John Burkoff on Dueling Narratives in State Sen. Orie's Trial
Professor John Burkoff told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the prosecution and defense were presenting starkly different narratives as testimony began in the trial of State Sen. Jane Orie. ""The strategy, obviously, is that the prosecution wants to show this is a clear pattern... The defense strategy is that these were minor events, or they were done on comp time because these people had an interest in the political future of the Orie sisters. There's two different narratives being spun."
