I'd take the trees to live and Updick to get less charges or even freed. This guy is super stupid anyways and is bound to get run over by a garbage truck at some point.

Saw the headline this morning and had to do a double take at it. Good news.

Would be some shit if they made it eh?

I wonder if the real easy winter helped out?

What an oddly specific threat.  You don't happen to have family in the waste disposal business in Lee County do you?

You meet a man on the Oregon Trail. He tells you his name is Terry. You laugh and tell him: "That's a girl's name!" Terry shoots you. You have died of dissin' Terry.

... and then I'm sure the driver of the garbage truck would back up, just to verify if he hit something on accident.

The Lee Co. DA's father is a lawyer I deal with on occasion.  He says it won't matter if the trees live, they are still going forward.

I figured "intent" would apply here.  I know criminal mischief and theft are apples and oranges, but we charged a guy with theft 1st last week because he stacked a shit ton of property next to the front door in the residence.  He was about to make entry back into the residence to retrieve the property when a family member of the home owner pulled into the residence and scared him off. 

Again, I know the charges are world's apart, but intent is all the same.  Harvey very well intended to kill the trees and admitted his intention.  I'd be shocked if he isn't convicted.

That, and I don't guess you have to prove he killed them to prove he damaged them.  If I key your car, you can still drive it with the damage, or get it fixed.   Auburn has spend a shit ton of money "fixing" the trees.

Can someone else verify the ocm.auburn.edu link for the oaks update is no longer available. I can't seem to connect to it.

Taken down because of the gag order with the Updyke trial. Stupid that it applies to the health of the trees as well imo.

Quote
The media gag order on persons involved in the Harvey Updyke case apparently extends all the way to the oaks caretakers themselves. No more roller coaster status reports. No more canopy rides. No more “come check out the Toomer’s tomato…”
Auburn University’s official Toomer’s Oaks updates page has even been taken down.
Meanwhile rumors on the oaks condition—and the condition of their possible replacements—continue to circulate.
The gag order is expected to stay in effect throughout Updyke’s trial, which resumes October 1.

That picture would hurt my stomach a little less if Updyke's dessciated, crow picked, toilet papered, drawn and quartered corpse was hanging from one of those branches...

I hope he gets cornholed on an hourly basis in prison.
