Fox News Channel the attorneys in this case now speaking live listen issues and then a jury has spoken and -- we respect that verdict and -- there's a lot of hard work on both sides and the jury worked hard to make it up with a verdict and.
Obviously we respect the -- yeah not only coming on our.
It's not ever again there's still a bit of a gag order on the still penalty phase that is potentially gonna happen in -- -- open.
I don't really wanna comment on of this good time at the time it was a decision that we thought was the right decision.
To go forward on this case and again yeah I don't think that's true it's.
Coming out -- Well I guess yes I definitely did not make me if I'm not telling them -- don't.
For -- -- what's coming up.
I didn't really say much other than I will say this that that.
I think guys know.
Showed me a little bit of something and before the -- -- -- -- he.
We thank you very much -- -- effort which is.
To -- says a lot about it before any verdict isn't -- And I and I respected that and out of him.
The verdict is one that then.
Started occasionally -- murders seven murders.
And as long arms and not guilty of murder and then there was four other -- division murders back.
There were stories that -- and so we have to do that we'll.
I don't know.
Jack as the prosecution indicated they will seek the death penalty or could you possibly negotiated deal for life.
If you give up the deal.
-- that's always an issue I mean I can't comment on that right now that good but sometimes that happens I'm not saying middle I've been here for the stores -- Don't know about them on right.
Besides the state -- -- those guys any intelligent human being will be at this point I was disappointed -- -- that and we.
We aired out our position on this over.
A long trial -- a fair trial.
-- we got put out our position.
And the jury spoken and to me that's where our system's all about I -- we had an opportunity.
He presented -- we work hard and we thought we had issues legitimate issues present -- them.
The jury obviously did their job -- -- and then that's when you know again let's thank them for their efforts that they put out and spending all this time on the good.
A lot of work and as I said that they.
Verdict should be respected based on their effort.
Running on moment moment.
Now now -- I was on a massive trial there was as we started the case there's a segment where.
78 different homicide involves the struggles mentioned there was -- eight of -- seven.
-- and then one lady and so that's a lot of there's a lot of testimony about evidence and is this jury worked very very very hard and they should be commended and I guess.
I respect what juries do I don't always agree but say I respect everything that they did and they should be commended for -- Judge I can't -- politically charged.
Partly helped look towards his name because we knew what she was so -- -- -- And around -- well that's removed it.
Yeah I do I have I have confidence in -- and an injury.
And how they have received I mean.
Although I do you know there -- a little bit of feeling on the defense part of what -- and must feel like swimming upstream I mean obviously that's really felt like a lot in this case.
But I think that the jury.
I don't believe that I mean there's been a lot of publicity about a negative publicity but I again I I have confidence in the jury system and the people that.
Take their job very seriously and I don't think they get influenced by that yeah.
This was your client deserves.
What he's been convicted but again we we still have that issue before the the jury and I want to comment on that.
Anybody can -- on the line.
Well I think it's -- very difficult case and there's a lot of emotion we have.
The baby factor which is a big problem.
Part of the media's been overwhelmingly against him.
But yet again I don't think that's really what did that mean I don't I mean that's just.
A by product I think I think the jury listen to the evidence.
We presented an aggressive the we played really.
Did it in the fairway.
Hard working right and it's happening again -- will be -- but it's.
I give Americans a not guilty so obviously that paid attention I mean they didn't.
Downey -- find him guilty of everything.
-- Five murder counts were not guilty and so they obviously did their job seriously going to reverse.
-- did you hear about her -- and your manager didn't.
Well we're a multiple murders is an aggravated for the so obviously that gives them an aggravated circumstances argue with a penalty that's so obviously it's more than one would be.
Supplies without a change from what factors can you argue did try to save his -- again I don't wanna comment on that at this juncture it's still a gag order in about what we intend.
I don't think that it's -- -- -- And I think.
Tell us live in this -- person because it's.
Right in the present I don't know what about anything other than it was okay.
But again and that's not I was still under a gag order as far as what we intend to present -- Evidence is congenital.
Potential penalty for -- error and does so therefore I don't.
They'll well it it it it may be interesting to many -- -- that that he said he thought he was comfortable with his decision that he felt he made the right decision not to put Gaza -- on the on the stand.
For that matter he did not call any witnesses or present any evidence testimony.
And and the reason for that as I've been discussing here with the judge Napolitano is that.
Well one of the reasons possible.
Is that he was able to destroy one of the State's contentions.
That there is that these babies were born to a medical certainty that they were alive before he killed them.
And that the defense attorney in this case was able to get the State's expert witnesses to say that they could not say to any degree of -- within a degree of certainty.
That these babies were born alive.
That that these were not abortions per say but but live murders.
And and in that way it is possible that he thought.
I just -- this case.
Of course at the same time you had testimony from people who were inside the room.
The one who spoke of the well the toilet where one child was born.
And said the childless women.
And another who said that she played with the child before the doctor -- spinal cord.
So if you are reading into this the doctor -- experts who could not say with any degree of certainty that the babies are born alive.
And witnesses who said I saw them they were alive.
One could surmise that the judge that the jury believe those who -- actually in the room.
And whether he what he will do in this next phase of the trial he said and probably rightly under the orders of the court.
Is is a matter for another day that there's still a gag order in place.
