Please, just for comedy’s sake

Lawyer for Larry Langford asks federal judge to leave Langford free as he appeals conviction | al.com.

Though I have to admit, just the appeals process looks to be a hoot and a half.

For example, Rasmussen said evidence of Langford’s generosity should have been admitted at trial. Coogler limited the testimony of defense witness Ocie Oden, who wanted to testify about gifts — clothing and cash for his church — that he received from Langford. He did tell the jury about one suit Langford gave him because he remembered the name brand of the suit, Oxxford.

Coogler did not allow testimony about other suits because Oden could not remember what store they came from. Langford’s generosity had nothing to do with the charges lodged against him, prosecutors contend.
