WTF is wrong with the prosecutors down there? Perjury is admissible on cross as a prior bad act showing lack of truthfulness 99.9% of the time.
Even in New York, it came in. The only reason not to use it would be if the prosecutor WANTED her on the stand to cross. But he’d have to be sure of the conviction if she didn’t. I would just as soon keep her off.
Think back to nearly five years ago - to the spring of 2006 when the DukeLax Frame was in full roar. We followed it here on FR and in many blogs and boards elsewhere.
The Power Structure in Durham tried - and almost succeeded - in lynching three innocent people. There’s a battery of lawsuits still pending concerning that behavior.
That’s why they don’t want to talk about it.
