During the trial which lasted 21 days, the prosecution argued that the defendant had murdered a man as he sat on his front porch. The prosecution introduced 150 exhibits into evidence and called 27 witnesses including two expert witnesses. During closing arguments Attorney Jordan reminded the jury that a police officer had been charged with two counts of lying to a police officer during a violent crime investigation and argued that as a crack dealer, the deceased was involved in a very dangerous profession in a very dangerous city and that any number of people could have wanted him killed. Attorney Jordan, in a gutsy move, recited the lyrics to 10 Crack Commandments by Biggie Smalls, a crack dealer turned rapper/entertainer. The lyrics paint an accurate description of the dangers faced by drug dealers.
