1) An ADA handling an appeal of a robbery case I tried a few years ago called to discuss the case:
Appeals ADA: Do you remember this case?
Pros. Dis.: Sure do. What's the issue?
Appeals ADA: I can't believe we got a conviction with that evidence.
Thanks for the support.
2) During my last trial. The defendant stabbed the victim in the abdomen severing an artery and causing doctors to remove a piece of her stomach. Our witnesses saw the defendant picking up a knife from the ground.
Defendant's father talking to defendant's attorney during a break in the trial:
Damn, you know that b***h is lyin'. You don't get those injuries from stabbin' with no knife. You get it from usin' an icepick.
Thank you sir. I did not discover how he knew that.
3) During a bail argument:
Prosecutor: In addition to the strength of our case, I should note the defendant has forty-three prior convictions.
Defense Attorney: Judge, I would like to note that only two of those are for felonies. And, of those forty-three convictions he has not had one warrant for failing to appear in court.
Judge: He should be very proud. Bail reduction denied.
You have to applaud the effort.
