Oshinsky said he gathered the information, put them on CDs and mailed them back.  Typically through FedEx.

Prosecution placed two CDs in front of him and asks him to verify those were the two from the search warrant.

Oshinsky said yes.

12:47 PM: Prosecution does it appear the content on the CDs is the same as when he did them for the search warrants.

Oschinsky said yes. (He looked at them earlier today) 

Prosecution wraps up questioning of this witness. 

Michael Naughton, one of Kwame Kilpatrick's attorney does the cross examination. 

He asks if Oshinsky had time to review all the texts on the CDs because there are so many. Oshinsky agreed.

Naughton wants to talk about the log filing process.  

Oshinsky said a message would come in, it's held in memory and as it's being processed, data by the software was written out to log files and the information is sent along to the pager.

Naughton wants to paint a picture of how the information is stored.

He asks if there is consistent information about a customer written to a log file.

Oshinsky said yes.

12:58 PM: Naughton says there is not a bucket for each conversation, that the log file just takes all of it. Oshinsky said yes.

Naughton shows Oshinsky a document and wants to know if it is from him or Skytel.

Oshinsky said he doesn't think he had seen that document before.

He said it was not generated by him. 

1:02 PM: Naughton asks if he is an expert in this.

Oshinsky says on this system yes.

Naughton asks how long a text message could be.

Oshinsky said that depended on the customer.

Naughton refers to pager model TXT16.  He asks if you can transcribe a text message with a microphone.

Oshinsky said no.

Naughton said typically messages can be short and can use short forms like LOL.

Oshinsky said yes.

Naughton asks if it tracks location information.

Oshinsky said no, there is nothing where the messages come from, but the Knock does.  He said they can track which towers the messages come from.

Naughton asks if there is a vocal inflection.

Oshinsky said no.

Naughton keeps hitting the point over and over the messages are short.  That people are not going to type a  novel.

Naughton ends his questioning.

1:06 PM: Michael Rataj, Bobby Ferguson's attorney starts cross exam.

He asks about retrieving an old message. 

He gives the example of sending a text message two weeks ago.

He said two weeks go by and he wants to send a new text to the same person could he go back to the old text.

Oshinsky said yes. 

Rataj asks if he sends a new text two weeks later if the old response would be included in the new text, even if they're unrelated.

Oshinsky said yes. 

Rataj ends his questioning. 

1:10 PM  Court ends for the day.
