Having never had an actual conversation with Cristina Gutierrez, I can’t say for sure how she felt about Adnan or his guilt or innocence. It would seem, from Episode 10, that she was broken up after the trial which could have been from either from her believing an innocent client just got convicted or that she just felt bad for having lost a trial. I can’t say for sure because from what I know she never spoke the family about it either.
His other attorneys did though. I visited Justin Brown, Adnan’s appellate attorney, yesterday to discuss the case and then asked if he would do a little update on the post-conviction as well as comment on how he feels about Adnan’s guilt or innocence. Here he is:
Then, Chris Flohr, one of Adnan’s original attorneys, stopped my office. He was kind enough to join my weekly hangout with Pete and spoke at length about his frustration with the case and how he remembered Adnan from 15 years ago. Chris, along with others, will join an advisory board I’m creating for Adnan’s grassroots campaign. We are both excited that he’s back with this case.
