About this case with our legal panel today Arthur -- -- is -- -- a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney Joseph the Bennett and also criminal defense attorney with us.
Joseph I'm sure you've had some difficult clients as a criminal defense attorney what what do you think about what -- areas did yesterday did she help her case.
Well everything was not so negative I think she scored significant points when she when she told the jury look.
Don't do this for me spare my family they are the innocent victims in this case.
That the jury clearly does not find her credible.
But her family say did it save me.
To help my family sort of my family.
Will not be riddled with guilt so I think there was some positive that came out of -- -- -- although bizarre.
There was some positive the jury Arthur is not supposed to know.
Maybe they do but they're not supposed to know what she said immediately after they convicted her when she said I'd rather.
Die than spend the rest my life and -- Yes but I'll tell you in any case now.
The biggest violation of jurors -- the removal and the role they violate is they're told don't go on Google don't go on the Internet and they do.
It used to be very easy to hide the New York Post from jurors it is so different about -- -- from them so presumably they've.
Heard that he is the big thing that was missing yesterday John although -- is right on when they're talking about it it's.
Heartfelt about apparently where it was a family.
-- -- had every right to testify she said that her mom her attorneys told her don't put -- mom on the stand because she's gonna hurt your case how that happened.
A mother pleading for the life of a child how that -- I just wonder if there are a lot of -- nations here.
To try to get her a new trial or retrial I mean she.
Are her attorneys tried to quit.
The other day.
Clearly I mean we're at the stage here now where it's let's throw everything up Darren and let's see what sticks may be -- -- a hail marry pass that that that will land.
But you know after all she is fighting for her life so.
You you can't blame her for trying anything and everything when her when her attorney got up -- -- army instead I don't really like her seven out of eight days -- like that.
I mean is that grounds for a new -- out.
Yeah actually gives him a lot of credibility and indeed does and in terms I've said it doesn't look like climbing -- -- the sharpest tool in the shed but that doesn't mean he committed XYZ.
Crime here's what's happening John you have a jury who heads swiftly decided on her guilt relatively swiftly and they decided on -- guilt.
On the highest count.
You have a jury then swiftly decided that this was a crew.
Way of killing someone.
And I think you're gonna have a jury that's swiftly comes to the conclusion.
To give our the most severe penalty they believe is whether that the death penalty or life without parole that's up to that but I don't think this is going to be a -- dragged out.
Process but interest in the point that -- made if she gets the death penalty she doesn't -- any more TV time she doesn't get any more interviews.
She's getting everything in now she's doing her best to fill the airwaves and she's been quite successful and that may be more severe punishment she -- -- I'm not -- she's out of the limelight it's over we don't hear from -- anymore we'll see what the jury decides Arthur a dollar Bill Bennett I don't but I don't.
