New Evidence of an Interest in Asian Men? Disclaimer: This post is MSFW – Mostly Safe For Work. When the prosecution admitted they were dropping much of the sexual assault evidence at trial their stated reason was an “evolving” opinion.  Just as the prosecution’s opinions are evolving, so too are our ideas about the Swann Street housemate’s sexual...

To Compel or Not to Compel

Defendants Motion to Compel Discovery; Gov’t Replies: “Talk to the Hand” It must be getting closer to May.  Hardly a day passes without another shower of paper in the Robert Wone Case. On Monday things got off to a big, fat 172-page start with the defense’s motion to compel outstanding discovery.   If it seems like we’ve been...

Sever(al) Motions

Someone’s Clearly Not On The Same Page Whatever else can be said, this week’s motions have clarified one question…and raised multiple new ones. First, the question answered: how would the defense counter the prosecution’s filing of “Uncharged Conduct 1″? The government’s blueprint was assertive and the case brought by AUSA Glenn Kirschner and his deputy Patrick Martin...

Uncharged Conduct: Defense Response

03/03/2010
By David

Defense:  Semen Is From Postmortem Process, Not Sexual Assault A flurry of motions in the Robert Wone case hit the DC Superior Court with a ferocity to match last month’s Snowmaggeddon, as the defense sought to fortify their position that Robert Wone was not incapacitated or sexually assaulted on the night he was murdered. This came in their...

Not Safe For Wone Last week’s filing of the Government’s Notice of Uncharged Conduct I generated a fair amount of light and heat in the Robert Wone case.  The ‘light’ column features highlights of the government’s position – that the murder investigation “…continues”, that the “…killer is someone know to and being protected by...

Uncharged Conduct, and Michael Price Uncharged…Yet Hewing to Judge Lynn Leibovitz’  scheduling order, the prosecution has met their first deadline.  The government’s filing of “Uncharged Conduct I” was due on February 5th and was made public Tuesday, Feb. 16th… just a few days after Valentine’s Day.  This was no Whitman’s Sampler to the defendants. “Given the...

Power Outage

Government Cedes Crucial Element; Opens New Avenues  With a new judge setting an expedited schedule, and a trial date drawing nearer, filings between all sides – the government, the defense and the court – are moving post-haste.  And that’s only half the story.    Critical information contained in these filings, which has never been revealed, shows both...

Why introducing the BDSM aspect is probative One of the thresholds the judge must determine is whether the value of evidence is more probative than prejudicial when deciding what evidence makes it to trial.  If it is deemed probative, then it helps explain the crime, and thus meets the standard.  Or the judge could say...

Purpose of this Site

On August 2nd, 2006, Washington attorney Robert E. Wone was murdered at 1509 Swann Street. Over two years passed before any criminal charges were filed - and then only conspiracy, obstruction of justice and crime scene tampering charges were brought against the Swann Street housemates, all present in the home on the night of the murder: Joe Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky.

On May 17, 2010, a DC Superior Court trial got underway and all three defendants were all acquitted in that bench trial on those pending charges.

Nearly four years later, very little seems clear about what happened that night and who murdered Robert Wone. A cloud of suspicion remains over the Swann Street defendants who have denied any involvement in the murder of their friend or in the alleged cover up.

Judge Lynn Leibovitz found a moral certainty in their collective guilt, but not evidentiary certainty. Civil proceedings in a wrongful death suit filed by Robert's family is the next chapter in this tragic story.

We continue to work together seeking answers to the mystery of Robert Wone's murder and in finding justice for his memory and legacy.
