Legal professional Basic asks choose to dam DNA testing in one other Orange County demise penalty case

“As we have noted, seven witnesses testified that Sireci admitted to them that he killed Poteet,” Browne said. “… Indeed, even at trial the identity of Sireci as the person who killed Mr. Poteet was not in dispute. Defense counsel argued the State had not proved first-degree murder, but conceded that Sireci was guilty of third-degree murder. Given these facts, Sireci’s successive attempt to obtain additional DNA testing, had such a request been properly filed, should have been denied.”
