Tucson Shooting Case Update: Laughner back in Tucson

David Michael Cantor, an Phoenix Criminal Attorney, talks about the recent change of venue for the Tucson Shooting case involving U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.. Previously the case had been moved to Phoenix after federal judges had recused themselves from the case because fellow Judge John M. Roll was one of the murder victims. Both the prosecutors and the defense agreed to this move so that witnesses would not have to travel as much.

David points out that while he respects Judy Clarke, the defense attorney assigned to the case by the feds, he thinks that this move is a bad one for the defense. Moving the case back to Tucson reopens the mob mentality issue where a judge might feel less likely to accept defense arguments in favor of pleasing the courtroom crowd.

Mrs. Clarke has held onto the option to have the case moved again at a later date, which may be the best thing to do if she wants a get a fair trial for her client. Of course this is what David thinks, let us know what you think.
