Kendall Coffey on the Adam Matos Trial
Kendall Coffey took some time to speak with Heather Hansen from the Law & Crime Network about the Adam Matos murder case. 32-year-old Adam Matos has been accused of quadruple murder. Matos’ ex- girlfriend, her parents, and her new boyfriend were found stacked on top of each other less than a mile away from their Hudson, FL home.
Heather said that she was shocked that the attorneys haven’t questioned many of the witnesses and asked Coffey’s opinion on why. Coffey said, “Well, I think they recognize that this is a horrible crime, four murders. In some instances, extreme brutality in the manner of death and that the evidence is absolutely overwhelming. What do you do in a case like this? You hope that at the end of the trial where you expect guilty on everything, you’ve still got some jurors that might have an open mind to not sentencing your client to death. As you know, in very difficult murder cases, it’s a huge win for the defense if rather than a death sentence, their client is sentenced to life in prison. That seems like an odd goal of a strategy, but in some cases, that’s the best you can possibly hope for.”
