she can't be charged/tried again so I'm curious about her repeatedly refusing to answer and the way CM kept harping about her 5th amendment rights. is that more about protecting JB/CM than her? are they worried that certain answers could brush up against "what did your attorneys know and when did they know it?
Should I admit guilt to my criminal defense attorney?
... attorneys cannot present evidence or arguments that they know to be false. (American Bar Association, ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, Rules 3.1, 3.3.) Does this mean that if a client admits guilt to his or her attorney, the attorney cannot enter a not guilty plea or zealously represent the client? No. In such cases, the attorney can focus on the holes in the prosecutors evidence, or on other legal issues (such as whether a search was appropriate under the Fourth Amendment, or whether scientific tests were performed according to the appropriate standards) that do not relate to whether the client committed the crime or not.
... the defense lawyer may not lie to the judge or jury by specifically stating that the defendant did not do something the lawyer knows the defendant did do. Rather, the lawyers trial tactics and arguments must focus on the governments failure to prove all the elements of the crime.
I am also curious about why she hid behind the fifth amendment on several questions.
Is it possible that her parents could go after her in civil court for wrongful death and be awarded all her future earnings, much like what happened with OJ?
You may also be able to sue if you are a grandparent, legal dependent or member of the extended family of the deceased. This will depend on the state laws and your ability to convince the court that you are the right person to bring the claim.
