The Staircase Aftershow – Chapter 6: The Prosecution’s Revenge
It is like deja vu all over again as The Docket Podcast returns to an episode-by-episode examination of a real life crime docu-series. Only this time its all about The Staircase instead of Making A Murderer.
Join us – criminal defence lawyer Michael Spratt and former federal prosecutor and law professor Emilie Taman – as we dissect The Staircase chapter-by-chapter. Each podcast we will break down the legal strategy, evidentiary issues, and give our opinions on the case – with a Canadian twist.
In Chapter 6: The Prosecution’s Revenge the prosecution puts its case to the jury – complete with prejudicial “gay sex” and a speculative similar fact application implicating Peterson in the 1980s death of his friend Elizabeth Ratliff.
Peterson’s defence team of David Rudolf and Tom Maher take apart the Crown’s case with some great courtroom work – but will it be enough to overcome the unfairness create by the prosecution?
