“We had a robbery trial that was scheduled for today. One of our three investigators that attended Sy’s expert class had prepared an extensive PowerPoint presentation—-. He was able to place all five co-defendants at the robbery and other locations related to the robbery. He was hoping to use this case toward his expert certification but once again the defense was presented with the Commonwealth Attorney’s open file policy and ALL FIVE plead guilty. We are talking about 22 years a piece. Not a gift by any means.
My point is that the product works too good in the sense that it is so visually damning to the defendant that they almost always plead guilty when confronted.” -Virginia
