Prosser Vouches for Jensen's Character

Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, for whom Jensen worked as ARC director, said Jensen is "a person of the highest integrity."

Prosser said of Jensen, "I have always trusted Scott Jensen. He was a person who kept his word. I think he's an honest person and a fair person."

On cross-examination, Blanchard asked Prosser if his opinion would change if he knew Jensen gave false information in interviews with law officials. Prosser answered simply, "No."

Marlin Schneider, a Democratic representative since 1970, was also called as a character witness for Jensen.

"My opinion is that in the Legislature the only thing you have is your word," Schneider said. "Working with Mr. Jensen, he never betrayed me."

Schneider said even though Jensen is a political opponent, he trusts him. "I don't like his political philosophy on issues, but I have found him honest and above-board and always willing to work with us."

On cross-examination, Blanchard asked Schneider if his opinion would change if he knew Jensen gave false information in interviews with law officials. "Depending on what that was, potentially yes," Schneider said. "But I try to judge people on how they treat me, not their relationships with others."
