State Rests in Callie Long Retrial

 

The state has rested in the retrial of Lubbock Realtor Callie Long.   Tuesday, the defense will begin calling its witnesses to the stand.  Long is on trial for failure to stop and render aid.

Antwon Alexander took the stand Monday, and tearfully remembered the night he saw his friend Brett Walrath get hit by a car.  Alexander was riding his bike alongside Walrath the night of the accident. The judge even called a brief recess because Alexander grew so emotional remembering that night.

Alexander testified that there wives begged them to not ride their bikes so late at night, on Aug. 27, 2003. The wives asked them to wear helmets, and Walrath jokingly replied "We've been riding bikes this long and have not had an accident."

Alexander then testified he told Walrath to move to the shoulder of the road moments before he was struck by Long's sedan. He said the vehicle never stopped.

Earlier Monday afternoon at special request the defense called their first witness a forensic engineer.  He told the jury there was no moon the night of the accident.

The engineer also said that after collecting data, he determined there was no way Long could have avoided hitting Walrath.

The prosecutor says Long is still guilty of being intoxicated and not stopping to render aid. It was later found Long had a blood alcohol level of .13, that's one and a half times the legal limit.

The trial will resume Tuesday morning, and there is still no word if Long will testify.
