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…
