Phil Spector Trial ~ Blood Spatter 101 Class ~ According to Defense Witness
Ya Gotta give it to Spector attorney, Doron Weinberg. He made defense witness Stuart James actually do a blood splatter 101 class for the entire court to see. Not only that, they brought it the ACTUAL CHAIR LANA CLARKSON WAS KILLED IN!
Mr. Weinberg felt a little drama was due, but one look at Lana's Mom, Donna, and you knew it was gruesome. Ms Clarkson had to put up a kleenex to her face...the actual chair that her daughter was last sitting in. Wow, and guess what, Joe's position in the courtroom is good and I swear I saw a tear run down her eye.
Ok so back to Mr James. He makes $ 250 an hour to give results that favor the truth.
He charges $ 250 per hour plus expenses like airfare, hotel, meals, etc.
He works for the DA's office 20 % of the time and 80% for the defense. Nice averages!
His price so far????Anyone? Anyone?? Bueller?? Ok, he has billed Mr Spector $70,000 so far.
Joe knews this dude James is qualified, but some of the questions he was asked were so lame.
DW: You're a member of the Forensic Scientists or whatever it was , correct?
James: Well, "we haven't actually met in the two years", but when we do, we yippee tie one on. Ok so he didn't say the last part...but "haven't met in 2 years" strikes Joe, odd????
I mean DW was fishing today...trolling the expert for theories....trying to shoot holes in Dr Lyn Herold's conclusions..the only problem..this witness has had training in small cities you may never have heard of. Yes he did work in Tucson, but that's about it.
By the way some individual left the courtroom in a hurry because thier cell phone beeped and wasn't allowed back in . Joe's advice to all the non-pros out there.....Leave youre cell phones out. Later!
Just the facts ma'am, just the facts....
