Jeremy Kent: At the time you investigated the Harrit murder, how long had you been employed by Las Vegas PD?
Catherine: 18 months.
Jeremy Kent: Oh, that's all? Prior to the Thomas Harrit murder, you always worked under a supervisor.
Jeremy Kent: So this case was your first unsupervised investigation?
Catherine: It was my first solo case, but all my case work was reviewed by my supervisor.
Jeremy Kent: Well, regardless, it was in your best interest to get a conviction.
Catherine: I don't deal in convictions, that's for the jury.
Jeremy Kent: Still, worked out pretty good for you. Better than it did for me.
Catherine: Is that a question?
Jeremy Kent: (scoffs) Sorry if I'm wasting you time here, it's just that I've been in here for 18 years for something I didn't do, so all I got is time. You know, I met a drug dealer in here who knew your husband Eddie Willows, apparently he was a very good customer. I heard he died, my condolences.
Catherine: I'm sorry, what was the question?
Jeremy Kent: Were you taking any drugs, legal or illegal at the time that your processing this crime scene?
Jeremy Kent: Was it because you were pregnant? How is your daughter?
Catherine: How is that relevant?
Jeremy Kent: Oh, I'm laying a foundation. That's how we refer to it in the legal community. Now, having a child is a life altering experience. Did your pregnancy influence your judgment?
Jeremy Kent: So your condition didn't impose any limits on the chemicals you could use while processing the crime scene?
Catherine: No, all the evidence I collected was bagged and tagged and all the test were conducted by the experts.
Jeremy Kent: Who, like yourself are all employees of the Las Vegas Police Department, and therefore inclined to give their employer the answers they want. I don't trust your lab results.
Catherine: Which why you can exercise your right to hire the expert of your choosing to re-examine the evidence.
Jeremy Kent: Right, at my own expense. You see, I haven't earned that much money in the last 18 years.
