A Prosecutor Wins Despite Himself

 Posted on June 23, 2007 in Uncategorized

Do you doubt that prosecutors don't have to be brilliant to win trials? Check this out:

Oh, and the prosecutor had a PowerPoint for his closing arguments. His closing arguments, frankly, annoyed me so much they made me want to acquit. It was really, really bad, but not surprising, considering that in his opening statements, we got a riff on "stop asking questions of the government, so we can keep you safe!" The prosecutor was probably one of the main factors that made me want to find the guy not guilty – but when we sat and went through the evidence, I got over it.

I feel for the prosecutor... and for the defender. Ouch.
