Little bit more about the sentencing hearing which live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by legal analysts and KPI x five correspondent Melissa Hain. Melissa how unusual is it for a judge to toss a plea deal, oh well have you said stunning this was absolutely a shock to everyone in the courtroom maybe. A released us maybe a problem for others that it just almost never ever happened I. Remember this is a plea deal Bill that would negotiated by a judge a judge, Jacobson who was the initial hearing judge who worked really really. Hard, to get the defense cow defendant's council and the district attorney to this place and then to explode this very, very carefully crafted a plea deal is just really extraordinary Melissa you're an attorney or lawyer and you and I are both in this. Courtroom at different points during this case but how weird is it. Too or unusual is it to have one judge agreed to a plea a plea deal and then another toss. It out at the sensing hearing that that's the other part that's really unusual amino remake the, courthouse Christmas party awkward with one who worked so so very hard. And, I guess after two days of hearing and then Mr. letter to? Sort, of, not passing muster Armin? Kremer must've been really really motivated to do this because. He really put a, lot on the line and risks angering a co worker and the. District attorney's office which as a Krimmer Final a criminal court judge, you see all? The time really upsetting a lot of folks that he's going to be dealing with an ongoing basis so he must have, felt very very compelled to do what he did today from. What I understand Derek almanac one of the defendants who was going to spend nine years in prison he wrote a letter a, really long letter to probation and then he did make testimony in the courtroom today the judge found that he was lacking remorse that was, for his written comments Monitor it was based on the letter where he basically described himself as. A victim in that letter and it's not unlike, what his attorney has been saying I mean Doug interviewed Mr. Sarah he's consistently said that, the real perpetrator here is Oakland and their. Failure to. Inspect properly and that. His, client, is, one of, the real victims in this. Case so it's maybe not surprising that the letter reflected what his what his attorney hasn't. Arguing the whole time but I'll tell you. The. Person here who should be really upset is my Harris. Because. This was a a sort of joint deal and so if l. it doesn't get the deal then harasses Pedo goes. Out the window to and there's, no indication that he was anything but remorseful and appropriately Sutton with this deal.
