Dodger Beating -- Daughter Backs Suspect Alibi

TMZ obtained a photo of Giovanni and his daughter -- as well as the girl's statement ... detailing how she and her father spent March 31.

In the statement -- given to Giovanni's attorney Chip Matthews -- the girl says they were at an aunt and uncle's home early that day ... when her dad gave her a $100 bill to go buy a drink for him at a nearby store. She says her father was napping with his girlfriend at the time.

After the pickup, the girl says she played basketball with a cousin outside the house -- and then at 2PM left with her aunt and uncle to go get another cousin from school. She says when they returned she hung out with her father and family -- at the house -- for the rest of the day.

Matthews says, if necessary, the girl will testify on her father's behalf.

just another typical
day in the hood;

watching the dodgers on the tube, eating
quesadillas made from government cheese,
busting out a franklin from your unemployment check,
for yo rug rat to go fetch you something from your so busy schedule ...

What do you expect her to say? Besides just wanted to defend her father, it would be VERY easy to manipulate a child of that age into confusing dates. She could honestly be talking about spending the day with her dad, but not the day in question. Just that with enough coercion by adults she could come to believe it was the day of the game.

lol; is this rehearsed or not. So far there are many witnesses of him doing it.

He's a known gang banger; has a tear drop tattoo which means he either killed someone or one of his homies was killed.

This guy is s***.

The suspect said that he was babysitting his daughter and another child, but the daughter didn't mention that...How could you babysit while "napping"? How hard is it to get your shild to lie for you? And how is it possible for someone to basically identify you by all the marking you have without seeing you? Smh...if you're going to lie atleast be good at it. He's s*** I hope he's charged and locked away forever!

Hey, I'm not defending this guy AT ALL, but state holidays are a funny thing in California. State offices and departments were closed, but most City & County and all Federal government offices were open. Public schools were closed, but private schools operated business as usual. There are many parochial schools in that part of LA (Catholic actually) that would have been open. The child they picked up was not a sibling of the little girl, but a cousin.
Like I said, I'm NOT defending this guy, but so many are fixated on the school issue here. It is a plausible alibi, but whether or not the statements of this little will hold up remains to be seen.

Oh, and for the $100 to the daughter while her father was "napping." He was "napping" with his girlfriend and he gave his daughter $100 to get something to drink, to get her out of the house. I'll go ahead and guess that the "napping" the father and his girlfriend did had nothing to with sleeping. There are a lot of inferences in that statement.

Again NOT defending this guy, but he hasn't even been CHARGED with this (yet). He's being held on a probation violation for not living in the residence for which he had been registered to live in with his probation officer. So far, there is, up until today, no legal connection between the beating of Brian Stowe and this guy.

What I want to know is why he hasn't been charged by the LAPD yet if they're so sure he's the one that did it?

His ex girlfriend was on tv saying that he was at HER house watching her kid. Now they are saying he was at and Aunt and Uncles house with the kid- and his girlfriend- and they were sleeping?
Then the kid leaves with the aunt and uncle?

It's pretty clear that the kid was actually being baby sat by aunt and uncle- the only reason they admitted it is because the child was clearly seen with them and at their house.

But no one saw the child and dad together because he was 'sleeping' with is girlfriend.

LIE-LIE-LIE-LIE!
