Has these bits of additional info:
"In 1990 (Gene) Haynes was elected to office as the District Attorney serving Rogers, Mayes, and Craig Counties.
“I was warned calls would come in,” said Haynes. “I was told I should get acquainted with the case.”
Haynes read boxes of information on the case prior to taking office in January 1991. There were Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reports, a transcript from the preliminary hearing and photographs.
There were no trial transcripts because Gene Leroy Hart, the suspect tried for the crime, was acquitted.
Haynes said in the case of a conviction a transcript is made because there could be an appeal. In an acquittal, though notes are taken, no transcript exists."
So - no trial transcript....
Thanks for this info.
For those who don't know, of course, all trial proceedings are recorded (referred to by Haynes as "notes") so what this means is that a record of the trial exists, it's just not been transcribed.
Well, the entire pretrial transcript would be enlightening...
