Statement on behalf of victim Joe Friedman regarding Attorney Stephanie Rapkin’s representation to the court today to have the court remove her case to outside Milwaukee County

 

By - Jul 24th, 2020 05:36 pm

”As you heard in court today, Attorney Rapkin will ask the court for a change of venue presumably because she cannot get a fair jury in Milwaukee County because of the publicity.

However, the fact is this incident has garnered national media exposure beyond the borders of Milwaukee County.

I think the real reason that Attorney Rapkin wants to get a jury from outside Milwaukee County is that she would like to draw from a jury pool that may not be as sympathetic to the Black Lives Matter movement.”
