Explosive allegations about Alex Midyette’s behavior before his baby’s death â that he kicked his pregnant wife in the stomach, used cocaine and viewed Internet porn just hours before bringing his dying child to the hospital â were unveiled in a court document Friday.

The judge in the case ruled that the jury would be allowed to hear new and controversial claims against Midyette, according to a transcript of a closed hearing held earlier this week on the admissibility of evidence at Midyette’s upcoming child-abuse trial. The transcript was released Friday.

The trial starts Monday in Denver District Court and is expected to last three to four weeks.

Midyette, 29, is accused of inflicting the injuries that caused the death of his 11-week-old son, Jason, in 2006. He has denied harming the baby.

His wife, Molly, was convicted a year ago of not getting help for her son in time to save his life and is serving a 16-year prison sentence.

Prosecutor Ken Kupfner is quoted in the transcript as saying that “there may be allegations presented” that Alex Midyette kicked a pregnant Molly in the stomach, and that those claims should be allowed at trial to show a pattern of abuse between husband and wife and possible in-utero abuse of the baby.

“I think that it’s relevant to show any abuse that occurred during the course of the relationship, specifically during the pregnancy,” Kupfner said.

Boulder County District Judge Lael Montgomery agreed.

“Evidence of â if such evidence exists of abuse toward Molly and, by inference toward the unborn baby if it was during her pregnancy, is admissible,” the judge said.

The prosecutor said it’s critical that evidence of cocaine use by the defendant while Jason was alive be admitted because it speaks to Alex Midyette’s “ability to interact with his son.”

Kupfner said three witnesses can attest to the fact that Midyette partied and used cocaine with them Feb. 15, 2006, the night before the defendant was on solo child-care duty.

He also said the jury should be able to hear about Alex Midyette’s “state of mind” on Feb. 24, 2006, the day the couple â who then lived in Louisville â brought a visibly ailing Jason to the hospital and a week before the baby died.

That includes evidence that when Jason’s condition was rapidly deteriorating, Alex Midyette spent a few minutes surfing hardcore pornography on his computer, Kupfner said.

“The testimony is that this is a child who was seizing and stopped breathing at 7 a.m.,” Kupfner said. “At roughly 10:30, Mr. Midyette’s state of mind was rather than caring for that child or seeking care, to go access the Internet for three or four minutes and look at pornography.”

And when his wife came home and called a friend with concerns about her baby’s health, Kupfner said, Alex Midyette asked her to ask the friend if she could score him some pot.

Midyette’s attorney, Paul McCormick, is quoted in the transcript as saying there is no evidence that his client was ever under the influence when he was caring for his son and that any allegation of drug use is irrelevant.

But the judge concurred with the prosecution and said Alex Midyette’s alleged drug use during his son’s 11-week life span was admissible.

She also said the jury could hear about the defendant’s porn viewing while being the sole caretaker to his son, though she said she would not allow the graphic images he was accessing to be displayed in the courtroom.

So mcauliif4 are you blogging at work again?I’ve known Molly for years and yes she’s divorced him.She’s got a lot of support from her friends in and around boulder.She’s lost her son and maybe she did deserve some sentence for what not fully cooperating but it’s been proven Alex is a controlling and abusive man, it’s hard for a woman to get out from under that and as soon as she wasn’t near either Alex or his high and mighty father she began to cooperate. Sometimes it takes to get away from the situation to see you’ve been duped. I truly hope Alex has a rough stay in prison.

Drugs and/or alcohol use/abuse should not be used as any kind of mitigation or excuse here either.There are plenty of drug addicts, alcoholics, who don’t commit these horrific crimes against their own kids.The injuries to this poor, helpless baby read like something out of an Amnesty International report.The monster is in the person before they use drugs and alcohol.This baby was abused long before he died as well.In the Grand Jury Indictment, there are instances where Molly lies to her own mother about injuries to the baby’s gums well before his death.She covered up, lied, aided and abetted him right up until the jail door slammed behind her.Don’t let these two peddle sorry excuses for their own deplorable conduct towards their own infant.

Molly is as much accountable for Jason’s death as is her former husband, Alex.There is no excuse AT ALL for what these two did or didn’t do to the poor defenseless child.

May Alex be sentenced to prison for the rest of his days.

1/10/2009 4:25:54 PM

What Molly’s friends don’t want you to know:From the indictment, Molly and Alex both lying to Mrs. Kay Midyette about the injuries to the baby’s gums, long before his death:

30.Kay said she received a call from Alex sometime prior to February 2, 2006 where Alex expressed concern about bleeding from an injury to Jason’s gum.Molly later expressed a concern to Kay about a second bleed from the gum when giving him a pacifer.The area of the bleed was described as the front center area of the upper gum.Alex and Molly advised Kay that they had talked to the doctor and the area of the gum had been examined by the doctor using a metal probe and the doctor indicated that it was not a problem as it did not go all the way through.Dr. Siegfried stated that at no point was the issue of a gum bleed raised by Molly or Alex, and she never used a metal probe to examine any intants’ gums.”

tara

1/10/2009 4:31:23 PM

Also from the indictment, more lies from Molly, this time to her own mother, preceding the death of the baby:28…Additionally, Molly told Jane (Mrs. Jane Bowers, Molly’s mother) there was something wrong with Jason’s arm.Molly described Jason’s arm as “it sort of floated.”Further, Molly told Jane that she and Alex talked to the doctor about it and showed her the arm.Molly said the doctor examined the arm, and referred to it as his “gimpy” arm.Dr. Siegreid said that Molly or Alex never informed her about a problem with Jason’s arm.Jason’s medical records do not reflect any mention of this concern.”

1/10/2009 4:39:33 PM

Too bad none of you know Molly,or you’d know her heart breaks every day for what happened to her child.I’ve known her since we were kids and anybody who knows her knows she’s not the way the papers portray her.The D.A. should have offered her protection from Alex and his rich Daddy.Its hard to feel safe from a man who can crush you physically or with his money,Trust me Alex’s Dad will do whatever it takes too make sure his little boy does not face justice,the only good thing is people always get what’s coming to them in the end.It’s horrible what happened to little Jason and in the end the the world is a little dimmer without his light shining in it.I hope Alex will get his just desserts repeatedly for eternity.

Had Molly done ANYTHING to get her baby away from his father, made ANY kind of attempt to save his life, instead of lying and aiding and abetting the father until she was taken away in handcuffs, she wouldn’t be where she is today.She made all those choices.Court testimony stated that while her son was in the ICU dying, a nurse overheard her talking to McCormick about OUR defense, not his OUR defense, “eggshell or broken baby defense?”There are plenty more examples from the trial testimony about this woman, her lies to a former boyfriend about being in an accident when she had just had the baby, etc.

This is a truly horrible story, and I believe that we will never know the truth, regardless of whether Alex Midyette gets convicted or not. Those of you who truly know the Midyette family (beyond going to high school with one of the kids or meeting Alex at a bar on Pearl or leasing property from PSMP), know that there are many very dark secrets in their closets and J. will pay whatever it takes to protect those secrets. For all we know, Alex and Molly might not be the animals that caused harm to this helpless child.

There is much ado about the internet sites viewed the day the injuries were allegedly sustained.The site was accessed for less than 4 minutes and whether the site was being viewed or idle is unknown.That is what the Jan. 5 transcript states.Certainly fewer 4 minutes is not neglect.In fact the site could have been idle. As far as it being a porn or a sexual site, how many people view such sites (men be honest)?It does not make them abusers.

As far a Ms. Midyette now stating that she was an abused woman is ludicrous.In my opinion Ms. Midyette will do or say anything to get out of incarceration and her friends will do the same for her.I question their character as they previously testified that Alex was a loving father and husband.In addition, I believe Ms. Midyette friends who make such allegations were in fact the cocaine users as outlined in the Jan. 5 transcript.Change your story after giving sworn testimony –that’s perjury and indictable as well as the illegal use of cocaine if admitted to.I would ask they be indicted.Ms. Midyette made false statements on many occasions.I believe prior to her marrying Mr. Midyette, she told many that she was violently raped.If was revealed during this case that the story was in fact made up.She was never sexual assaultedIt was proven that such sexual assault had never occurred and in fact she falsified the entire assault.Going by Ms. Midyette’s state of mind, you make up false violent rapes but don’t report real assaults.In addition, her claims fell on deaf ears at the court level as they threw out her request for a new trial based on her statements which the court believed were false.As Ms. Midyette friends stated Molly is a firecracker, she does not take anything from anyone.Your now abused woman syndrome, not flying.Wasn’t Ms. Midyette in a psych ward at law school and as a juvenile?

I will like to add, that I understand that this trial is a very emotional matter.I will agree that emotions are running very high.However, I have been reading the blogs and I am quite taken back.I guess I am surprised about the call for violence against the accused.I really thought that we are a society that will ask questions and allow for answers before such harsh reactions.I am one person who does not believe in rush judgment.I will wait for everything to be laid on the table before placing blame.I am looking forward to the MD testimonies and the microscopic fractures and lack of bruises are not consistent with abuse.Those that rush to judgment and quickly place blame â thank heavens you are not in positions of authority where your actions have irreversible consequences.

These friends, SARA VERNET, DANCER VERNET AND CARLY DAWSON, of Ms. Midyette, have previoulsy testified in two proceedings that Mr. Midyette was a loving husband and father. Now all of a sudden the testimony has changed. I just read from the Court site that on Jan 9, Mr. Midyette’s counsel filed papers requesting that these individuals: SARA VERNET, DANCER VERNET AND CARLY DAWSON be aedvised of their 5th amendment right because of admitted cocaine and marijuana use and cocaine and marijuana purchases and that should their previous sworn testimony be inconsistent they could face charges of perjury and drug related offenses. Based the January 5 transcript, it seems they may have been dealers as well.I wonder what other drugs they do Perhaps they are also METH users?If the Mr. Midyette’s bad character is based on these drug users, dealers and perjurers, they have no credibility whatsoever!In addidtion, I say indict SARA VERNET, DANCER VERNET and CARLY DAWSON on the drug charges as they are not above the law.

“In my opinion Ms. Midyette will do or say anything to get out of incarceration and her friends will do the same for her.”

There’s NOTHING that Molly can say or do — short of escaping — to get out of prison at this point. She’s been lawfully convicted, and received the Mandatory Minimum sentence. Notwithstanding Colorado’s “Spousal Testimonial Privelege”, even if Molly were to now testify that Alex did it, and even if she provided a secret video showing the crime, she would not be legally entitled to have her sentence reduced, nor her conviction overturned.

Alex’s porn use is irrelevant to the crime, the DA can make the case without it. Ditto for the cocaine and marijuana use, unless the DA intends to allege that the fatal injuries occurred while high/violent on coke, or that previous injuries in the pattern of abuse occurred while high on drugs.

Alex kicking his pregnant wife in the stomach *is* very relevant to his attitude regarding the welfare of the child.

BTW, a Due Process Trial in a Court of Law by a Jury of one’s Peers is the antithesis of a “rush to judgment”.

What a sad, sad, thing that has happenned. Who in their right mind would treat such a little helpless child in such a manner? A monster. That’s who.

Molly had the chance to tell of her husband’s abuse to both her and the baby up until the moment they read the verdict.

This woman is obviously intelligent or she wouldn’t have reached the career point she was at. And being an attorney herself, you’re telling me she didn’t know how to open her mouth?

She defended him as being a good father, a decent man..really?A good father and decent man doesn’t break the bones of his newborn son.

By defending this man,she identified herself as an accomplice, and thus,self- proclaimed her involvement for all to hear.

I have no sympathy for either of these sick examples of the evil in our society.

Instead of feeling sorry for these two sicko’s, try focusing instead on the real victim…the baby.Think of him laying innocently unaware while suffering the horrific-ness of being punched or hit so hard it broke bones and then suffering before dying. If you still think these are good people, you belong with them. While incarcerated, I vote for these two killers to be sterilized and then put in a dark hole for as long as sunshine exists.

Victory good point on the porn and/or drug uses.I go agree the kick in the stomach would be relevant.Funny though, Ms. Midyette never reports any trauma during her pregnancy. She could have made up a story to tell the doctor if she was concerned.My belief, it never happen. She is trying to do whatever she can to get out of her prison term or some how shorten it.I am not sure if this can happen as I am not very familiar with the sentencing process and/or review process.

Victory_SBTC

1/13/2009 11:14:10 AM

I read the papers that state some experts believe that the injuries occurred in utero.I believe based on some independent research that the injuries could be consistent with a medical condition.However, with Ms. Midyette now all of a sudden stating she kicked she now was a batter woman and was kicked in the stomach (which was just alleged by Ms. Midyette) she could argue that she had nothing to do with the injuries directly or indirectly and that the injury happened prior to birth.I do not believe that Colorado law has fetus protections rights.My thinking would be that the case be under review at the appellate level for a new trial based on new medical information from the doctors.Information hat was not available at the State Level.Is this her plan, the friends and utmost importantly her attorney’s plan?Food for thought.

It seems Mr. Midyette and counsel are not going to try this case in the media.A case this sensational is not going to be won in the media. I would probably agree.

CB1234

1/13/2009 12:11:15 PM

From an outside perspective it seems like the media is way too involved in this process. We all know that the only information we we’ll get from the media are going to be negative against Alex. In most child abuse case like this it is the mother who suffered from post partum syndrome. Assuming that the injuries to Jason where not medical, history proves that mothers are more likely to abuse their children. A father is going to be less likely to notice direct injuries to their kid such as a mother should notice the injuries. But lets be real, their baby was born early and was necessitated my doctors. Do you know the types of injuries that can occur and how easily they could go undocumented. If Jason bones where in numerous stages of healing then why aren’t the doctors in the department of corrections like molly is. Imagine if the injuries occurred then. Answer me this how in GOD name are the Midyette suppose be accountable for injuries that Doctors couldn’t even notice. If the bones where in healing stages and dated back to the birth date of Jason then how in the F are we to know that others medical professional couldn’t be responsible for broken bones.

Responsible Doubt….. There is plenty. I hope he is acquitted and his ex-wife is released from prison. I am so tired of a system full Politics and Media miss-cues and bad coverage of these stories. I am poor person with limited resources and its easy to say that the Midyette are rich and that’s why there getting this much exposure. Rich or Poor there is only one Judge and that is GOD. We should all be ashamed if we allowed ourselves to pass judgment on them. Rich but innocent until proven guilty and ultimately to be Judged my God. Some of comments on here show that the comment writers are really evil and it’s probably one of you who will do something evil to others. The comments are truly evil and ill logical. Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves.

iam12b2009, stop cross-posting your drivel on every article.Do some research and you’ll discover that Jason did not have brittle-bone disease, nor was he injured at birth.Everything that happened to him, happened at the hands of his “parents.”No one else took care of him during his very short and tortured life.Or are you one of Alex’s better-educated friends?

Heymom:you really are ill informed and you’re and idiot.That fact is as follows:not only did Ms. Midyette have an extremely difficult pregnancy; the delivery was extremely complicated as well.The child did in fact have to be resuscitated at birth. You know this because you were in the delivery room and you of course read the delivery report, right? (Read it!) .And even more amazing, you know for a fact that the child did not have brittle bone disease or any other metabolic disease/disorder because you are an expert and conducted all the testing for these rare metabolic disorders.So what are the initials attached to your name?. It is Heymom, MD, Heymom, PhD, Heymom, Esq., or I’m thinking more like this—-Heymom, A.S.S..

Heymom,

You sound like a semi god fearing individual. Your comment “I hope your “daddy” gets his torture every day in prison, for a long, long time, and then when Satan comes to claim him, he burns in Hell for an eternity. Your real Daddy in Heaven loves you forever.”

This sounds like astatement suited for someone headed to hell themselves.

YOU’RE ONE OF MANY WHO SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND COULD PROBABLY USE A CHURCH SESSION OR TWO.

For someone who reads and comments so much you obviouly know only the facts the MEDIA wants you to know. If you read a little more into it you’ll learn more. Since this is something you feel like dedicating your time to. Remember everyone is innocent until proven guilty. To go along with the media perpective is just wrong and stupid.

“I think that Jason deserves to hang…..after conviction of coarse !” – Sawyer

Why hang the dead baby?

Of course, it is a good idea to read what you type before you submit… just to make sure you don’t get ahead of yourself…

iam12b, I have nothing to be ashamed of.On the contrary, I know right from wrong.I am not “going along with the media perpective” whatever that is.One only has to know the basic facts about this case to understand what must have happened.There are a few cases I have been interested in over the years, and Jason’s death is one of them.I am hardly the most prolific poster on these comment boards.I am a mother myself and child abuse horrifies me.What horrifies me even more is that our justice system can be bought.

The facts of this case have been discussed over the 3 years since Jason’s death.It’s hard to argue with facts: that the parents were the only ones who cared for Jason during his short and tortured life; that his injuries over time led to his death; that he didn’t get his injuries from playing sports, falling off a table, or any other source but his parent’s “loving” hands.The media has been nothing if not fair in this case.They have reported the facts and have not led anyone to think that Molly and Alex are innocent or guilty.Jason’s injuries speak for themselves.

Remember, Molly has already been convicted by a jury trial.Alex’s justice is coming like a freight train.Of course the ultimate revenge will be the Lord’s, as it always is.

May God bless you wherever you are.

Heymom, A.S.S.Need I say more.Basic facts, wish life was that simple.But then again, you sound like a simpleton.

No facts have presented yet. That is what a trial is for.You are not an expert in the medical field, you have no knowledge as to what will be presented to support Mr. Midyette.

The system can be bought?Not understanding that statement. Are you saying the Midyette family bought someone off or are you annoyed the family can afford good counsel?

Here’s a typical post from Sarah, one of Molly’s law school friends, supporting BOTH Alex and Molly, and railing against Boulder law enforcement.Vlado’s infamous post in reply and rebuttal to this was taken down by the same friends:

Sex & Wealth have nothing to do with the investigation of a child death. Unfortunately, it seems that the success of the family has caused the Boulder P.D. to shine a spotlight on a beautiful young couple during a very tragic event. Rich or poor, Molly & Alex loved Jason with every fiber of their beings. They NEVER hurt him and only loved him every single day of his short life. To say anything else is ludricrous. If any of you bothered to get to know them, rather than reading the riduculous slander and IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM that has taken place, you would know that the boulder P.D. and ADA need to get new hobbies rather than harassing Molly & Alex. They are wonderful people who only want to put their sone to rest & move on with their lives.
