JUDGE CONCERNED WITH THREE WITNESS'S ACCOUNTS
Today, Assistant District Attorney Patricia Murphy, who prosecuted the DiGuglielmo case, and Lt. James Guarnieri of the Dobbs Ferry Police Department, testified that eyewitness Michael Dillon was not pressured to change his account of the events of October 3rd, 1996.
However, Judge Rory Bellantoni wondered why the police charged Richard DiGuglielmo with murder just hours after Dillon, Kevin O'Donnell and James White all said Campbell was swinging the bat and thus a direct threat to DiGuglielmo's father. "How many witnesses would it take for you to be concerned? Isn't any of this the least bit troubling to you?" the judge asked the prosecutors.
