The Protection of Ashton Davis #2
Dane County ADA Corey Stephan made a production in court that he was providing all booking photos related to Ashton Davis. Stephan was simultaneously claiming that there was no evidence in the State’s possession linking Ashton Davis to any “Lic Squad”. Both representations were in bad faith.
First, Stephan was then withholding, and would continue for some time to withhold, text messages in his possession where Davis and Fowler greeted each other with their “Lic Squad” status. When this evidence was finally revealed, Stephan’s justification was that the evidence of them claiming “Lic Squad” status was not evidence of them being connected to a Lic Squad. While the court recognized the absurdity of Stephan’s position, that is as far as the court has been willing to go.
Second, Stephan was also withholding a booking photo (Attachment #62) that shows Davis has tattooed on one arm “Lic” and tattooed on the other arm “Squad”. Here again, Stephan claimed that this photo is not evidence of Davis having any connection to a purported Lic Squad. Again, while the court recognized the absurdity of Stephan’s position, that is as far as the court is willing to go.
It gets even worse.
