The jurors in this case are scheduled to return to court a week from tomorrow to hear evidence in the sentencing phase.
When they're scheduled to decide whether doctor got -- will die for his crimes.
-- is with us now -- defense attorney.
Live in Philadelphia and she's been all over this case from the very beginning this next phase.
Could be very different from the first in that the defense might actually present it present a case.
Well that's exactly right Jeff as you know the defendant -- in college single witness during their case they'll have to call witnesses during the part they're part of the next part of the case.
He aggravating phase I don't think will be very -- and I think you've heard earlier in the show that there are aggravating factors that are pretty undeniable of the victims are under twelve years old.
However in the mitigating phase the only real.
-- eight mitigating factors doctor -- now only really falls under wine and that's character and record of good deeds.
So someone that is going to have to testify to his character and record of good -- In the end.
Whether you put him on the stand is still up for debate.
And I guess -- if the decision has been made we don't know about it but history tells us.
Some times when jurors meet the person in question and hear from that person some minds change.
Well that's absolutely right and you know the problem here is -- doctor -- Dallas facing another trial in September for -- federal drug charges that the original raid was for the drug issues and he's facing a trial on September.
So they run the risk by putting him on the stand that they're gonna open him up some questions with regard to that trial.
Which would be a reason not to put him on the stand however as you stated it may be their only real hope.
To save him from the death penalty what in the way every action there.
Oh gosh you know people in Philadelphia have been following this pretty closely and people feel like the jury really gave a true and honest verdict they thought about it.
It makes sense to people which of the four.
Babies -- they were found he was found guilty of the baby that he was not found guilty of it it seems to be a true verdict and I think people here are happy to have -- and happy to see ago.
-- the law here in Pennsylvania has changed with regard to regulation of abortion because of this case.
And so we're happy to have been able to hopefully move past all that's.
