Life Sentences

The jury in our death penalty case decided to give one defendant (the father of the second defendant) a life sentence on Monday, and came out this afternoon for a life sentence for the son.
I watched a good part of the victim impact testimony from the victims' parents as well as mitigation testimony from the family of the second defendant.
Again, so no one thinks I'm giving them any information that's not 100% public, I won't comment, except to say that the whole thing was emotionally draining.

"Emotionally draining," eh? I can read between the lines---you had to sit there for three hours and all you could think about was how bad you had to go to the bathroom.
