Just saw on Court Tv. Robert Blake will stand trial for killing his wife but in a surprise twist, they did grat him bail. 1.5 million dollars and very strict terms.

Don't know what to think about Blake...His story of what happened sounes hokey...but then she was blackmailing a number of men.....I'll have to watch the trial. See the evidence. Bad situation for all those invloved.
I can remember watching him on tV when I was a kid. Him and that white bird, remember?

His interview with Barbara Walters was very interesting. I feel sorry for the little girl too.

Yup, that was definitely Fred the Cockatoo.

I do feel sorry for his little girl. So sad.
But my gut feeling tells me that he killed his wife. I saw the interview and I think he has gone off the deep end. Now that he is out on bail, (and I hate to say this), I think he may harm himself.
I hope I am wrong on all counts.
(The above is my opinion only....please don't attack me.)

Current, I agree with you. The dude is so guilty it makes my head hurt.

Another thing. The bail wouldn't be so high if the prosecutor didn't have a damn good case. If they didn't have a solid case, he would have been out on bail long ago, and probably at a lesser amount.
I used to work in the detective unit in a police department......seen this before.
Hate to say it...but I predict that he will be found guilty.

Yep. I used to be a prosecutor and see some of the signs. There's no way the government would go forward on charges against someone famous without having all their ducks in a row (which you have to do for all cases anyway). He'll be found guilty; I don't think he has the money despite his acting gigs to hire the likes of Johnny Cochrane. (BTW, still CANNOT believe - years later - that OJ was found not guilty. :mad:)

Isn't bail also set relevent to the suspect? I mean, if they put a 1.5 mil bail on Bill Gates he'd be off to Switzerland on the next plane yelling back "keep my lunch money chumps!". Celebrities, whether they do or don't, are assumed I think to have big bucks.
Me, it'd be a matter of coughing up $2 and a few 10 cent off coupons no matter what I did.
Blake is a really weird case. I have the feeling he's guilty, but it's traditional in our country that a celebrity can commit a crime and walk off without jail. Blake has been in jail for a very very long time already, so does that mean he's innocent?

From what I understand, at least in my state, the judge can set whatever bail amount he wants. Celebrity or not.
But there may be a limit, don't know about the state that he is in.
My point is, Blake has been in jail for quite awhile now. Usually, when the charges are filed, bail is set, very soon after. There appears to have been some kind of lag in this case. I think Blake's lawyers did some fancy footwork to get bail for him now. But if the prosecutors didn't have one hell of a case, he would have been let out on bail LONG ago.
I really believe after seeing his interview, that he will never go to trial. I think he is "on the edge", and I don't think his ego will allow this to go further.
Did anyone who watched the interview watch his eyes when he was talking? Scary..
Again......this is just my humble opinion.
