The court date has been moved too many times to count. This alone is devastating for a family that needs to fly into town for every court date. The next court date is December 19th at 9:00 am before the Honorable Judge Kathryn L. Quaintance.
This is an omnibus hearing to go over the TON of motions that Philip Bertelsen has filed. I have spoken directly with a reliable source and have learned that he allegedly is disputing the blood test. He is claiming that he was knocked out by...
...the impact and did not consent to having a blood test done. Officers will be testifying on the 19th.
I don't know what all that means. I know that the tests show he was DRUNK and that he was driving in excess of one hundred miles per hour. I know that he is living freely in his Golden Valley home while these two young people are buried in a grave. When you come into North Minneapolis and KILL two wonderful young people, justice should come quickly and justice should come hard.
Please don't let this situation fade from your thoughts or your prayers. As you send off your Christmas cards to the ones you love take a moment to send a letter to the Honorable Judge. These heartbroken Mothers need your support.
