  7. If this jury is doing its job, they will deliberate to the point of being deadlocked. A hung jury is all that should result from this circus show. The State hasn't come close to guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. However, having no faith in anyone to uphold their personal responsibilities or follow the oath they took as jurors, they will convict. They will convict based upon sympathy for the victim, wild speculation and an inability to return to their community having acquitted the defendant. Wrongly, they will hold it against the defendant that he chose not to testify. In the end, all of you clamoring for justice will have your favorable verdict, and the defendant will be sent to prison for a lengthy period of time. Ultimately, because of the lack of evidence, a guilty verdict won't tell us that the defendant committed this crime. Conversely, an acquittal won't tell us that he is innocent.
    Maybe, we'll get that answer in the retrial after the appeals court overturns the verdict based upon the horrible evidentiary rulings made by the judge that opened the door for the conviction in the first place. Either way, retrial is the only word that sums up this disaster....... Feel free to warm yourself up to that idea, folks.....

  8. In appreciating proof beyond a reasonable doubt and eliminating bias and prejudice for and against each party... The State's case is a joke. Thank God it's a Porter County jury... They will convict despite the lack of substantial evidence. Love the t-shirt nonsense.

  10. Vouga and Barnes are dynamite defense attorneys. Too funny. Good to know Vouga's staff has nothing better to do than play on the Internet. Vouga is nothing more than a run of the mill DUI attorney. Barnes has never earned an acquittal on a murder charge at trial in his entire career. Of course, there is a first for everything. Hopefully, Vouga's ego and little man's complex won't get in the way of actually providing this kid the defense he deserves. Either way, just so we're clear, neither Vouga or Barnes care about the verdict. They've gotten paid and receive continuous publicity in the paper. No such thing as bad publicity. After all, they are simply running a business. The dead girl is just a prop. So, everyone go back to your little lives. This too shall pass.
