Oh, The Glamorous Life


DM –  An agitated murder defendant poured a cup of water over his attorney’s head during trial just as jurors were getting ready to start their deliberations. Jerome Power, 50, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, dumped the water on attorney Steve Addington, of Des Moines, catching Addington, jurors, and the judge off guard. Power, charged with first-degree murder, has been accused of strangling his 68-year-old neighbour, Doris Bevins, to death in her home on September 19, 2010. ‘It should have been a mistrial,’ Power shouted after dumping the water on Addington, ‘You sold me out!’

Go ahead. Watch L.A. Law, Law and Order, Matlock, or The Practice. The chances of the regular lawyer getting a cup of water poured on his head during the course of an average day is a heck of a lot more realistic.

P.S. What's up with this camera angle and the perfect photo? I'm not sure the photographer didn't slip ol' Jerome there a pack of smokes to give Mr. Addington an impromptu bath.

The lawyer's probably just glad he didn't get hit with the pitcher of water. There will be no mistrial; judge will simply instruct the jury to disregard the defendant's behavior (c'mon, Barry, you missed a topical headline: "The Charge: Aquatic Assault!").

Funny.

A murderer who is such a P---- with no morals or a conscience to want a mistrial because he has no fiscal responsibility to stand up and admit he's a murderer.

Lefty.

I have more respect for David Malone than this fool.

Hey Lefty,
I don't understand how admitting to murder is fiscally responsible. You shouldn't use words you don't understand.

I've been a juror on a murder and attempted murder trial.

...and I can say that both juries would have tacked on extra years during the sentencing phase had we seen that.

Too bad Iowa dropped the Death Penalty.

Just showing the peeps he is guilty as charged. That's like most that get arrested, GUILTY!!! And defense attorneys try like hell to get them off.

I must apologize. I cannot find any compassion for any attorney in any situation. Hot coffee would have been a better choice.
