jill-hansen-kitv

PRO SURFER JILL HANSEN IS NOT GUILTY OF ATTEMPTED MURDER… A JUDGE REACHED THAT VERDICT TODAY IN A NON-JURY TRIAL. HANSEN WAS ACCUSED OF TRYING TO RUN OVER A WOMAN IN WAIKIKI LAST MAY.KITV4’S BRENTON AWA WAS IN THE COURTROOM AND HAS THE DETAILS. KENNY — IN COURT TODAY THE JUDGE SAID THAT HANSEN COMMITTED THE CRIMES BUT SHE DIDN’T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO KNOW WHAT SHE WAS DOING AT THE TIME WAS WRONG. JILL HANSEN LEARNED HER FATE TODAY … SHE WON’T GO TO PRISON. JUDGE “WHAT HAPPENED HERE IT WAS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE ON SO MANY LEVELS I CANT EVEN BEGIN TO NECESSARILY COVER ALL OF THEM.” JUDGE ROM TRADER FOUND HANSEN NOT GUILTY BY REASON OF INSANITY. A RULING HANSEN’S ATTORNEY VICTOR BAKKE EXPECTED TO HEAR. 5105 – DEFENSE “THE DOCTORS WERE ALL IN CONCURANCE BEFORE THE TRIAL STARTED REGARDING THEIR EVALUATIONS AND WE WENT THROUGH THE PROCESS AND NOW WE’RE DONE.” LAST MAY — HANSEN RAN OVER A WOMAN IN A WAIKIKI PARKING LOT AND THEN TRIED TO REVERSE AND HIT HER AGAIN. THAT WOMAN SHOWED UP IN COURT TODAY. HERE’S ELIZABETH CONKLIN ON THE RULING. ELIZABETH CONKLIN, VICTIM “OF COURSE IT’S BEEN VERY EMOTIONAL I’M GLAD IT’S OVER I WANT TO PUT IT BEHIND ME NOW.” CONKLIN WAS HOSPITALIZED AFTER GETTING HIT BY HANSEN’S CAR. DOCTOR’S SAID HANSEN HEARD VOICES IN HER HEAD THAT TOLD HER TO DO IT. BUT STATE PROSECUTORS BELIEVE HANSEN DID IT BECAUSE CONKLIN WAS DRIVING A BMW. A CAR HANSEN WANTED TO HAVE. 3050 – PROSECUTOR “IT’S RATHER IRONIC THAT SHE RAN SOMEBODY WHO DRIVES THE CAR OF HER DREAMS.” HANSEN TRIED TO JUMPED IN AND DRIVE CONKLIN’S BMW AWAY BUT INSTEAD FLED THE SCENE BY HITCHING A RIDE WITH SOMEONE SHE FLAGGED DOWN. HANSEN HAS SEEN A NUMBER OF DOCTORS IN THE PAST YEAR. SHE WAS GIVEN A MEDICAL EVALUATION — THEN SENT TO THE HAWAII STATE HOSPITAL AND WAS FOUND UNFIT TO STAND TRIAL — UNTIL NOW. CONKLIN IS GLAD IT’S ALL OVER. 5022 – VICTIM “SHE WHISPERED SOMETHING TO YOU WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL US WHAT THAT WAS? I’M SORRY. WHAT DID THAT MEAN TO YOU? I APPRECIATE IT.” EVEN THOUGH JUDGE TRADER RULED THAT HANSEN’S NOT GUILTY. HE SAID SHE’S NOT READY TO BE RELEASED FROM THE STATE HOSPITAL YET. FROM HERE — SHE GOES BACK TO THE HOSPITAL FOR FURTHER HELP. IF CLEARED BY DOCTORS — SHE WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO GET OUT. THE SEARCH IS ON

Undeniable with Joe Buck/Kelly Slater is a one‐on‐one interview show that gives legendary athletes and coaches the opportunity to share their ascent to the pinnacle of success through their personal life stories and philosophies. The adult and hour‐long conversation will be to the world of sports what shows like DINNER FOR FIVE and INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO are to the world of Film and Television and CHARLIE ROSE and TERRI GROSS are to the world of popular culture. Filmed in front of an audience and hosted by Joe Buck, Undeniable creates a genuine and honest conversation about who these legends are, how they approach things, what they’ve learned and what lies ahead. The show doesn’t search for controversy, but rather seeks insight into true icons of the game and how they’ve succeeded so far above the rest.
