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.

And another thing.........Maybe this Little girl remembers because she never sees her POS gang banger dad.....did you dorks think of that? Thats why she remembers so vividly, these types of guys pick there chicks over their kids most of the time, and let me tell you he wasn't napping, he was tearing it up with his girlfriend! duhhhhh!!!! thats why he sent her to the store!!!!! Most men like this are stupid.....I know plenty of dumb asses who send there kids to the store, more than I'd like to know to be honest. I don't agree with that though, especially a young girl....dumb fool, that was stupid. Well anyway that's my theory on why she remembers, because she must vaguely see him. maybe once a month.....My son has not seen his dad in about a year, ask him to give you an account of their last visit, he could literally tell you what they did by the hour......it's true.....

One thing a lot of people have not brought up...

If that was a holiday and she had the day off then why did they pick up her cousin from school at 2PM.

If it wasn't a Holiday the school got off... all they have to do is go to her school and see attendance records. If she was NOT absent that day then Case Closed

The only other thing is the 2 adults that were there after... if this alibi is a lie then it'll fall apart very quickly.

But in the end... this is America and you are innocent until proven guilty. All the racism and ignorance on this board shows how far this country has yet to go

Prosecution has to place him at the scene. The witnesses described a mole, in a lower part of the cheek with a chubbier looking generic hispanic with bald head. He has a tattoo, not a mole. What's to say the could even ID him in that bad lighting. Isn't one of the parts of the lawsuit blaming the lighting? So how could they I.D. him in the dark? If 3 different witnesses can't tell the difference between a mole, and a obvious tear drop tattoo... what's to say they are lying so they can sue Mc'Court? Would love to hear Harvey's POV without passing judgement. And Beck being a cheerleader giving out stupid statements every five minutes is adding to the bad public image the defense needs to prove it's a classic case of "the scapegoat". The Stows "think" it's him, while LAPD just nabbed some parolee to try to sway public opinion. This will be a hung jury, or be completely tossed out. Can we say, OJ!?

Mel,

If it was a holiday, why did the daughter leave to pick up her cousin at 'school'? Was it a holiday or not?

Rumor is dude with the mole has blasted his neck with fresh tattoos. His name is "Juan Carlos Zambrano" from MuertosX3. His newer booking photos shows his tattoos. The other dude is only known as "Casper" from KDPX3. Both live in Highland Park, and have family in Fontana. They have been bragging saying "cops got the wrong guy" LAPD... you owe me a box of donuts. Regardless if it's not them, dudes got some heavy guns on them so be CAREFUL. But notice the chin and eyes matches on one dude, and the MOLE is in the correct place. LOOK VERY CLOSE! He tried to laser remove his MOLE!

okay....first why was she not in school? second....why in this crazy world would you allow your 9 year old daughter to walk to the store...by herself...in LA....with a $100??? I am sure he is thinking that he is smarter then the police...but he will see that they can trace your ticket purchase....and really...if i told my 9 year old to say something...she would! I wonder if the "cousin" was the little boy in the car that was seen driving away. It takes a very small man to beat someone because of he likes a certain team....not too mention to most likely ...have your child lie for you! Great man...great father!!

Rumor goes... dude with the mole, has his neck blasted with new tattoos. LAPD, you owe me a box of donuts. Just hand them out in Skid Row. One of their names is "Juan Carlos Zambrano" AKA Speedy form a gang called KDPx3, and Muertosx3. Who cares, he's holding a gun with a 30 round mag.. it's rumored these are the guys! But they are on the run, and no one in the hood has seen them.

SO, he was BABYSITTING for a 9 year old he gave $100 to leave to go to a store while he was "napping" with his girlfriend. Got it. This will be easy for jurors. NEXT.

So does dodger stadium have 0 surveillance cameras? And what luck all his friends were there and they came up with pics that he wasn't in. Very shocking lol. Plus I'm sure he texted or something with his phone which will show his location at any given time so check the phone records. If he's innocent that will prove it.

Well Beck said he was absolutely confident they have the right guy, so aside from the lineup, I'm sure the investigators have checked phone records, followed up on these "alibis" and maybe even crossed the phone ping location with any activity that night showing the location.

Next we will hear how one of his homies in the picture was "using his phone that day" which would explain why his phone was at the game and not with him.

I can't remember the last time I babysat during opening day while my friends all enjoyed the game, took my daughter out of school and sent her to the store with a hundo for a soda while I "napped" from my hard work schedule, then and why not?....let my homies take my phone with them to the game.

It's like being caught with an ounce of blow and saying, "I was holding it for a friend". I pray justice will be served.
