I mean, witness stand. Currently testifying about his time as a juror. So far, he’s been great for the Defense.
The bingo moment
Yep. He said that. That was his, right. out. loud, testimony.
Naturally the defense asked him more questions. 🙂
As expected, there have been “Objections” from the DA.
On cross the DA has been doing back-flips trying to provide damage control. But there is no damage control. The more Easter talked, the more it was revealed he had an agenda.
Todd Easter’s Big Agenda
Turns out, Todd Easter wanted to be foreman. Todd Easter wanted to read the verdict. Todd Easter wanted to see the faces of the accused after the verdict was read. Todd Easter went on TV.
A lot of TV.
This went on all day. No word whether victim is in court. But as an aside, today is Brandon Vandenburg’s twenty-second birthday. 🙂
Corey Batey’s family is in court, but I don’t see a crush of Vandenburgs. Possibly Shawna, Brandon’s mother, is there.
Judge said they are taking an hour and a half for lunch to review detective’s records, which both sides agreed to stipulate, were accurate. Court resumed at 1:15p.m. EST.
Mr. Robinson, representing Corey Batey, is now stumbling through his “outrage.” Keeps forgetting the name of the juror. Robinson is now attempting to smear the juror, but breaks momentum because for the life of him, can’t get the juror’s name right. The second attorney can’t pronounce “incredulous” although he tries about four times.
Apparently this is what passes for professional in Tennessee.
The almost conclusion
Hearing over. The judge said he is out on all week, and should have something next week.
My guess: New trial.
My dream: That would be Todd Easter charged by the State for costs of the trial, and charged with obstruction of justice.
