The Bigger the Lie the more they Believe?
Are we hearing our ears? Can it be that the defense star witness is bolstering up testimony by saying that anyone can practice law in Mexico vs the witness for the prosecution law professor from UH Zamora? tHE DEFENSE LAWYER SAYING THAT THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE GET A LAW DEGREE IN MEXICO IS TO OBTAIN CULTURE? Is there a lawyer unified front to protect Celis? Was he practicing without a license?
Any lawyer other than Tony CAnales could not get away with such a brazen defense as "What he did was proper. As a mexican lawyer he can set up office in DC and can then can be a law firm operator in Texas but can still set up practice in DC."
Here's where he is in hot water: Most indictments are not dropped, just one count out of the 23. CGT website count: on one page it hit the print screen of Celis as an attorney and in another window it added two counts based on one web site because of two pictures but kept 22 counts.
Trying to negate the checks: Tony says he's not holding himself out as a lawyer: he never showed them to a third party? Hmmm, what about the bank itself. Supertechicalities don't add up.
If it was any other lawyer selling this it wouldn't sell. Can Tony sell this? Should Mauricio should have taken an early misdemeanor deal? He may have been better off taking the hit. He should not have held himself out as a lawyer. That is what separates him from the runners and lackeys for other attorneys.
What I cannot understand is why doesn't Watts have to testify? Why shouldn't Watts testify? he was a close link and checks and a letter of recommendation to a bank he held Mauricio out to be lawyer. Very strange....what is it, will the other shoe fall? Or is it that Carlos figures the waves of evidence are so strong that they don't need Watts? Maybe, Mikal would be a risk as a charismatic that would have hurt Carlos' case.
Vance Owen: Was Vance called at all?
What is going on readers? Please give us your opinion. Will Mauricio walk? Will there be a hold up juror?
More to come.
