Mark Shurtleff (Paraphrased) says: There won't be a new trial of Warren Jeffs

How do you disapprove of a unanimous Utah Supreme Court Decision, as it's Attorney General?
You can SAY you're disappointed, but you just got told you stink as a legal mind and your reasoning was bankrupt. You've been stomped, you're WRONG:
The Polygamy File - "The decision is going to make it very difficult to retry, based on the same theory of accomplice liability, based on a position of special trust. So, we will leave our options open as far as whether we retry the case or whether we go over to the Legislature and seek some type of legislative change for future cases."
Interpretation? I'm not admitting in front of all you folks that the case is dead, but it's dead.

Besides, if we try it again, Elissa wall will go down for perjury.

I'm guessing Mark is secretly happy - he now doesn't have to deal with fabricated evidence or Ellisa's involvement with the raid.

He can just blame it on the Courts.

Besides, he isn't freeing Jeffs - just sending him to Texas.

Walthers gets to free Jeffs!

Some please, please find a (legal) way to take a picture of her face when she has to free him!

Any way Mark talked about Federal charges. I could be wrong but I think the Feds have just one more year to bring charges, right?

Walther has the same expression, every time I see her. She's sorta the Larry Csonka of the Judiciary.
