Submission + - Reiser seeks retrial

Hal_Porter writes: Despite turning down a pretrial deal that would have got him a three year sentence and then accepting a later deal where he apologised for the murder and showed the police where he buried the body, Hans Reiser wants another trial. As wired put it "Now the 44-year-old Reiser says he thinks the latest deal was supposed to have netted three years. And he said his lead attorney, William DuBois, who he often butted heads with during trial, was out to get him. Reiser wrote that he believed DuBois suffered from an excess of oxytocin." Dubois said "[Nina Reiser] had an ulterior motive to marry Hans. It couldn't have been out of love that she married Hans Reiser," DuBois said. "I can't see anybody loving Hans Reiser." "He has to be one of the least attractive people you can imagine," DuBois continued. "And she's a doll." He faces an uphill battle "Jurors, and even the judge, did a horrible job concealing their amusement when Reiser was on the stand. The often shook their heads in disbelief or openly mocked his ongoing testimony."
