The Judge had some harsh words for the Prosecution yesterday, after their idiotic blunder led to the ruling of a mistrial:
“Government counsel can’t do what it thinks it can get away with. Any first year law student should know that.”
This after the Prosecutors entered testimony from Andy Pettitte’s wife. Prior to the case ,the Judge had given strict orders not to mention Laura Pettite since her testimony was second-hand information.
So, Clemens is a free man-for now. He has another hearing scheduled for September 2. Clemens’ counsel will try to bury the case under the Double Jeopardy rule, but legal analysts debate whether or not this will work.
For now, count this as a W for the Rocket.
