Were the police officer's shoes patent leather, corrected calf, or top grain leather?

isn't it illegal for the jury to discuss the case on a forum like this?

It very well may be, but no one is doing that here. The op is an attorney that is awaiting the jury's verdict.

Patent toe caps and corrected grain combo.

To their credit, the police knew of the location, located the dismembered part and the E.R. doctor was able to sew it back. The suspect was located at the location and in typical LAPD style...confessed.

The DA "cut" the defendant a good deal as the victim's initial conduct did not appear "sympathetic" and appealed only to the most prurient of interests.

Yes Mayhem, it still a crime in California





Not very creative. I recall an incident here on the East coast involving a glory hole, a remote, deserted public restroom facility, and two 9 inch antique hat pins.
It was hours before a good Samaritan happened by and summoned help...

I'm just trying to envision the cross examination of a witness for that case... "And after that, what happened to the severed penis?"

I always tell clients who insist on going to trial--with a jury--to look what the first one did in the OJ case. I know the feeling--when I hear some of the questions I wonder if they were listening at all! But, in all honesty, being a juror is a brutal experience. Good luck with the case.

So, the jury split the baby and agreed to vote not guilty on the first two counts if the holdout voted guilty on the last two.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
