I wouldn't say biased because they drive cars. I think the attorney thinks that they can frame it such that the jury thinks "omg that could have been ME hitting the guy! Let's let her off easy."
Either that or Soares wasn't giving **** for a deal and wanted to make an example of her. Entirely possible. This is the 'maverick' DA candidate who was booted off the Dem ballot and got elected anyway because he actually had a reasonable platform.
Depending on my schedule I may try to stop in and watch some of the trial.
