Defense: 'No Substance, No Proof' for Prosecution Case

Defense Attorney Stephen Hurley didn't mince words when he took to the podium to sum up his case.

"There is a place in the law for common sense," he said emphatically.

When the government charges someone with a crime, it has the burden of proof. He said that in this case, "they have offered no substance, no proof."

All they have provided, is "parts of a case while avoiding the big picture." Their case amounts to witness testimony of what her suspected motives were.

"We can't convict anyone on suspicion and certainly not the suspicion of other people," he said. "There is no proof whatsoever Georgia was told anything by her superiors."
