Not surprised at all. The 3 times I watched, the prosecution put me to sleep. Literally. I was so expecting to get a bombshell last witness for the prosecution, what a disappointment! zzzzzzzzzzzz
What's the trial in NJ? Maybe I'll follow that one instead.
Ouch. That's not a good sign.
I believe that! And Klinkosum is focussed and intense. His boy's freedom is on the line. He's looking at LWOP. Huge responsibility. He had to have been completely deflated after the last trial. They took a risk and put JY on the stand. The man spoke for the first time since the murder. Now his words are locked in. In your opinion, will they take the same risk this time around?
I would think not. If he said anything different, that could be problematic. And if he didn't say anything that really harmed him the last time, they should count themselves lucky.
But I need to say that I wouldn't be that he was deflated after the last trial. A hung jury, especially 8 to 4 is a victory to most defense attorneys.
With all due respect, <modsnip> I know at least one Florida prosecutor who was not surprised at all by the Anthony jury's decision. He didn't blame the jury, he blamed the prosecution team.
A jury doesn't lose a case, attorneys lose it.
Well, let me just say it would have been very bad form for the prosecution to whine about the jury after the case is over. He took responsibility and that was quite gracious and professional. But it certainly does not mean they presented a weak case.
There is always more one can do in such cases. Every attorney second guesses him or herself. But like I said, every lawyer or competent legal analyst I heard discuss the outcome, was completely shocked. Including Jeff Ashton.
