Duncan chose the prison garb

Here’s an odd note: The reason Joseph Duncan was wearing prison-issue yellow scrubs in court today was because he wanted to. The convicted killer’s attorneys wanted him to dress in civilian clothes for today’s court proceedings, but Duncan refused. U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge confirmed that with both Duncan and his attorneys for the record at the close of today’s jury selection proceedings. “Mr. Duncan, you made the decision and the choice to wear the prison garb rather than the civilian clothes that counsel wanted you to wear, is that correct?” the judge asked Duncan, and both he and his attorneys assented.
