B3 Man denies trespassing at Dishon family's home THE COURIER-JOURNAL METRO SATURDAY, JULY 1, 2000 next door to the Dishons' home. Under a previous court order, David Brooks was allowed to visit his family if he used a back way and didn't pass the Dishon home. The Dishon family has complained numerous times about harassing calls. They also claim Brooks has stared at them or motioned to them. Ward recused herself from further proceedings in the case after members of Jessica's family complained about the conditions of David Brooks' bond.

said. "Those were not present, in our opinion." Stuart said the sheriff's department had no arrest warrant and the misdemeanor did not occur while an officer was present. However, after listening to testimony from Gayla Mattingly, a cousin of Jessica's, Heaton dismissed the motion to release Brooks. Mattingly testified thai she saw Brooks utter dropping off Jessica's brother, Chris, at the Dishon home on Deatsville Road around 10:30 p.m. As she drove away, she said, she glanced in her rearview mirror and saw Brooks running from a garage behind the home.

She said he was wearing a blue shirt and ran directly into the light. "I was scared to death," she said. "I didn't have a cell phone so I drove straight home."
