Wone conspiracy trial to continue

By Washington Post editors

The judge hearing the Robert Wone conspiracy trial has denied a motion for a full acquittal on Thursday, meaning the proceedings will continue, Crime Scene reports.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz dismissed charges of tampering with evidence against two of the defendants, Dylan M. Ward and Victor J. Zaborsky. But she ruled that all the other charges will stand.

Ward, Zaborsky and Joseph R. Price, also have been charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Those charges will stand, as will the tampering charge against Price.

Stay with Crime Scene for more details.

A Fast-Paced Science Fiction Thriller Set During One of History’s Most Significant Events -- The Assassination of John F. Kennedy

John Michael Patrick delivers an action-packed and provocative sci-fi thriller in Conspiracy?

It’s the early 90s and John and Tammy are a young couple who’ve got it all—successful careers and a wonderful life together.

The two decide to celebrate one night after John receives a great job offer that puts him at the top of his computer career. On their way downtown, a thunderstorm springs up and lightening surrounds their car. A high piercing noise nearly deafens them and a brilliant light surrounds their car. The couple are knocked unconscious.

When they awaken, they find themselves in Dallas, Texas in the turbulent 1960s. The two began a race against time to stop Lee Harvey Oswald before he kills the President. John is prepared to kill Oswald before he delivers the fatal shot to Kennedy, but is there a second gunman? Perhaps the reputed shooter behind the grassy knoll? Armed with a video camera, they record evidence that shows that Oswald did not act alone

But the Feds and local authorities don’t want to hear what they have to say or see the evidence they have—they suspect John and Tammy have something to do with the murder and the two are on the run before being captured, arrested, and convicted.

Although evidence points to them being involved, other clues show the impossibility of their having anything to do with the crime. Will they be convicted of a crime they couldn’t have possibly committed? Can they prove their conspiracy theory to the authorities, and can they ever return home again?

Blending sci-fi thrills and historical narration, Patrick’s novel is like a freight train—a nonstop ride with twists and turns that takes the reader from the computer age of the 1990s to the turbulent 1960s. The result is a wonderfully captivating and satisfying read.
