The Logic Behind Attorney Kelly G Rogers and Mitchell R Nolte's Delay Strategy
Today I received an anonymous email. It laid out a theory as to what's behind the strategy of delay, delay, delay executed by Der Slick Meister and his lawyer Mitchell Nolte.
I have no idea who sent it but it makes perfect sense and I had to share it with all you legal eagles. It goes something like this:
This is an election year. The Collin County primaries are scheduled for March 4th, 2014 with the main election this fall. The District Attorney and a bunch of judges are up for reelection including;
One of those Judges NOT up for reelection is Judge Mark Rusch.
However, when an election takes place, opportunities present themselves for individuals to move up and better their careers. They fill positions vacated during the normal election cycle.
So lets assume for a minute that Kelly G. Rogers and Mitchell Nolte have read the tea leaves and know Judge Rusch is going to blast Rogers with both barrels.
They know Kelly G Rogers will be the quintessential example of what happens to vultures who pray on friends, neighbors, fellow parishioners and the business community at large.
While it's a jury who'll decide the sentence, it's the Judge who holds discretion over whether each count will be served "Consecutively" or "Concurrently" and many other responsibilities.
But let's assume he's in line to get a sentence similar to Karen Bowie who got 80 years in confinement in the TDCJ. They know he's going to jail, it's just a question of how long.
So by delaying, maybe they can catch a break and Judge Rusch gets elevated to a new position. The theory goes that a new kinder, gentler judge is assigned or elected and would go soft on Rogers because they don't have the same view on justice as Judge Rusch. As a result, Rogers gets only 5 years rather than 80.
So while I couldn't believe what I was reading, it did make a lot of sense to me. So what are your thoughts? Is it possible? Someone please tell me that it's not possible! Yuck.
