Yesterday, I posted an entry about this statement by the judge at the Adnan Syed trial, in which she notes the accusation that Cristina Gutierrez (Adnan's defense counsel) wouldn't talk to people. An astute reader has now shown me where this accusation occurs in the trial record. It is on pages 51-52 of the transcript from the second day of trial:
This exchange seems important for two reasons: (1) FIVE witnesses are telling the State that Gutierrez and her team have subpoenaed them and yet won't talk to them; and (2) the judge is explaining to Urick what he should do when he is contacted by prospective defense witnesses.
