RUMPOLE AT WORK

This is our 3,147th post. To that reader who left a comment several years ago stating "you'll never make it past 3,146..." HA. We showed you. 

Crime Will Out. 
The wheels of justice grind slowly...

The year was 1977. On January 3, Apple Computer was incorporated, while the Commodore PET computer was demo'ed at electronic trade shows. 
Gary Gilmore was executed by firing squad in Utah, and President Gerald R. Ford pardoned US citizen Tokyo Rose for her collaboration with Japan in WWII. On January 20, James Earl Carter was sworn in as President. 

Fiona Apple was born, while Elvis Aaron Presley died, and in Miami, in the beginning of August, a nurse named Debbie Clark was viciously beaten and shot to death. 

This month, 39 years to the day of her death, Alan Bregman, 75, her paramour at the time, and a suspect from day one, was arrested and charged with her murder. 

Ovalle and the herald have the story here. 

Barry Wax for the defense. 

Rumpole at work. 
See You In Court.

A good judge, but a greater Man

Ah yes. 1977. Reggie Jackson shows up for game 6 and takes only 3 swings in 3 plate appearances and never puts the ball in play. And Howard Cosell makes one of the most famous comments in broadcast history: "ladies and gentlemen, the Bronx is burning." Al Davis wins a Super Bowl. Billy Martin wins a WS. Ali is still champ. Great year for the anti hero.

If that fingerprint and DNA hair is all the evidence they have, I don't think that the state could beat Barry's JOA motion.
