21 THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2010, 12:31 P.M.2 (The following proceedings are a redactedversion3 of the defense closing arguments, omitting objections,4 rulings and sidebars at the request of the orderingparty).5 MR. LENAMON: Thank you, Judge. Good afternoon.6 ALL JURORS: Good afternoon.7 MR. LENAMON: I want to read you a little blurb8 from Ms. Rifkin's closing argument back in July of 2010.9 "And then, of course, what does he tell the detective? I10 snorted cocaine. Oh, yeah, you weren't acting like it."11 There's no corroboration for that, that has been12 presented to you. There's not a shred of evidence to that13 except the defendant's statement about taking cocaine.14 That was Ms. Rifkin's statement during the trial15 before we introduced the crack cocaine to you in thepenalty16 phase. That was her position back then.17 Today she tells you, after spending an extensive18 amount of time attacking my witnesses, that none of these19 doctors have any corroboration and it's all self-servingand20 there's no value to any of this.21 So I decided while I was listening to her during22 her closing argument that I was going to change the23 structure of my closing a little bit and take it a little24 bit different direction than I had planned to do.
