We reached out to Scott Broyles to provide legal analysis of Randall Kerrick trial. Broyles is a former federal prosecutor in Charlotte who now teaches criminal law at the Charlotte School of Law. He says he wasn't surprised at Kerrick's decision to testify.
"You can say all you want about a 5th Amendment right not to have to testify. The jury still takes it very seriously and looks very suspiciously at someone who decides not to testify and give their own account," Broyles says.
