The Law Offcies of Kavanaugh Thomas, LLC, PC, LTD, Chartered, AV Rated

Yes, for impeachables. "Now, Officer, you put this in your report?" Is it fair to say that this fact matters? With that being said, Van Dyke was his own worst enemy on the stand. He testified like he was the arresting officer being cross examined at a Prelim at Grand and Central by a PD or Bar Attorney. Snarky, arrogant and trying to trip up the lawyers. He corrected them a number of times...exactly the way coppers testify on a routine PCS/WI or controlled buy Except he wasn't the credible arresting officer. I really don't believe the defense had control over their client...dare I say poor client advocacy. May have tried a decent case, but didn't humble their guy and read him the riot act....ie, sit down and shut up....you are not a copper anymore, but mope defendant on trial. Be humble.
