Jury sends note to be read after verdict

No, not in that case...

... but in federal court before Judge William Dimitrouleas after an acquittal in which Bill Matthewman argued that the feds policy of not recording a defendant's alleged confession must be rejected. Below is the note.

Very interesting.
Maybe the Feds should re-think their policy of not recording post-arrest statements.
Just saying, but with all the technological advances, how do the Feds justify not recording? Last time I checked, this is 2011 and J. Edgar is long gone. Not a smart policy to not record in this day and age.

For all the plea lawyers: trial is the great equalizer. All the government dishonesty and manipulation comes to light.

Just try the case.

As my old friend Rick Sanchez used to say "If you're scared, get a dog."

For 11:47, "for all the plea lawyers"? Please, you dick. What percent of Federal cases plead? How many are by PD's, CJA lawyers, etc. Grow up.

Quite an intelligent jury.
