    It is better to poll the jury. There was a case that the jury did not understand what unanimous meant. They were sent back and they again did not get it. Half of them said guilty and the other half not guilty. So polling is a good idea

    NO, not at all, and I'm sure we will be able to think of why and prove that by picking apart his story and looking to see when information came out to the public (and how it matches up with his story). I'm not saying that right, but hopefully you know what I mean....

    Still blaming Dalton. To any attorney on right now. Could Dalton sue them for defamation?

    MOO It shows some of the “real” him. I don’t buy any of this…. He’s soft spoken, respectful, shy, nice guy. Sure, thats the cover. What he shows the outside world. His actions on July 18, 2018 show a whole different persona. Shy certainly isn’t the word I’d use. Not with how many times Mollie was struck….let alone the predatory sexual component. He nodded because he knew he did it, knew he got caught, and at this point is just accepting his fate. If anything I’d say it’s some of that anger slowly coming out.

    I am so glad one of the reporters asked if they tried to find the masked men!! I hope someone asked about protecting the ex and children?

    My take of the comments is that while CBR said that story from day one, they themselves didn't find it very believable.

    From the presser - Defense team:

    CBR's defense will be filing an appeal (end of July/Early August) based on denial received for review of Judge Yates decision in the evidence suppression hearing.

    The Frese are pleased that jurors deliberated 7 hours. (I think they were surprised).

    Praised CBR's family -- a pleasure to work with them and also their client.

    Dalton Jack's phone records -- Frese had them but couldn't introduce them as evidence. Thousands of pages. But Frese doesn't say the phone records placed Dalton in Brooklyn!

    On the Ninja's -- it's like trying to prove there's no Santa.

    CBR immigration status - he'll serve his sentence first.
