    Yes, there is on 'Wild about trial'. The whole trial is there. I think he starts testifying day 3 part 2 but they have labeled it. Before he begins testifying he has a big animated discussion with his two attorneys. They are all standing and his body language is as if he is their boss. I think they were trying to dissuade him from testifying. Then when everyone is ready and the Judge tells him to take the stand he says quite loudly -well I have to pee-I need to pee- the judge was not happy as everyone had been waiting for about ten minutes while he and his defense team decided what to do.

    Thanks, steve. Spent the afternoon watching this fellow try and fail to hide his inner rage at prosecutors, defense counsel, you name it. His mother didn't even give him a second's look after her testimony.

    What a piece of work.

    You might want to try this link - and scroll thru - they "might" have it here, not too sure though!

    and at this link: https://twitter.com/hashtag/leonjaco...fault&src=hash
