Sheppard v. Maxwell

Sheppard v. Maxwell

Does instant media, equate to instant appeals

From Stanley Schneider’s point of view and that of Freeman and his family: Did you appreciate the effect of the posting from an appellate perspective?
In this media-hungry world, in this day of non-stop 24-hour “breaking” news, should we be surprised? Probably not.

 

Might we still hope that there exists some remnant of integrity and sense of decency when it comes to writing or posting whatever piques our interest? We can only wish.

maybe Kelly Siegler can help the State of FLorida…

” …death row is the typical destination for most of Siegler’s targets.”

Kelly Siegler is known as a giant-killer in Texas, having won high-profile prosecutions against some of the state’s best known, and most highly regarded, defense attorneys. Siegler began her career with the prosecutor’s office in Houston 15 years ago. Since then, her felony conviction rate at trial is 95 percent, and the wins include the convictions of clients of top-flight defense attorneys Richard DeGuerin, Joe Bailey, Stanley Schneider, Mike DeGuerin and George Parnham. She handles only big cases — she’s tried 13 capital murder cases and won death penalty verdicts in 12. [link is an old-best of houston 2008]

 

She resigned as Assistant district attorney, Harris Co., Texas DA office last year [May 9, 2008]. I wonder what she’s up to now.

Siegler rose to become a leading prosecutor. She has handled more high-profile cases than any other local prosecutor, possibly becoming the best known locally and nationally.

Most recently, she successfully argued to convict former coach David Temple of murdering his pregnant wife, Belinda, a Katy school teacher.

In 2004, she brought a bed before the jury to personally demonstrate how defendant Susan Wright butchered her husband by stabbing him 193 times.

After eight days of testimony, Siegler has the last word:

“What you’re left with is the word of Susan Lucille Wright, the word of a card-carrying, obvious, no doubt about it, caught red-handed, confirmed, documented liar.”

Now, it’s up to the jury to decide, and just as Siegler had feared, jurors have trouble seeing Susan as a murderer. But it’s hard for them to forget the blood-soaked bed, and they had it reassembled when they deliberated.

Two days later, they reached a verdict: guilty.

How much is a guilty verdict worth to the State of Florida? Maybe they can have the Pontiac Sunbird brought into the court room. Maybe a field trip to the site where the remains were found, even though the area has been totally gutted of any form of familiar foliage that was their when the 911 calls from Mr. Kronk came in ..3 of them, cleared with in-days of the remains being found.  Will the impact of standing in the area devoid of the trash and foliage be enough to influence the jury?

I think Ms. Lyon is a great choice, but Ms. Siegler has the appeal to both the jury,  the media, and the viewers.

“You can tell it is an Anthony posting when it says;”

…something you do not agree with (nutshell version of another persons reply to someone defending Casey, the case it’s self and other issues) here is comment I read. (see below).

To Sxxxx

“You can tell it is an Anthony posting when it says:”
[Note- I did not correct spelling from orig. post]
1- No one knows what happened to Caylee so far.
2- Know one knew any of these people before this tragedy.
3- Why is everyone so sure that the Grunds are inocent and Casey is so gulity?
4-Stop judging everyone involved including Casey.
5- Let it play out in court.

Therefore, you are telling us that it is in your opinion that only an Anthony [member] feels this way. Hum. That got me to wondering how much we assume that everyone is alike, how we all feel that we know everything, and most of all how that grand example of the old adage about how you spell “assume,”


2,045,322 in Orlando, FL Approximately 2008
1,018,057,389 is approximately the amount of Internet users in the [yes the] WORLD


IMO- [above the numbers do not lie] I checked the numbers and the odds, and the percentages, and based on these census figures, that the idea that no other than a person, in the World, I limited it to internet users, as they would be more apt to have access to Hal’s TV Guy blog.
I will have to disagree with your statement as, it may be valid in your own mind, home and circle of friends, I do not think it covers the world, therefore I again will say the what I have been all along, I am not an Anthony, but I do feel the following is also a valid argument. Just as you feel that your opinion is valid. But to say that it’s an Anthony.. is for a lack of a better word…Lame.

 

This is my opinion-

-No one knows what happened to Caylee so far,

not even Dr. G.

-Know one knew any of these people before this tragedy. 

I know I did not do you know them prior to this case?

-Why is everyone so sure that the Jesse Grund is innocent and Casey is so guilty? 

After finding out there is nothing directly linking Ms. Anthony to the site..  I am not sure of anything about this case.  I admit I am not losing sleep either.

-Stop judging everyone involved, including Casey. 

I am not making judgment on your opinion; I am offering others another opinion to read.

-Let it play out in court

Otherwise, lets just shut down the complex includes a 23-level courthouse tower, two five-story office buildings for the State Attorney and Public Defender.

Save One BIg company, at the cost of losing 3o+ others…it’s not good: President Obama, retooling his statement right before my eyes (and ears), on TV

Save One BIg company, lose 3o+ others...it's not good: President Obama,
retooling his statement right before my eyes (and ears), on TV 

60 days and a substantial portion of the stimulus fund that went
to stricken auto makers General Motors Corp. (GM), Chrysler
LLC and GMAC LLC, the auto-lending arm of GM, as part
of the US$700 billion Troubled Asset Relief (TARP) program
in the United States. 

So it Bush's fault, he, President Obama is now doing this speech, how
are we going to teach our children to take responsibility,
when our President does not own his own decisions, we was
a senator, in assented that was in majority at the time President
Bush was considering this move.
 
I guess Sen. Obama, was too busy passing out the Kool-aid.
Remember the private directors are the same group they
just took the names and moved them around on paper.

 

So we save GM, but what about their vendors, $32 billion

how many more bankruptcy

will update more tonight 6.01., 2009
