UPDATE: Justin Cox "sleepwalking" to acquittal

The bLAWgger stands corrected. Apparently there WAS expert testimony in the case, and the jurors had opinioins from both the State and the defense. As I always say, “good prosecution, good defense, and let the jury sort it out.”

But don’t try this at home, folks. You can’t just commit a crime (or any act) and expext to have a jury (or your parents, or spouse) excuse you because you say you were sleepwalking. As exemplified here, you have to be able to put your money (in the form of expert witness fees) where your mouth is, and be able to back it up.
