      David Westerfield was accused of the murder of a little next door neighbor girl in California. In the trial the prosecution showed a violent video tape containing child pornography (proving that he had child pornography in his possession, a misdemeanor offense) to the jury. It was also stated that due to trace evidence that the crime was committed in Westerfield's RV trailer. The prosecution presented what appeared to many viewers as a weak case and yet Westerfield was subsequently convicted of possession of pornography, kidnapping and murder by the jury's unanimous vote. The defense had presented a solid case that the victim and the victim's family had been to Westerfield's house and that trace evidence was the normal result of familiarity. There was also very little evidence that the victim had ever been in Westerfield's home or car that would support a kidnapping charge. What, then, does Westerfield's writing indicate?
