13. This week we are back in a Santa Ana courtroom for our front row trial coverage of Rachel Buffett’s accessory to murder trial. Matt Murphy has prosecuted his case for nearly a week and is ready for his closing arguments. David Medina, Rachel’s defense counsel feels so confident he has presented plenty of reasonable doubt in the trial, that he doesn’t put on a single witness. Court spectators wondered whether Rachel herself would take the stand in her defense. After all, not more than a month before the trial, Rachel was presented an offer that included pleading guilty to a misdemeanor with no jail time. She turned it down and expressed wanting her day in court. So why did she tell the judge she didn’t think it was necessary she take the stand? Perhaps it will all make sense as we listen in to both Matt Murphy and David Medina’s closing arguments to jurors. Our Sleuth guest, Daniel Wozniak’s defense counsel Scott Sanders, returns to analyze the final summations from both counsel.
