Defense wants car’s computer evidence thrown out from deadly Bayshore crash case

TAMPA, Fla. — Attorneys for the two teens accused of drag racing on Bayshore Boulevard and killing a mother and daughter are trying to get key evidence thrown out.

The black Mustang, investigators say hit and killed Jessica Raubenolt and her 1-year-old daughter, has a computer system police took as evidence in 2018.

But an attorney for the teenage driver says police did not include that computer system in their warrant.

“The infotainment telematics system was taken out of the vehicle by the police, downloaded, data extracted — something they didn’t even ask to do,” said defense attorney John Fitzgibbons.

The system syncs up with the driver’s cell phone and could be key in showing where the car was and how fast it was going.

Raubenolt was pushing her daughter in a stroller across Bayshore when the Mustang, driven by Cameron Herrin, hit them.

Investigators say he was racing a

Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, speaks to the media at a press conference held in the back parking lot of Four Seasons Total Landscaping on November 7, 2020, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On Sunday, Giuliani and another attorney for Trump, Sidney Powell, spoke with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo to discuss allegations of widespread voter fraud during the 2020 election.

Election officials use Dominion Voting Systems in 28 states, including several key battleground states. Members of Trump’s legal team have alleged that the company uses voting software that can be controlled by operators overseas to “steal” elections, much as they alleged the election was stolen from Trump.

Banning Porn Is a Bad Idea. There Are Other Ways To Improve the Internet

It’s 2020, and some conservatives are still hellbent on banning online porn.

Matt Walsh, a Daily Wire columnist and a culture warrior if there ever were one, wants the state to “have a role” in regulating adult content. Sohrab Ahmari, op-ed editor of the New York Post, insists that adult content “isn’t free speech—on the web or anywhere.” Newsweek‘s own opinion editor, Josh Hammer, has lamented at First Things that “today’s self-proclaimed liberty-minded ‘conservative’ vanguard defends licentiousness by invoking the mantle of freedom.”

And writing on the other side of today’s “Debate of the Week,” Terry Schilling, executive director of American Principles Project, has spent a good portion of his career discussing his concerns about adult entertainment and, more specifically, access to it.

As everyone is aware by now, I am a constitutional conservative. I am a Christian. I am an occasional columnist at The Federalist, whose
