I Tommy Tucker talking about Aaron Broussard he's got some stuff going on with the courts and it relates to a confession. He's represented now by buddy Lehman but Robert Jenkins who handled. The trial initially says he may have provided ineffective counsel because key information was withheld. By the US attorney's office and budding -- I think is use the word. Conspiracy in the morning -- you Dylan. And finally you Hollywood's. Well I guess they we find out what's called put it to 55 vote in the post conviction remedy. And he's essentially alleging that. Either the convictions should be vacated. All are alternatively. This sentencing should be dictated. Because at the time that those events occurred. That would. Misconduct but. Taking place.

And clean it up again body not confess nobody's found innocent. And this guy didn't confess to anything he pled guilty be because of the situation at that time is it was perceived. To be in the US attorney's office what led to the -- guilty plea again. Well he felt that company at the time he himself. Re use certain. Attack mode and he suspected that the FBI and let the office. Well speaking implementations. Improperly in the press. That didn't go anywhere. Because the government at the time. Complaining about an affidavit Latin did. His presence his assistant and man. All represented to the judge. That. That would that would you know improperly. Soul. That but. Bruce saw -- on what this improper conduct. Didn't didn't go anyway he then tried to -- Let those authors and again. That it. Leak anything so ultimately. What we are collecting is that he felt at the time. He wanted to and that would call when. All of our quick week. Which essentially says you know it yet but acted like this but I'm really not guilty of what the government says that his ability. So -- it opposition that because. Now that's going on that would secret. Proceedings. Product that angle -- way that it was and up being forced out that that was my outing misconduct. On the part of latins -- Secret between the US attorney's office and judge Engelhard. And so upbeat defense ploy but not -- taught law. So and and and look and I think judge angle but has done a tremendous service but ultimately. Landing a new crop of those defendants in that case but on the other hand. Independents who work being affected by this heavy handed. We win we win we win we win column to in the -- -- -- the time. You know. Didn't have the benefit of raising that misconduct. He's as a bargaining chip to. Ghetto where that is on ultimately to try to get that the prosecution dismissed.
