Okay, after the introductions, we go in front of the judge (who is this fabulously wonderful, warm, and very patient lady). After stating our names for the record, the judge asks me "What is the state's position at this time?" Well I reply like an ass and say "Well your honor, we have extended an offer to the defense at this time, but he wants to like, make a motion to suppress evidence and I really don't know why, because...whatever." Yes, I trailed off just like that and said those words just like that. I mean, I sounded like a moron. The defense's whole issue was this e-mail that was entered into evidence, except that we were supposed to give him this evidence 2 weeks ago (as opposed to 2 days ago when he actually got it. So, he was moving to suppress the evidence for being late). I should've just let the judge finish talking and let it go. But no, I further dig my ass into a whole by saying "well your honor, to be fair, it's not like his client couldn't have printed out the e-mail himself. It would've made it much easier." Okay, the split second I said that, I realized the State had the Burden of Proof --which I DO KNOW, so I quickly added "I mean I know we have the burden of proof, but it just seems the attorney could've gotten the evidence if he really wanted it so bad." Not quite the best follow up argument. I'm just replaying the whole scene in my head and I can't believe I sounded like a freaking dunce!! Especially after that attorney already questioned me about being able to stand in court!! Argh...Perhaps I let my emotions get the best of me. In any case, I felt so incredibly low and I was just happy that it was over. Now, the case is set for trial on Dec. 5th and I'm so going to BRING IT in court!! Bloody embarassing. And now, since that happened, I'm so scared for Monday (yes, tomorrow) when I have my first trial. I'm so scared I'm make a fool of myself again! Argh. Do wish me luck!
