Watched him defend himself earlier. I love that we have the option to defend ourselves but judges and jury hate it....and you could see it.

wasn't his defense some dumb shit like:

"my son didn't see me kill his mother"

like nigga what... you just admitted to killing your wife you absolute retard

At one point, with closed captioning on, (I was on a call) he said “these are the two phone pings” and the CC showed “these are the two phone penises.” I died...

That's not what he said. He sent dick pics to some of the jury members. There's a reason they don't appreciate self-representation.

Were they pictures of his hair? Lookin' like he's got a head full of dicks.

He also said he admitted to killing the girlfriend because she killed the child, and that the 911 call was fraudulent and he was being set up.

Wonder when he'll get his statue.

He defended himself? Oh this I need to see. I'm curious if it was an issue of "no attorney would defend this man," or a situation of "nah... I don't need an attorney, I got this."

He chose to defend himself and it was a shit show unlike any other

You're always entitled to a public defender if you want one. They don't get to refuse, unless you threaten them or something.

bluebahloo 6 points ago +6 / -0

That's not true. It depends on your region but usually you're required to prove that you cannot afford to hire a lawyer before you're appointed a public defender.

in Nevada, any veteran is automatically entitled to a public defender, regardless of wealth.

Oneal was not entirely alone; he had three public defenders assisting him.

  • Like Ted Bundy, Oneal thought he could "charm" his way out of a conviction.
  • Instead, again like with Ted Bundy, Oneal ought to have relied heavily on counsel and shut up.
  • However, like Ted Bundy again, Oneal is scum and his state-sanctioned death will be richly deserved.

Why the fuck did we have to pay for 3 defenders to support this twats publicity stunt.

Perhelion 18 points ago +18 / -0

Because it’s a double murder case and the first thing he would do after conviction anyway is appeal and claim he didn’t know some shit or had “ineffective assistance of counsel” or something that would waste additional time and resources.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Florida more they go and do something right again!

MAGAnic316 17 points ago +17 / -0

Yeah this is another case of expectation vs reality. He probably binged season 2 of Suits and thought, “I’ll be ‘aight up there...”

Fuckin low IQ oxygen waster. The flames of hell are waiting for him. God rest the souls of that poor woman and her child

He's not insane, he's just incredibly fucking stupid, stop confusing the two.

"in a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill."

He took an axe to his family. Seems to fit.

"Let's listen in now as the defendent begins his opening statement."

"The evidence... is going to SHOW!!! That we ARE UNDER!!!"

"Guilty. Interesting hairdo tho."

My roomate loves these youtubes of guys trying to argue their way out of cases and traffic stops claiming "Sovereignty" or some shit.

The patience some judges and cops have is incredible.

They slowly repeatedly explain to them that they will pull them from the vehicle if they don't show ID, have them held in contempt of court, giving them countless chances to drop the act.

The audio is horrible in this clip.

Could barely hear anything that was going on.

vegaspatriot1776 1 point ago +1 / -0

try turning up the volume. it worked for me.

JKillen 2 points ago +2 / -0

He yelled at the Jury too in opening statments.

When I found out he was defending himself I said, "He's gonna get the needle. Fucking idiot."

In To Catch a Predator there was a younger dude who chose to defend himself (meeting a minor for sex) and the judge flat out told him "I do NOT recommend you defend yourself in a case like this",

He got absolutely murdered in court and got the full sentence.

Magabirdlady2 [S] 29 points ago +30 / -1

Yeah first day he seemed scary in the court room like crazy. Judge looked nervous.

G_regulator 22 points ago +24 / -2

I've defended myself before and got the case dismissed.

Of course my defence was easy, they didn't read the Miranda rights to me before I was arrested and jailed for 24hrs.

The judge just laughed at the prosecutor and the arresting officer was there as a witness. He was seething.

Naturally I had cops sitting ony house every friday and Saturday night for a month trying to catch me out. Fucking losers man, wasn't even guilty of the charges and they lied in their statement.

Most cops I've felt with have been great having said that.

BigPanda71 4 points ago +6 / -2

And then everyone clapped, right?

Miranda has to do with questioning, not arrest. Unless you’re the perp in a Law and Order episode, you’re probably not getting Mirandized until you get to the interview room (or equivalent interview space in the field).

I’m guessing this was a DUI case (cops sitting on your house to presumably catch you drunk driving), but you’re clearly leaving out context. But it makes for a cool story, I guess.

G_regulator 5 points ago +5 / -0

No, not DUI. Supply and traffic a schedule 1 drug. I wasn't read my rights before I was interviewed. It was over 10 years ago now, I've completely changed my life since then.

I had a friend who's an solicitor help me out with the case. She reviewed the interview tape and identified they didn't read me my rights. She said it was some of the shittiest police work she's ever seen.

They didn't actually have a case against me because they didn't have any material evidence and the only witness was my girlfriend and she refused to make a statement.

It was a lock. There was zero chance I could fuck it up, but that doesn't make a very interesting story now does it.
