The latest on Ritch -- fingers crossed everyone!
« on: August 04, 2010, 10:25:43 PM »
August 10th at 9:30 am PST the judge renders his verdict against the coward that sucker punched Ritch. We are firmly in your corner Ritch. Fingers crossed there is some justice!

Thanks for that, Brian.

Any updates on Ritch's condition and progress?

And when you say "verdict" you make it sound like there's some doubt.  What was the idiot charged with and how much time is he going to spend in jail getting up close and personal with his homophobia?

I haven't heard any more about Ritch's condition other than what was indicated in articles regarding the trial. He's in an assisted care facility and will require help in things like eating, bathing and caring for himself for the rest of his life. He has no recollection of the incident.

As for the trial the defence's case claimed that Ritch had also tried to grope the defendant a couple of times before he'd finally had enough. Sadly it could get do to a he said, he said with the victim having no ability to contradict the defendant's claims.

Ritch's assailant guilty!

Beat me to it Ken.

I heard from our friends in Vancouver today and also listened to CKNW (thanks for alerting me to it Hambone) for their report on it.

Apparently the court room was standing room only. Ritch has a lot of friends.

So now we wait until October 22 for sentencing.

I hope a ton of jail time is ahead for Shawn Woodward.

I suspect this guy is going to get significant jail time based on what I have read.  I was a little nervous after reading Hambone's take (Ritch not being able to recall the incident), that he might get off.  But some of the things that came out in the trial suggested (to me at least) that the chance for a conviction should be high...
