I found out today, that the man that I listen to every morning on talk radio, Greg Garrison, twenty years ago, was one of the three chief prosecutors in the trial against Mike Tyson.
Who knew, that twenty years ago, while living in Portland, Oregon, as I was watching the man who was prosecuting that national case, would be the same man that I would be listening to every morning on a Conservative talk radio show, now?
But going back twenty years now, to that day, on February 10, 1992, in the Marion County Courthouse. Michael Gerard Tyson is on trial for Rape, criminal deviant conduct, and confinement. The chief defense lawyer were Kathleen I. Beggs, Vincent J. Fuller, and F. Lane Heard. The chief prosecutors were David Dreyer, J. Gregory Garrison, and Barbara J. Trathen. The judge was Patricia J. Gifford.
The trial lasted from January 26th to February 10th of 1992. It ended with a guilty verdict and a sentence of 10 years in prison.
The trial was saturated with
“titillating accounts of sex and violent assault and was eagerly followed by fans and foes alike, although subsequent events would return him to the headlines.”
The man that I listen to every morning on the Greg Garrison show on WIBC delivered a ringing indictment of the defendant when he said, “This man is guilty of pinning that 18-year-old girl to a bed and confining her…. callously and maliciously raping her even though she cried out in pain.” Mike Tyson Trial: 1992 – Brutal Attack
After trying to find the full indictment by Greg Garrison, and not finding it, I went back to the original article, linked above, and read it finding out that Tyson served three years with four years probation.
This is just a short post, that I felt was interesting because of the relationship to the man that I listen to daily and the trial, twenty years ago. Lawyer Greg Garrison of the Garrison Law firm here in Indianapolis.
