Kincade Wants Onyemechara Trials Separated

The attorney for former City of Monroe Director of Revenue and Taxation Patrick Onyemechara (Ohn-ya-men-CHAIR-ra) wants separate trials for each of the 31 charges filed against him. Defense attorney Charles Kincaid said he wanted to sever the trials because of the potential for “confusion of evidence.”

At a hearing this morning in Judge Wilson Rambo’s Fourth Judicial District (Morehouse, Ouachita parishes) Court, the judge ruled that the attorneys should present authority for their motions within ten days and then argue their motions at a 9:00 AM February 24 hearing.

Trial is presently scheduled for March 21, 2011.

Today’s hearing was to address issues in a 11/9/2010 motion to continue filed by Kincade.

Another issue from the November motion was that a “bill of particulars” had not been provided by the prosecution.

In a response filed on 1/24/2011 by 4th JD Assistant District Attorney Neal Johnson, the state argued that the information requested by Kincade is not required by the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure Article 484 – Bill of particulars.

    This trial will affect many parts of the City of Monroe. There was a conspiracy with many city employees. Judge Wilson Rambo as well as other local district judges will have to recues themselves from trying Patrick Onyemechara because of their relationship with city employees. Even the district judges eating a free Thanksgiving meal provided by the city marshal would be construed as a conflict of interest.
    If Patrick Onyemechara’s bail is lowered and he is able to make bail, he will immediately leave for Nigeria. All conspirators in the city want this to happen because they are linked to Patrick Onyemechara.
    Know one knows how much money disappeared from the tax and revenue office, but it could be millions.
