UNDERSTANDING TRIALS & Trying Dominique Strauss Kahn


THE CURRENT TENOR of pre-trial publicity in the French high level politician Dominique Strauss Kahn case, has changed from a "pre-trial conviction" to a Keystone Cop brigade now chasing the sexual assault victim. New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. is now portrayed by the media as a vilified bungler of high profile cases.

Should the defense attorneys be credited with the shift in this favorable publicity? Who is the shining star in the pre trial fiasco of the prosecution's preparation to convict Strauss? For attorneys and the public, this news article puts in perspective the differing duties of defense counsel to a client and the prosecutor's duty to act with fairness in pursuing the charges. http://reverbpolitics.blogspot.com
