NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There was another legal brouhaha Thursday in the trial of Gigi Jordan, the former pharmaceutical executive and socialite accused of killing her 8-year-old autistic son.
As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported, attorneys on both sides were on their feet shouting in court as they responded to questions about a jailhouse interview Jordan gave to The Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper quotes Jordan as saying she rejected earlier plea deals that would have required her to serve a short prison sentence. She said she opted for a jury trial so she could tell her story about what happened to her son, Jude Mirra, according to the Journal. She alleges the boy was sexually abused by his biological father.
