Linda talks with N-P-R's John McChesney in Sacramento, California, about reports that prosecutors in the Unabomber trial turned down an offer from defendant Theodore Kaczynski to plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence. The defense team has also abandoned plans to use a mental defect defense. The move will preclude the use of expert testimony, but lay witnesses will still be able to testify as to their observations of Kaczynski's mental health.
