Doozy Of The Day At The Sheriff Mike Carona Corruption Trial

"[Public access to audio of Sheriff Mike Carona's incriminating statement's that led to his arrest on bribery charges] could taint the jury."

--Brian A. Sun, one of the numerous Jones Day law firm bodies who represent indicted ex-Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona (allegedly) for free, arguing today that the FBI audio surveillance evidence admitted in the trial should be withheld from the public. One big problem. How could public knowledge of evidence the jury has already heard taint the panel's deliberations? Hmmm. Nonetheless, Judge Andrew Guilford--who I think is a generally a terrific judge--overruled Assistant United States Attorney Brett Sagel and ridiculously granted the defense motion.
