Federal prosecutors want to limit defense attorney Sammy Bregman's bag of tricks on this next go-round in former Treasurer Vigil's case which starts up September 5th.
In the last trial, which ended in a hung jury, Bregman appealed to jurors' sympathies by talking about Vigil's humble beginnings, his large family and, allegedly, how the FBI told him he'd never see his Grandson again.
Bregman says the requests are a "sign of desperation." Like relying on sympathetic jurors isn't.
Then the Journal quotes him as saying, "Unfortunately ... it's becoming more and more apparent this prosecution is about politics."
I'm thinking this is more like prowrestling than boxing.
