After more than two weeks of testimony from witnesses called by the prosecution, the trial of Willie Clark, the man accused of killing Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, could soon end.
According to the Associated Press, prosecutors will call two witnesses in their rebuttal case, the lawyers will make their closing arguments, and then jury deliberations will commence.
Along the way, the judge will instruct the juror regarding the law. It’s a process that can take some time, since the lawyers often quibble over the details of every sentence in what can be a lengthy list of explanations regarding the controlling legal principles and the manner in which they should be applied.
Still, the case soon will be ending. And based on the evidence we’ve seen, Clark could be going away for a long, long time.
