Lawyer for a suspect in gruesome triple murder fears his client’s horns, elf ears and ‘666’ tattoo could turn jurors against him
Yes, that might be a problem: a lawyer for an accused triple murderer is afraid the jury will be turned off by his “unusual” appearance, which includes horns and a “666” tattoo.
Caius Veiovis, 33, is the third suspect to face trial in the August 2011 slayings of David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell. Veiovis’ signature look includes two rows of bumps resembling horns protruding from his forehead, a ‘666’ tattoo between them, and other facial and neck tattoos. He also had surgically altered the shape of his ears to make them elf-like.
After discussing the matter, a Hampden Superior Court judge on Thursday told defense lawyer James Reardon Jr. he would ask potential jurors if there was anything about the Veiovis’ appearance that would keep them from being fair.
Please. I’m so sick of this tactic: People cover themselves in tattoos and piercings in order to scream “I am different” and “I don’t play by society’s rules” (or in this case, “I embrace evil”) at anyone who looks at them, and then screech that it’s unfair when people actually: believe it.: Anyway, it sounds like this freak has a lot more working against him than devil horns and tattoos. But if he’s convicted, his lawyer will blame “discrimination” and “stereotyping.”
