Applegate was sane.

This one's over... Jury verdict: convicted murderer was sane at time of crime
It's one for Gallegos - though I was wondering how it was going to turn out when he got the expert witness, the psychiatrist who examined Applegate. to testify in the defense's favor: Gallegos asked Soper if planning an alibi for the shootings ahead of time suggested Applegate could distinguish right from wrong.
Soper answered, “Yes.”
When Soper was asked if it was his opinion that, at the time of the shootings, Applegate was “not legally sane,” Soper also answered yes.


Maybe it's a typo.

Update:
Doctor gives view on sane verdict in Applegate case 8/20/07

  1. At least Gallegos didn't screw this portion of the trial to bad.

  4. So quotation marks are some guarantee of infallibility?

    I think not.

  5. At least the paper is taking responsibility for its "mistakes." Some papers don't. They just let typos/mistakes/whatever slide.
