Below are excerpts from Mac’s filing on Feb 17 (the paragraphs below are not sequential, they were pulled from different parts of the filing)--
Jeffrey MacDonald has maintained his innocence for over forty years. The Government has consistently fought any effort on MacDonald‘s part to prove that intruders were responsible for the murder of his family – even now when modern scientific advances could aid in conclusively proving, once and for all, that MacDonald has been convicted of a crime he did not commit.
When the IPA was enacted, Congress made it clear that it intended for the courts to take full advantage of DNA testing technology in the search for justice. DNA evidence can confirm guilt, exclude a defendant from suspicion, identify the actual perpetrator(s), or, at the very least, cast serious doubt as to a defendant‘s guilt due to the redundant appearance of another‘s genetic materials.
MacDonald asserts, under penalty of perjury, that he is actually innocent of the Federal offense for which he is currently serving a life sentence.
Boy is that rich, Mac has, once again, committed perjury. That has happened hundreds of times, so it is no big deal for Mac to perjure himself.
As far as DNA evidence showing that another person was injured in the apartment, Mac NEVER said that he injured any of his imaginary assailants. The fight took less than 10 seconds according to HIS statement.
The defense has already called out who the perpetrators are, Greg Mitchell and Helena Stoeckley, and none of the hairs matched them. Nor will any of the blood match theirs.
Is the defense so dumb that they really think that some stray DNA will eradicate all the physical evidence that showed that mac was lying and that showed that he was a murderer? Like stray DNA will change the imprints of his pajama pocket cuffs on the bed sheet that mac used to transport the bodies.
Wow, they are just truly clueless. How can supposedly smart people be that dumb?
The Government argues that the jury’s verdict in the original trial somehow demonstrates the irrelevance of the DNA test results obtained in recent years. As DNA testing was not available during the original trial, the jury was unable to include in its determination the fact that unsourced hairs were found at the crime scene.
Yeah, as if an unsourced hair would have changed the jury's mind. They jury would have forgotten that there were bloody footprints in Colette's blood make by mac exiting Kris's room. And that Colette's blood was on the pajama top before it was torn, and on the pocket before it was torn off. I am just amazed at the tunnel vision of the defense. Common sense (which they don't have) should have shown them that they are just spinning their wheels.
