A # RON PERLEBERG, was the part time deputy reserve who heard Yorie's confession in the hospital room, coming out from major anethesia.


I was telling about Yori when he talked about the shooting. And he had mentioned that he had shot at that man in the white shirt by the Ram charger. And, then he turned to look at his dad. And, then Yori said that he was hit. And then--I'd mentioned that well, you have that cut under the chin, sideways cut on the chin, that explains how you got that cut. And, then he again mentioned to me. He said, I could have got it afterwards cause I was shot several times after laying on the ground.


As far as the notes, this is the last, the 16th is the last day I really talked to him in detail. Then he talked to the marshalls in the and our chief deputy. And, from then on he never said anything more. After that he was a lot more coherent.


I don't remember now. Yeah, there was some lawyers that come up. That's right. After he gave his statement though--on the 16th he just kind of quieted down. I think he started realizing that maybe I don't want to talk too much.


You know I don't recall that. They read him his rights. They made the arrest there. But, I don't recall any areignments going on in the hospital, no.


I would work normally from one o'clock to nine o'clock. One o'clock in the morning to nine o'clock in the morning.


The first night I went about ten o'clock (nine/ten o'clock) and started then. But once we got on the schedule, I just stayed on the one to nine.


No, tell the truth they never bothered him much at all, execpt they came up that day with our deputy Jack Miller. Otherwise they didn't really bother us at the hospital.


Nothing other than really that he was very devoted to his father. That was first with him.


No. No.


No. Just for testifying. That was it.


I sat through some of the trial.


That's tough. When we got down there--before we went to the trial, we went down and, we went through it all with the prosecutors. Lynn Crooks and Dennis Fisher. We went through a lot of it. And, they gave you instructions of court room procedure, and all this. I'd never been in a big trial before. And, so in a way I was nervous. And, it's differnt going in there you can confront the whole family more or less. To testify against a man that, you know, if he's found guilty he's going to be in prison. I kind of felt sad for him in a way because he had a wife and young children. And, so I could reflect on that. I though, well, I'll just tell what I know and that's it. As far as when the trial is over, I really didn't feel like we won, or anything. To me it was a bad situation all the way around. I had to feel sorry for Yori because, I knew he was caught-up in his father.


I'm sure Yori did just by me talking to him in the hospital. When he was partially sedated, he could could come out and tell that he did it. To me that's more honesty than when you're fully coherent and know how to cover it up.


Not really, never got bothered by anybody. It's just something they let go. It happened. It's over.


Not really. No. As far as the public opinion, I don't think there was really hard feelings one way or the other.


Not really. I guess the only thing that I thought was interesting was that each one of them had their own lawyer. Yori had a lawyer. Scott Fall had a lwyer. His mother had a lawyer.And, it got to be really time consuming that way, 'cause you had to relay your whole story to each one of them. And, I felt like after the second one, that this is getting tough because you could start to forget some of this after a while you keep telling it over and over again. But, anyway it didn't happen.


Oh, yes well that's a good lawyer. And, they were good lawyers. I think they were well represented.


I would say so yeah.


Well, you can recute the judge, but the story is still the same. Facts are facts.

No. I guess when you called--can I remember all this. It was some years ago. But it does some back pretty good once you start talking about it. I can picture the whole thing again.
