First: A big congrats to Rick Docobo for a big NG Thursday before Judge Verde on a murder case. The defense rested and then the Defendant decided he wanted to testify. It's an old PD/Jedi Master mind trick. It apparently befuddled ASA Santiago Aroco who handled the case for the State. The Defendant's brother testified against him and Docobo still walked him! Well done. Well done indeed.
