The consultant, Lester E. Hendrickson, of Mesa, Ariz., declined to comment when reached by phone. A staff person in his office said the case was opened in March. Hendrickson's most recent contract with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection started July 1, 2003, and is due to end June 30.Under the contract, the state has agreed to pay Hendrickson up to $98,000. In return, Hendrickson is to "provide expert consultation and litigation support by reviewing and testing evidence, including electrical hardware of metals, providing necessary reports, evaluations, deposition, and trial testimony." Chris Parker, CDF's deputy chief of law enforcement in Sacramento, said the department has been contracting with Hendrickson for at least the past seven years and that Hendrickson has proven to be a dependable expert. Hendrickson is currently involved in other CDF investigations in the state, Parker said.

A rock weighing one to 1 1/2 pounds traveling at 35 mph could have made the same kind of spider-web crack that covered the passenger half of O'Brien's windshield following the June accident that killed pedestrian Jim Reed, said Lester Hendrickson, an engineering consultant called by O'Brien's defense lawyers. Hendrickson testified that O'Brien likely clipped Reed from the passenger's side, contradicting the prosecution's contention that Reed walked in front of the car from the driver's side to the passenger's side. "If it were a direct hit, the force would be huge ... the whole windshield would have been blown out," said Hendrickson. Hendrickson admitted he based his calculations only on photos of the windshield and said he didn't view the actual windshield before last week. By then, the glass had been removed from the car and placed in a box. Rand also used a small rock, baseball and softball to illustrate the trouble with the bishop's contention that he thought a rock hit the car. Rand asked Hendrickson, "Do you think this rock is going to do the same damage as (Reed's) head did?" "A 1.74 pound rock would," Hendrickson said.
