m. police said he fired the first roundSince 1999 the shooters in at least 145 acts of gun violence at primary and secondary schools have been under the age of 18 according to an analysis by The Washington Post Discussions about how to curb shootings at American schools have centered on arming teachers or improving mental health treatment banning military-style rifles or strengthening background checks But if kids as young as 6 did not have access to guns The Post’s findings show two-thirds of school shootings over the past two decades could not have happened While investigators don’t always determine – or publicly reveal – the weapons’ origins The Post found 105 cases in which the source was identified Of those the guns were taken from a child’s home or those of relatives or friends 84 times The Post discovered just four instances when the adult owners of the weapons were criminally punished because they failed to lock them upWhen Commonwealth Attorney Mark Blankenship took on the Parker prosecution his focus was solely on ensuring that the teen would be tried as an adult making him eligible to receive a life sentence But the longer Blankenship thought about how Parker had gotten the weapon the more it troubled himParker wasn’t a hunter and didn’t hang out much with the high schoolers who were The teen a plump redhead who wore glasses was quiet and shy He had a small group of friends mostly from Marshall’s marching band in which he played the tuba The teen couldn’t have persuaded another student or anyone else to give him a weapon without raising considerable suspicion Blankenship concluded To the prosecutor that meant the only gun Parker could have used to ravage his high school was the one he took from his stepfather’s closetLike almost everyone he knows Blankenship 65 owns a firearm It’s a shotgun his father passed down to him and though he doesn’t keep shells for it and has never considered himself an enthusiast he’s been around guns since birth Blankenship also appreciates why someone would want to reach a weapon quickly during a break-in so he researched gun safes online and what he found were more than a dozen devices for under $250 that had been designed to securely store pistols – just like Minyard’s – and be opened in less than three seconds"That’s when it really hit me" Blankenship said "that this was so easily preventable"Gun rights are revered in Marshall County a community of 31000 where 3 in 4 voters backed Donald Trump in 2016 Generations of cattle corn and tobacco farmers throughout this nearly all-white swath of countryside have long viewed their rifles and shotguns much the same way they do their rakes and shovels: essential tools that on their own could do no harm In fact many people still find it more unseemly to drink a beer in public – Marshall was dry until 2015 – than to wield an AR-15 rifle in public – legal in almost all of Kentucky thanks to its open-carry lawBlankenship in office since 2008 was on the verge of beginning his reelection campaign and knew that scrutinizing the pistol’s owner would be unpopular but he just couldn’t shake how much trauma one gun in the hand of one 15-year-old had causedThere were the teachers who’d been covered in their own students’ blood the officers whose kids were begging them not to go back to work the paramedic who could no longer stand large crowds the young siblings of high schoolers who imagined they would be shot next the two couples who had outlived their children and the teenagers – so many that Blankenship couldn’t fit everyone’s parents into his office – who had bullet holes in their arms and legs and chests and stomachs and facesSo about a week after the shooting in a meeting with investigators the prosecutor finally said it out loud: "I’m seriously thinking about going after the stepfather"- – -Every year state lawmakers across the country propose bills to hold adults criminally liable for negligently storing guns where children can reach them and every year for various reasons legislatures decide not to pass those billsOnly 14 states and the District of Columbia have approved such laws according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence but even those statutes researchers say are often not enforced are too limited or carry weak penalties rendering them ineffectiveThe issue drew national attention in May after a 17-year-old in Santa Fe Texas was accused of killing 10 people at his school with a handgun and a shotgun that belonged to his dad Although the state has a negligent-storage law the father could not be charged under it because Texas defines a child as 16 or youngerRuss Hauge didn’t think he needed a special law when the former Washington state prosecutor took on what he called a case of "gross gross negligence" in 2012A third-grader he said had found a 45-caliber semiautomatic handgun in the home of his mother’s boyfriend Douglas Bauer who kept firearms – loaded unlocked and in some cases cocked – throughout the place The boy then 9 put the weapon in his backpack and took it to school where it accidentally fired leaving a bullet lodged near the spine of an 8-year-old girlThe prosecutor knew he could charge Bauer with reckless endangerment he said but a misdemeanor wouldn’t strip the man of his right to own a gun so Hauge charged him with third-degree assault a felonyHauge believed Bauer’s actions perfectly fit the definition of "criminal negligence" that "causes bodily harm to another person by means of a weapon" The state Supreme Court however disagreed deciding the law was too vague to sustain the chargeHauge who left office in 2014 said he owns several firearms and is a firm supporter of the Second Amendment but he just as strongly believes that every state in America should require gun owners to secure their weaponsInstead thousands of children have used unlocked pistols shotguns and rifles to kill themselves or accidentally shoot others And they’ve wielded them again and again to target classmatesIn 2000 a 13-year-old boy in Florida found what he thought was a cookie tin in his grandfather’s bedroom that instead held a 25-caliber handgun and several rounds of ammunition The teen loaded the weapon and killed a teacher at school The grandfather was never chargedIn 2003 a 15-year-old boy in Minnesota opened a dresser drawer in which his father stored nearly a dozen guns and picked out a 22-caliber pistol that he’d fired before at a shooting range He used it to kill two classmates at school The father – a sheriff’s deputy – was never chargedBoth states had already passed laws that require adults to keep their guns away from kids but each statute includes significant caveats that limit prosecutors’ ability to use itIn fact none of the four successful prosecutions identified by The Post resulted from charges related to negligent-storage laws The harshest penalty among those cases was a 29-month term behind bars for involuntary manslaughter In that instance a man in Michigan had used a shoe box to store his 32-caliber semiautomatic handgun which a 6-year-old visitor found and took to school then fatally shot a first-grade classmateTo effect real change Hauge argues adults must face felonies"We’re looking at a class of crimes where deterrence might actually work" he said "If there was a clear law that says felony punishment will ensue if you don’t handle your weapons safely I think we could get some people’s attention"In western Kentucky Missy Jenkins Smith has been trying to get people’s attention for two decadesOn the morning of Dec 1 1997 Jenkins Smith had just finished a prayer circle at Heath High – 30 miles northwest of Marshall – when she watched a schoolmate get shot in the head A moment later a round struck her in the chestIn all three people died and five were wounded At the age of 15 Jenkins Smith was paralyzed from the chest down She later learned that the shooter then 14 had stolen the 22-caliber semiautomatic pistol from the garage of a neighbor who’d left the gun outside his safeJenkins Smith now a school counselor has written two books about her experience and emphasizes in speeches that no campus is immune from an attack Like Hauge she has no issue with guns; her husband a hunter owns several But when she heard how authorities say Parker had gotten his weapon she realized how little had changed in Kentucky over the past 21 yearsThe owner of the pistol that left her in a wheelchair was never charged Instead police said he got his gun backHannah Dysinger was already waiting for her best friend when the girl arrived at Marshall High on the morning of Jan 23"You look so cute" Hannah told Bailey Holt who was wearing jeans trendy dark-rimmed glasses and as she did almost every day a pair of Converse sneakersHannah and Bailey both 15 occupied their usual spot near one entrance in Marshall’s commons a wide open room with a two-story-high ceiling where hundreds of teens gathered each day before classes Hannah liked the way her makeup looked so she insisted Bailey take a photo with her new iPhone X Hannah grinned for the camera revealing her braces as she held up a McDonald’s frappeIt was spirit week at Marshall and each day had a certain theme so as the commons swelled before first period many students were sporting red white and blue for that Tuesday’s motif: AmericaThen came the first gunshotHannah looked into Bailey’s eyes for what felt like a long time but wasn’t because then Hannah heard another shot and another and another She turned and ran for the door fleeing across the parking lot toward the school’s football field as dozens of other panicked students stampeded alongside herHannah’s phone rang It was her boyfriend who’d been with them inside"Where are you" she asked and as he told her he was safe Hannah felt something warm and wet inside her black Timberland shirt She looked down then she saw it There was a bullet hole in her chest"I’m bleeding" she shrieked "I’m bleeding"The commons had gone quiet by the time Superintendent Trent Lovett 52 arrived minutes after the shooting He’d also attended Marshall the county’s only public high school which opened in 1974He already knew his daughter a freshman was safe in the tech center But two other teenagers a boy and a girl who’d been shot were sprawled on the floor in front of Lovett and across the room was another teen with a wound to his stomach A nurse who taught health education was running triage with school staff"Where’s the shooter" Lovett asked"We don’t know" someone replied so the superintendent pulled an aluminum bat from a nearby baseball bag and set off down a hallway guiding terrified students to safety before he returned to the commonsLovett stared out over the speckled tile littered with deserted backpacks and abandoned plastic cups Eight columns bordered the room’s center each inscribed in bright orange letters with virtues the educators tried to instill in students: "PATIENCE" and "FAIRNESS" "RESPECT" and "CARING"Now amid streaks of their blood dozens of the teens’ phones rang and blinked and vibrated all over the floor One was next to Preston Cope a lanky sophomore who played second base on the junior-varsity baseball team He had been shot in the head"Dad" read the caller IDLovett who has known Preston’s family for years stared at the screen Nothing could compare to the loss of a child he knew A 2012 car accident had left his older daughter in a coma at the age of 19 Six months later Lovett and his wife had to take her off life supportNow here he was answering Preston’s phone"What’s going on" the boy’s father asked"It’s not good" Lovett said "Get here as fast as you can""Don’t let them leave with him" Preston’s dad pleaded but Lovett couldn’t promise him thatBy then Investigative Sgt Trey Green of the Kentucky State Police was pulling up to Marshall where his daughter was a sophomore On his way he’d missed a call from an unfamiliar number"Oh my gosh What if that was my daughter" Green thought because he knew she hadn’t taken her phone to school that day He called back and someone answered but he heard nothing He begged for a response but still nothingGreen dressed in a shirt and tie strapped on his tactical vest Officers from the sheriff’s office and city police were already outside the school"Where’s the shooter" he asked"We don’t know" someone saidHe drew his handgun and with a team of three others ventured into the building clearing corners until they reached the commons He first saw the two boys then spotted the girl who was surrounded by school staff His breath quickenedShe had brown hair just as his daughter did Her jeans and eyeglasses on the floor nearby looked just like the ones his child wore too Then there were the dark Converse sneakers shoes he’d seen on her so many times before"I think this is my daughter" he told the nurse caring for herGreen was so overwhelmed by fear and adrenaline that even when someone removed the CPR mask from her face he couldn’t be sureThen the nurse showed him the girl’s bag Green didn’t recognize it"How do you know that’s her backpack" he asked"Because I took that backpack off of her" the nurse said and just as a tide of relief washed over him he was stricken with guiltSomeone else’s daughter he knew was not going to make itThe other teens who were shot had scattered throughout the sprawling 130-acre campus as frantic radio calls among first responders captured the scope of the carnage"One male subject at the board of education shot""I’ve got one gunshot wound up here at the vocational school to the knee""I got a kid out here just out from the commons area Been shot in the leg I think""I need an ambulance to the weight room here at the stadium we have a possible gunshot wound"Meanwhile Lovett learned that the suspected gunman had been caught in the football stadium’s weight room where he had hidden with other students The superintendent headed outside and saw a pair of officers escorting a handcuffed teen across the parking lot"Who is that" Lovett asked but they didn’t know so he demanded that the boy tell him"Gabriel Parker" the student said his expression and tone void of emotionLovett couldn’t place the name so he asked who his parents were Parker said his mother was Mary Garrison Minyard a name the superintendent recognized right away She was a reporter for the Marshall County Daily who had covered school board meetingsOne of the officers asked the teen where his gun was Lovett recalled and Parker said it was outside the performing-arts center"Which side’s it on" Lovett asked his voice rising"By the band room" Parker told him and that’s where the superintendent found it on the sidewalk next to a magazineAmid the mayhem Hannah was rushed to the hospital where an X-ray showed a bullet lodged under her left arm pressed against a rib The round had missed her heart by just inches – and the girl still didn’t know what had happened to BaileyShe was the first close friend Hannah had made when she moved to the area at the end of eighth grade In a rural community where most families had deep roots Hannah was an outsider but Bailey never made her feel that way They talked about boys often but also shared the same retro sensibility rattling off dialogue from "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off" and swooning over 1980s hair bandsWhere are you Hannah messaged herYou’re making me super worriedThen at last she heard the news: Two students both 15 had been killedOne of them Preston had died on the way to the hospital just after his parents told their boy they loved him as he was wheeled to a helicopterBailey in her dark Converse sneakers was the only one who didn’t leave the commons alive A black tag was placed on her wrist a white sheet draped over her bodyMost parents had been directed to a middle school four miles away where children were being bused but some including Heather Adams had driven straight to the high school It was there that she came upon a distraught woman who thought her son might also be among the victims"What’s your son’s name" asked Adams whose own child had already texted that he was okay"Gabe Parker" the woman Mary Minyard repliedAdams texted her boy asking if he’d seen Parker He hadn’t Overcome Minyard slumped to the ground As Adams held the woman’s blond hair away from her face she vomitedMinyard’s phone rang"Why are the police at the house" she asked the caller panickedAfter she hung up Adams guided her to the back of an emergency vehicle"She needs help" Adams told a first responder as she held Minyard who was struggling to remain upright "She’s going into shock"Then the phone rang again"Why would he do that" Adams overheard her ask "Why would he do that"And then: "Go look in the closet and see if it’s in there"And then Adams recalled she heard what the man on the other end said in response: "The gun’s not in the closet"A week had passed and with "#MarshallStrong" signs spreading across Facebook pages and storefronts Blankenship was meeting with investigators saying he might prosecute Parker’s stepfatherThe state police were reluctant he later recalled One officer mentioned that he was a firearms-safety instructor "I don’t even teach parents to lock their guns up" Blankenship remembered the man sayingThe investigators told him that if he wanted to pursue the case he’d have to send them a letter requesting that they open an investigation Blankenship wasn’t deterred If he concluded that a law had been broken they’d get their letterThe prosecutor though needed to identify a specific charge and Kentucky’s statutes provided few options That’s when another attorney in the room suggested an idea What if they waited to see whether a mental health expert presumably hired by the defense found that the teen had psychological issues his parents could or should have recognized"That registered with me" Blankenship said later aware that he would probably need that evidence to get a conviction in Marshall County for something like wanton endangerment a crime of "extreme indifference to the value of human life" that comes with a sentence of up to five years in prison"I think if I got a son at home and he’s got problems and all he has to do is open the door and reach up there and grab a semiautomatic weapon that’s showing a gross indifference" he said then paused – "in today’s world"Because in today’s world teenagers shoot their schoolmates for no reason or any reason and to Blankenship Parker was proof The boy had done it simply as an experiment he’d told sheriff’s Capt Matt Hilbrecht The officer testified at a preliminary court hearing that Parker stoic throughout the interrogation said he had become an atheist and decided that life had no purpose so he wanted to see how students then police then society would react to the attackJustin Minyard according to court records told a detective that he’d noticed no changes in his stepson’s behavior leading up to the shooting School staff classmates a neighbor and people who had known Parker’s family for years described him as an awkward reserved kid who was smart and enamored with band In a since-deleted Instagram post that appeared on a number of news sites after the shooting he shared an adaptation of the Marine Corps’s "Rifleman’s Creed" replacing "my rifle" with "my tuba" He liked violent video games and sometimes seemed sad though at least to most people he never appeared dangerousBut Parker who told investigators he once considered using Minyard’s gun to take his own life had shared memes with friends that depicted SpongeBob SquarePants and school shootings police say and in an Instagram post from last June he wrote cryptically "sorry for the kids that I may hurt in 42"Inside the brown satchel Parker had when police arrested him they allege was a large Winchester knife and a copy of "The Communist Manifesto" and in his bedroom at home they found Adolf Hitler’s autobiography "Mein Kampf" Parker was an avid fanof the multiplayer online video game Roblox in which he created an avatar clothed in a Nazi uniform that he appeared to have used to gun down other Lego-like charactersWhat Parker’s mother and stepfather knew of his troubled mind remains unknown They declined repeated requests for comment and Parker’s public defender Tom Griffiths wouldn’t discuss his client’s past but said that he was "not looking to cast blame in any way on Gabe’s family They’ve been through a lot"Mary has been divorced from Parker’s biological dad who now lives in another state for a decade She met Justin Minyard several years ago after moving to Mississippi where she was an editor at a pair of small publications from about 2013 to 2015For a time Justin worked for her He was initially a page designer before Mary made him a reporter said Donna Summerall who knew both of them at the Daily Times Leader near Starkville Mississippi The two often took smoke breaks together and though Mary now 38 was a decade older than Justin they grew close Both of them Summerall said shared liberal beliefs in communities that were largely conservative though Mary was far more vocal than Justin a slight soft-spoken bespectacled man whom co-workers and a neighbor described as friendly but meekShortly after Justin took a job at a TV station in Mississippi Mary got pregnant Summerall said and about three years ago they had a daughter together It was around then that the couple moved to Marshall where Mary still had family and owned a home She again worked as an editor at a small paper and Justin returned to designing pages at the nearby Paducah Sun According to an online wedding registry they married in 2016One former colleague who has known Mary for years said she was "very anti-gun" and had supported calls for stricter laws which made news of the weapon’s origin astounding to people who knew the family"I was shocked that he would even own a gun much less a good bit of ammunition because he was not the type Not at all" Summerall explained"That just blew me away" said Donna Harris who also worked with him at the Daily Times LeaderReached by phone at his newspaper office Justin refused to answer questions asking that a reporter not call him at work againWhy had he left the gun unlocked in his closet"You have a great day" he said then hung upJeff Dysinger doesn’t blame the gun for what it did to his daughterNot for the two-inch scar along Hannah’s ribs from where surgeons removed the bullet that spiraled through her chest and not for the nightmares in which for some reason she’s the shooter now Not for how she dug her nails into her mom’s arm after someone at Walmart slammed a cart into the wall Not for taking away her best friendDysinger’s belief in the right to bear arms has never wavered A US Army veteran and staunch conservative he used to own an AR-15 and he still has a shotgun for hunting and a pistol for protectionHe likes firearms but also respects them which is why Dysinger blames the Minyards – not just Parker – for all that Hannah has endured"I think the parents ought to be 100 percent liable too" Dysinger said "Whoever that gun is registered to ought to get the same sentence he’s about to get"But even if evidence surfaces that Parker had obvious psychological problems a case against Minyard would be difficult to win in western Kentucky said Jamie French a former police officer who owns a gun store 20 minutes south of the schoolAnd without that evidence"You’d never get a conviction on that Never" he said "Almost everybody sitting on that jury would be able to say ‘I have a gun at home What if my kid takes it What if my grandkid takes it Should I go to jail for that’ "In French’s store there’s a poster tacked to the front counter just beneath the register that federal law mandates gun retailers display In bold white letters it reads: "Youth Handgun Safety Act""Safely storing and securing firearms away from children" the sign warns "will help prevent the unlawful possession of handguns by juveniles stop accidents and save lives"French whose son was a senior at Marshall agrees with that message and wishes all gun owners would adhere to it but he can’t envision Kentucky ever enacting a law that makes those who don’t criminally liable One restriction many of his customers fear would lead to othersMore than a decade ago French said he worked a case in which a 9-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his 6-year-old sibling with a loaded shotgun he’d found in his parents’ closet French had the couple indicted a decision some people he knew didn’t like"We all have loaded guns" one person told himThe case he said went nowhere and the charges were eventually droppedBlankenship suspects he could face the same outcome with Minyard but the prosecutor has never stopped thinking about how simple it would have been to keep the gun out of Parker’s hands in the first placeEarlier this year a judge ruled that Parker now 16 will be tried as an adult allowing Blankenship to pursue the maximum punishment life in prison He’s still not sure whether he’ll be able to hold Minyard legally accountable He is sure of one thing: The laws in Kentucky and every other state need to change"You’ve got kids in the house – you’ve got to lock up your guns" he said "I don’t see why that’s so unreasonable"On a recent summer day at the home where the Ruger 9mm semiautomatic pistol wasn’t locked up the wind chime adorned with a metal cross still dangled above the front door In the yard a child’s weathered plastic swing hung from an American red maple The blinds though were all shut and the Minyards had used a towel to cover the inside of the front door windowA few feet away dug into the weedy grass stood a sign: "FOR SALE"This article was written by John Woodrow Cox andSteven Rich a reporter for The Washington PostThe Washington Post’s Reis Thebault and Julie Tate contributed to this reportMore than a year since a Maple Grove woman’s SUV collided into a vehicle carrying three Mounds View High School students at an Arden Hills intersection investigators are seeking to access her phone to determine if she was using it at the time of the crashThe prosecution and defense in the case are stuck in a dispute over whether there are legal grounds to compel Rachel Kayl 32 to unlock the deviceKayl was charged last May in Ramsey County District Court with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide two counts of second-degree manslaughter and one count of criminal vehicular operation The State Patrol says her Chevrolet Trailblazer was traveling between 77 and 85 mph before striking the teens’ vehicleBridget Giere 16 and Stephanie Carlson 16 died in the crash Samantha Redden 17 at the time was severely injured The three were on their way to school at the timeProsecutors already know from Kayl’s cellular records that she wasn’t talking or texting on her phone at the time of the crash But they don’t know if she was using the internet or an electronic application at the timeThat matters because prosecutors must prove that her conduct was either reckless or grossly negligent as they seek convictions when the case goes to trial in JulyKayl’s defense attorney Adam Johnson maintains in court filings that the state’s request that the court order Kayl to unlock her phone is untimely And Johnson says in violation of her Fifth Amendment rights prohibiting self-incriminationFurther he argues the case against Kayl should be dismissed claiming it was the other driver’s conduct — not his client’s — that caused the crashEXCESSIVE SPEED TO BLAMEThe collision took place around 7:30 am on Dec 1 2016 At that time the three Mounds View High School juniors were turning left from westbound County Road 96 onto Old Highway 10 on their way to school when their Chevrolet Equinox was struck by Kayl’s eastbound SUV on County Road 96The posted speed limit on that section of County Road 96 is 50 mphKayl’s "excessive speed" was the "primary contributing factor" in the crash the State Patrol concludedCELLPHONE RECORDSDespite the prominence of Kayl’s vehicle’s speed in the case prosecutors argue that her cellphone use at the time is also relevant as it could prove further negligence on her part legal documents say Furthermore the prosecution claims that its request to compel her to unlock the device for forensic evaluation is reasonable as "individuals involved in traffic accidents oftentimes are using mobile devices just prior to or during the time of an accident" according to their legal memoKayl’s defense attorney argues in a response that the court should deny the state’s motion arguing such an act would be in violation of the Rules of Criminal Procedure as well as state and federal constitutionsThe response takes particular issue with the request’s bearing on the Fifth Amendment which protects criminal defendants from having to potentially incriminate themselves through testimonyCiting case law the defense argues: "If the government may not resort to the cruel expedient of forcing evidence from a defendant’s lips the government likewise cannot resort to the similar expedient whereby evidence is forced from a defendant’s thumbs"Prosecutors called the defense’s characterization of the issue "erroneous""The state’s act of unlocking her cellphone in the manner proposed by the state will not cause her expressly or implicitly to be a witness against herself" the prosecution’s motion saidRather prosecutors are simply requesting Kayl perform "an act" it goes on to say pointing out that other acts such as securing a blood sample from a defendant to be used as evidence in a case are not protected by the Fifth AmendmentThe motion does acknowledge that the law governing the Fifth Amendment’s "applicability to digital devices protected by passcodes is in a state of evolution"DEFENSE CLAIMSIn separate legal filings addressing other aspects of the case Kayl’s attorney has asked the judge to dismiss charges against his client arguing they are based on "erroneous conclusions" made by the state’s crash reconstruction expertCiting a separate analysis by an expert hired by the defense Johnson argues that Redden failed to yield to Kayl who had a green light at the time when she turned through the intersection that day according to a legal memorandum he filed with the courtThe defense’s expert bases that assessment on video of the collision captured on a bus dash cam testimony of a witness to the crash and statements Redden made to an investigator about what had happenedIn her interview with authorities from the hospital Redden said the flashing yellow arrow had turned to green before she proceeded through the intersection to make her left turn court documents sayFurther she allegedly stated that she didn’t see any cars including Kayl’s before making the turnKayl’s attorney contends that the evidence shows that Redden actually still had a flashing yellow arrow when she proceeded into the intersection — a fact the state doesn’t dispute — but that she never bothered to check for oncoming traffic"There were no circumstances other than those of her own making that excused (Redden) from seeing (Kayl’s) vehicle approaching" the defense’s memo states "Redden heedlessly turned into the intersection without looking for opposing traffic and that is all there is to this situation"Given Redden’s failure to yield Kayl’s speed at the time of the crash is largely irrelevant the defense memo arguesAnd regardless it continues speeding alone does not constitute gross or culpable negligence and therefore the case lacks probable cause and should be dismissed the memo assertsPROSECUTION PUSHES BACKIn its counterfiling the prosecution contends that the defense is basing its analysis on the statements of a "traumatized child" shortly after the crash took placeIt adds that despite her memory of what happened the state’s crash reconstruction expert uncovered ample evidence at the scene to suggest that Redden was in fact lawfully yielding to oncoming traffic when she entered the intersection to turn and and was struck by Kayl’s speeding vehicle"Clearly (Redden) was looking Redden was looking and she saw (Kayl’s) vehicle approaching The only thing (Redden) was not able to see was (Kayl’s) speedometer which would have shown (her) traveling at tremendously excessive speeds" the state’s response saidHer decision to speed forfeited Kayl’s right-of-way at the intersection the filing continued"(Kayl’s) speed was the sole cause of this horrific crash and she is both grossly and culpably negligent" the counterfiling saidA hearing on the motions will take place April 23 when both sides will present arguments before a judgeThe Ramsey County attorney’s office declined to comment on the status of the pending caseKayl’s attorney said his client is anxious to get to trial"She is looking forward to her day in court where she can tell her side" Johnson said “The Gana boys were forced out of their enclave by OPWS Forces and they were running into the town for refuge. on a condolence visit. “I was called Baba Go
