And to a -- has say it to them except publicly.
That she would not have charged -- -- with second degree murder if they -- have evidence to get a conviction.
They explained to -- a bond here and they were not gonna.
Show their hand and I think that's what happened and the bond here and they did not want to.

Everything that they had -- on this strategy.
So then you're saying that they were not surprised then by what happened by the states.
Lack of a really firm presentation.

The com are aware that he was probably gonna give him bond.

It was just a real emotional.
Thing for them to be in the courtroom with the killer of their child.

The mother of -- of she had to comfort him and keep telling him we just gotta be strong.

Only feet so you know just a few feet away from the man who -- of this.
And he had to just trust in the system and you know -- constitution says and everybody gets a right to a bottom here and and the jets who listens to both sides and makes -- decision the bond is appropriate it -- time them.
For whatever reasons he did and they just -- live with it and they are trying to keep their composure and their -- and -- and have faith in the system.
What about the apology then it seemed heartfelt did you think it was contrived.

And they thought it was.
Just for him to give mine he has so -- and opportunities.
Win that Rio.

Nowhere and did -- he say I'm sorry for taking -- life -- rom mark and nowhere does he show any remorse is only the day before and has behind him that we get where he wants to apologize.
And we say it's not an appropriate time to do so but yeah he just disregard that -- to bond -- And it's one of those things the family we're offended by the -- we said it wasn't appropriate time.
Welcome -- -- you welcome -- so here thanks for being with us.
Where is your client tonight.
Several county jail.
So he has not been able to raise the 151000 in cash and 135000.
In security to back is bond.
Correct this they're working on -- also concerns about the GPS monitoring the blue monitoring program as well what do you mean what of the concerns about that mark.
Not now considers -- -- into place.
We've got to meet with the officer.
All -- crevice every -- out nothing unusual this have to work through that process do you still want him to be kept out of state or allowed him to.
Stay out of state pending process.
Well we have several officers where it's going to be at least one of those are out of state.
I just wanna make sure that wherever we place -- he secured there and we talked about many times has a lot of welled up emotions in this case -- do not want them flowing over on to George until all the facts from around.
You heard -- -- just now suggest as he has to the last 72 hours that the apology your client offered from idea.
In the court to the parents was insincere contrived your comment correct.
I had reached out to try and make it it confidential.
Private communication between my client.
And the modern family.
I did that two days before the bond hearing.
Did not get a return call.
I've been sent a second message -- -- Whether or not I've -- understand there's violence to being rejection.
And that I needed to know soon because I knew the -- is coming up.
And editing get a return call.
-- to suggest that you know it it was said to be the wrong time my only wish.
That it had the time to community get that to me directly.
Because -- every at least had any conversation in -- regard.
-- it was my suggestion to Begin with that it may well have been worked out in a -- -- wasn't.
Public because it was Jordan's decision.
And with my concurrence that it was not to be public that it was to be private OK mark let and I confident and -- To respond to that I'm not mistaken then.
Get respect from -- Toronto.
-- -- -- class.
If he wants detailed the family thing we -- him to tell the film of the true.
Not different versions of it we want to have to prove why he felt he had to -- guests.
And that is -- troubling thing to them have been a whole time.
We know he even in their apology Tola and troops do and an apology he said that he -- -- That how this where's he was it probably was a couple of years younger than him where we know from the now -- -- -- that night when he talked to the police dispatcher.
He told the police dispatcher that -- bomb laden was in his stings so how that now when he gets in court.
He's want to tell untrue we think it was just saw the for him to get bond and there's very family.
-- -- it was very clear.
In there -- press conference in their comments that it was not the -- we.
Time let's lose the photographs right now let's stick on the attorneys go ahead mark.
Just -- -- -- I knew what he said I'm not in one take he knew what -- -- on -- on 11 tape to suggest that that is some blatant.
Why -- -- accuracy with with some intent is sort of absurd.
The reality is where he said what he said that it was a few years younger than him we know I know -- -- been some perfectly well coached.
Statement I could easily -- said save the words you said in the -- -- one tape.
He was a teenager I had to say what he was feeling and he said and I think appropriately now certainly it.
It could've been done fifty days ago and may well have been that he had proper advice fifty days ago you heard.
What he said in -- in response to cross examination.
When he was told by whoever maybe previous council not to do so.
I disagree with that.
It is it is in -- -- okay hold on moral Palin today -- Yeah like he doesn't his previous councils before what else did it was not let let me do what they -- -- -- of the web site he did he put that up.
And his under his -- control overall though.
He said it everything important to this matter in nowhere in that web site that he Samsung or procurement -- mom Martin.
So we feel now -- a little self serving.
And he had ulterior motives when he says and his bond here so he can get out of jail.
