About

Public Speaking With Conviction, Literally and Figuratively

“In my five and a half some years as a Prosecutor, I believe that the Defendant is probably the most violent of all that I have come across…he is a significant threat to everyone he comes across and everyone who lives around him. I have no doubt, absolutely no doubt in my mind, that when Mr. Ball gets out, somebody will end up dead.” –Marion County Prosecutor-
