My opinion on the demeanor of prosecution and defense. Defense came in “guns blazing” making somewhat ridiculous requests regarding copies of every text btw police, investigators, FBI, CBI, CCSO. There are standard rules for prosecution to provide discovery. Defense attys acted as expected, aggressive. No reason for Prosecution to go guns blazing, they’re after BM, not defense atty. Prosecution politely disagreed when requests were unreasonable. Sometimes judge agreed. Must keep in mind future appeal issues.
One funny was the request by Defense for “recordings” of all witnesses when they would be interviewed or had meetings with investigators. Prosecution explained most are recorded on body cams. Defense said they would provide an extra camera for recording in case there was an equipment issue. Judge said, “I know we’re in the sticks, but they have the means and have purchased recording equipment.” (Close to that effect)
I’m very impressed with the judge, he’ll not let city-slicker attorneys run his court, Prosecution was fine. MOO
