The county says the photos were never posted online and were removed shortly after the crash. But Bryant and Chester say they live in fear of the photos resurfacing because there’s no way to know for sure if they still exist somewhere, ready to pop up anytime.
“Forty-four years ago today, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kobe Bryant was born,” Bryant’s attorney Craig Jennings Lavoie told the jury as he began his closing argument. “Today is his birthday. It is an honor to represent Ms here. Bryant is asking for justice and accountability on his behalf, and on her behalf, and on behalf of their daughter Gianna, who would be 16 if she were still with us.”
