Tony pulling this out of the fire for Mauricio ...is this sending a message that the jury was turned off by this case? Did the jury see that Mauricio was being railroaded or did they not buy into the D.A.'s theories.? Either way, some whisper that Carlos has egg on his face. All were abuzz when Tony stamped all over Carlos' exhibits!! The indignation that Tony showed some thought was a bit over the top but he did win the war of public perception. Caller Times did take Tony's side. The story in the Sunday paper spun this as a case of first impression and there is a good shot for appeal. How DID perceptions change when the law was so clear? No one had the chuzpah to do what Mauricio did and establish law firms. Carlos Valdez if he wanted to win should have come out and said: THIS GUY IS A RUNNER. He should have said, THIS GUY IS A RUNNER! I WILL SAY IT AGAIN!. What is solicitation: getting your foot in the door of a grieving family?. But then again we all know of others who do just that on a daily basis without redemption. But, they don't put their name up on the wall. What to do? Round one for Tony. Mauricio smirking to the cameras as he won this round. Will they go after money laundering? Will they look to bigger fish to fry like the Club who dealt with him. Text book prosecution: Where were the multiple defendants to get the desired effect of turning on each other. Why were'nt any of the CGT members ever indicted? Food for thought. Hada? Pineda? Why was Pineda in the courtroom? Mr. Church guy with the canary yellow porshe?????
Will Mauricio if sentenced to six months subject to probation be able to stay clear of danger and trouble in Kaelin's jail? Mucho Cuidado Mauricio! Alalva!
Is Carlos Valdez taking the whips and scorns of time and the proud man (Tony C's) contumely as Shakespeare would say until Round 2 when he brings out heavy artillery and the checks or will he take it on the chin and move on? Will the A.G. lick its wounds and then the might of Abbott (ironsides) come back with vengeance and fury like an archangel?
