I Feel Your Pain

I feel sorry for the defense attorney in a murder case where the jury took just 15 minutes to find his client guilty. And that was with an alibi defense. Ouch. We've all been there, though. We used to joke sometimes that if the jury was out longer than our closing argument lasted, it was a victory.

Sad, but true. I interned in the Fed PD's office in So. Cal a few years ago - mostly illegal aliens and drug transport cases - and the success rate at trial was almost zero. They got their small victories from how long the jury was out. If the jury was out over two hours, it was a good fight.

Must've been one shoddy alibi defense for it to have been rejected in 15 minutes, though. Maybe it was this alibi.
