I dreaded having Dennis on this trial after his behavior in SM’s first trial. He has been more professional this time, has not inserted himself into the proceedings as much with stupid stories, and not as rude and condescending to NL. From his remarks yesterday, he believes SM is guilty, and the truck washing video seems to have erased any doubt he may have had. I hope that whatever sentence Dennis hands down will not be influenced by whatever connection he has to SM’s parents.
I, like you, was dreading him, but I almost got the sense he was proud of the state lol. After lunch he clarified that his wife and daughter were at home watching the trial
And they were concerned that everyone heard what he said. He seemed so proud that his wife and daughter were watching and he spoke about how he reassured them. I still think he’s a pompous *advertiser censored*, but maybe a little less that day lol.
