Yesterday, Judge Perry strongly advised prosecutors to simplify their charges against the three defendants. Perry warned that the case may be too complex for the jurors to understand and asked the prosecutors if they were “trying to impress the jury with so many charges.” The judge is giving the prosecution more time to “clean up” their allegations and has delayed closing arguments until Monday.
UPDATE: Late yesterday, Judge Perry announced after consulting with a fellow judge, he has decided to have faith in the jury system. Despite dismissing two felony charges against Stern for obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit due to lack of evidence of the defendant’s intent, Stern will still face 9 felony charges. All of the 11 felony counts will go to the jury, but the defendants will face different charges.
