If you have one victim testifying at trial, it is he said, she said. But if you have multiple victims testifying it is he said, THEY said, and the jury is more likely to believe the 'they' than the 'he', making it easier to get a conviction.

Not a very creative trick on the part of his defense attorney, but a potentially effective one.
Let's hope that the judge doesn't buy into it.

Although I believe Clark is guilty and also that he should be hanged, I must say that it is most often a sleazy trick of proscuters to load up a trial with a ton of witnesses--a great way to convict innocent people too.

If 1980 Waynesboro had an atmosphere of arresting and convicting criminals, this guy and many more would have been locked up long ago.
