        You almost feel sorry for Cy Vance. After numerous big cases blew up in his face, he finally gets the headline grabber he's been needing. And the defendant is the head of the IMF and a Frenchman, no less. And his complaining witness is a hard working immigrant from Africa, sexually assaulted by a rich guy (does this sound a little like the Duke "rape" case?). Trouble is, the complaining witness is a liar, crook, scam artist and hooker, among other talents. Things in the NYC prosecutor's office haven't been the same since Jack McCoy retired.

                    Apparantly those dolts on that jury weren't paying attention: In his opening statement Baez referred to sexual abuse as the reason for the b*tch's inability to tell the truth about anything. It wasn't mentioned again because the judge wouldn't permit it. Nothing a lawyer says is evidence. Is it possible those idiots factored "sexual abuse" into their verdict? Considered that fairy tale as "reasonable doubt?"

                      I'm tired of people blaming the jury. Blame the prosecution for failure to 100% prove Murder 1 - they're the ones who botched the case.

                        You could be right. Either way, it's a horrible miscarriage of justice. And the fact remains, with clever lawyering, you can manufacture "reasonable doubt" in the minds of credulous people.

                          And I have to imagine, even with these high-profile cases, we'll never know the true details of what was said, allowed, etc in the court. The media will show highlights, list certain key points, and general arguments, but that never will tell the whole story. And also, the jury can't hear "media experts on cases like this" like we can.
                          Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                            Absolutely. The great trial lawyer Louis Nizer wrote the definitive book about the Rosenbergs, called "Implosion Conspiracy," and he pointed out it's nearly impossible to tell how a trial is going by media accounts (in those days, no live TV of court proceedings, of course). But his point was you just can't judge the impact of testimony or evidence on a jury. It could be the young lady is actually not guilty. But in my mind, the only thing that would account for her blizzard of lies is the knowledge that the little girl was dead the entire time. The prosecution couldn't establish the time or method of death and that's a tough hurdle to clear if you're going to send a young person to the death chamber. Even so, I'd bet a month's pay she did it.

                              I tend to put the blame on the prosecution. It seemed like they just couldn't prove that she did it, and that was their job. The burden of proof and all.

                                The definition of first-degree murder is pretty strict. If she were on trial for manslaughter, I think they might've convicted her.
