Jane Doe out of it, attorneys meet judge during break, bailiffs escort jury, medical personnel in courthouse

Medical staff in room where Jane Doe was during break.

Deputy District Attorney Brie Bennett walked in with one of the defense attorneys, Ms. Julia Fox saying "we need to talk to the judge about an emergency situation."

A key witness in the Jason Daniels case, Jane Doe who was on stand today for a few minutes could not walk by herself, seemed out of it, could not answer questions, claimed she was not on meds and alcohol, for at least a week and could not identify Daniels in court.

Jane Doe taken out on stretcher by City Ambulance staff and Humboldt Bay Fire employees.

Court is adjourned until 8:30 a.m tomorrow. Judge Timothy Cissna  repeated the admonition to jurors twice about not discussing the case and not looking at any TV, print or online reports, including headlines.

Court started this morning with testimony, opening statements, People's first two witnesses, DA Investigators Kyla Baxley and Tom Cooke.

Jane Doe was supposed to the next witness. She is the alleged victim in Count 1 and Count 2. She did not look like the same woman who testified at the preliminary hearing last year.

Daniels is charged with Count 1, sexual penetration by a foreign object (a felony), alleged victim Jane Doe #1; Count 2 Sexual battery, alleged victim Jane Doe #1 and Count 3, Unlawfully touching intimate part of other/abuse, alleged victim Jane Doe 2 (a misdemeanor).

Jury trial for Jason Daniels charged with off duty sexual assault charges set for June 15
Jury trial is now scheduled for June 15 largely to accommodate Jason Daniel's attorneys' schedule. Instead of his Bay area attorneys, Julia Fox and Steven Betz appearing with him in court today, Mr. Lawrence Killoran who is representing Daniels in a civil suit filed against him,  was present in court today with Daniels. As she has for all court hearings, Daniel's wife was with him.  Instead of Mr. Andrew Isaac who is prosecuting the case, DDA Brie Bennett was there today for the People.

In response to Judge Joyce Hinrichs,  time was waived by both parties. Mr. Killoran waived full reading of the complaint. Trial Confirmation is May 26 at 2 p.m. and Pre-Trial is May 12 at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 5.
