Blue5011 I don't think he is arguing with your word trial he was just using it in the correct context. If you want to sound like you know what you are talking about when it comes to court cases and as you put it "trials" or omnibus hearings (blue you may need to google that one) please do a little research so you don't use the legal language in the wrong way. There was no trial like 123456 stated he pled guilty when it got close to going to trial. As far as the deportation he has to go through court cases which can take upwards of a year to get through. Immigration no longer deports for anything and everything like they used to even they get a semi fair trial to argue their points but usually felony convictions are an automatic trip out of the states after their immigration trial is over

123456 says: "First of all, blue, there was no trial for Koppala."

So you are going to argue w/ my use of the word "trial"? All of it was stage show prep and more prep. Deport the SoB, and be done w/ it.

First of all, blue, there was no trial for Koppala. There were several pre-trial hearings and motions, but the goon pleaded guilty before a trial date was even set. He won't be on a flight tonight; Immigration has to go through their process and paperwork. He can only violate probation in the US - India does not adhere to our laws. If he should come back on US soil, which I doubt he will, then he will have to register as a sex offender. If he has any smarts, he won't come back to the States.

I still don't understand why the Faribault County Attorney bothered to go thru a trial, when he knew full well the priest would be deported. Does Timmerman really think the good folks of India care a wit about a probation violation in the US? And IF we are going to deport him, there must be a flight he could be on tonight...

What did anyone gain here? The satisfaction of a trial? In twenty years all the parties involved will have forgotten about this incident.

If the priest REALLY did something egregious, jail him.
