Or just to be safe, do both.
They are covering a case from the late 1980s. My client was convicted on the flimsiest of evidence, following an interrogation without her parents or counsel being present,. She was interrogated by an expert hypnotist who is still going around the country doing the same thing. I am preparing two articles, and which one I publish depends on how the producers handle the story. If it is fairly presented, I have one story. If it turns out to be a hit piece and continues the lies, I have anohter.
It is a story that involves an unscrupulous district attorney, a lying duplicitous psychologist, a professional interrogator whose specialty is getting confessions, even if they are false. Also a judge who did not recuse himself despite his own personal psychological baggage. Then the police investigator who wanted to do the right thing, but was beaten down by those in authority. I intend to call it like it is. I just hope they do a fair and even handed story, and not a hit job on my client. As for me, I am a big boy and can take care of myself.
My former client now has a truly formidible team of lawyers. Her former lawyer, now a judge, won’t return my calls.
I asked the producer for a copy of the show after it airs. I have not heard back. I turned my cable off because we never watch the regular channels, so I can’t get it. Would somebody please record this and send me a copy on DVD?
I’ll be watching, but people should definitely check their local listings. Down in Florida it airs at 10:00pm eastern.
“A college code is found dead in her dorm room?”
The camera operator was a really nice guy when they did the interviews. He asked where my camera was so he could get some pictures for me. I got it and he took several photos, including a couple off his monitor.
You know, you don’t really SEE yourself when you look in the mirror every day. Also, I don’t do “selfies.” My former son-in-law commented after I lost my son in 2007, that I had always carried my age well, and people often thought I looked twenty years younger than my actual age. But he said that I had aged years in the span of two months after we lost Tim. Since Tim died, my grandson and wife both died in 2011, I was surprised to see how drawn and haggard I looked in the pictures he took but probably should not have been surprised. The photo I am using for a Gravitar was taken before all that happened.
Trauma ages us all. When I had my first MI at age 37, within a month my hair had turned from dark blond to grey white and I lost a lot of the hair on my forehead. Curiously, since my transplant I have more hair on my forehead than I’ve had for 30 years. however, that was physical trauma.
The losses you have suffered were far greater than anything I’ve experienced and occurred in a relatively short time. It is a testament to you, your psychological strength and the help of those that love you, that you are not only able to carry on, but to flourish in some areas.
How fantastic….. Paula has been one of my favorites since the late 80s 90s…..I like the team with Catherine, Harry and Paula….. CBS morning news…..
Chuck, No cable at my house, either. Perhaps I can get the episode online. At any rate, I’ll be particularly interested in hearing your take on how they present the story.
You can watch the ID channel on your computer…..
So much for fair….can’t wait to hear what you have to say..
