One of the lewdness charges stems from a 2004 incident, while the others are related to the videotape, the court said. Chester Stiles was overwhelmed by the public opinion in the case.
His Attorney, from 2007 public defender Jeff Banks said "I think he's a little out of it," What a cop out, he wasn't out of it in the video's while molesting that baby. What was he out of is what I want to know?
This public defender needs to step back and look at what he's defending. Please don't give me crap about how everybody is entitled to a fair trial. Where was the FAIR when that baby needed it.
Opening statements were heard Monday in the trial of Chester Stiles who is accused of sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl and videotaping everything.
"Ladies and gentleman the hardest part of this case will have to listening to a young child describing sexual abuse and to view a videotape of sexual abuse of an even younger child but in so doing you will have absolutely no doubt of the defendant's guilt," said Mary Kay Holthus, prosecutor.
Stiles is facing 22 felony charges, including 21 carrying life sentences. Stiles is also accused of molesting a 6-year-old girl, who is now 11 years old. She was the first witness to take the stand after the opening statements. She no longer resides in Las Vegas. The girl's mother also took the stand and said her daughter seem very scared of Stiles the day after the alleged assault.
Stiles spent the night at the alleged victim's home because he was dating a family friend who was staying in the home. Stiles was only in the home for one night.
The toddler, who was also allegedly assaulted by Stiles, has told authorities that she has no memory of anything happening.
The case gained nationwide attention after the videotape surfaced after being discovered in the desert in Pahrump and a nationwide manhunt was initiated for Chester Stiles.
