Defence barrister Laura Reece, are you proud of yourself?
What about the jury? Outlandish.
I know. Not to mention the driver himself (Caleb Wills), who should have been ashamed and pleaded guilty.
But I do put a lot of blame on lawyers in these sort of situations, because they know the tricks of the trade.
Don't blame the lawyers, blame the law.
Lawyers have no option but to argue their client's case as best they can. It is legally required of them, and the Legal Services Commission (or the equivalent in your state) makes sure of it.
