  • Yes.
  • That's it.
  • Yes, and from what I gather  Mr. Jack Hogan needs a few surprises. The prosecution started with a weak case and it is only growing weaker.
  • So the question is, obviously, what if anything, could or should be done about this witness at the point of the trial?
  • Are you okay.
  • I thought you weren't following the trial?
  • I have friends, Theo. Sources.
  • Under our rules of procedure, a judge in a criminal trial has the authority to declare a mistrial if the judge thinks that something improper has occurred.
  • Not specifically, but it's a pretty broad rule that allows the judge to do whatever he thinks is right. The argument could be made that the absence of an important witness is grounds for mistrial.
  • Does it cover a surprise witness?
  • It's up to the judge, but in this case I suspect Gantry wouldn't wait too long. A couple of months. Enough tome for this secret witness to get his act together.
  • What happens after a mistrial?
  • When?
  • The charges are not dismissed. Another trial is rescheduled.
