Maybe. In a case where a plea deal had already been reached, why in the closing remarks would a DA bring up something that wasn't part of the case or in the evidence? I mean it sounded like taking shots at the defendant. Is that normal?
JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?
Customer: NC. It was the lowest grade of felony one can get. The person downloaded a torrent file to watch a ***** ***** movie and ended up with child porn. There were witnesses that this wasn't intentional and it was immediately deleted. The detective believed him but because of the laws there still had to be a charge because there was still the signature of the file on the computer
. He was not charged with a sex crime. However in her closing remarks, the DA told the court
that he had admitted to watching the video while masturbating. I just don't understand.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: He is trying to get a copy of the detective's report. The case has been sealed because his wife's mother works at the courthouse.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything
