'A confession, not a defense'

WisPolitics Courtwatch blog:

Dane Co. Dist. Atty. Brian Blanchard says the "everybody else is doing it" defense should not be allowed in the trial involving state Rep. Scott Jensen and former Assembly aide Sherry Shultz.

The document filed with Dane Co. Judge Steven Ebert yesterday lists a number of arguments Blanchard would like to see excluded from the trial...

"A claim that 'other guys were doing it' is a confession, not a defense, and it would be grossly misleading and confusing to a jury for defense counsel to be allowed to treat this as anything but a confession attrial," writes Blanchard to Dane Co. Circuit Judge Steven Ebert.
Courtwatch has a link to the whole Blanchard filing.
