Court Says Have Some Style

Posted Monday, September 19, 2016 by Andrew Charles Huff

A sense of style can usually help one move forward but in a recent drug possession trial, the defendant wanted to “Go Basic.”

Our Washington Division One Appellate Court considered a challenge to a drug possession conviction where the defendant Mr. Terry Caver wanted to where his jail clothes instead of civilian wear at trial, but was denied so by the trial court.

But does wearing regular civilian clothes at trial prejudice the client? Not according to our Appeals Court, who upheld the conviction for possession…and having a very bad fashion sense.
