Was there ever any talk about televising this trial?
Cameras aren't allowed in courtrooms so televising the trial would be very difficult. However, producers from 20/20 have been attending the trial and I believe they plan on doing an episode on the case in the near future.
Do you think Guandique will take the stand? Without DNA evidence, the only evidence linking Guandique is from the inmate's testimony. Wouldn't it only do more potential harm to the defense to call Guandique to testify? Not that I wouldn't want to see him found guilty but I'm wondering whether there are any positives for the defense in calling him to testify.
At this stage, I would be surprised if he took the stand. But he has the right to testify if he chooses. But most attorneys have this conversation with their clients, so we'll see.
I applaud the Washington Post's coverage of the trial. Will a complete trial transcript be available at some point?
Hmm. That's a good question. I'm not sure if the editors have considered publishing a complete transcript of the trial, but I will bring it to their attention.
Keith, you're doing a great job on this story but I'm also wondering why Sari Horwitz and Scott Higham haven't been involved again with the Chandra Levy story as it unfolds.
Thanks. Both Scott and Sari are working on other projects I believe.
I read that Gary Condit will be writing a book about the Chandra Levy story. Is this true? Do you kinow anything about it?
Grere eetings Fairfax. Yes, Condit is writing a book about his life and in particular his last year in office. He is a fascinating man and had a strong career in politics.
