Murder Suspect Asks To Show His Penis To The Jury To Prove He Killed His Girlfriend With His Large Pecker
A Florida man who has been accused of murdering his girlfriend in her bedroom is using his “big penis” as a defense.
Richard Henry Patterson, 65, admitted that he choked his girlfriend, Francisca Marquinez, 60, on Oct. 28, 2015, but he never said how. Nearly two years later, he man is now claiming that Francisca accidentally choked to death while performing oral sex, reports the Sun Sentinel. And he wants to show the jury his hog to prove it.
Patterson’s lawyer, Ken Padowitz, claims, in more eloquent terms, that the jury must take in his client’s meat popsicle for them to truly understand how it could be used as an accidental murder weapon.
“Dr. [Ronald] Wright, an expert witness and former Broward County medical examiner, will testify that … her death is consistent with being accidentally sexually asphyxiated during oral sex,” Padowitz wrote in the motion. “It is material and relevant. The view by the jury is essential for them to fully understand Dr. Wright’s testimony and the defense in this case.”
If the judge rejects that request, Padowitz said he’s considering making a mold of his client’s penis.
Clever defense, but there are allegedly a couple factors that indicate there may have been a motive. Marquinez’s neighbors said she was unhappy with their relationship and two days before she died, they were arguing, shouting at each other. She was allegedly trying to break up with Patterson. Also, according to arrest records, Patterson called his lawyer before police discovered the victim’s body. Marquinez had already been dead between eight and 24 hours.
Maybe the most damning, Patterson also told his daughter in a text message that he “did something bad.” He later told a friend, “I choked her. I choked Francisca.”
“He said he choked her,” said Padowitz. “He never said he strangled her.”
Semantics may be the key to this case. Sorry *semandicks.
