||Explicit13. Attorneys Closing Arguments resume in Santa Ana Superior Court where Rachel Buffett's Accessory to Murder Trial continues.||13. This week we are back in a Santa Ana courtroom for our front row trial coverage of Rachel Buffett’s accessory to murder trial. Matt Murphy has prosecuted his case for nearly a week and is ready for his closing arguments. David Medina, Rachel’s defense counsel feels so confident he has presented plenty of reasonable doubt in the trial, that he doesn’t put on a single witness. Court spectators wondered whether Rachel herself would take the stand in her defense. After all, not more than a month before the trial, Rachel was presented an offer that included pleading guilty to a misdemeanor with no jail time. She turned it down and expressed wanting her day in court. So why did she tell the judge she didn’t think it was necessary she take the stand? Perhaps it will all make sense as we listen in to both Matt Murphy and David Medina’s closing arguments to jurors. Our Sleuth guest, Daniel Wozniak’s defense counsel Scott Sanders, returns to analyze the final summations from both counsel.||11/6/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

A+++ Great choice! Amazing detail!
So grateful you all chose the Wozniak case. Sam and Julia deserve to have their case turned over and shook up to expose this serial butcher. In depth interviews, great non biased audio journalism. SUBSCRIBE & SHARE!!!
Story jumps around
I really liked the first episode, but the second is almost losing me. There is lots of talk about the case but not a lot of storytelling, so unless you already know and understand who they’re talking about, it’s easy to get lost. Otherwise it has potential to be very interesting.
Hard to follow
I can’t tell if this is fake or real. There is no enthusiasm in this podcast so it’s hard to enjoy
