Recently, news reports have stated that Danny Heinrich and his team of
lawyers have requested that Heinrich’s recent pornography case be
moved out of the Twin Cities and into a federal courthouse in Minnesota.
Some sources believe that he and his legal team may even request that
the trial be moved out of the state. When spoken with, Attorney Joe Tamburino
stated that requests to move federal trials rarely succeed.
In addition, Heinrich and his legal counsel are requesting that various
factors of his case be thrown out, including the following:
- Various DNA tests
- Statements he made to investigators stating they would surely find child
pornography in his home and that he is a “dirty old man”
In response, Attorney
Joseph Tamburino of Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. stated that the evidence of Heinrich’s
case will undoubtedly be used against him since the “strongest evidence
you can use against any defendant is what’s found on them or their
property, or in their words.”
As of now, Heinrich’s attorneys argue that probable cause for the
search of Heinrich’s house did not exists and that his arrest was
unlawful. His legal counsel adds that as a result, the evidence found
during the search is invalid.
Other Cases Involving Danny Heinrich
This case is not the first involving Heinrich. In fact, much evidence shows
that he is considered a suspect of interest in the disappearance of 26-year-old
Jacob Wetterling and an unsolved sexual assault case involving a group
of boys in Painesville during the 1980’s. Additionally, he was found
to be linked to the abduction of Jared Scheierl. However, due to the statute
of limitations, prosecutors cannot charge Heinrich for that particular
abduction or assault.
