Defense lawyer Maria Mena: “In every case there are two sides: My side, your side and the truth.”
The vast majority of Americans believe that anyone accused of even the most heinous of crimes deserves competent legal representation.
On the other side of the judicial coin is that most Americans would arguably find repugnant those in the legal profession who would specialize in ensuring a not guilty ruling of those accused of murder, kidnapping, sexual torture, rape, drug trafficking, sexual slavery, treason, etc.
The developing news story of the vaginal, anal and oral rape, at times simultaneously, of a 14-year-old high school freshman in the rather wealthy county of Montgomery, Maryland at the hands of two illegal aliens certainly has emotions running high.
For those who’ve been out of the news loop the past week or so, Breitbart.com sums up a recent interview between Tucker Carlson and defense attorney David Moyse, who had just been hired to defend 18-year-old illegal alien suspect Henry E. Sanchez.
Sanchez Milian and Jose Montano, 17, allegedly raped the victim orally, vaginally, and anally, sometimes simultaneously, in a bathroom stall on March 16 as she cried out in pain and begged them to stop, according to a police interview with the victim. After the victim reported the alleged rape to school staff, a forensic specialist found blood and bodily fluids in the boys’ bathroom.
During the course of Carlson’s interview, it became plain that lawyer Moyse would play the “she asked for it” card against the victim.
Following a portion where Carlson tried to make Moyse give him an answer on how he’d feel if one of his daughters was in the same class as his client, Carlson then took offense to the lawyer saying that there “could be a number of questions asked about all three of the people involved in this” case.
“Man, you better be right about this if you’re good to be impugning the character of a 14-year-old girl who says she was raped,” Carlson exclaimed. “Other people said they heard her screams. To impugn her character, you really before God better be sure that you are on the right side of this.”
“My only point to you,” the Fox News personality stated. “Have you thought through the moral consequences? I know you play a role and I’m glad to defense lawyers exist. But before you say something like that, do you think, ‘Man, I’m kind of putting my soul on the line a little bit?’”
Since the rather stunning Tucker Carlson interview, the legal team representing the 17-year-old Jose Montano appeared on the Fox News program “First 100 Days” hosted by Martha MacCallum.
It was during that interview that lawyer David Wooten made clear to most reasonable and objective citizens that he intended to place the blame for the public “outrage” of the crime directly on the shoulders of … wait for it… Donald Trump.
Much like lawyer Johnny Cochran who shifted blame away from OJ Simpson to focus on the unpopularity of the Los Angeles Police Department during the Nicole Brown-Ron Goldman murder case, all the lawyers for the two illegal aliens have to do is find just one very hard-core anti-Trump jurist to end up with a hung jury, thusly ensuring the two walk free.
As seen on the video below, lawyers David Wooten and Maria Mena, as stated in part;
“We think it’s important to come to talk to the public right now because the sensationalism and the outrage and the hysteria taking place in the last week is getting out of control. The reason for that, I believe, is because of the disgusting vitriol that’s been spewed by Donald Trump…“

Hockey Brawl at the Green Turtle
Attorney David Wooten convinced a very tough judge in D.C. Superior Court to acquit his client of two counts of assault, for an altercation that occurred at the Green Turtle restaurant outside the Verizon Center, after a Washington Caps hockey game. Mr. Wooten’s client was on parole for a prior felony assault, and could have been sent back to prison for an additional 7 years if convicted. Upon hearing the verdict, the prosecutor and his boss were left with their jaws hanging open. They couldn’t believe that this tough judge did not believe the 4 Government witnesses who testified as to the assault that split one young man’s eye open. But Mr. Wooten was not the least bit surprised. Justice was served.
Confession Suppressed in Upper Marlboro
A Prince George’s County judge made a rare decision to credit the testimony of attorney David Wooten’s client over a detective’s testimony, and to suppress the defendant’s confession, which led to the discovery of cocaine hidden in a wall. Mr. Wooten’s client was facing certain jail and deportation if convicted of felony cocaine possession with intent to distribute. It is a rare feat to convince a judge to suppress a confession. A week after this victory, the entire case was dismissed and Mr. Wooten’s client got to remain in the United States a free man.
NOT GUILTY of Burglary
Attorney David Wooten convinced an Annapolis judge to dismiss all 10 counts of burglary, malicious destruction of property, and theft of over $3,000 worth of copper wire and piping. The prosecutor was shocked, considering that Wooten’s client and 3 other individuals were found standing in the rain changing clothes at 4 am in 40 degree weather, with all of the copper in the back of their truck, and fresh mud tracks leading directly to the crime scene.
Mr. Wooten successfully argued that there wasn’t enough evidence linking his client to the crime. The client now maintains a clean record, while his co-defendant (who had a different lawyer) received 90 days in jail and was deported.
NOT GUILTY of Theft at Maryland Live Casino
In Anne Arundel County District Court, Maryland criminal defense attorney David Wooten convinced a judge to find his client Not Guilty of theft at the Maryland Live Casino. This amazing result came despite the Defendant being caught “red handed” on casino security footage, picking up and combing through a lost wallet. The victim, an elderly house wife, swore that the Defendant removed $1,500 from the wallet. The judge begrudgingly agreed with Mr. Wooten that reasonable doubt existed.
