The shocking courtroom decision that will change Phil's client's life forever.
Case Study Pt 2; How Do You Plead
What will Phil's client do when faced with an impossible choice?
Maurices opinions (Tara grinstead (glove means planned to kill her) and ONLY planned) sounds like over ego tunnel vision! (Be headed elderly lk couple) it’s possible that the mans face was scratched up or others marks on the head was feared to present evidence towards whomever done this horrific crime and they felt they had no choice. So many crime shows out there people are aware of even a cat hair being left at the scene can convince a jury. You can’t really profile killers unless it’s a serial killer in which victims have similarities! Outside of the box ! That’s what’s needed.
I loved the first season
The first season was great, but the second season devolved into a series of lectures on the inadequacy of our justice system. One of the reasons for minimum sentences is that judges tend to put some people back out on the street too soon, and they reoffend over and over. I’m thinking specifically of the guy who kept getting short sentences for stealing rare books. At some point you need to throw out the key, which is the reason 3 strikes is so popular. He may not have physically hurt anyone, but he did cause major damage to the lives of those book dealers. Non-violent crimes are still crimes and need to be stopped. Also, you have the best theme song of any podcast and stopped using it during the second season! Why?
love this show!
The host is a smart lawyer with a lovely southern accent who actually lets the people he interviews talk instead of talking over them like most crime shows. also the sheriff in the elisodes about the lake october murders is incredible, i wish more police officers were of of his caliber.
