Man charged waives right to a jury
Utah Country prosecutors need to be cautious. Jepson is guilty, but I think it
will be difficult to prove that without a body (especially without a jury).
While a jury will allow its emotions to come into play, a judge will review the
law more carefully and find insufficient evidence. I agree that Jepson needs to
be kept in jail, but at what cost? Don't rush to trial.
Very well said, don't let this guy off. Tell us where the body is so there can
be some closure. Our prayers are with the Davis'.
Interesting spin on the trial by judge idea. He may also be looking for a leaner
sentence in the long run, knowing he can't run from the consequences. There
needs to be a gag order on spectacular trials - such as this. Wait until it all
It has been 13 1/2 years. How long should they wait - oh yeah, then there is
that whole right to a speedy trial thing.
Well at least a judge will not rule with his feelings. Everyone knows a jury is
easy to sway with emotion - not a judge.
I would really like to see all of you "experts" read and study the whole case
and then "pass your judgement". If you even had a glimmer of this entire thing
you'd shut your yap(s). Thank God in heaven our society doesn't let just any
opinionated twerp be a judge.
If he (Jeppson) knows something but didn't kill her why doesn't he try to clear
himself and let the Davis family have some closure??? To let it go this long is
I have followed and studied the case for years and they'd better not let Jeppson
off. I also knew Jeppson in the years he was pretending to be a husband and
father. Its about time he becomes a man and opens his yap and quits lying about
what he really knows.
They are simply trying to close a case - unless of course you have some
information that hasn't been presented to the court. Because so far, they
haven't even presented the when, where, why, and how on this case.Being this is already 13 years old, I can only assume that having a bench
trial as opposed to a jury trial will take less time and money. I wonder what
the reason would be to deny such a move.
Jury or not, I pray the Davis' do get some closure. Imagine the pain of all
these years, waiting and wondering. I really hope there is some justice in this
case and true closure, and that the Davis' get the answers they need.
I can't imagine the pain the family has to go through everyday. Why does it have
to take this long...
