“When you enter the court room, the number on rule is to never ask a question to which you don’t already know the answer. It’s the best way to get the truth but it’s also the best way to win. I’ve never lost, so when Jason walked into my office, I expected” he would already know the answer to each inquiry he had for me. I wasn’t sure what to do as he stood there.
What was I to say? I guarantee he already knew the answer. He was the one who’d trained me in the first place. But the, why would the ADA ask his own wife instead of just removing himself and watching me go down? His life didn’t need to end, nor his career, because of something I did more than 30 years ago.
“No,” I lied, though it wasn’t entirely a lie I suppose. I hadn’t meant to kill him. My only intention was to give him a taste of his own medicine. “But I’m not sorry it happened.”
With that, Jason set down his ring and left me to await the detectives who’d been outside the door.
I’d lost my husband with one word and sealed my fate with an honest opinion.
