STEPHEN FISCHER'S TESTIMONY:
Stephen Fischer is a 911 Center Technician and he was called to the witness stand to substantiate, explain, and present exhibits related to activity at 375 Roxborough Road around 8 p.m. on March 14, 2012. Fischer testifies specifically to what Judge Randall describes as, "...the timing of the 911 calls, the motion sensor alarm, the ADT Security alarm notifications, and the CAD reports related to what occurred inside the residence at 375 Roxborough Road on March 14, 2012."
Most notable in this testimony appears to be the report of not one but two ADT Security alarms at that home; the first being a front door burglar alarm that was also an audible alarm, the second included a motion sensor alarm from the same ADT Security system.
13WHAM News obtained the recordings of two calls, from two different ADT representatives, to the 911 center that evening. Mr. Fischer states the following in court when asked by McNair's lawyer:
Q. Mr. Fischer, approaching you and handing you Defendant's Exhibit J2 admitted into evidence, the CAD report, what particular CAD report am I showing you?
A. You're showing me a CAD report relating to the address of 375 Roxborough Road relating to a burglar alarm.
Q. And what time did the call come in?
A. 2000 hours and 54 seconds, which would be eight p.m.
Q. And does this particular CAD report indicate that there was a motion detector activation on the first floor?
Q. Approximately what time was that recorded by the system?
A. Seven minutes after eight.
Q. Thank you.
13WHAM News points out that no detailed examination appears to have occurred that explains the typical time lapse that occurs between when an ADT alarm is triggered and when the 9-1-1 call is initiated by that security system. No ADT representatives testified in court and no questioning of Mr. Fischer addressed what’s involved in alarm calls to the 9-1-1 center.
