In Milton Trial Closing Mukasey Notes Kim Brady Not in Handcuffs As Team Trevor Beams

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

LITERARY SDNY, Oct 14 – When after nine days the Trevor Milton trial resumed, it went right into closing arguments. AUSA Jordan Estes called Trevor Milton a stone con man, Googling Can you drink water from a hydrogen fuel cell before he tweeted about a water fountain in the truck's cab.   Kurt Wheelock was live tweeting it, back on the case.

In the front row of the courtroom gallery, Team Trevor grimaced at Estes' closing, but perked up when Milton's recovered lawyer Mukasey took to the podium. He had on large white reading glasses, taking them on and off to read exhibits.

 He mocked the idea of a prosecution by Tweets. He called Mark Russell and Kim Brady "Boy Scouts" and said of course they would have asked if they say something wrong. (Later he said, you don't see THEM in handcuffs. And you didn't). 

 The rebuttal was by AUSA Matthew Podolosky; he used an analogy of a schoolboy lying that he'd gotten an A. That he aspired to the grade, or had a plan, didn't make it any less of a lie.

Team Trevor looked on angrily, it seemed.   Judge Ramos told the jurors to return on Friday for the legal instructions then to begin deliberating.

Some predicted a fast verdict - "it just depends on what you believe" - and others predicted it spreading into the next week. More on Patreon here
