House moves closing argument bill, measure stalls in the Senate May 1, 2004 Regular News House moves closing argument bill, measure stalls in the Senate Defense attorneys in criminal trials may lose their sandwich— that’s what some representatives and attorneys call the strategic advantage of having the first and last word in a criminal trial’s closing arguments.In the middle of the debate is the sponsor, Rep. Carol Green, R-Ft. Myers, who said to the House, “This is a simple and straightforward bill,” at its third reading where it passed 86 to 21 on March 29.However, if this bill is likened to a sandwich, then it has given many Democratic legislators heartburn. At its second reading, Christopher Smith, D-Ft. Lauderdale, said that the Florida Constitution states that it is a due procedural right for the defense to go last, and asked Green, “Are you asking the House to change the constitution?”Green: “It’s debatable, and it will take two-thirds vote to make this happen.”At issue is whether this is a substantive or procedural matter. Smith asked whether passing this bill would be “legislatively overrunning the Supreme Court case of Week v. Florida ?” Green answered that this is a substantive matter, and the legislature has the “right to regulate.”“Why now?” and “What’s wrong with the system now?” were just a couple of questions that surfaced at the first reading, and then resurfaced at the second reading of this bill.If it passes, the bill would repeal Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure 3.250, that allows for the defense to maintain open and closing arguments as long as no other witnesses, or other evidence, other than the defendant’s testimony, is introduced in a criminal trial.But prosecutors must stave off their hunger for the defense’s sandwich for the time-being, because the bill has yet to be heard in Senate. In addition, the proposed bill has a companion, SB 2422, but the Senate has referred it to the Judiciary and the Criminal Justice committees.
Whether learning a language, mastering a sport or gathering gobs of greenbacks, starting young is always a plus. It’s also crucial to get into good habits early, before hard-to-break bad ones are cast in concrete.A perfect example: Start a lifetime of saving and borrowing at a credit union, which may cater to young adults better than a bank can.“A great concern for people just entering the workforce is the stagnant nature of wages and benefits, so it makes sense to look at opportunities to reduce costs and receive higher rewards,” says Marco Pantoja, interim director of the University of Missouri Office for Financial Success in Columbia, Missouri.Here are 4 reasons millennials should consider a credit union.You may get a better deal on a savings account or certificate of deposit. This fall, the average 5-year CD paid 0.85% APY, Bankrate’s survey of banks and thrifts found. Credit unions, on average, paid 1.55% APY, according to the National Association of Federal Credit Unions.It may be cheaper to borrow from a credit union. “When borrowing, one of the major needs for which people use financial institutions, credit unions have lower rates and lower fees,” Pantoja says. continue reading » 97SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
