He wants a new judge because she has personal and political relationships with prosecutors. If this concept held water, the judge could not participate in any trials. This is a non starter.

Some of Wafer's other defense moves are much more credible. If the defense can cast suspicion that the woman thought she was breaking into a drug house, jurors might, I say might, buy the self defense argument up to about 8%. It still crashes since he opened the door and shot and unarmed person.

How could the woman drive there if she was unarmed?

If some spook shows up on my porch in the night - I would shoot them as well.

Only 2% of all felonies even go to trial so this case will be a rarity if it does. Prosecutors thrive on confessions and plea deals. They can't afford to have trials for everybody and too many people would walk away if they did.

This will be for the jury to determine the facts of the evidence.
Reports suggest Waverly was safe in his home. Then he opened the door. Then he fired 6'-15' away at an unarmed woman. Maybe the jury will award a gold star.
