Add comment on:Tony Pirone Might Require Extradition to Compel His Testimony at Mehserle's Murder Trial
Is Tony Pirone attempting to avoid testifying in Johannes Mehserle's trial for the murder of Oscar Grant? The Alameda County District Attorney's office has filed papers to force former BART police officer Tony Pirone (fired April 22nd) to testify in the murder trial of Johannes Mehserle, set to begin with jury selection next week. Apparently, Tony Pirone is no longer a California resident, and it appears from the court document that he currently resides in North Carolina as a hearing will be held in that state to compel Tony Pirone's appearance in the trial. The request ends with a statement that, due to Pirone's hostility towards the prosecution, "If necessary, the People of the State of California will extradite ANTHONY J. PIRONE in the event that he fails to appear."
