Earlier, the defense called James Furgal
as an expert witness on knives.
He is the former president and CEO of Camillus Cutlery in New York.
On cross examination by prosecutor Jason Saliba, Furgal
was hired as a witness through an agency and his
fee was $100 per hour plus expenses.
Daker then asked Furgal
if other witnesses, including police, and others in the courtroom including Saliba and lead prosecutor Evans are paid to be there, causing Saliba to object and then declare: "I just want to make it real clear for taxpayers: I don't make $100 an hour to be here."
