You Are A Much Different Person In Trial

Yesterday I was told by a prosecutor (after setting a case for Jury Trial), "I hear you are a much different person in trial."

I questioned what that meant … but the prosecutor started back-peddling, saying, "I don’t know," and "I don’t remember where I heard that from."

So, what does that mean??

The only other time I heard something like that, was from the boss of a prosecutor after I had won a pretty high breath test case. (I think it was a .12 or .13).  Anyway, that comment was something along the lines of, "I heard you pulled some crap in that trial the other day."  I didn’t really think I did.  My response to that one was much easier:

Do you really think a) I was unethical, or b) the prosecutor is trying to explain to their boss why they lost a case that they easily should have won?  I think the latter is the more obvious answer.

So, anyway, I don’t know if these two are related or not.  Heck, I don’t even know for sure what the prosecutor this time meant?  Aggressive?  Unethical?  Mean?  Oh well…
