Another thought on Chi

A reader sent a long letter questioning Peter Chi’s conviction. She asked not to be identified, but at the same time made such compelling arguments, I have to share. I won’t reveal her name. I have to admit that she put a seed of doubt in my mind, although I have a hard time believing that 36 women would make up such horrible things to take down somebody. Needless to say, it is complicated.

Read the letter.

This leads me to ask why we don’t have access to the grand jury transcripts sooner than June 6. That’s when Judge Xapuri Villapudua will hold a hearing on the topic of unsealing. I dread for personal reasons having to wade through page after page of victims’ explicit descriptions of sexual crimes. So much of this case played out behind closed doors. That grand jury document could also explain if Chi — who went to prison, lost his medical license, will have to register for life as a sex offender and how about the shame — got a fair deal.
