I saw him and him taking turns forcing themselves inside her mouth. – For the record, the witness has identified the defendants Ronnie Ellis and Juan Flores. Who else did you see? – The other defendant. – William Reeves. – He was holding her down. – What did you do next? – I went home. I know I should have called the police, but I didn’t.

I will never forgive myself for that. – Thank you. – Before the night in question, when was the last time you’d had a drink, Mr. Nelson? – Almost five years. – Is it possible a relapse like that could’ve affected your memory? – I know what I saw. I learned how to function while drunk a long time ago. – Did you ever describe the suspects to the NYPD before they were arrested? – No, I waited too long to come forward. – When you found out that your friend had been seriously injured, did you feel bad? – Yes. – Bad enough to positively ID whichever suspects NYPD had in custody, even though you were too drunk to remember what they actually looked like? – Objection.
