It was an emotional day inside an Orange County courtroom as opening statements began in the trial for the man accused of stabbing his former Universal Studios co-worker. The victim and several witnesses testified as the suspect looked on.

I would have liked an update on the victim.

Is he doing ok ?

I hope they will follow up after the trial has concluded.

Well how do you think he is if he's testifying?

Not surprisingly, the guy was found guilty:

Pretty big range between "able to testify" and "full recovery"...

There was quite a bit of concern at first as to whether he would ever art again. His stuff was good, he was making a name for himself, and he did quite a bit more than just Universal sketches. He'd just gotten married, too, if I recall correctly.

That's what I'd like to know more about. It's a shame whenever a tragic incident like this to comes along to rip away one's livelihood.

Seems to me he had a really stubborn client (himself), and idiot for an attorney, or both.

"Found guilty" means you couldn't come to *any* plea agreement even when there was ZERO doubt about the fact that he did the stabbing....enough to give the case to the jury knowing what they heard in testimony. SMH...
