There s no way you re going to go back in that jury room and come back with a not guilty verdict. We next consider the appellant's argument that trial counsel's admission of the appellant's guilt when combined with trial counsel's comments regarding mercy constituted ineffective assistance of counsel.
It's kind of tough for me to stand here and look you in the face, based on all that, and tell you that my client deserves mercy.
