UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, Cross-Appellant, v. DARRON J. MURPHY, SR., Defendant-Appellant, Cross-Appellee, and JENNIFER BAKER, Defendant, Cross-Appellee.
Nos. 04-2032, 04-2293 & 04-2309
UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SEVENTH CIRCUIT
406 F.3d 857; 2005 U.S. App. LEXIS 7695
1 The trial transcript quotes Ms. Hayden as saying Murphy called her a snitch bitch "hoe." A "hoe," of course, is a tool used for weeding and gardening. We think the court reporter, unfamiliar with rap music (perhaps thankfully so), misunderstood Hayden's response. We have taken the liberty of changing "hoe" to "ho," a staple of rap music vernacular as, for example, when Ludacris raps "You doin' ho activities with ho tendencies."
