An appeal is OK, it's still murder, mom
Some thought the mother's statement, "It's not over," as he was led out of court and to a lifetime in prison, means that there's a chance of the case being appealed.
Well, it will be appealed. It's automatic and because the teenager has a life to look ahead to, he'll be given an appellate lawyer.
Of course, it doesn't mean he'll win. Geoffrey Fieger complained about the judge's ruling, but he didn't put on a case. He hoped for an argument to win the case and considering the evidence prosecutors had (stolen cell phone used by defendant, lost gun, presumably taken by defendant), well, Fieger didn't have much a chance.
So there'll be an appeal, and he'll get another day in court. But I'm guessing he's not finding much sympathy.
Of course, I can't believe Nancy Seaman is getting a new trial, so who knows?
