You never know what might happen after you click the publish button. In a post that appeared nearly 4 years ago, this site covered a piece of news that shocked the wine community on the suspected arson of a facility in Vallejo that housed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of wine. The latest developments (yeah I know, the San Francisco Chronicle got the name of this site wrong, I’m emailing them about it…) include comments made on this little blog by carlmwormwood who authorities say is actually the suspect, Mark C. Anderson, a.k.a “Joe Sausalito”. These comments will be included in testimony against Mark when he goes to stand trial.
Prosecutors said in recent court filings that they should be able to show the Internet postings – made at winexpression.com [edited for accurate spelling], a site geared toward oenophiles – to jurors because they revealed Anderson’s “consciousness of guilt.”
Here is an excerpt of the comments on this site (click for full comments):
So there you have it. It’s still pre-trial, but the facts are there, and this blog is now a part of this events history.
