JERRY SANDUSKY TRIAL- prosecution rests…defense case begins this week.

I’m on Its Your Call with Lynn Doyle tonight (http://vimeo.com/44174102) and I am scheduled to go out to the central PA courtroom Wednesday to cover the trial live for TRU-TV (formerly Court TV)

The former coach is now claiming his behavior was mere histrionics disorder. Histrionics is classically thought of as a “women” disorder where the patient exhibits emotionality and sexuality in attention seeking behavior. Its name comes from the latin for actor and relates to the disorder’s feature of over dramatization. Im not sure defense will be persuasive that the coach was merely being a “drama queen”. He will now have to be subject to a prosecution psych exam and that is likely to result in very different findings.

Bill to Criminalize DWI Moves Forward

 

6/5/12

A bill to make some make some DWI into criminal offenses (rather than traffic) moved forward through theNJ Assembly rapidly yesterday. The bill would make 2 dwis within 60 days a fourth degree crime. The bill was generated quickly after a Vineland man was arrested for 5 dwis in weeks in April and May. The State Bar has not had a chance to comment.
