From what I hear - developing. No, not withdrawn, exactly. Gallegos couldn't justify it.
☛ ER Rape Crisis won’t testify at Gundersen trial
Humboldt Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of a motion to quash a subpoena directed at the North Coast Rape Crisis Center Wednesday.
Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos subpoenaed a rape crisis counselor who worked with a Jane Doe in former Blue Lake Police Chief David Gundersen’s trial after receiving a document allegedly authored by them.
After determining they did not author it, Gallegos said he didn’t need the witness to testify.
In a previous interview, Gallegos said he wanted the counsel to testify for “transactional” reasons and not to discuss what Doe 1 may have said in private sessions.
He compared it to the counselor testifying that they saw their patient at the supermarket.
