Can Judge Murphy legally sentence Eric Rivera to life?
We say no, attorney David Weinstein says yes. We invited him to present his argument, and we have it here, completely unedited. You decide.
Mr. Weinstein, as the guest, goes first.
Rumpole's argument (which isn't really a response since, believe it or not, we didn't read his argument until after we wrote ours.)
That's more than enough law for this blog for one day.
Enjoy the weekend.
The survivors in the survivor pool fight on. We lost one last week.
See You In Court.
