A Less Fashionable Death Row



Looks matter at high-profile trials like Spector's - CNN.com

(CNN) -- "Jurymen seldom convict a person they like, or acquit one that they dislike." -- Clarence Darrow

A moussed, tousled brown hairstyle is murder trial defendant Phil Spector's latest look.

Since April, the murder trial of music producer Phil Spector has been playing out in Los Angeles, California, oddly contrasting gruesome CSI details with the defendant's daily fashion emergency.

Jurors finally will go behind closed doors for deliberations at the end of the week.

Their impressions of Spector's over-the-top fashion statements and nebbish-like demeanor could weigh as heavily, legal analysts say, as any of the conflicting expert testimony about ballistics, blood spatter and other forensic evidence....

So, I wonder why anyone could be against death penalty in light of cases such as this. Anyone who doesn't wear Versace should be convicted of something, right?

I don't know about what he's wearing, but seems to me that Emperor Palpatine there will get off using his Sith Lord mind powers.

There is no hairstyle that would make him look good. Moussy or Mousy? I think the latter.

Ha! He is a little Emperor-ish, isn't he? We'll have to wait to see the lightning.

Hmmmm, maybe anybody who does wear Versace should be convicted of something...
