Tavares Spencer Trial-Coko Takes The Stand
The question was asked by the Tampa media if Coko McDonald would testify against her attacker or even be there in the audience as the Tavares Spencer trial started yesterday.
Well, she did. Sis was looking good as she described the events of that horrific April 9 day.
And yeah, not a surprise to me that Spencer's defense attorneys are already trying to deploy the 'trans panic' defense. They actually claimed that since McDonald made sexual advances toward their client, the now 17 year old teen felt scared for his life and shot her.
WTF? Just another sterling example of why the 'trans panic' defense needs to be banned and consigned to the legal ash heap.
Gee, I hope the jury didn't buy those woof tickets the defense attorney was selling, but then again, we have previous experience with Florida juries buying bull feces laden defense cases up the road in Sanford, FL. .
The Spencer trial is expected to wrap up by the end of the week.
