State recalls Dr. Tobin, pulmonologist, to rebut yesterday’s testimony by defense expert Dr. Fowler
The defense has announced that Derek Chauvin will not testify on his own behalf, instead asserting his 5A privilege. He has also asked Judge Cahill to give the relevant jury instruction that he is not obligated to testify, and that guilt cannot be inferred from his declining to testify.
Here’s video of that discussion in court this morning:
Finally, the defense is calling no more witnesses, and will rest shortly.
The state, however, is calling Dr. Tobin to rebut some of Dr. Fowler’s testimony later.
Before I go, in view of the ongoing riots raging presently in Minneapolis, and likely to explode across the nation when this case arrives at a verdict (or mistrial), I’ve also taken the liberty of putting together a special opportunity to access our best-selling course, “Lawful Defense Against Rioters, Looters, and Arsonists,” available in both online streamed and DVD formats. You can learn more about that course, by clicking here.
Until next time, stay safe!
