A: This is a question other lawyers would probably do well not to answer. This is the kind of question to ask your attorney. He will likely be able to give you the most knowledgeable answer, even if it is that he doesn't know. No lawyer can predict what a judge will or won't do in any given situation, but maybe he can advise you about the judge's tendencies in such situations. Trust in your lawyer and good luck.
