Patrick McDonough – Nancy Grace Appearance – Jan. 27, 2014   Leave a comment

January 27, 2014 – In this episode, Patrick McDonough weighs in on video evidence in a case involving a 23-year-old girl killed over an alleged photo bomb incident and how the suspect’s defense might approach the case.  McDonough hammers home that the video will become Defense exhibit 1 since it appears from the video that the person they arrested was actually hit by the alleged victim and fell to the side when the real perpetrator kicked the victim while on the ground.

Next, McDonough responds to Grace’s claim a 14-year-old boy shot her sister over dirty laundry by pointing out that scenario is speculation and the more likely case was the young boy was showing off with the gun when it accidentally went off shooting his sister by accident and then running because he was a scared kid.

Patrick McDonough – Nancy Grace Appearance – Dec. 9, 2013   Leave a comment

December 9, 2013Patrick McDonough spars with Nancy Grace pointing out there are mere allegation with multiple explanations as to whether or not a Kentucky mother tried to sell her newborn child. McDonough explains this could all be about a disgruntled cousin who was watching the child. Grace claims there is an admission when McDonough counters there has not been a statement produced merely supplemental report.

Next, Grace introduces “the killer bride” trial where a newlywed bride is accused of pushing her husband off of a cliff on their wedding day. McDonough explains how this could have easily have been a case where the new husband fell and the young bride merely did not react quickly enough reporting this to authorities for fear they would rush to judgment and misinterpret what happened.

Legal Analysis of the Linboom Case and Verdict Watch in the Michael Dunn trial

Trinity Hundredmark recently appeared as a legal analyst on Nancy Grace on HLN.

A criminal defense and family law attorney and Partner at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C., Trinity discussed the case of little Alexa Linboom, a 5-year old Tennessee girl who was forced to guzzle the grape soda and water after she took “one or two grape drinks” that belonged to her stepmother.  She was allegedly force-fed so much liquid that it caused the sodium level in her body to go down and caused her brain to swell.  She died as a result.

Trinity also discussed a case involving Sick Kids Hospital of Toronto, who allegedly overdosed a teenage boy with 7 drugs in 7 hours.  These drugs were nearly life threatening and were given without any prior testing or blood work completed by the hospital and despite objections by the boys’ parents.

Catch her tonight on HLN from 3-6 as she sits on Verdict Watch in the Michael Dunn trial.
