Support Tina Anderson
Copy and display on your own blog (at least until after Ernest Willis stands trial, beginning on Monday).
Willis plead guilty to statutory rape charges on May 17th but will still stand trial for other charges including aggravated sexual assault on Monday, May 23rd. The plea will stand, even if there is a mistrial.
The Judge has ruled that Tina will not be permitted to state that Willis offered to pay for an abortion or to punch her in the stomach to induce a miscarriage, nor will Tina be permitted to use the word "cult" during her testimony. She may use the word "survivor" while testifying, however.
The Judge will rule by the end of the week on whether the 31 minute taped interview of Willis by the police will be admitted in court because of the repetition by the interrogating police officers that they believe Tina Anderson's testimony and that they disbelieve Wills.
