Chris’s trial November 6, 2014. Chris was eventually found not guilty according to Laura, which makes his failure to appear particularly painful, as this is a felony charge.
Seems Chris wanted to subpoena the jurors who were at his original trial, when he failed to show up. Christopher Robert, family of Walker… What a foolish person. The judge explains that the previous jurors are not going to be on the present venire. Judge explains that both sides have the opportunity to inquire if the jurors were present.
He also wants to call them as witnesses. The judge informs Chris once again that he can ask the jurors the question. As to witnesses, the Judge observes that noone has made an effort to issue subpoenas.
The judge remains cool and calm as he reiterates how jury selection is going to happen.
As to the bond and oath, Chris insists that the judge shows these documents, the judge declines.
“I understand your position, Sir” and I disagree with your interpretation.
“You may just sit there and be quiet if you prefer to do so.”
Prosecutor reminds everyone that Christopher Walker has not accepted the discovery from the prosecution.
Chris wants to wear his bracelet that identifies him as a prisoner in the hope that someone realizes that he has been incarcerated illegally.. Really….
It’s jury tampering that the prosecutor wants to tell her side of the story.
How could I be incarcerated when I am still innocent until proven guilty? Well, the statutes allow for that under probable cause determination.
The judge remains calm and professional and the prosecutor makes sure that everyone realizes that any jury tampering will be prosecuted.
“I object to that too”…. Judge “Thank you Sir” ROTFL
Charge: Interception of communications ORS 165.540
“I object, you pled not guilty for me”. You are committing perjury… Not very smart as the judge was protecting him.

4. I have given you a description of the charge. Is there anything that would create a bias?
- No hands
Chris Walker – I object to these procedures. I don’t consent to these proceedings. You have failed to provide your oath. I do not consent. You are committing fraud, you just committed perjury. This is an unlawful proceeding. I have no questions to ask because I am unlawfully incarcerated. That’s all I have to say.
Judge: Thank you, I take that as a statement that you have no questions for the jurors. ROTFL
Prosecutor: Is anyone going to have a hard time dealing with Mr Walker given his behavior so far.
Prosecutor: Sympathy and other emotions are to be ignored.
Prosecutor: No prior bias. Was anyone here on October 24th? The prosecutor is making sure that Walker’s question is asked… Appeal proof… Noone was in the court that day.
Various other questions about bias especially towards the police. Some exchanges about work starting late afternoon and other concerns.
Jurors return to jury room.
Walker: I object to this process. Judge: I understand Walker: Blah Blah Blah, no oath, blah, you are railroading me, this is all an unlawful process. Judge: Thank you sir that will be noted for the record.
Judge: Each side may remove three jurors of their choice.
Judge keeps going with his presentation, even when interrupted by Walker, he continues where he left of.
Do you have any challenges you wish to exercise. I object to this. Any challenges? I object to this… I take this as a no.
Once again sir if you have any jurors… I object…
Juror 92 is going to move into the seat. “I object to that”… Poor Chris, most of the proceedings are happening around him. Why do these magic incantations not work?…
Jurors are being seated… The suspense… Oath taken… @10:30 into the 5th video…
Now the jury instructions…
Absolute constitutional right not to testify and can not be used as an indicator of his guilt.
Absolute constitutional right not to present any evidence and can not be used as an indicator of his guilt.
The law will be presented, evidence will be presented, additional instructions will be presented. Apply the facts to the law, to reach the verdict and you must follow the law, whether or not you agree with it. You must also set aside any emotions and personal feelings.
Too bad there is no audio of the actual trial. I can only imagine why…
