Hans Reiser Trial: Day Four
10:36 a.m.: Testimony begins today, but there's a delay. The attorneys, without jurors present, are haggling over the expected testimony of the Reisers' 8-year-old son.
The boy has taken a seat on the stand, and the jurors have filed in. The social worker is sitting next to the boy.
10:56 a.m.: The Reisers' son told prosecutor Hora this morning that he understands the difference between the truth and a lie. He said he's 8 years old, lives with his maternal grandmother in St. Petersburg, Russia. Hora asked him a number of questions to make clear to jurors that while he's young, he can answer many questions accurately.
