August 19, 1998
TRANSMITTED VIA FAX: (804) 582-2271
is a subpoena for your testimony on August 24, 1998 in Ronnie
Kimble's murder trial.
10:15 p.m. last night, I learned from Ron Kimble, Sr. that your name
had been removed from Mr. Panosh's witness list. Before last night I
fully expected that you would testify in Ronnie's case and now that
I have been told that you may not testify as a State's witness, I
must respectfully ask you to appear as a defense witness.
I am deeply
appreciative of your kindness to me in Ronnie's case on several
occasions and hope your attendance at the trial will not
inconvenience you. Although the subpoena directs you to appear in
Superior Court at 10:00 a.m. on August 24, please call my secretary,
Phyllis, and she will keep you informed as to precisely when your
testimony will be scheduled so you do not have to waste time. I
would also appreciate it if you would arrange to come by my office
before you are actually needed in court so that we can have a brief
discussion about your testimony.
Thank you very
much for your consideration in this matter.
John B. Hatfield, Jr.
