As part of his 14 felonies and one misdemeanor, my client is charged with two counts of assault and battery on the same person - one a felony, one a misdemeanor. The prosecutor calls the complaining witness.
Prosecutor: "On 05 January, you were attacked by Mr. Smith twice?"
Witness (looking confused): "Ummm, no . . ."
Prosecutor: "Mr. Smith attacked you twice on the 5th, didn't he?"
Me: "Objection, your honor he's leading the witness . . ."
Witness: "Oh, yeah, he attacked me twice."
At this point we go through all the evidence of the felony A&B and then:
Prosecutor: "And Mr. Smith attacked you another time that night?"
Witness: "Ummm, no."
Prosecutor: "Didn't Mr. Smith throw urine on you earlier that night?"
Me: OBJECTION! He's leading the witness!
Judge: "How's that a leading question? He can ask him yes or no questions."
Me: "That's a highly suggestive question meant to get a particular answer."
Judge: "I don't think it's leading. Over ruled" [to the witness] "Try to remember better so the prosecutor doesn't have to lead you."
