"We have a citizen facing the state" Bobesich told the jury. "The state has unlimited power, unlimited money, unlimited time" in their pursuit of this case, the lawyer added. "What has the accused got? He's got me, he's got you, he's got very limited resources."
Mr Bobesich is very active in our community; he has been active in politics, he has been active in social and sports organizations, and he has contributed generously of his time and expertise in making this community a very good place in which to live.
