Again I looked for Mikey News and found none, just a note that he's
"Pending trial" with a past-due date. Any updates from those on the
scene? Also I'm looking for something I can attribute for a quote in
my news blog about the trial.

It was a mistrial.

http://peterfrickwright.com/trial/

So now they start over, but the case goes to the back of the line, so it
could be a while.

What was interesting is that it was finally revealed that the defendant
was offered a plea bargain of 120 days in jail and he turned it down.

On the surface it seems like an open and shut case since no one seems to
be denying that the attack took place. But just one sympathetic juror
who believes that the attack was provoked by the mountain bikers riding
on a road signed for no bicycles could cause another mistrial. After a
few mistrials the D.A. will give up.

I like the part about shoving a shank into the tire. The biker
deserved that much, if for no other reason than being an arrogant
asshole scofflaw.

This whole affair is nothing but a tempest in a teapot. Just to know any
single mountain biker is to detest the entire species. Bruce Jenson is
finally coming around to a correct appraisal of the situation. After all, he
tells us he does NOT drive his jeep off-road, only on roads however
primitive that already exist. He is to be credited with that much common
sense at least.

Hey Ed, I think you are confusing Bruce Jensen and Jeff Strickland.

I have to laugh! Mr. Sherman is absolutely correct. That is what I like most
about him. He has a memory for what is said on these forums like no one
else. He is truly a repository of lore for these cycling newsgroups.

I have never known Bruce Jensen to be anything but an asshole, but his
remark about mountain bikers being asshole scofflaws led me astray
momentarily.

Eventually Mikey's going to run out of money to pay his lawyer. I
think after the second trial so long as he isn't acquitted he will
take the 120 day plea bargain.

If he's found guilty then he doesn't get to take the plea bargain. If
it's another mistrial or a hung jury then he's got to hope that the DA
tires of the case and doesn't keep trying for a conviction. I think the
potential for a hung jury is pretty high because the defense only needs
to get one bicycle-hater on the jury.

In any event he's really already lost because a) UC can still ban him
from their land no matter what the outcome of the trial (Strawberry
Canyon and the East-West fire road where the incident took place), b)
he's spent a lot of money on lawyer fees, and c) he's already spent some
time in jail, and that jail is a very unpleasant place.

He's certainly learned his lesson and will not repeat the (alleged)
behavior that got him into all this trouble. Let's be happy for that.
