-- -- back in session on the docket today the man accused of holding three women captive in Cleveland for a decade.
Attorneys for aerial Castro.
Now reportedly say that he will plead not guilty.
All kidnapping rape charges and they're also saying it is not -- -- the way the media is portraying their client.
They -- -- not a monster but instead just a loving father.
And that his innocence will come out as this case progresses.
And -- now Arthur -- dollar former prosecutor now defense attorney just billboards -- pedigree.
Wow really eat.
I mean I got to admit I am surprised that he's gonna plead not guilty I know.
Everybody does and it is that I I kind of thought it would all be a bargaining about what the charges are what the punishment would be.
I got some rock Arthur.
You just -- everybody does it's too early in the proceedings having you don't just in March your client and even if -- tell you already.
I want to plead guilty I wanna get dissolved with the you know just.
Not a weaker ten days after it happened just a guilty there's a lot -- that goes into the prosecutor -- would even have an offer on the table at this point we have they're gonna have one.
What I think we need to it having a com.
Peddling this -- it's a look at what the the exact quote was and the quote that their defense is one of events -- he said is we came here to make sure.
That people can exercise their constitutional right to have an attorney and a fair trial.
This is simply.
To ensure the integrity of the process.
And sometimes that means you have to take -- debacle that hard and hard cases and I've elected to do that so he's a true believer.
They -- -- is it can't -- not guilty and he is not the monster depicted in the news reports I mean.
-- you tell me how -- gonna sell that to a jury.
If they get anyone.
Any one of the three victims to testify know it and I'm sure all three victims well testified -- I've been practicing long long time and I'm good at it the only person better is probably aren't there.
Meaning he would not get.
And not guilty in -- case we've got that talk.
-- the elderly dad got that didn't they -- a aren't there and I get out of -- -- you know -- he.
-- look good bad how bad this guy you -- -- there is no.
And then we had an act ill and then are there I got -- a and we etc.
that's and then -- the attorney comes says quote.
I can tell you that mr.
Castro is extremely committed to the well being.
And positive future for his daughter Jocelyn who he loves dearly -- are you kidding me.
Well you know he may wait -- doesn't -- also say he's a lawyer goes -- to say I like I know that sounds crazy but it's true.
He's and I know another -- hugging a little girl hey have you I know that doesn't make sense but it should -- and the bottom line is this six year old.
-- -- these horrific and tragic circumstances.
Was born -- that house and did grow up -- -- -- house and the reports are when she came out immediately thereafter she was saying where's my daddy where's my dowdy.
I don't know what -- ensure that we don't know everything I -- -- know about his concern for her well being that shouting at locked inside a prison for six years of her life.
Job yet this to -- the fact that he is acting like he cares about that little girl is even more group.
That he is I'm not job and belonged ours for the rest and let him.
Why not quite -- and that's important hot.
Simply wait but I want to pick and I want to pick up -- nut job.
Because that may be where they're gone after the break.
Farther ideology honest -- back with me now and that's the question nut job -- you use that term he has.
Told police when we're told that he is a sex addicts and cannot control his impulses.
So that's good that.
As good as -- doping -- Pineda could that mean he knows the difference between right and wrong.
And can't control -- up and that describes probably everybody who's ever been on death row.
It it in an America that that is not.
It insanity defense that's up -- he's gonna try to mitigate the fact that he tortured these women for ten.
-- years but that's not gonna get -- not sure haven't insanity defense Arthur how old.
Own little date.
-- -- not guilty verdict in this case I don't I don't get it.
They walk they won't let's be realistic they are gonna go in there and it's just what the attorneys said they gonna make sure everyone plays by the rules that the government.
Obeys the -- build -- the evidence goes in the proper way the judge rules the proper way.
That's that's the greatness of the United States of America.
Chances here is he's go to jail for the rest of his life we just the death -- we just have to do with the right -- about a.
How -- what's on the business about there's nothing his client that their client cares more about that -- six year old daughter Jocelyn.
Who you know he's so worried about her well being a positive future I mean is that trying to softened jury pool and my guess -- Is that the truth my guess is what he meets with his lawyers.
That's always asking about -- probably the only thing he had a connection with its library is not what I know it sounds crazy but it's primarily true.
You think this man is capable of having a connection absolutely not but it's capable of being -- not to try to make it look like he had the connection but what does that lawyers that's not a given the verdict I think it's gonna do it -- -- -- -- -- before the break he he he not in what could have some other children according to the reports.
And Ed he's accused of having killed them and their mothers -- and I'm Izturis got it absolutely should go to he should be you know.
Lethally injected that happened and girls have testified that yeah and that's -- -- -- that -- -- -- the jury will now aren't panel think.
