The Everyday Bombshell

My advice is, if you are accused of a crime... don'tt just get a lawyer, get a SMART one. This defense attorney was a moron and if no help whatsoever. You don't just react in habit and put up a toilet seat after your wife was killed in your home and you had to kill a person who killed her, just because you do it daily. Your first reaction would actually be "My son is a coming in here for any reason anytime soon I don't want him to see this." PARENTING 101. Now a better lie would've been "I was so nervous after killing a man, I had to pee" Also the lawyer is definitely not an expert in human anatomy... the 'Deathgrip' he mentioned would only hold the hand closed if the nerve bundles and muscles remain uninjured. The defense attorney may believe what he sees on tv but you shouldn't. Why didn't he provide the jury with a reputable medical expert who would agree with him rather than just say "believe me, a lawyer completely uneducated in medical facts, over the medical professional who actually studied the dead dude"? Find out where your lawyer went to school and make sure he isn't in the bottom of his class. 🙄
