Not a monster?? I would HATE to see exactly WHAT she thinks a monster is. Even the defense attorney tried to put it off saying that the witnesses weren't "credible". And THIS trash IS credible? REALLY?? What rock did THAT lawyer crawl out from under?

The same rock as that female prosecutor who needs a hair cut. I found her to be extremely offensive when I heard her talking in the hall. A rock could have convicted Mr. Broward who deserved every day he got by the jury

I listened to the guard from the prison Red Onion who is an expert on gangs and she was so much more impressive than any of the prosecutors who tried to take charge of the courtroom. Thank goodness for the judge(sorry I forgot his name) for taking charge and keeping all the players under control. This trial was not a game show to impress but a serious event to determine the guilt of a real dangerous young man. At least the jury did their job. They deserve all the credit because all the other actors were clowds. Great job juge and jury. You have the respect of the community.

Why does the prosecutor need a hair cut? Sounds like a sexist statement to me.

I think you meant to say judge and jury. Just a minor point.

Was not there but let me tell you this, the prosecutor only cares about winning. She is heartless and does not care what she does to an innocent person or their family!

Given what I've seen in our courts, I doubt he was guilty.

She is ruthless and will stop at nothing to win. I have a relative who worked in that office and no one liked her at all. She needs to be removed but she does all of Gwynn's dirty work. Both of them are insults to their positions. Fire them.

If you think NN courts are dirty, you should see Gloucesters, 10x worse.

So you weren't there, but the guy is innocent and the jury got it wrong? I seriously doubt it.
I'm glad the cops and prosecution did their job here. This guy sounds like a violent thug, and his momma's words scream enabler.
It's about time somebody did something about these gangs. You won't see me wringing my hands, crying for the poor "innocent" thugs and the families that spawn them.

The guy is guilty as hell and should spend the rest of his life in jail. I believe the previous statement was referring to the prosecutor who is ruthless as they come according to people in her office. I wish I had seen the trial. Everyone is saying a rock could have convicted the guy. This was a winner, she could not lose the case that is why she took it.

Which doesn't mean a thing. i've seen more than one innocent person convicted of something they didn't do. Especially in the local courts. The local prosecutors have no sense of right and wrong, all they care about is their conviction rate.

You ever been on a jury? I have and let me tell you its hard to get 12 people to agree on anything, especially when they don't give up their prejudices like you. You obviously jave some preconceived notion that the local courts are corrupt, so you are biased.

This forum shows how hard it is to get people to agree. I'll take it from the people who were there, thank you very much.

It is no question that this animal is guilty and should spend the rest of his life in prison. The problem the officers have is dealing with the prosecutor. She has no idea what she is doing and is the most disliked prosecutor in that office. She thinks she runs that office. Bring Matt Danielson back or promote Charlie Powell.

I know personally of 3 innocent people that were found guilty, all because witnesses LIED. So it doesn't matter what a jury finds, if there's false information, and a piss poor prosecutor who doesn't give a crap about the truth........

The courts in newport news are not dirty. It is the commonwealth attorney's office that has a problem. My son had a drug charge and his attorney( a public defender) had worked out a deal with the prosecutor who handled the case that would have helped my son. We were thrilled and real pleased with the attorney's efforts. On the morning of the trial the prosecutor came to court and said her supervisor would not agree to the deal and wanted to change it. My family was floored and my son was destroyed. Within a month of my son being released from jail he was using drugs again. I thougt the lawyers doing the case had the authority to make decisions about it, not some supervisor back in the office who never had seen my son. Our attorney was upset but said that is the way that office operates. That office is corrupt.
