Here we go again. How many times can you plead the fifth in a deposition? I guess as many as you like. The line questioning has to do with a time prior to my knowledge of his intent to leave. My guess, but I am not entirely sure, is that some of this occurred when we were on our family vacation.
Joanne: "In the spring, April and May of 2013 did you leave your, quote, running phone, for lack of a better description with a third party, and did you in fact call that phone from your iPhone?"
JV: "I'll take the Fifth Amendment to remain silent."
Joanne: "If your bills which were subpoenaed and furnished a copy to your lawyer show that you talked on one day over four --I think four and a half hours from between your phone and your running phone, could you tell me who you would have been speaking to?"
JV: "I'll remain silent"
Joanne: "And if those bills showed that the next day you spent two and a half hours speaking between your running phone and your iPhone, do you recall who that would have been with?"
JV: "I'll take the Fifth Amendment on that as well"
Joanne: "And if you, in fact, have the running phone so that your phone calls couldn't be traced; it would look like you're talking to yourself for four hours?"
JV: "Absolutely not"
Well, at least we know he was not speaking to himself.
Some may say that I am angry and this is why I am sharing my story. Truth be known I am angry at what he has done to our family, but I am no longer angry with him. I forgive him because that is what God calls us to do. Not that he has ever asked. I am just telling my story to let others know they are not alone and they can make it regardless of the pain.
