Ted “There Is No Evidence” Simon’s Tired Mantra Misinforms Americans And Provokes Italian Hard Line

Posted by Peter Quennell


Above: Ted Simon’s objective and accurate statements on the case against Amanda Knox (Dec 2008)

Is Ted Simon already gone?

Has Ted Simon been kicked off the Knox-Mellas team?

Ted Simon gets no mention on Knox’s website among the credits to her Italian legal and Seattle PR teams. He seems to serve zero useful purpose to anyone that we can see. One could train a parrot to repeat “there is no evidence” for a smaller fee.

Ted Simon is certainly not helping Knox to get back to Planet Earth - in January Judge Nencini awarded her another year inside, and for continuing legal incautions Knox could certainly face more time.

As he seems utterly ineffective on all fronts, maybe it was high time that Ted Simon was gone.

If so five good reasons why

A year ago, he seemingly allowed this false felony charge to be included in Knox’s book. That malicious claim could result in more prison time for Knox, and possibly open Ted Simon to a malpractice suit for zero due diligence done on her book - or at least this.

Since then, Amanda Knox has shot herself in the foot at least four more times, with no obvious legal restraint.

Knox charged ahead with the insulting and inaccurate email to Judge Nencini, the insulting and inaccurate appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, the insulting and inaccurate first response to the Nencini Report, and the insulting and inaccurate website which Knox foolishly runs.

And seven more reasons why

Our interest is for justice for Meredith and her family, for Italian justice to be seen in a fair light, and for an end to this protracted PR-driven dead-end fight, in which Ted Simon has had some hand.
 
So let us look at some other ways in which Ted Simon’s lazy mantra, a substitute for a convincing alternative scenario of the crime, gives, or at least gave, Amanda Knox false hopes and will ultimately let her down.

1. Take a look at this absurd claim by Ted Simon which millions of Americans now, large numbers of lawyers, and many TV hosts can laugh off as simply untrue.

“There was no hair, fiber, footprint, shoe print, handprint, palm print, fingerprint, sweat, saliva, DNA of Amanda Knox in the room where Meredith Kercher was killed,” attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “That in and of itself tells you unassailably that she is innocent.” (CNN)

What exactly does that mean? Does Ted Simon even understand the scenario of the attack? This was a KNIFE attack, which does not usually see the exchange of a lot of DNA. There was the indisputable use of two knives in the attack - and Knox’s DNA is absolutely incontrovertibly on one.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

2. Meredith’s room was not fully swabbed for DNA because fingerprint dusting was the investigators’ (right) first choice. There were no fingerprints there - but there were none in Knox’s room either. Was she never there too?  Knox’s lamp was found in Meredith room, with no prints. It would not have got there without help from her. There was a Knox-size shoeprint in the room. It would not have got there without help from her.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

3. Throughout the rest of the real crime-scene, which Ted Simon would really, really like Americans to forget includes a corridor, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms as well as Meredith’s room, there is stacks of unshaken forensic evidence against Knox. Indisputably a partial cleanup occurred because some footprints in several chains had been disappeared.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

4. There is, if anything, a surfeit of possible motives (not that there is a requirement for certainty there), and certainly there is a surfeit of alibis. Knox clearly framed Patrick. She was totally unprovoked by police, and yet even after three years actually served for felony framing, she continues to perpetrate the great hoax that she was.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

5. Amanda Knox is ever more frantically claiming that Rudy Guede carried out the crime against Meredith alone, and yet there is zero question of that. Many myths spread about Guede are untrue.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

6. Raffaele Sollecito was absolutely incontrovertibly in the apartment during the attack - his own lawyers have failed to prove the print on the mat was not his. Absent Knox, it is inconceivable that Sollecito was there.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

7. Finally dozens of lawyers are saying that the extradition treaty with Italy is crystal clear. If due process to a conviction was followed - and the American Embassy in Rome monitored it and saw nothing wrong - Knox could be on a plane within weeks to pay for what was a very cruel crime.

Why does Ted Simon make no mention of that?

New mantras in light of above

Due to sudden problems with Ted Simon’s gibberish machine, we are happy to step up and provide these for free.

There was no hair, fiber, footprint, shoe print, handprint, palm print, fingerprint, sweat, saliva, DNA of Rudy Guede in the bathroom where there was a bloody footprint of RS and DNA of Knox,” attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “That in and of itself tells you unassailably that Guede did not do the crime alone.”

There was no hair, fiber, footprint, shoe print, handprint, palm print, fingerprint, sweat, saliva, DNA of Rudy Guede in Filomena’s room where the breakin was staged, though there was Knox’s DNA” attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “That in and of itself tells you unassailably that Amanda Knox is framing him.”

There was no hair, fiber, footprint, shoe print, handprint, palm print, fingerprint, sweat, saliva, DNA of Amanda Knox in the bedroom where she slept,” attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “That in and of itself tells you unassailably that Knox did not even live in the flat.”

Amanda Knox is thrilled. Thrilled!! Look for them soon on your local TV.

Also he REALLY should stop talking about the Hellmann appeal court outcome as if it says anything relevant for Knox’s situation today.

Did nobody think to tell him it was ANNULLED? Or that that was a bent court? Amazingly out of touch.

Ted’s the bagman for any money that might be left from the catastrophic advance on AK’s error-laced book.  If he’s gone then you can bet the money’s run out.

Interesting goings on in the Knox camp as they figure out that a) Raffaele Sollecito might pursue an independent defense strategy (duh) and b) his family dislikes and blames her for his state. Nell has the latest screen captures up here at dot net http://perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?style=6&p=120639#p120639 with threats to ‘dump his crazy family’, or they won’t fund raise for him, so there 😊

Thank you, Peter, before seeing the two faces of the same person (i.e., Ted Simon, he probably has more, depending on how much one can afford), I thought the world was a better place. Philadelphia (Simon’s workplace) is right across the river from Camden, NJ, the poorest and most violent city in the US (Philly itself is not exactly brilliant in either area, it’s nice, but ...), so either his crime “standards” are very high, or he’s so paranoid about avoiding poverty that his conscience doesn’t matter anymore.

Ted “Whack a mole” Simon.

A total and shameless mercenary if ever I saw one.

He, (like Frank) has been relatively awfully quiet just lately, perhaps he’s been fired too? (like Frank).

Simon was brought in as some sort of extradition expert I believe.

I recall he was involved in the crooked return home of Amanda Knox, maybe that was his only function at the time.

He does however contribute to the Amanda Knox fraud by his constant mantra of “no evidence”, so his other function is evidently to mislead the public through the media.
It is disgraceful that he is prepared to speak in public and state that only Merediths bedroom is the crimescene.

Whether or not Simon has been fired, he still owes some duties to Knox.

To now admit that his statements on behalf of Knox were False Statements could be actionable before his Licensure Boards.

His best professional-survival-option is a zealous Silence.

At the Gogerty Marriot website they give also the impression “Amanda is back, job done, case closed”.

Great comments above. Yet more helpful tips we can use.

Here are three more “unassailable” statements from Ted Simon’s wonderful gibberish machine. Ted Simon is welcome to explain to America and Italy and his own client Amanda Knox exactly how his machine got them wrong. 

There was no hair, fiber, footprint, shoe print, handprint, palm print, fingerprint, sweat, saliva, DNA of Rudy Guede in the bathroom where there was a bloody footprint of RS and DNA of Knox,” attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie. “That in and of itself tells you unassailably that Guede did not do the crime alone.”

@Pete

Wonderful way to show up the faux ‘logic’...

Hi SeekingUnderstanding

Yeah, Ted is really getting into his stride… they are added to the bottom of the main post too.

Clearly Ted Simon has never had any integrity and never will have any integrity. And what integrity he has is unreliable.

Pete - your 3 unassailables are hilarious..

Thanks for so brilliantly using our home-planet advantage.
