Holly Grigsby and David “Joey” Pedersen are accused of the aggravated murder of David “Red” Pedersen and his wife, DeeDee. Prosecutors also believe that the Oregon couple killed an Oregon teenager and a disabled California man. Both are white supremacists and police say that Grigsby said that they killed the Oregon teen, Cody Myers, because his name sounded Jewish.
The two defendants have been denied access because they are classified as maximum security inmates. More importantly, the jail has limited access to cocoa puffs and sugar cereal because they are used to make jailhouse hooch. It turns out Grigsby has been charged with various infractions including trying to brew booze in her cell.
Defense attorney Pete Mazzone is arguing that the denial of access constitutes a constitutional violation, presumably in equal protection because I cannot see the eighth amendment violation. They might have better luck with Superior Court Judge Linda Krese over the denial of their demand for Almond Joy bars.
