The people call Jennifer Ann Jostes, FBI Denver division
Special Agent Jennifer Jostes: Works on juvenile prostitution cases in a local taskforce and evidence response team.
Special Agent Jostes: Says they used a TopCon total station
Quick explanation of how total stations work, because I've used them in a past job: They are put in a known position (relative to the area) and a known distance is measured. Then, every time you measure a new location via a laser reflection, you can use trig to get a location in 3D space for the items you want to mark.
Special Agent Jostes: says accuracy is within millimeters.
Special Agent Jostes: Says she spent 8 days measuring with the total station inside the theater
Special Agent Jostes: "21 times, the most I've ever moved it" she says about how she had to move it to get measurements
No cross examination for Special Agent Jostes, no jury questions, She is excused
