Although Round One is not over, so far it sounds like the prosecution may be leading this round of the Bill Campbell trial. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports here that a witness who lived in Campbell's home testified to seeing the passing of money to Campbell. This type of direct evidence could be difficult testimony for the defense to contend with at closing argument. But cross-examination may show otherwise. Judges typically instruct jurors at the end of the trial that they judge the credibility of the witnesses who testify and that their bias in testifying can be used in that determination. Stay tuned.
