Then suddenly, without warning...
Kidding. I'm kidding.
There are two phases of the hearing. In the first phase, the allegations against Peter will be either admitted (yes, I tried to slap legal paper on Johnny Northside and then attempted to file an affidavit of service, even though I've been declared a frivolous litigant) or denied. (What affidavit of service? YOUR HONOR, that's a spurious forgery that I didn't even write!)
If allegations are admitted, the pedophile probationer either hopes for mercy or would assert the actions in question don't amount to something probation should be revoked over. If the allegations are denied, well, every little thing will have to be proven. Those who have observed attorney Clark expect her to fight for every inch of ground and attempt to extract a pound of flesh, though the effort ultimately be futile.
It is unknown whether there will be an actual decision today, or whether the judge will take the matter under consideration. We're also not sure who the judge will be. There's some speculation it will be the original judge who sentenced Peter to prison. But we just don't know and, unfortunately, this blog has been repeatedly told the hearing is NOT PUBLIC. It will reportedly take place in the jail building.
There are civil rights issues this blog will beef about, like my right to take a photo in a public street or public place. However, the openness of this particular hearing is not one of those issues. If it's a starry chamber inside that hearing, with the judge wearing a ski mask, I will likely say, "Sometimes it gets cold inside. Oh, I like what you've done with the ceiling."
When I have word about the fate of Spanky Pete, I will slap it up on this blog as fast as possible, I promise.
