This is a case of court’s denial to a 16-year-old detective requesting access for the evidence of a murder case. This article covers the entire story in detail.
Detailing of the accused and the crime :
The accused of the murder is Darlie Routier. She was charged with murdering her two sons of 5 years and six years ago. All this happened in 1996. Right from then, she was in jail. Darilie Router was a fighter for her innocence in this case.
Words from Judge and Prosectors :
A 16-year-old boy named Ryan Krester is a lot interested in this case. As he says that this happened like 5 minutes from his home. So he requested the court to give access to the pieces of evidence for him. The judge of the court Gracie Lewis initially granted his request, saying Kester could view, photograph or copy exhibits entered into evidence at trial as long as it doesn’t compromise sensitive personal information. But the attorney said that it would be a line out of the door. The defense attorney Stephen Cooper further said that frankly, it would be a terrible precedent for this young man to get access to the materials. And I could imagine there would be a long line afterward.
Words from the detective :
Ryan Kester, a real crime blogger and college student from Rockwall. He has taken classes at the University of Tulsa and plans to attend the University of Texas in the fall with hopes of getting into law school. He said that he respects the decision of the judge of the court. As of now, I will investigate with the pieces of evidence that are public access. I want to prove that Darlie Router is innocent of my investigation. I will make a documentary of it and move on to far more cases. This case was an inspiring one for me to start solving many criminal cases in the future.
