In this episode of "Hidden Killers," host Tony Brueski welcomes defense attorney Bob Motta, who shares insights on Karen Read’s upcoming trial. They discuss the intriguing aspects of Read’s case, notably her questionable Google search about dying in the snow, which raises suspicions about her awareness and potential involvement in the incident. Motta elaborates on the challenges of proving intent or accident in such ambiguous circumstances, especially given the significant investigative lapses by law enforcement, like ignoring potential evidence from doorbell cameras. The conversation also touches on the strategy of introducing an alternative suspect, the potential for overcharging the case, and the impact of public and legal perceptions on the outcome. Motta reflects on the broader implications of trial tactics, such as the timing of introducing lesser included charges, and how these might influence jury decisions and the final verdict.
