    If Bill invites you over for Jell-o shots to celebrate his release, I would be very wary.

    ^^^ That would be even worse. At least, you can kind of inspect a Jell-o shot for powder...

    This is just the law. Itís basic law school evidence. The trial judge was wrong to let in that evidence because the law says he was wrong. The DAO was wrong to essentially give him immunity and then renege on it. Our Supreme Court in PA is a very good one right now and they are making a LOT of ver good rulings based on the law, including and especially in cases involving poor black defendants. Iíve personally practiced in front of two of our Supreme Court judges when they were trial judges and they are not dumb people. I am really liking a lot of their legal rulings. If this was allowed to stand (particularly the 404(b) decision) it would actually screw over my clients (mostly black defendants) more than anyone else.

    Edit: these are not technicalities. Not even kind of. One is a violation of the PA Rules of Evidence. It is such a serious violation that even BEFORE this case our Supreme Court stated that prior bad acts are only second to a defendantís confession when it comes to how prejudicial it is. 404 evidence is very difficult to get in because thatís the intent of rule 404. And charging someone when you gave them immunity is justÖ wrong. I think itís unconstitutional. Not a technicality.
    I've always been under the impression that DAís get away with a lot of shady stuff and that you need really good lawyers (lots of $$$) to fight them/hold them accountable. Glad to read that's not true.
