Secondly, the judge would also likely grant him a new appeal as it his constitutional right in the state of Pennsylvania therefore giving authority to his defense team to do so within thirty after a verdict has been reached (Press, A. (2012, October 18).
The defense and prosecuting attorneys are more likely to alter to the testimonies of their witnesses to as to gain favor with the judge and jury. This is because for both parties to stand a chance of winning the trial, they have to ensure that they win in their closing arguments. Secondly, both parties will have to alter their opening statements to create weight in the theories they present to the court in the course of the verdict. I believe that in so doing, the verdict of the judge and jury may be altered as opening statements always give weight to the theories presented by both parties at the end of every cross examination, verdict and sentencing (Ohio & Ohio, 1885).
