Bethlehem Police head to Rochester

— Kindlon, obtained by the Porco family, said he is reviewing evidence he received from authorities in order to make a decision of whether to have Chris Porco testify in front of the grand jury.

"It's a highly technical issue and there are a thousand million different considerations, all aspects, all facts, the law, assessments and advisability," Kindlon said of deciding whether it is in Chris Porco's best interest to testify in front of the grand jury.

Kindlon said reviewing the evidence is a time consuming feat in itself, noting the videotape of Chris Porco's initial interview with police is about six-and-a-half hours long.

"It was lengthy just to get through it and the audibility was questionable," Kindlon said. "The other issue we know is that the tape ends abruptly before the interview is concluded, so there is some concern about that."

Kindlon recently hinted at a lawsuit for Chris Porco's suspension from school.

"Clearly, the Bethlehem Police went to Rochester and said awful things about Chris. The University of Rochester immediately, summarily suspended him on the spot, gave him a letter and told him not to come back on campus," Kindlon said recently, calling that development "offensive."

The grand jury, in place since December and described by district attorney representatives as investigatory, reconvened in January, after the jurors' terms were extended and has been on hiatus since then.""
