Being charged with Murder or worse Capital Murder is a very bad position to find ones self in. You would not be helping yourself or your attorney in your defense if you decide to start talking to the media.
Watching the news last night I saw a news story
regarding a man who allegedly shot and murdered his wife who was 7 months pregnant. According to the story the couple had 3 young children.
In response to a question from the media while in custody, the man said something to the effect that the victim had it coming for a while. I am paraphrasing and don't remember the exact quote, but what a terrible thing to say.
If the case is at appears to be, at least as it was reported, there were witnesses and the state will have a strong case. The man is presumed innocent, but the case looks like it will be more about punishment than guilt/innocence.
I'm certain that a statement like that will be used by the state as the defense attempts to offer mitigation evidence if the case reaches the punishment stage. The lesson is simple: keep your mouth shut.
