Transcript for Oscar Pistorius: Defense Presents New Evidence
Let's get more from "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. I was struck by a tweet from the bbc in the courtroom. After the case presented its case, the pistorius family looked relieved. And they quoted a junior prosecution official saying, we're in trouble. I'm surprised by that, as well. Welcome back, robin. I was really surprised. Why? Because the prosecution has presented a pretty strong case what happened there. But this has been an effective cross-examination. No question about it, of the police detective. Undermining some of the evidence. In particular, for example, an ear witness. Really important point. Were they fighting before this The prosecution says, yes. Well, on cross-examination, the police detective concedes that this ear witness was 600 meters away. Could not necessarily have heard exactly what she was saying or he was saying. On the other hand, you have this police official saying that pistorius must have put on those prosthetic legs because of the angle of the shooting. Ballistics is complicated. All we're hearing so far in this bail hearing -- that's all we're talking about right here. This is a bail hearing. This isn't the trial. This is to determine whether he gets released on bail. This officer saying, it seemed to him they were coming from the top of the door, versus the bottom of the door. This is a science here. There's going to be enormous amounts of testimony that will come in about ballistics that will be crucial. I don't think we've heard enough. And chances he gets bail, very low. The chances -- I don't know.Think it's unlikely he'll be released. But I think he has a shot.
