convicts him it will also decide his Madison a McKenna Memorial Hospital physician who treated the said he could face further surgery and complications into adult hood from his Do you have an clue to scar tissue or nerve as to whether the boy will suffer any long standing effects as a result of the injury codefense counsel Pat Moran 1 cant say but I think theres a significant Lowry In the prosecutions sum attorney Von Bunn went right after She walked across the stood in front of the defendant and pointed at This is what a child abus er looks man right here Bunn Hes not just a child but some body who engaged in the sadistic torture of a little boy a little boy you met The alleged torturous acts lasted over the course of a beginning with the genital which went untreated for three Bunn could have caused infection or gan She pointed to enlarged photos of the boys injuries that were projected onto a The boy told you who did Bunn As to the belt Bunn told jurors that three neighbors witnessed one of them when Fierro allegedly held the boy outside while his Michele beat him at least 25 times with a leather May pleaded guilty in June and was sentenced to three years in state At they thought they were beating a Bunn Two neighbors called 911 and New Braunfels police We have to thank God for that beating that Bunn Because if it hadnt hap nobody would have known what happened to Bunn acknowledged that the boy hadnt initially given investigators all the details of what hed been saying he only did so later when he felt Some she he had wavered on or couldnt Sometimes the witnesses had disagreed on other The defense wants this lit tle boy to remember every little thing he told every sin gle Bunn How reasonable is that He has never one time changed his Raymond Fierro N He said Ray put him in the doghouse in front of his house everybody could see The night he was hurt in was outside with no clothes He said he was threatened with a by the He was beaten by the He was tied to a He showed Was it discipline or some medical treatment for his It was part of the sadistic torture this man put him In the first part of the defenses final Moran pounded away at the prosecutions charging Bunn and cocounsel Ed Springer had only presented part of the Their case is a case of Moran I would submit to you that when a man is on trial for his given what we know about wrongful convictions in this it is not nitpick ing when we point out the inability of a witness to tell the same story Moran described the kinds of injuries a leather belt can The defenses theory about the genital injury is it was accidentally caused by the boys mother when she was belting The three witnesses who saw the beating the night police were called are Moran pointing to inconsistencies in their sto Theres something very creepy about whats going on he The testimo ny was full of Defense attorney Anthony Cantrell completed the argu saying that all the details about the the the bed and so on were brought by the prose cution without charges they could have filed as a way of prejudicing the jury against his Theyre red herrings to make you prejudiced so you dont consider whats before Cantrell The attorney added that some of the horri fied by the boys were also prejudiced against Fierro and looking for someone to make Even the doctors and nurses were biased by the sight of these Cantrell They want not prosecu The boy lied in his testi Cantrell said trying to protect his mother by blaming her He said he lied to his He lied in He lied to his nurses and case and I hate to say but he lied to Cantrell The courageous part for you now is to do the right thing to consider the evi The prosecution has not met its burden of proving this case beyond a reason able
