Vanguard Analysis Part I: Ajay Dev's Appeal

Sunday, March 24 Davis, CA. The Davis Vanguard a news agency covering local issues in Yolo County & Davis has released the first in a series of three articles on Ajay Dev's Case.

"Three years after the conviction of Ajay Dev for the multiple counts of rape of his adoptive daughter and his sentence of 378 years to state prison, he and his attorney have filed their appeal.

Their appeal attacks both the facts of the case as well as the legal rulings used by Yolo County Judge Timothy Fall that the defense claims denied Ajay Dev of his right to a fair trial.  This includes most notably the inclusion of the alleged victim's interpretation of a 50-minute pretext call that meandered between English and Nepalese, the judge's failure to properly instruct the jury on the law, and the judge's refusal to allow potentially exculpatory evidence.

What follows is a three-part series.  The first part, today's article, covers the defense's account of the facts of the case, including critical areas that the court got wrong in the original 2009 trial."
