Tru TV's In Session

Not to go all Womble on everyone, but I did want to post that I'm very excited to be appearing on Tru TV's In Session today and on Monday to talk about the Susan Wright re-trial.

On Friday, I'm scheduled to be on between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. (CST) and on Monday, I think the schedule is 8 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Today's topic:  Why couldn't the Harris County District Attorney's Office have found someone better looking than John Jordan to replace me as second chair in the re-trial?

What? LOL? Are you still a practicing attorney?
I just saw you on HLN and you made some interesting points and or facts.
First, to get this out of they way, when you said that Susan didn't have any emotion when she was found guilty, to be honest, I'm not surprised. I'm not a criminal, I'm just an everyday, ordinary person. I think that if I were ever found guilty of a traffic ticket or murder (god for bid) I would be stunned and I don't think that I would have any "emotion" as you said Susan didn't have. I don't like it when prosecutors focus on that, if they cry, then you all say they are crying because they got caught and the game is over, if they look shocked and show it, then you all say it's because they think, "how dare them, they didn't believe me". That's what I have to say about that.
When you said she was "flirtatious" during the first trial, I thought you were exaggerating at first. I remember I saw this on 48 hours ID (some show like that) and I didn't remember seeing that, but when HLN played what you were talking about.. My goodness, what is up with Susan? She was on trial for her life. I don't know, maybe that's what happens when you lose it, I don't know, you sure have me thinking. I'm shaking my head.
I am sure that her husband was abusive. Did he deserve what happened? I can't see anyone doing something so dastardly, I am just glad that I'm not on that jury.
If you don't mind me asking, say if you lose a big case, are the prosecutors fired? I heard Marcia Clark when they didn't prove their case with O.J. (grrr that is one case that boils my blood)
Thanks for taking time to read my comment.

Amy, under the current administration there is always the possibility a prosecutor could get fired for losing a case if the DA in her skewed mind thought doing so would deflect possible criticism from the public for losing the case. Under previous administrations where the DAs came up through the ranks trying cases and experienced heartbreaking losses themselves, those DAs would be the first to buy you a beer and commiserate with you.

Quit complaining! Look at what replaced Neal and Todd .. Needed the bed reinactment for the jurors to understand the mechanics of what really happened. just saying!

"Better looking than John Jordan"? You lost me there.

Mark,

I thought we had agreed that this blog is not an appropriate forum for you to air your completely inappropriate man-crush on John Jordan.

In the first trial, I'm not trying to get on you Texan's, but when the prosecutor (the woman and I for got her name, I want her on my side BTW, never against me) but when she said to Susan with her Texas accent"
Did you get tired stabbing him one hundred AND NINEDY (SP) TIMES" She caught my attention. The bed reenactment,sucked for the defense, great for the prosecution.
I hear she is up for parole in 2012, she should of just settled with that, in my mind, that was a gift.

I think, susan wright shouldn't have had another sentencing but it's the law but still even if she has another chance I think she is still going to be punished and even worse! I think she is going to get life in prison because death penalty would be a gift for her. because what she did to a human being, the father of her children, her partner.is just unjustifiable and those 190 something stab wounds was just too much! she probably planned the whole thing and tortured her husband stabbing him all those times before murdering him just so she could make up the story that she was a victim of domestic abuse! this story is so horrible and sad for the victim's family and also for the defendant's family because I can't imagine what they will be going through knowing that one of their own is a monster capable of doing something like that rather than walking away from a relationship that was probably not working. god bless everyone affected by this!

Pray tell, what is an appropriate number of stab wounds?

Murray, any truth to the rumor that a real movie deal on Susan Wright is official?

Black Ink's blog sure seems to have some intricate details that would indicate they are making a show on Lifetime about Susan Wright.

I'm very concerned about whoever is in charge of casting. Since Rodney Dangerfield died, I have no idea who will play Doyle.

Why would Doyle even be in the movie? He just laid there. You did all the work, Murray!

And I hope they point out how Brian Wice screwed Susan's sentence up. I wonder if that girl even knows what he did to her.

Now, just because Doyle got to lay down through his entire portion of the trial doesn't mean he wasn't a contributor. I didn't do much on the case compared to Kelly, and I did totally wimp out on doing the bed demonstration!

Please don't anyone be fooled by Susan Wright's apology to the family...that apology was for the parole board which she will be facing in a few years. And parole boards always want to hear an apology!!!
