Why reference this current case? Let it be a lesson to anyone who finds themselves in court, facing either side of the judicial system. Whether you are the accused or the state's witness, it is imperative that you present yourself as well as possible.
Especially as a defendant, a jury not only considers your testimony, but they take into account your demeanor, your perceived sincerity, the way you respond to the judge and litigators. It is paramount that you dress appropriately and speak clearly and affirmatively. Many factors go in to deciding one's punishment. If the Judge finds you to be sincere and worth giving a second chance, you may find that to be as a result of proper courtroom etiquette (and a competent attorney).
