117. there's a big difference between 'she hit him' and the actual incident
Edited on Fri Jun-16-06 07:57 PM by bigtree
as described by the Representative. She says it was inadvertent, unintentional. The Grand Jury must have agreed. If they found that she simply 'hit him' they would have allowed the indictment.
