My client has the worst case.
Anything incriminating you can imagine, this case has it. Fingerprints, DNA, video, eyewitnesses, written confession, videotaped confession, incriminating evidence in his pockets, in his home, in his red hands... you name it, they've got it.
Yet he's turned down offer after offer. He insists he wants to go to trial.
Yesterday, I went to see him. I don't want to force him into a plea, but he's going to regret passing up this final offer.
"No," he kept saying, "Let's go. I want my ominous hearing. Let's do my ominous hearing. When is my ominous hearing? Tell them I want my ominious hearing."
And all I can think is, "Damn right this hearing is going to be ominous."
