    Closing Statement Expectations

    I was wondering what everyone was thinking about Sunday's closing statements.

    I know I am thinking Jose Baez will try and sneak in a bunch of stuff for which there is no evidence. Like the drowning and the abuse. I expect objections and arguments and it to turn into a big mess.

    I also look forward to seeing the State tie everything together in a complete story for the jury. I love how they simplify the complex.
    My opinion only, please keep it that way

    I was watching Judge Alex earlier on HLN and he said there are rarely any objections during closing arguments.

    He must not have watched the closing arguement for the OJ case. The DT must have objected 60 times. I can't recall anything of what Marcia Clark said. She was badgered, interrupted, and objected to on almost every sentence.

    Baez will not be allowed to make any statements referring to anything he did not back up with evidence from opening statements...which is pretty much everything. Not sure he's got anything to work with and I'm curious to see what he's going to say. Can't talk about abuse, George being involved in the accident, Kronk being involved along with every other bogus statement he made in opening.

    OT, but did you guys hear OJ confessed to killing Nicole and Ron but that it was self defense because Nicole pulled a knife on him?

    You are right, of course, but we have seen him blurt things out that he wasn't supposed to say all along. I am thinking he will do the same tomorrow then cry foul with all the objections.

    I remember that. WIth each objection, the item I threw at the tv got bigger and bigger.

    Agreed. JB cries foul more than all the MLB umpires combined.

    I think that I expect either JA or LDB to simply stand when they want to object and if His Honor agrees he will interrupt JB.

    I think it will be subtle.

    and When Prosecution presents we will hear some of those objection/sustained interludes.

    I am so impressed with Belvin Perry Jr. I think he needs to keep closing on a straight and narrow to prevent a retrial on appeal.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!

    I think JP will make it very clear where he stands once again on what can and can't be said during closing. I wouldn't even be surprised to hear a contempt of court warning given before they start off before the jury is seated. I think JP has had it with JB.
