Apparently, CW wasn't able to talk to his Mama, before the plea deal. CW was expected to be an adult and make his own decisions with his attorney advising him. Now, he can talk to Mama, who is obviously delusional, thinking that CW could have somehow wriggled out of a finding of "Guilty". No way. Even a bench trial wouldn't have found CW "Not Guilty". LWOP was the only option, aside from the Death Penalty!
