Transcript for Daycare Murder Trial: Will Insanity Plea Work?
I'm here with Jimmy legal analyst Andrew so what to make of this insanity defense is almost as if OK make up the most bizarre actions they make up but tell them -- had -- -- -- story possible what doesn't what I don't see how this possibly works -- Even if Olivia Newton-John and Barry White. Are telling him to do it in his -- to make this a valid defense such that the jury would find him not guilty by reason of insanity. He would need to not understand. That it was wrong so Bolivia Newton-John is telling him to do something go kill. Any knows it's wrong even -- it's still Olivia Newton-John. That's not not to know the recent events and the fact that he set up an alibi actually -- this case absolutely and it is the fact that he rented a car before him the fact that he's wearing a hooded setter. -- did it seems that there was premeditation. To avoid detection. He's very bad for him because he shows. Some degree of understanding. That what he was doing was wrong. And that's what makes this -- tough defense. Let -- other bizarre slide -- here is this claim of an affair. With the victim's wife both the prosecution and the defense say it was happening but she didn't. Eighties it is bizarre because -- both prosecutors and defense saying look as if it was a gift. Yet there was an affair between them. And both of them sort of using it for different reasons and then -- the very first witness in the case testifying for the prosecution setting up. There was there was no affair and then the prosecutor's cross examining her about it doesn't really mattered that much in fact. I would argue the defense probably would have been better off if their position was well he was delusional. About the affair. And so no there wasn't actually an affair but he thought there was that could've fed and everything -- just made that strike that could if fed into the -- insanity defense that's not what they're saying. They're saying they're actually was an affair. And then. Olivia Newton-John Barry White come into Staten Island it's -- -- -- this is a weird when Dan Abrams thanks very much.
