  •  That's absurd, isn't it? (0+ / 0-)

    According to the quote, the judge said, were it not for DeChristopher's speech "after his March conviction," he "might not have faced prosecution" in the first place.

    I'm trying to imagine how keeping his mouth shut after a conviction would have made the prosecution disappear.  Magic?
