"Iddy" Biddy

Great story, what a tragedy to have his reputation ruined, his livelihood taken away, his freedom unfairly lost by unscrupulous prosecutors, at the time when he had the worst blow of all in losing his wife to murderers. I am so happy for him that he found his faith and changed his other problems, but I can understand why he will have bitterness over this for the rest of his life.

All of this "probably" and "could have" and "looked like." Man, hope I never get this kind of ignorance on any jury I may have to rely on....


After reading about both trials and watching the TV program "City Confidential" there is no mention if ANY drugs were actually stolen in this case. Obviously, this is a major detail since his defense was a botched robbery. Volpato claimed that the man who shot him filled a box with drugs before fleeing the store. What drugs were stolen?
