I feel the same way in court hearings for anyone else as well. I absolutely disagree that someone should be able to be convicted on witness testimony alone. I don't care if a dozen people say they saw some one rob a bank - unless there is corroborating evidence to agree to the testimony, I don't think they should be able to convict anyone.
Welp, that's a conveniently unattainable bar to reach in a huge percentage of crimes. I'm confident the evidence is there, but this defendant is in a unique position of being able to dictate exactly what evidence he wants to provide. It's a sham trial, but not for the reasons you guys are espousing. I'd LOVE to have a trial in which I decide what evidence can be submitted and who can testify AND have the jury stacked with mostly members of my own friends.
