‘Objection’ objection rejected (access required)

Robert Muckenfuss, a defense attorney, was sure he had said all the words he needed to register his objection, but for a while it appeared he left out one. So Muckenfuss's client, Najjar De'Breece Byers, was found guilty of armed robbery and criminal conspiracy in York County, even though Muckenfuss protested that the only incriminating testimony was hearsay. And when the Court of Appeals ruled that Muckenfuss erred by not proclaiming "Objection" before he moved to strike what he called hearsay, he took the case to the South Carolina Supreme Court.
