DAY 3 OF WRONG WAY TRIAL WINDS DOWN

072913 TRIAL FOR WRONG WAY DRIVER FIRST DAY.Still004Just after 5:30 pm Day 3 of the wrong way driver trial of Nicole Baukus wound down. The day had several experts testify including Woodlands Trooper Mike Chapman. Chapman who has been with DPS starting out in the Drivers License has progressed rapidly. After becoming a trooper he was certified in all six categories of accident investigation and is an also an instructor for other troopers in crash investigation.

He explained how from the “Black Box” in the victims vehicle he was able to determine they reacted one half second before impact with only enough time to let off the accelerator. At that point they were moving more than 200 feet per second.

Texas Ranger Wendi Wakeman demonstrated on prosecutor Warren Diepraam how she swabbed Baukus for DNA when she arrived at the Montgomery County Jail with Trooper Jay Smith after being released from the hospital.

A analyst from DPS explained how she removed the air bag from the Baukus vehicles drivers side and found Baukus’s blood on it as well as the arm rest and the left sock embedded in the floor board of her truck.

One again the number 21 came up. This time it wasn’t in reference to the number of drinks Baukus had but the chances of the DNA not being hers. The analyst said the chances were 1 in 2 sextillion that the blood was not a match for Baukus. When asked what that number even looked like she said there were 21 zero’s after it. (2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000).

Dr. Field with Hermann Hospital took the stand telling of the injuries he treated on both Baukus and Porras. He said Porras, upper jaw was shattered as was the bone and him losing all his upper teeth when the dashboard hit him in the face. He also spoke of his other neck injuries and having to continue going through surgeries. Dr. Field said Baukus had some fractures in her foot and other abrasions. At the time he did not think anyone had told Baukus that she had killed two people as she was laughing. He was shocked when he broke the news to her and she laughed.

Video from “On the Rox” was also released today. We have edited it down from over 6 hours on 15 cameras to one camera in 20 minutes showing her taking each drink. Also at the 16 minute mark you see her leaving the club staggering across the parking lot.

The trial will begin at 9 am Thursday and MCPR will once again be there.
