Oh yes, there will be an Orleans Parish jury made-up the fine citizens of New Orleans.
And in the trial of Mr. O'Keefe, you can expect at least one of his co-conspirators to testify against him.
BTW-The prosecutor will be Jim Letten who has no problem with sending political figures to prison.
Am I in the twilight zone or do defense attorneys assess and select the jurors?
That’s how we do it in Texas.
The alleged crime took place in Orleans Parish and the jury will be made-up of people from the New Orleans area.
And no, the defense attorney does not select the entire jury but they can strike a certain number of prospective jurors.
i still do not think the story will turn out as reported. but,
having been wrong many times in life, i’ll just have to wait
Yes, they have been quick out of the starting blocks this time.
Shakespeare misquote alert. Sorry, but this is number one on my list of things that sound literate but really are the opposite.
Apparently O'Keefe's Plan B was to rat out Flanagan and Basel to Feds and save his own ass.
If they're doing another sting about prostitution, they got the wrong Louisiana senator.
The most obvious explanation for him to record this (as I noted earlier) is so that he’s have the option to turn state’s evidence and save his own ass.
Hmmmm... that “immediately released from jail” tends to support my theory. I smell a rat (in the “betrayer of his co-conspirators to save his own ass” sense of the term).
And if you do, make sure you have a fall guy. O’Keefe’s making a video recording of his partners doing the illegal deed suggests that he figured out that part, at least, but it didn’t work out because he got caught red-handed at the scene rather than being tracked down later when the bug was discovered.
Trying to sneak into a United States Senator’s office, and tampering with the phone system while pretending you work for the phone company. What could go wrong?
