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.

bluebahloo 2 points ago +2 / -0

The prosecution determined that they were actual pictures of his hairy dick, not of his hairy dick inspired hairdo as he later claimed. He was subsequently found guilty of jury jntimidation in addition to the other charges.

Yes, it almost worked too. Some jurors sent nudes back but got caught. They were replaced with alternates before deliberation.

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."

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.

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.

18
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.

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.

thisguy883 1 point ago +1 / -0

I have a headset on and its at the highest volume. Thought it was my headset at first, so I loaded a different video and that video's audio worked just fine.

Not this one. It was too low. Hard to hear what was being said and the audio was only coming out on the left headset speaker.

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.

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.

4
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.

5
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.

Even in states with a death penalty it's only used if the crime is judged "heinous."

Underrated comment.

18
Chinese_spy2 18 points ago +18 / -0

The jury required four and a half hours of deliberation to arrive at the guilty verdict.

  • Ten minutes to decide? And four hours (and twenty minutes) to laugh at Oneal's oddest attempt of a defense?
  • Or, dreadfully, was one juror (or more) a BLM absolutist, spoiling the unanimity?

The OJ Simpson trial and the Derek Chauvin trial have absolutely damned any confidence in juries.

Isolated_Patriot 3 points ago +3 / -0

There is a thing about making the verdict too fast. Sometimes reasonable people will want to go back over the case, even if everyone thinks he is guilty already.

But option two is just as likely.

Chinese_spy2 11 points ago +11 / -0

Crime was committed in 2018. The trial began a week ago. At most, three years separate these two events. So... not quite a speedy conviction.

  • Where was Oneal in the meantime?
  • In prison? That would be cruel if he were innocent.
  • At home? That would be dangerous for potential victims.
  • Oneal killed his own daughter with multiple strikes of an axe to her head, so just imagine what he would be willing to do to someone who is not family.
3
BigPanda71 3 points ago +3 / -0

Most delays are at the request of the defense. A handful of defense attorneys demanding speedy trials in a given jurisdiction could short circuit our entire justice system. But the flip side is they’d lose any rapport they have with the prosecutors office and would never get a favorable plea deal for a client again.

1
Chinese_spy2 1 point ago +1 / -0

If a defendant was truly guilty of the crime (and the evidence was heavily against reasonable doubt), would he not wish to delay the trial indefinitely?

  • If the prosecution relied on the testimony of witnesses, would a defendant not wish for much delay in hopes of memory loss or death of the witnesses?

(Heck, Oneal tried to cast doubt on his son's testimony due to his having forgotten minor details. A competent lawyer might have succeeded. Three years make for a significant gap in time, especially for a then-8-now-11 year old.)

  • The "justice" system seems absolutely deprived of consideration for the victims and for those who loved them.
1
BigPanda71 1 point ago +1 / -0

The general idea behind it is that things like forensic testing and drug identification (not really applicable in this case) take time. You can rush testing for one or two cases, but having to rush results for 50 cases is near impossible. Which means you’d have a bunch of cases dismissed because the prosecutors can’t meet their burden of proof.

BaronGSD 3 points ago +3 / -0

The stupid judge felt the need to actually compliment his skills on defending himself. That was entirely unnecessary and unprofessional. She said in another life he’d make a great lawyer. He was grinning ear to ear and clearly ate up the praise from her. This was immediately after the jury unanimously convicted him in less than an hour. Then she dismisses the jury for a day off and sentencing phase starts Wednesday. Oh, and by the way be sure to grab some pizza on your way out. The jury finished deliberating literally before the pizza arrived! I couldn’t believe all of that from a judge in a first degree murder conviction trial in the last 20 minutes alone. Quite the upbeat, positive party atmosphere after having to hear that scumbag unintelligibly yell his defense closing argument to the jury. It was all pretty disgraceful in my opinion. Why do I have a feeling the judge is going to go light on this guy?

4
Lazy8 4 points ago +4 / -0

Could be to placate him into believing he did a good job and lessen a chance at appeal. Hard to believe anyone really thinks he did well.

1
BaronGSD 1 point ago +1 / -0

Any moment placating hun was a moment wasted. If he wishes to defend himself that’s his right. She should have immediately gaveled him down and told him to cease the yelling. That’s all I’m saying. If he’s stupid enough to insist on representing himself, let him do it.

2
Chinese_spy2 2 points ago +2 / -0

Hillsborough Circuit Judge Michelle Sisco to Ronnie Oneal:

“I respect the fact that you chose to represent yourself. I have to tell you, I think in another lifetime, you would have been an outstanding lawyer. ... However, as we move into penalty phase, I really am going to strongly encourage you to allow counsel to now step in and represent you.”

  • I must admit, I did not believe you, BaronGSD. The judge was seemingly eye-rolling and side-eying throughout Oneal's arguments and statements. But you are correct: The judge did compliment him on his performance, in the end.

BaronGSD 1 point ago +1 / -0

I don’t see what good it did - she needed to score points with him? I didn’t get it.

2
Chinese_spy2 2 points ago +2 / -0

Other users have argued that her compliment was made to ruin Oneal's chances for an appeal (or new trial) based on his incompetency of a defense. With the judge stating that Oneal did a good job, she has diminished his potential rebuttal that he was not properly represented:

  • "I was a lousy lawyer. I did a horrible job. Please give me a new trial with a real lawyer speaking for me."
  • "Sorry, Judge Sisco said that you did a good job. Appeal/new trial denied."
1
BaronGSD 1 point ago +1 / -0

very well said. Now I guess we get to watch him get 20 years? Actually, he will probably get life. With a mouth like that he won’t last a week in prison. Especially since he’s a child murderer. Sean Atwood’s videos go into what happens to prisoners based on their crime. He’s not going to have any friends in there.
