Some prosecutors similarly noticed a hesitance to ''convict'' without a confession on the stand.
** Viewers may not catch on for some time that most of Perry's "trials" are actually pre-trial hearings. They're held to determine whether or not there should even be a trial. Part of the reason it was done this way was to avoid having to cast twelve more people to play a jury.
