Representative Bill Janklow of South Dakota : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

How do you think this trial will turn out? For the life of me I cannot guess if he will be convicted or not.

His lawyers have adopted a "risky" defense argument (adverse reaction to a diabetic medication) but we will see. I just hope you don't get inundated with sympathetic and empathetic email responses like I did (and still am receiving) when I asked a similar question about Scott Peterson. In my nearly 10 years of being involved in Internet discussions I don't think I have ever encountered an Internet poster quite like Mary Beth. QED

Well Mary looks like Rep. Janklow didn't have to wait long for the verdict. The swift guilty verdict handed down late yesterday means his political career is finished. This is an important lesson for all about the dangers of a persistent pattern of reckless driving. QED
