10/22/2013 #6 Impoundment Note: On 9/22/2008, Commonwealth's Motion to place victim's name under seal was allowed. At sentencing, on 7/22/2010, the Court ordered Items I, J, and K, which had been marked for Identification, impounded. These were two Victim Impact Statements and a Recommendation from a physician. Also numerous pre-trial motions pertaining to psychiatric records, psychiatric exams, and psychiatric testimony were allowed. Some were allowed "as endorsed." Present counsel has not yet seen the motion or the endorsements, which may very well contain language having the same effect as an explicit order to impound. See Docketing Statement.
