Just an observation on my part, but when I first posted the poll, the percentage of individuals choosing First Degree Murder was much larger – over 53 percent.
It has slowly ticked downward over the past two weeks since the defense started presenting their case.
A lot of people still feel the defense has done a terrible job, but he must be at least raising some issues enough to have people choose lesser counts over the First Degree Murder charge.
Don’t get me wrong, I still feel she is guilty of MORE than just lying to police – but I absolutely feel she is not guilty of First Degree Murder – even though the jury might still find her guilty of that charge.
If there is a mistrial declared, the defense will be able to do a much better job in a retrial and she will probably not be found guilty of anything more than lying to police.
The prosecution has been playing some real dirty tricks, some which are very unethical, and it might just backfire on them.
