I agree. Kronk was not helpful to the defense, IMO.

The defense has to thank themself for that...their opening statement was so mind blowing that they set the bar so high and at that point changed the normal proof for the prosecution to the defense having to proof their BS.

You just can't throw everything out there without any backup, that is what will fire back at them and they probably will try on appeal to say that the defense didn't do their job and ask for a retrial...

This will hurt Baez and Mason's career! They thought to be able to cash in from this trial later on, I think people will avoid them as a their defense lawyers.

All the defense has to do is create reasonable doubt in the minds of a few jurors. The closing statements will try to tie everything together for the state and for the defense.

Yes, you can "just throw everything out there*.......I've seen it done many times. As for appeals, the first appeal will involve pointing out judicial error ONLY. That will probably take 2 to 4 years. And, yes, there probably will be at least one or two claims of ineffective assistance of counsel down the road. But at this point, it's hard to tell where it's going to go. I don't think she will get the death penalty. She shouldn't. It hasn't been proven.

No, it won't hurt the careers of Baez and Mason. People will just remember the names....not necessarily the details of the trial. Besides, we don't know what the verdict will be yet. Hard to judge how this trial will affect the careers of the defense attorneys until you know what the verdict is.
