Q. And no women that you can recall enter or exit? I mean the frequency you have of entering into that unit is the fifty-year-old man and the seven or eight year old boy, then B standing at the door and I am assuming between the frequency of Mr. BZ standing at the door and the seven or eight year old and the fifty-year-old man entering or exiting, you never saw one female ever. Would that be fair to say?
A. For a period of time, I can't say that I never saw one female ever for five months.
Q. Let's talk about the period from April of 2000 to Septemberof 2000.
A. For that period of time, I can't tell you that I never saw one female walking in and out that building.
Q. But there was no female of any frequency coming to the house; is that correct?
A. Not with any great frequency.
Q. Would you see a female like maybe once or twice?
A. That's possible. I can't recall for sure.
Q. Do you know what the females looked like?
Q. Do you know what they looked like?
A. I don't remember.
Q. Anything in particular? Anything particular that made them remarkable or outstanding or significant?
Q. What color was their hair?
A. I don't remember anybody specific.
Q. But would you remember like a tall blonde, a short redhead?
Q. Do you remember the color of the hair of the women thatcame into the the house.
A. I am just saying I won't say I never saw a woman enter or exit that place during those months. But I am not saying I can think of anybody specific.
Q. When you saw the women enter, was there anything specific
about them like the color of their hair?
Q. I mean if someone said describe the woman who came in who went to the house, you would just say it's a woman and that's it?
THE COURT: I take it your testimony is, you are not saying there was a woman entering?

LANDLORD’S ATTORNEY: You won't say you never saw. I am trying toget this straight.
THE COURT: If you speak Spanish, you can do that real easy.
LANDLORD’S ATTORNEY: Q. How about this. Would there be more than
one person who you won't say you never saw? How about that?
A. I don't speak Spanish.
Q. Touche. But what makes you think there was any women you saw?
A. I am just saying -- all I am saying is --
A. -- that during those months, I saw some people with frequency, and I won't say that nobody else ever went through that door, whether or not I saw them.

I Didn't See Anyone and if I did, I wont say anything...
Posting has been a little light here for a while, mostly because I was gearing up for a few trials. Anyways, I thought I would throw this up in honor of wacky testimony that can come up during a trial. This particular bit came to me via one of the listservs I am on.
