An effort was made to obtain the defendant's portion of the trial transcript. Unfortunately, it had not been transcribed at the time of the case (the state of Arkansas did not appeal Overton's ruling). This meant that we would be paying page transcription charges, not just copying charges. However, the court reporter said that her request for the original shorthand record came back with a "not found" result. These materials have apparently been mislaid at the storage facility that the state of Arkansas uses for older legal records. We are trying to come up with ways to get a more thorough search done so that these materials can be transcribed.
