    One accuser has a heart attack, critical condition.

    If the heart won't tick, you must acquit.

    If he's in the crypt, you must acquit...

    We need to use the Law & Order Jack McCoy methodology here. The heck with beating the charge, add to the charges.

    The incident of the kidnap/robbery sent the accuser on a stressful few days that led to the heart attack. If the accuser dies as a result of the heart attack triggered by the stress following the robbery attempt, you need to add a murder/manslaughter charge to the list.

    I like the way you think, Joe.

    Too bad Orbach's gone. He'd be perfect for some updated O.J. wisecracks.

    A reporter on the campaign trail could ask DA Branch what he thinks about the case. You know it'll be something folksy.

    The Law and Order remark and the whole OJ thing reminds me of the classic episode when a cop got killed by two guys robbing a liquor store. One of the crooks then shot the other one. McCoy - toeing an ethical line as always - eventually got the guy convicted of killing his partner after letting him off on a lesser charge for the cop killing. Orbach quipped that he wanted to go to law school to learn such shenanigans.

    According to the latest AP story, OJ ripped a cell phone out of the victim (Fromong)'s hand, while one of the other suspects brandished a gun.

    If Fromong kicks from the heart attack, OJ would at the very least be looking real good for manslaughter, depending if the prosecution could get some medical experts to say the heart attack was a direct result of the physical attack, we're back to Mur-Der.

    Incidentally, Nevada does have the death penalty. ;D

    This could be mah-velous. I don't know about you, but if I had an irate O.J. getting in my grill and ripping a cell phone out of my hand, I might have a heart attack too. I sure as hell would be checking his other hand.

    You know you can't outrun him. Particularly in an airport.

    It still needs to be released that O.J.'s first remark to police was "I thought what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas."
