A BIG NOT GUILTY

It was a big case. 
A big, weird case. 
So naturally, it was in Broweird. 

Here's one headline: 

Man who claimed girlfriend accidentally choked during oral sex found not guilty of murder. 



While the defense had moved pretrial to display the ...ah.....hmmm... appendage in question sounds about right- that never occurred.  The court had deferred on the ruling and the defense never re-erected the defense during trial. Perhaps they went soft, or otherwise had second thoughts. Sometimes discretion and remaining securely zipped up is the better part of valor, not to mention a wise trial strategy. 

So for our female readers, having been found not guilty...would you go out on a date with the defendant?

I saw Judge Martin Zilber with all the Judges in Naples. He looks great. The guy never ages. Being a Judge agrees with him. It looks like he is well loved by his colleagues and very respected by the lawyers. Well done.

Wait. They got a not guilty verdict in that case and the defense lawyer didn't light his pants on fire during closing argument?

Defense lawyer retained NOT FIRE RESCUE 911 but defense lawyer retained calls Homicide detectives and reports that there is a dead body at a residence. That same day less than 7 hours from time of call from defense lawyer to Homicide detectives the defense lawyers client was seen answering the door at the residence of the dead body. The time of death is later determined to have been 24 hrs to 4 days prior to this call to Homicide detectives. 24 hrs to 4 days the client made other calls to relatives and friends but not one call to 911.
