    Re: Media heads getting ready to explode over Weinstein trial jury results

    There was a guy from Law & Crime, a Dan Abrams production
    Law & Crime - Law and Crime News
    was a guest on FOX business, Jesse Weber of Law & Crime, has been following this case and has attended almost all the hearing. I found the video at FOX Business.
    Harvey Weinstein rape case expected to end in acquittal, hung jury: Analyst | Fox Business
    He believes that the prosecution made a very good case but so did the defense and it is his belief that this will either end in a hung jury or an acquittal. This could be where the rumor started. The fact that the article posted at FOX also states that the AP contributed to the article says it could have been spread to several places.

    One reason could be that he isn't guilty. Anyone think of that?
    How do you like being under government ordered house arrest for the crime of existing?

    He was pronounced guilty long ago, and now the courts need to demonstrate that they understand this and they must deliver. If they do not then they have failed and they must be fixed.

    This is how the Regressive Left thinks.

    I dont know what the verdict will be but I do know that the Elites of this country will only accept guilty. Anything else will be attacked, anyone who fails to sing the proper #METOO bromides will be punished for their lack of solidarity with the cause.

Expect accusations of a fix, cowardice, and so forth in the media, echoed by protests. But Harvey walks away with his walker, free. Dumps the California case as expected low hanging fruit, right in the trash. He won't even need to make a personal appearance in the California courts.

    It is difficult to get a rape conviction when both complainants maintained relationships, long after the supposed rapes, with the accused. One even claiming, in writing, he gave her the best orgasms of her life. Regretted sex acts are not rape.

    Rumors. Still 3 charges acquitted. Now the appeals, ala Sheldon Silver. Who do you think will die first, fat Shelley or fat Harvey? Who will cheat the hangman first?

    Appeals?

    On what grounds do you expect Weinstein to appeal on?

    He's welcome to appeal as much as he likes. He can spend all day in the prison library coming up with arguments. Its not gonna help him.

    The grounds are up to the creativity of his lawyers. My expectations are irrelevant. But you, the law student, the intern, should be able to come up with some conjecture. For all you know, one day you may represent a client in similar circumstances. Lawyers do not get to choose their clients, their clients choose them. Unless you plan on working strictly in the government, where corruption runs rampant and you will not be exempt, you need to view this case as practice to practice.

    Me, I am just busy laughing at the scandal of the week. The melodrama is most entertaining. Nothing in the entertainment industry will change, so many willing young starlets with stars in their eyes.

    I question how any "major source" could possibly know how the jury is leaning.
    They're stirring the pot obviously. The same happened with Cosby's trial and this is turning out to be no different.

    One can always expect the media to dig for some kind of ratings when the chips are down.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    The rest of it - you could have had me going, if it wasn't for the fact that I've both served as a juror in that courthouse, and worked there as an intern. And I'm in law school.
