Jodi Arias Murder Trial – Penalty Phase, Day 3

05/20/2013

Last week we left off believing the two witnesses for Jodi’s character would be Darryl Brewer and childhood friend. Patti Womack.  Patti has a history of drug and alcohol abuse.

After a long time in chambers with Brewer and Womack, court was abruptly halted for the day.

Now we come to find out Womack will NOT be witness.  Nurmi filed a motion on Sunday claiming Womack is withdrawing after receiving death threats – much like Alyce LaViolette???  Sounds like a whole lotta smoke being blown!!!

The real question is, when Arias speaks to the jury will Judge Stephens have the good sense to limit her ramblings!

10:10 defense team in chambers…surprise!

Screen shot 2013-05-20 at 1.31.21 PMCourt begins at 10:28…

Nurmi…oh good lord he’s back on the motions that the jury wasn’t sequestered and Juan misconduct and witness intimidation.  The court has done nothing to protect Ms. Arias’ rights.

Reinforced tin foil hat, doubled barf bags, and heavy-duty hip-waders donned!

Juan asks why Ms. Womack isn’t in court.  I asked her questions bout her drug use and she refused to answered.  I asked about pictures of her and Ms. Arias and she asked to leave the room.

Nurmi and Willmott went with her.  They are not her attorneys and appeared to have advised Ms. Womack.

Juan indicates the Womack sold her wedding pics and video to HLN for money!

Nurmi says the prosecutor said things that are not true and it’s bluster!

Nurmi is slamming the court for the way things have been handled!

OMG, this is pitiful!

Stephens rules the mistrial is not accepted and pretty much says shut-up and sit down!

Nurmi and asks that he and Willmott withdraw from the case.  We cannot meet the standard of being able to represent the client.

Nurmi now says the defense will not be calling any witnesses! Not calling witnesses opens the door on appeal for Jodi to claim ineffective counsel!

Wow, everybody back to chambers!

Jodi’s the leader of this sad little band and she’s screwed herself.

10:54, still in chambers…

Back at 10:58….

Wild About Trial @WildAboutTrial

Defense and #JodiArias just came back into courtroom. They don’t look extremely happy. We might resume shortly. Judge is here.

Jodi will speak tomorrow.

Damnit!  Court adjourned till 9:30 tomorrow!

The Alexander’s look like they are ready to jump out of their skin.

This is so wrong to do to the family, the court, and the public!

I am beyond pissed!!!

    Very interesting that Juan mentioned that Patti did NOT disclose the income (licensing fees) that she received from networks for all the photos she supplied to them!!!!

      That was for being on Nancy Grace a while back!!!

    • 05/20/2013 at 4:21 pm

      Now Patti will have legal issues with the State of California (drug things, I’m presuming), possible legal issues with the State of Arizona (more drug issues and I’m thinking possibly prostitution ???) and further issues with the IRS for not reporting income… would not surprise me if she just disappears for a few years…. Mexico is very close.

      Patti is on welfare in Ca and did not report any income. That is a nono.

    I’ll tell you who was intimidating and threatening Patti. WOBO herself! I’d bet she made all sorts of threats about what she would do if Patti disclosed anything negative. Tell the world all about Patti’s inconsequential, sordid life. Not that anyone but Patti would care

    I have never been so disgusted at a defense teams gutter tactics. Makes me want to puke!

    Donchais: “Not calling witnesses opens the door on appeal for Jodi to claim ineffective counsel! Jodi’s the leader of this sad little band and she’s screwed herself.”
    Donchais, I don’t understand. If not calling witnesses opens the door for appeal, how is Jodi screwing herself? Isn’t that what she would want, a chance at an appeal?

    • donchais
      05/20/2013 at 2:32 pm

      Based on all that’s happened and the judge (no matter how infuriating to us) getting all this on record, I don’t see an appeal happening…stalling yeah, appeal nope!

      • 05/20/2013 at 2:36 pm

      So Darryl is not testifying so they could say they were not going to call any witnesses so that then Jodi could file an appeal for ineffective council??? Why not just have him give a speech then they could argue the Patty point later??

      05/20/2013 at 5:24 pm

      I shut the whole thing down and played some solitaire, just to get my dander down to a decent level.

      From what I understand from HLN (Beth), the mistrial would have been for the sentencing phase only. The guilty verdict would stand.

      I hope I got that right!

      • MMD
        05/21/2013 at 6:39 am

        I went to sleep about an hour after you posted (for a nap) because I was so pissed and slept all night. And yes, I saw Beth, the only one with ANY credibility on HLN, and that’s what she said ritanita.

  8. HJ Madison
    05/20/2013 at 2:24 pm

    Dam! Let Beth speak! She was talking about an alternative strategy…. bet the DT is going to get an injunction to stop this and a special hearing about why JA needs new lawyers ….

    • Kristi
      05/20/2013 at 2:50 pm

      Which should be able to be refuted by jodi and sandy arias’s long letters to the court stating that Nurmi is the best attorney ever and Jodi would be lost without him and please judge, force him to stay my lawyer!

      • Janna
        05/20/2013 at 10:27 pm

        BINGO! Very good points Kristi.

    • Kathy A.
      05/20/2013 at 7:05 pm

      Not the Court’s issue that the DT can’t find anyone else to testify on JA’s behalf, at least no one who can withstand the scrutiny of the prosecution. Ringling Brothers have nothing on the Wurmi the Clown and Gidget the Spring-Loaded Wonder circus that’s been presenting this defense.

    It is possible the DT is going to run off and get some special injunction to stop this part of the trial and hear the DT’s reason for wanting to pull out.

    The way Nurmster was acting.. I think something like that is definitely in the wind.

    • MMD
      05/20/2013 at 2:29 pm

      • 05/20/2013 at 2:30 pm

        not saying they will succeed MMD!!! Just saying it was pretty clear that’s what Nurmi was playing to.

    05/20/2013 at 2:27 pm

    The way that JA and Gidget were looking at the jury and Gidget was taking notes, I think they’re looking to bump another juror they don’t like.

    05/20/2013 at 2:27 pm

    Okay, she must be planning to address the jury directly so that she can’t be questioned. Poor jurors. On the plus side, they will get a tiny glimpse of what Travis faced when he was on the receiving end of her edification.

        05/20/2013 at 10:50 pm

        BINGO! I’ve been thinking the same thing cowgirl.

        I think she’ll spew from her hot garbage manifesto … mix some bits & pieces from the post-verdict interview with FOX … and weave in some surprise elements of raunchy atrocities against Travis, the judicial process, Juan, etc.

        This girl loves a bright spotlight. I fully expect her to go BATSHIT crazee. If I was in the courtroom tomorrow, I’d be in full protective gear.

    donchais — will this actually result in a “day off” for you, or do you have another trial to follow? I hope it is the former, so you can indulge yourself in your favorite pampering past time — even if it is just lying around doing nothing! ciao

      • HJ Madison
        05/20/2013 at 2:40 pm

        What is your next case? We can look at this as a time to study up.

      • donchais
        05/20/2013 at 2:47 pm

        The murder of 12-year old Brooke Bennett. Because some of this crossed state lines, it is a federal case which is never televised. You can find some here but most of what I wrote can be found on the blog I used to write for, Trials&Tribulations.

      • HJ Madison

  15. Family of Law
    05/20/2013 at 2:31 pm

    Well, I don’t know why I am feeling so surprised and disappointed? Really, this was to be expected, given how the DT has behave from the very start. They built a case on lies and character assassination. The jury has proven themselves wise, and the DT knew that PP would be decimated on the stand, so they once again addressed the court with more venom. Canceling Darryl without explanation was a BIG mistake- and no matter what JA says tomorrow, she knows she’s being given the DP- so her entire focus is her Appellate case.

  16. MMD
    05/20/2013 at 2:33 pm

    The def has a guilty client – why can’t they just accept that no matter what anyone says, they know what the outcome is going to be. Are they simply unable to accept defeat. They must be desperate to go after not only JM but the Judge as well. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Plus I don’t think that JA likes her new accomodations very well.

    • HJ Madison
      05/20/2013 at 2:36 pm

      It is about Death or LWOP, and nothing more. And, Jodi is such a wild card I think theynare worried about what she may say ….

    • Marilyn N
      05/20/2013 at 2:37 pm

      Just a little sample of her future accommodations!

    • 05/20/2013 at 2:40 pm

      hey they get more money this way.. they don’t want it to end either… and I am more and more convinced the getting Nurmi’s hourly rate upped was a ploy between Jodistein and Nurmi.. she could not have found a more suitable attorney if she searched this planet!!! They are like two peas in a pod. Unholy alliance if ever I’ve seen one.

      • nyccowgirl

        so that she can play the victim and say her family is not supportive? crazy manipulation of facts, as usual. this is such a cluster f*ck!

      • Family of Law
        05/20/2013 at 2:46 pm

        Yes, I just heard it earlier- that JA requested it based on “wanting to spare them”. Truth is more likely that the DT knew Juan could bring out the police interview with her M&D, and her sister being in and out of rehab, and JA smacking her brother with a baseball bat.

      • Kristi
        05/20/2013 at 2:59 pm

        I am sure WOBO asked them not to speak because every single one of them either has a criminal history or made recorded statements on national television that can used to de-edify Jodi. Did I misuse that non-word correctly? This has got to be the stupidest move this idiot murderer has made yet! The jury is going to be LIVID! I bet they’d order her to be hanged immediately in the town square at high noon if they could!

    • 05/20/2013 at 2:42 pm

      Plus wouldnt it go against her what she said in the police interview with Detective Flores? And I think we have only seen part of what they may have.

      • HJ Madison
        05/20/2013 at 2:44 pm

        Even so, JM would not have jumped up and down on the mom …

      • 05/20/2013 at 2:50 pm

        no but he may have asked

      • Lisa M
        05/20/2013 at 3:05 pm

        Can Juan still present facts arguing against mitigation, like that remorseless and slanderous post-verdict interview or is that no longer possible at this point?

    • ritanita
      05/20/2013 at 5:31 pm

      This whole mess was created by the convicted murderer herself. She threw her parents under the bus and is unwilling to pull them out, dust them off, and let them speak about her life. Mom would be more than willing to take the blame for not recognizing how seriously mentally ill her daughter was. She can cry and say she should have taken her to a doctor to make her better when she was 7 years old. She could beg for her child’s life.

      If she took the burden, even Juan Martinez wouldn’t grill her too much.

      I got that idea from HLN and polished it up my own self!

      But no! Jodi leaves her parents as abusive. I’m betting that IF she allocates tomorrow, she will do a very vigorous job of demolishing her parents, Travis, etc.

        Please tell me that theres no chance they could win the appeal based on this bullshit?

      • HJ Madison
        05/20/2013 at 2:55 pm

        The appeal will cover all 3 facets of the trial as though they are seperate. The guilt phase, the aggravator phase and this, the penalty. No way will the guilt phase be reversed, unless there is something we just don’t know — like the jury really misbehaved. So, there COULD be a reversal of this phase, the penalty phase only. In which case, the penalty phase would be done again. That is all.

  20. MMD
    05/20/2013 at 2:41 pm

    And guess which reporter is completely in the middle of this defense – yep the aforementioned Michael Kiefer.

    Watching this where Wurmi is saying that JA didn’t want a live camera feed. Does he truly think anyone will believe that one with her 18 days on the stand plus all her interviews. 🙄

    OK.. I want to join the chorus on one thing…… PLEASE PLEASE what about Daryl.. why the heck couldn’t HE testify? The only thing I can think is it’s the DT chuckig a hissy fit and refusing to go on because they can’t represent her adequately under the given circumstances…. is that correct??

    • Family of Law
      05/20/2013 at 2:49 pm

      IMO the DT cancelled his testimony based on it looking pathetic that ONLY one person would be willing to speak on her behalf. It’s better that the jury to think they “chose” to not have any mitigation witnesses- and just let JA address the jury.

    This is all about the ineffective counsel arguement for an appeal. I would not be surprised if JA does NOT make a statement tomorrow … then turn around and blame the DT for her DP sentence. You gotta feel for both the Alexander family and the jury. The “show” continues.

    Good morning(?) Everyone! The most interesting thing that I noticed in the court this morning was the look on the face of Willmott as Nurmi was speaking. I tried to find words to describe it and the closest I could come was being at the top of the first hill of a very big roller coaster. It was like “Are we really going to do this? We’re up here and once we start down this hill, there’s no way out!” I think if Willmott were on this case alone, she would not have taken such a bold move. She was just along for the ride being driven by Jodi and Nurmi.

    And Dang! Every time I think it is safe to schedule an appointment, something screws it up!

        05/20/2013 at 5:24 pm

        Oh boy, I thought OJ’s was a farce with the judge, attorneys on both sides, then Scott Peterson with the parents actions during the trial and Geragos doing his schtick with the boat on the corner of property, then the Westerfield case with the attorney alluding to the parents or friends of parents killing the daughter and even throwing Westerfield’s son under the bus when the whole time he KNEW he had tried to make a deal with prosecutors in exchange for Westerfield telling them where the body could be found was awful. Then we get Baez/Casey Anthony….sheesh! But THIS trial, I think has gone to the top of the crazy trials. Nurmi with his slowwwww talking and his apparent relishing using every body part name he could over and over again (in preparation for his new job of defending sexual offenders?), Wilmott with her smiling inappropriately while asking questions, Hodi….I am still working on a description of her. The judge who seemingly allowed the defense to control the TIME. Her not controlling her courtroom better. I remember Judge Belvin Perry demanding the attorneys move the trial along because of the lives of the jurors. Perhaps he bent over backwards too much to please the jurors that they forgot there was a dead child involved and it was NOT a party. Sorry, Donchais, but this trial has brought me to the breaking point and I just want to smack the crap out of Arias, her mother (whom I did feel sorry for in the beginning), her attorneys, her “mitigation specialist”…..yeah, tell me again exactly WHAT she does. Phew, I am out of breath. I apologize for the rant.

      • donchais

        05/20/2013 at 9:09 pm

        This is hindsight, of course, but I wonder if had the jury been sequestered, things would have moved along much faster and not so many ridiculous delays and shenanigans tolerated from the defense, just because of the expense for one thing, but also being aware that the jurors were completely cut off from their lives. Even without sequester, this jury has been stellar but I’m sure they are beyond fed up…and the poor Alexander siblings, so close to some sort of resolution and JA still pulling the strings. They probably want to kill her themselves. Hell, I do.

    • 05/20/2013 at 3:05 pm

      I agree,, and her body language towards Jodi was definitely stand offish to say the least. She had a completely different posture, her chair was further away from Jodi’s, she had a different look on her face AND she kept well away from Jodi when Jodi attempted to lean in for the traditional BFF whisperings. PLUS I saw Jodi try to show her something at one time and Perky kept her hands clasped in front of her.. her gaze towards the judge and completely ignored Jodistein’s approach.

        looked it up for ya – nothing yet. I honestly do not believe there will be any legal implications for her. It’s a pretty minor issue , and usually gets a warning. There are few harcode po’s out there that would remand her immediately, but most would just talk to her and remind her of the fact that ja is now a convicted felon etc. Since she has not actually broken any laws – the outcome will be solely up to whatever her po decides.

    Throughout this trial the Defense has had a losing case. Overwhelming physical evidence of JA being a premeditating, pathological lying murderer. Impossible to have found any credible experts, witnesses or mitigating witnesses. The list of “experts” and witnesses has been laughable: Gus, Darryl, La Toilette, Dr. Dodgey, Dr. G, etc. The best they could come up with to speak on JA’s behalf during the penalty phase was an ex-boyfriend with a checkered past, and a friend from childhood, a drug addict, that showed up in court dressed like she was going to the beach- she refused to answer Juan’s questions, pled the 5th, she has profited financially from her buddy’s murder, and has no redeeming qualities that any juror would give credence to.

    They have scraped the bottom of the barrel, and got what was expected, sludge.

    All in all, JA’s defense is very telling- NO ONE of any value, could be found to defend a life that has no value.

    End rant.

    05/20/2013 at 3:13 pm

    I am laughing to myself because all of us seem so surprised that today was such a sideshow in court. Note to Self: Remember this is Jodi Arias we are dealing with. Nothing should surprise us here!!! If Wurmi had not specifically said that the jury would hear from Daryl Brewer and a” long time friend” of JA’s he might have been better off with the not calling anyone. Now the jury can wonder why the ONLY two witnesses he was going to call are not called. Not sure how that plays with the appeals board?? Also, anyone up for a bet that the threatening letter (s) to Womack were arranged by JA herself. I do remember the forged letters about Travis. Hopefully, Judge Stephens remembers them also.

    I can’t believe Wurmi is going after the judge – as irritated as I’ve gotten with her, she has bent over backward for Miss Murder. Today Wurmi sounded whinier than normal and can’t seem to suck it up that JA’s mitigation witnesses are not credible. It’s not the prosecution’s fault that she has no decent friends to stand up for her – the only person in her life who was upstanding and could have withstood cross examination on her behalf was Travis.

    • HJ Madison
      05/20/2013 at 4:06 pm

      Well, Nurmi asked for time to file a “special action”, and the judge denied. He may still file a “special action” and ask another judge to intervene and “stay” the proceedings until a hearing is held regarding Nurmi’s complaint. Jodi does have constitutional rights that Nurmi insists are being violated, most especially now she has a right to present mitigating factors and to have effective counsel. If Nurmi can convince another judge he has immediate issues that must be addressed and his relationship with Jodi was grown so acrimonious that he is no longer effective there would be a stay and a hearing. It is a long shot ….

      • 05/20/2013 at 4:11 pm

        so if he pursues this.. say at this stage hypothetical to actually finding a judge to hear his motions.. what would be a likely time frame for that alone??

      • HJ Madison
        05/20/2013 at 4:20 pm

        If it happens, it would need to happen by close of court today. A new judge would order the stay and schedule the hearing to occur within a day or two. The real clincher is finding another judge who is willing to step into this morass. Seems unlikely, especially given that if JA gets the DP (the ultimate penalty), there will be an automatic appeal. On the other hand …. it IS a DP case, so every effort will be made to ensure she gets a fair trial.

The only thing this beached whale is trying to protect is his law firm! He knows damn well she’s going to claim ineffective counsel when she does her appeal. Once she gets the DP he knows clients will not be beating a path to his door for legal assistance! Why cry now….what in hell could those two sorry witnesses have said to help your case…..nothing!! You couldn’t even put her family up to speak in her behalf because you all shot yourselves in the foot by claiming abuse and lack of support!

    I had heard that JA had done the throat slit gesture after Samantha’s VIS but I had not personally seen it until just NOW! Mickee D caught it and there is absolutely NO doubt how intentional that gesture is. She is true EVIL personified!



    The gesture is at 36:04 but start it a few seconds prior. Unbelievable.

      Seems to me that when WOBO does this she is out of control seething in anger, stemming from frustration because she isn’t pulling the strings. Remember when Casey Anthony would get frustrated/ mad and she would visibly shake? I think this is Jodi’s go-to act because even she knows she can’t jump out of her chair and strangle Samantha, and whoever else she has done this to. What is terrifying is that the gesture probably isn’t symbolic to her, rather its a fantasy that she is having of doing to the witnesses exactly what she did to Travis.

  48. 05/20/2013 at 3:56 pm

    the interesting thing is.. she does it in the same context as previously.

    evthing and ev1 in her life BEFORE Travis is just trash. Travis was the best thing that ever happened to her and she snuffed him just as easily as she took that bat to her brother and kicked that dog to death (and God knows what or who else she ‘offed’)

    I hope when she or if she gets up tomorrow that it is nothing but her telling ev1 on that jury she how “wronged” she’s been. I hope she goes on the attack on all of them!

    She is so stupid and weak, yet she THINKS she’s still winning.

It’s still there from back in 2008 and sadly her little sister seemed to idolize Jodi.

      I’ve come to a new perspective in the past few weeks. I sincerely doubt Jodi wants the the death penalty…think the smart-ass is trying a psychological ploy to trick the jury to LWOP were she get’s to exist in the general population and continue her manipulation and has everybody doing her bidding, including being able to continue to smear Travis and torture his family and friends and gain fame and money.

      While I believe in the DP for certain heinous and cruel crimes…kinda swinging toward a death row set-up, whatever ya wanna call it.

      Do away with the mightily costly DP appeals and years in court. Put ’em in a cell 23 hrs a day…no contact with public, no tv, no radio, or other inmates…just let ’em rot with no chance of practicing their evil.

      Death is way too easy an escape for her…just let her be driven insane and hopefully we get video of it!!! Or let her off herself…still the same end!

      OK, ducking now! 😈

    Jodi is in control of her defense. Womack isn’t testifying because she’ll be torn apart. Brewer isn’t testifying probably because he doesn’t want to….the man wouldn’t even show his face when he testified previously. They wouldn’t have mattered anyway. The only people that could possibly matter are Jodi’s family. They have been in that courtroom every day. You know they would testify if Jodi wanted them to. Obviously Jodi simply doesn’t want them to. Some are speculating now that perhaps even Jodi won’t speak tomorrow. No way. She will. It’s her moment in the spotlight. And Donchais, I’m almost certain that the Judge will give her a huge amount of leeway to talk as long as she wants. I’ve seen many other cases where disgusting defendants have spoken for hours and hours and hours. So be prepared. But the longer Jodi talks, just as in the guilt phase, the more the jury will detest and resent her.

        Jill, I wish I were able to approve some final edited version of the show. That is totally not allowed. I have NO IDEA what will end up in the program. They’ve filmed hours and hours of me, my mom, sister, dad, friends, prosecutor, etc. And they sprang on me after the fact that they had indeed reached out to and interviewed Shawn’s criminal defense attorney. It’s not that I’m against that, it’s just that they weren’t up front about it. So that bothered me. At the time I was interviewed, I wasn’t aware I’d be juxtaposed against Shawn’s attorney at any point. Things like that feel a bit slimy. At this point, I’m just dying to see the show and make sure they do my story justice rather than just try to be provocative with the tape recording, etc.

    I’m thinking that the DT and JA knew all along that they would not put witnesses on the stand for mitigation, that they intentionally served up two sketchy mcsketchersons to Juan knowing that he would expose them and send them running (JA happily handed her “friend” over to Juan knowing what would happen). The death threats are troubling, but not at all new. More and more, I believe they fed Darryl B and Patty W to the prosecution thinking at least one would get shredded by Juan’s light of truth, and they could throw a fit, hoping to suggest to the jury that the prosecution has been underhanded. It never made sense from the beginning that they would call these two, particularly PW. I’m calling scammie scammie on this whole phase.

    A woman who planned to testify as a character witness for Jodi Arias in a bid to spare her life decided Monday that she couldn’t go through with it, saying she had received death threats and was deeply conflicted about the case.

    Lawyers for Arias, who was convicted earlier this month of the frenzied murder of an ex-lover, quickly asked for a mistrial in the sentencing phase on the grounds that a witness had been intimidated. The judge denied the request.

    The potential witness, Patricia Womack, is a childhood friend of Arias who planned to testify about Arias’ abusive childhood. Besides the threats, she said that her heart went out to the family of Travis Alexander, whom Arias was convicted of killing.

    “I couldn’t do it,” she told NBC News in an email. “I feel there is so much good in Jodi to be saved but then also someone’s dear life was taken.”

    Court abruptly adjourned for the day after lawyers for Arias said they had no witnesses to call. It remained possible that jurors in the sentencing phase would hear from Arias herself, perhaps Tuesday.

    Karen DeSoto, a defense lawyer and legal analyst for MSNBC, said there were ways of overcoming Womack’s feelings of intimidation.

    “If she really is scared, then turn the cameras off,” she said. “There’s a lot of ways to cure whether somebody can testify. Clear the courtroom.”

    After the judge, Sherry Stephens of Maricopa County Superior Court, denied the mistrial request, lawyers for Arias asked to be taken off the case. The judge denied that request as well.

    Alastair Jamieson of NBC News contributed to this report.

      Oh yeah, sure her heart went out to the Alexanders! That’s why she was laughing and smiling with Mama Arias the day of their VIS. She got schooled by Juan, and she whimpering off to the woods, to lick her wounds.

      If he does do an interview I hope it isn’t with the same reporter. The interview with Wobo should never have happened. I don’t know about anyone else, but it appeared he was asking a scripted list of questions — because she was certainly ready with her “Trash Travis” answers. Disgusting to say the least….

    Does anyone know if the DT can be held in contempt (or whatever it would be called) for giving legal advice to a witness, as Juan indicated they had done last Thursday?

    • Family of Law
      05/20/2013 at 5:53 pm

      It’s not likely, their maneuvers today were IMO very orchestrated, this was not a last minute hissy fit done without thought to consequences. They planned this over the weekend- once they learned that Patty was cornered by Juan.

    I have an observation. Everyone talks incessantly about Jodi’s Appeal. My feeling about an Appeal is, Who Cares? Who cares if an Appeal is even successful or not? All the talk about Appeals is totally overrated. The reason is, because even if Jodi is successful on Appeal and is granted a new trial, she will have to go through a whole trial again. An Appeal cannot change the facts! The facts of this case are what will doom Jodi every time. You can give her 100 trials and she’ll be found guilty 100 times because she IS guilty. Super guilty! So I don’t care about Appeals. I don’t worry about them. I wish we didn’t have to go through all that for the sake of the family, but since we do, let’s remember to keep it in perspective. The facts are the facts!

    • Family of Law
      05/20/2013 at 6:17 pm

      Yes, younare absolutely right! No matter what amount of deliberate “set up” by the DT for the Appellate case, JA will lose. She is guilty, she was found guilty. That said, when I speak of her upcoming appeal(s), it’s to speak of her being DONE with her DT, and DONE with this jury, she knows it’s over, therefore JA, being a sick control freak narcissist, she has to now set ALL of her sights on “setting the stage” for her Direct Appeal. In JA’s twisted reality, she’s winning… And she is salivating at the thought of getting a new trial, which in reality she will not. The MOST she could hope for is a new jury for the sentancing phase, and that too is highly unlikely.

      So, I’m not worried either about any Appeal.

    I was once asked to be a mitigation witness in the Court Martial of a former student who generally inhabited by homeroom for 30 seconds every day. He’d come late, after the attendance cards were sent to the office and ask me to mark him present. When I’d explain that I didn’t have his card, he’d curse at me and go to the office. Eventually he was the only homeroom student to be transferred to the Vice Principal!

    About 8 years after he graduated, he was charged with “fragging” his commanding officer in Korea. Read, 1st degree murder.

    Well, I spoke to the guy for a while, wondering why he couldn’t get anyone who knew the kid better to testify. He said that he had interviewed hundreds of people and only had his mother and younger brother. He thought one of his teachers would help his case. By the time he got to me, he’d gone through every teacher who ever had any sort of contact with him.

    Not one person could honestly testify to his redeeming qualities. No friends, just two relatives.
    BTW, his father and other relatives had a wee little problem. They were members of the Mafia. Daddy was in jail waiting for extradition to Italy, where he was charged with murder. The others were all well-connected and their backgrounds would come out and impeach their character.

    Seems to me that Jodi is in the same situation. She’s burnt all her bridges with her whack-a-doodle machinations.

    I wonder which arms she twisted to get Darryl and Patricia. He seemed to be a rather reluctant witness. When on the stand, Juan asked him when he met Jodi. He answered, “When we were in love,” or something like that. What guy would answer that way? He was careful with his words in terms of Jodi and his son’s relationship. It seemed like he was walking on eggshells throughout his time on the stand. I recall thinking that Jodi was holding something over his head to destroy him unless he came through for her.

    As for Patty, we already know she’s a sad case herself. I have no idea how the DT twisted her arm! Juan said in court today that she told him Jodi had a good family life. I’m betting that the DT never bothered to tell her she would be publicly scrutinized on her character.

    As I used to tell my students, “CHARACTER COUNTS.”

    I was just thinking, if the dufense hadn’t piddled around last Thursday, they
    had their mitigators at hand and ready to testify that day.
    Boo Hoo! Like everything in JA’s life, it is everybody else’s fault once again!

    ABC15 : San Francisco-area criminal defense lawyer Michael Cardoza said the request to quit the case and the defense decision not to call any witnesses on Arias’ behalf could very well be a strategic move — but one that could backfire. “She could argue ineffective counsel on appeal, but the fact is, it’s anything but ineffective because what they’re doing is handing her an appeal,” Cardoza said. “So it’s actually very effective counsel.”

    Perhaps I’m dense, but why would anyone threaten Patty Womack against testifying? The purpose of witness intimidation is to prevent a witness from saying something that will be detrimental to the defendant. That doesn’t apply here. Patty cannot do anything to help convict the WOBO, that has already been done. She cannot harm her in any legal way. Granted, she may not be able to help the WOBO if the jury either doesn’t believe her, finds her to be less than trustworthy, or if what little positives Patty brings to the table are determined to be useless — for instance, if Patty says “She let me copy her biology notes in 8th grade so I wouldn’t flunk the mid-term”, the jury might decide “Well, that was nice of her, but it isn’t worth sparing the death penalty” — but that is nowhere near any rational reason for issuing death threats. Claiming witness intimidation and death threats makes for good drama in Lifetime Made-for-TV Movies, but other than that, what is the point? Can someone please explain? (If this has been covered, please advise. I’ve been off-line since early afternoon, and haven’t had time to read all the comments.)

        donchais, I understand Patty is lying, the only intimidation she has experienced is the intimidation ANY of us would feel if we were about to be cross-examined by Juan. However, how could Wurmi stand up in court and say his witness was so afraid for her life she couldn’t testify? This goes beyond a “vigorous defense” into flat out lying. Is it because he couched it in terms of “She FEELS intimidated” instead of “She IS”? Is it because he used the word “contemporaneously”?

    Hi guys! just reading a bit before I say for the first time……OT…..I’ve been frantically trying to reach the many cousins, and Aunts and uncles I have all around the Oklahoma area…. Finally found they are all safe, but one of my cousins lost his home…..out of the more than dozen cousins I have there, thank God it was only his house! But they are still under bad weather situations as we speak…Most of them were 3 miles from tornadoes last night, and closer today.. as one home was destroyed…I can’t remember which town he is in, but close to Moore….They are currently in storm shelters probably for the rest of the night as that area is being pummeled right now! Just send out prayers which I know my peeps will do for us. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers! Thanks………..love u sandboxers!! TTFN!!!

    • Janeto

        Had no power for 13 days and no phone for 16…brother so freaked he sent police to check on me…neighbors loved that emergency arrival…my sil’s, sis lived at Lido Beach Condos that got hit with 32 foot waves and still has several months to wait before it’s all rebuilt…others I know lost everything…never to be rebuilt…gonna be a long, long time before the east coast settles. Point is, it’s all the folks like you that carried us through. Possessions can be replaced, lives cannot…much like what Travis’ family must be missing today!

      Yes, he’s fine. He must have gotten into something during the night. It could have been anything or maybe he was just as pissed at JA as I was.

      As for the rumble, it was a bunch of stalker/tweeters who were giving her a hard time. She even changed her picture from a newspaper photo showing JA guilty 1st degree to her current photo to try and appease them. They were probably riffraff from the JA is Innocent site.

      05/20/2013 at 11:50 pm

      As far as AVL though, she was dissed after her testimony, right? So just because people came after her then, it wasn’t really the prosecutors fault. ( at least how I see it). And if you are scared it will happen to you because it happened to someone else, would still not be the prosecutors fault. Public might hate you because they think you are sticking up for a murderer (patti) or because you are lying and just wrong (AVL). Non-related. And even if the jury was sequestered, am I right that the public would still have seen the trial and public opinion would be the same? Nobody could have seen the outcry over AVL’s testimony in advance. it wasnt a planned thing. Had nothing to do with the jury, in my head. And as many have said Patti knows public opinion! So why agree in the first place??!! But I’m not the smartest twig on the tree!

      Very interesting, Darryl mentions that he left Jodi, which contradicts what Jodi said about it being mutual. I bet he is so embarrassed over this.

      • Dewey

        even more so because he has a child who is probably affected by his involvement in this mess.

      • Kristy
        05/20/2013 at 9:14 pm

        Totally. He’s got to be in Dutch with the ex wife. She has his custody by the cojones I’d think. I think Jodi’s team realized that he would look like a total predator given how old he looks as opposed to Jodi’s schoolgirl look, and the fact that he bought her new boobs.

      • Janna
        05/20/2013 at 9:17 pm

      • truejustice
        05/21/2013 at 1:01 am

        I agree he would look bad . Darryl is 52 , he is 20 years older than ja !! They met when she was 19 (barely legal) and supposedly didn’t start dating till she was 21. What would you think about a 41 year man who is having sex with you 21 year old daughter . (21 and 41 is alot different than 35 and 45 … imo)

        This guy is gross – and despite what he thinks .. she WAS taking him for a ride.

    • Kristy
      05/20/2013 at 9:23 pm

      I tend to think the defense may have rethought the decision for both witnesses in their new strategy. I got a little creeped out that he looked so much older than Jodi, which he is, and that he bought her new boobs. I bet that fact wasn’t missed by Wilmett during his testiphony.

      Good catch Janna. Interesting interview and notice how he said she did not say that she was going to Mesa but he testiphoned originally during cross that she did. I still think she got the gas cans for the dvd player that she sold him from the ‘burglary’ at the g/p’s house.

    Well, after watching the vid of today’s court procedings I am 100% convinced that today was a completely planned, false “hissy fit”! Not one member of the Arias entourage looked remotely “surprised” when The Wurm gave his motions, and announced that there would be no witnesses- combined with the look on JA’s face that was “yeah, uh huh, yup…take that Alexanders and Juan”! Total “Hail Mary Pass theatrics”!!!!!

    Tomorrow…. Well, it will be interesting.

    • HJ Madison
      05/20/2013 at 10:15 pm

      • Family of Law
        05/21/2013 at 12:01 am

        Don’t get me wrong…. The judge WAS blindsided. But the DT, JA, and her family, IMO had this all very premeditated over the weekend. Not one iota of surprise registered on any of the Arias faces, compared to the others in the gallery, that all looked as dumbfounded as us. The judge was PISSED, her face was very flushed. I think the DT knew they couldn’t call PP (she did not refuse for fear of her life being taken, she withdrew because Juan made it abundantly clear that she broke the law re: monies garnered from selling photos to HLN, etc, and failed to report income, etc) What was she going to do? Take the stand and plea the 5th in front of the jury? No way would the DT allow that. Darryl was already pointless. The “smoke and mirrors” claims of ‘death threats’ was just for mistrial sake- otherwise they could have requested no cameras and a sealed hearing.

    • Kristy
      05/20/2013 at 10:19 pm

      Well the DT knew the migraine story was played out. The came up with yet another delay tactic. It’s time the judge said enough is enough, lets move this along.

      • HJ Madison
        05/20/2013 at 10:34 pm

        But why bother! Why didn’t the judge give them an hour or two to get their act together today and then forge ahead. Every time she gives the DT a break, something more happens! So frustrating!

    Ok stupid question alert and if already asked/answered disregard. I understand that IF mitigation witnesses, especially if there were alot, were “intimidated” that would be reason for mistrial, whatever. But seriously, legally speaking, what if there are only two? There are only two called, they back out b/c they can’t handle pros. Questioning. That us really not legally anyone’s fault is it? I mean, if the defense can only find TWO people from a 32 year old life to speak, or choose not to call any others (parents, family) how can that be reason for mistrial? Can it legally be presented that just point blank there is no one to testify for a person? I know that seems prejudice to the defendant but if there is no one there is no one. So even if nobody testifies on her behalf does that mean automatically she didnt get a fair sentencing?
    Secondly, Can Juan just not question the witnesses? I mean, at this point is it that important? Would two people really change the jurors mind? Why not just say to hell with it, ya’ll go ahead and tell how wonderful you think she is. Doesn’t matter!! Lets just get this trial over! And lastly, does the jury know all going on? Do they know there are only two to testify and why they aren’t? Don’t they question why no one else is speaking up for her? If so, again, it doesn’t matter! They know she doesn’t have anybody that thinks she has redeeming qualities!

      Debra: Lots of questions …

      The jury was told on Thursday during the DT’s opening statement that there would be 2 people to offer testimony for Jodi. The jury does not know anything about todays craziness. However, if we continue, the judge will give them an instruction …. something like the witnesses that planned to speak are not available.

      Juan could decide to ask nothing. But, knowing what a zealous advocate he is, hard to hold him back, especially given the credibility of these witnesses. Juan wants to ensure the State gets the DP for Jodi. That has been his goal all along and since the Alexander’s are in agreement, Juan will do his best.

      Now your bigger question. Jodi has a right to show mitigation, as little as there maybe. The judge did offer today to “seal” the proceedings and allow the witnesses to testify only in front of the jury, the DT and the Prosecution, but the DT would have none of it!

      Hope that helps.

        I hope this doesn’t mean that it could come back based on ALVs issues with folks dissing her to be a reason the jury should have been sequestered. Although that wouldn’t have mattered with ALV. I hope this doesn’t open a door for DT appeal.

        05/20/2013 at 11:22 pm

        Thank you! You did help! I do understand, then don’t sometimes. It’s just very frustrating. I just think at this point, even if I didn’t know her craziness, that even if the Morman pastor spoke up and said she was a good girl, I’d be like “whatever!! DP!!” It would almost be humorous if after these witnesses spoke Juan said “no questions” just to shock Jodi and the defense and throw in their face how unimportant their view is. I truly understand it is her right to mitigation, I guess I don’t quite understand though how it is legally her defense team or prosecutors fault if there is no witness. I mean, I wouldn’t even lie for her for a million bucks. I just hope the law realizes that the fact there is nobody is of no fault of justice, it is just further proof of the type of person Jodi is. I keep hoping though, as has been said, that all this delay as frustrating as it is, pretty much guarantees no appeal. All bases covered. Again, thanks for the answers!!

        Kristy: Not to worry! Unless there is some big issue we don’t know about, like it can be proven there was jury misconduct, the important part of this trial is done. She is and always will be convicted of 1st degree murder. This part of the trial …. the penalty part …. well maybe. But, the judge gave them an acceptable alternative today which they refused. As for LaLa, her credibity was shot when she testified. Furthermore, the only thing she can testify to now is Jodi was a victim of abuse and the jury already said they did not believe any of that with their verdict. LaLa may “say” she did not testify in the mitigation phase because of death threats, but in reality, the DT would never have put her on now anyway. She turned out to be one big expensive dud for Jodi.

      It sounds like the main issue is that she’s on welfare and didn’t report the income. I’m sure her drug use issues also came into play. Juan would most likely have asked her if she made $$$ off of the 48 hours interview as well as selling the photos that she may not have reported.

      Darryl is another story. I think at his age now, he looks pretty old to be dating the DTs version of clean cut easily sexually manipulated Jodi they’ve tried to portray. It’s kind of sleeve to think that guy bought her boobs, and somehow he’s clean cut, but younger Travis was the predator.

      Total ploy on DT part to not have an ex testiphy when his testimony helped convict Jodi.

  133. Kristi
    05/20/2013 at 11:20 pm

    I agree with the other Kristy that the reasons for each witness not testifying are unrelated to each other. I think Jodi is the reason no one is testifying for her. She refuses to allow anyone to disparage her, and the only possible way to get mercy at this point is to just say look she’s a mess, she’s sick, we should have put her in a psych hospital long ago and we didn’t. But Jodi thinks she is the most brilliant, beautiful genius in the world and won’t tolerate less. The DT is in a bad spot, they have a client who won’t take their advice and probably browbeats them constantly, but they are still legally bound to represent her. IMHO, today was no DT strategy. It was an exploding clusterf*#k, caused by Jodi and Patty, and the DT was just grasping. I think Jodi planned something ridiculous and they are trying to talk her out of it.

    OK .. According to NBC . Patty actually e-mailed them to explain why she did not testify. I hope someone sends this to jm or he sees it so he can submit to the court .

    NBC: The potential witness, Patricia Womack, is a childhood friend of Arias who planned to testify about Arias’ abusive childhood. Besides the threats, she said that her heart went out to the family of Travis Alexander, whom Arias was convicted of killing.
    “I couldn’t do it,” she told NBC News in an email. “I feel there is so much good in Jodi to be saved but then also someone’s dear life was taken.”.

      Sadly, Jodi hadn’t changed her testimony when Patti first participated in the 48 hours deal. Just like Jodi testified at first that no gun belonged to Travis. Jodi didn’t realize how she’d want her defense to work prior to the 48 hours interview.

    After listening to Nurmi whine about Juan today, it’s no wonder that Jodi accused Juan of being shady during her interview. And BTW, how funny is it that she said during that accursed interview, “I used to have a lot of respect for Juan before this trial.” Right! You respected the guy who wanted the DP for you from the beginning. And that would have been even before the trial started. She is so full of BS. I don’t know how she can say stupid things like that without laughing out loud. I just hope her belief that she’s smarter than everyone does her in tomorrow (or whenever she finally speaks.)

      Well something is up with him taking the stand again. When you listen to his interview he did there are inconsistencies there. He states that everything was hunky dorey and lovie dovie those years he was with JA and he had no problems with her. He’s making it sound like all her problems started when she got involved with PPL and Mormonism. However, when La Toilet was on the stand she indicated that Brewer had said that JA had crying fits that were unexplained and she would go off to her room and close herself up. Then hours later she’d come out as if nothing happened. He was having problems with her as well but now won’t admit it. We think he’s whipped…….and worthless to her defense!! The DT probably figured that out eventually. We’re not mad at you….we respect everyone’s opinion, however Chris Stark does a LOT of research before she posts anything so we wouldn’t put it past her that she probably found something out there on the internet about Brewer’s past. She’s comes up right 99.99% of the time.

        Hi Cici circle, I love you gals. I agree what you are saying but I do not agree with Chrisstarks drunk pothead critic. Drunk pothead has nothing to do with Jodi’s trial. That accusation can hurt his son. Chrisstark makes mistakes and fixes them and humbly admits. Im not saying she is wrong about drunk/pothead Darryll, but are his weaknesses relative if he does not lie under oath? he is whipped by jodi probably because he feels sorry or responsible in some way. Chrisstark is wrong on a few minor things, for example, she is hung up on the missing mattress pad. It is clearly on the bed in the crime screen pics. There are several other things she reports that are hypothesis and not facts. Sometimes chrisstark (a paid researcher) gets ahead of fact proofing, but she is a good researcher like so many others. Especially the folks here that do not get paid and are more informative than any 48 hour program can produce. Cbs should interview some of the sandbox regulars including you Cici circle.

I think Chris Stark is just pointing out what JM was going to point out if Darryl did testify any prior bad acts even right down to not paying a parking ticket will be discovered.

    She is so defiant and smug. Huge case of entitlement disease!! She enjoys how this has affected lives and destroyed so many people. She thrives on that mentality.. if she’s suffering, ev1 suffers. She is one sick twisted waste of skin.

    Her attitude evokes me to the core. It’s all about Good VS Evil. I find myself saying awful things.. lol hot poker, attacking dogs… things that I know my heart would never really allow me to do. It’s just that I want her to GET IT. I want her to ACKNOWLEDGE her mistake. I want her to OWN it.

    When she does get on the stand, she will again ask for the DP, but then make those jurors feel like it’s THEIR fault they want to put her to death.

    I used to have sympathy for JA’s family but seeing her sister wear that “Survivor” shirt in court makes me sick. And they are selling those shirts claiming part of the proceeds go to the women’s shelter of Long Beach.

      he was very guarded during his testimony. i think she is blackmailing him and is holding something over him, including perhaps his aiding and abetting her as well as historical things. he doesn’t want to lose his son so he’s going to cave into her crap. i believe i saw somewhere that they had a body language expert state that he was hiding something during his testimony. he ‘forgot’ a lot of things even though juan clearly had information from earlier interviews but he didn’t concede on those points on the stand.

    Actually I believe there probably have been death threats. Some people on both sides of this case have acted badly. Personally I think the Judge needs to stop the penalty phase and reschedule it for a few months from now. At that time the cameras need to be shut off.

    Let me say I think this case deserves the DP. But I want JA to have a fair sentencing hearing and if witnesses have been intimidated, that’s not fair.

      So what is he saying, that The Secret turned her into a psychopath? 😊

        And Prepaid Legal … I guess … I am anxious for Syntara to see it and get her take.

    Does anyone have a speculation as to what could have been said to the judge in chambers that made her adjourn for the day? In just baffled as to what could have possibly been said that the judge would have found it was necessary to do that.

    • Lisa M
      05/21/2013 at 12:33 am

      Silly me, I forgot The judge is a puppet on a strong being manipulated by the DT. I still think its atrocious that this has happened over and over and over. It is outrageous. This judge should be reprimanded. The tax payers are paying for this trial. Doesn’t she have any accountability to anyone? Can’t she say no to this DT ever? I’ve never seen snything like this. The DT gets rewarded for their bad behavior.

    • HJ Madison
      05/21/2013 at 12:35 am

      I think she felt the DT may have over-reacted. And I thought she was mad. I guess better to pull the plug … I don’t know….

        I also think the judge was ticked off. they probably went in there and said well there is no way the ho is ready to talk now, she was prepared for you to address the issue of Juans’ intimidating qualities.. she needs more time to prepare!! 🙄

    Anniefreeze : Chrisstark is wrong on a few minor things, for example, she is hung up on the missing mattress pad. It is clearly on the bed in the crime screen pics.

    it is not the mattress pad that is missing. it’s the brown comforter. I think she wrapped up the bloody items that she took with her in said comforter. …

      Hi moon, The brown comforter is really a douvet cover that was exhibited in the trial from the contents of the dryer. Chris was hung up on that brown duvet until she was corrected. A different matter, she keeps mentioning the mattress pad, I just saw her inquiry in her favorites yesterday. Not an important matter in the scheme of things.

      • Moon
        05/21/2013 at 1:26 am

        ooohhh well then … hmmm
        i thought the douvet cover was one thing, but i thought (and yeah, i’m prob wrong) that the comforter/bedspread was a separate item.
        but yes, ur right….in the scheme of things…..
        cheers!

    Thank you Cici for the Darryll interview. This interview confirmed my instinct. He said she should not be let out into society, but he does not believe in DP. He is logical. My instincts stay about him. Chrisstark should stop bashing him. I don’t believe in bullying. I believe he is filled with compassion not hate. I’m a softy.

  152. Anniefreeze
    05/21/2013 at 1:00 am

    Ok here goes. Sorry to swim upstream, i do not want JA to get DP, only because I’m an accountant and it will cost the state millions of dollars to house her for years. It cost death row inmates $90,000.00 per year, plus all the appeals. additionally, it will hold up the Alexander’s healing every time there is any appeal activity. Oh one more thing, there has not been a woman executed since 1930. So her appeals will probably come true in 20 or 30 years. I am hoping for lwop so Travis’s family can rest.

    • HJ Madison
      05/21/2013 at 1:08 am

      You are not alone. If I knew she would have the same treatment as those living on Death Row, I would be fine with LWOP. She has proven to be a cruel manipulator and like MMD says, won’t be long before she is running the prison if she is in the general population.

      • Anniefreeze
        05/21/2013 at 1:11 am

        Hi hj, If she is in maximum it is almost like death row from what I read on the prison website. But I could be wrong.

      • Moon
        05/21/2013 at 1:31 am

        I agree that LWOP would be fine, IF as you stated above!

        also, because the needle is too easy of an out for her. i want her to suffer . i don’t want her to be able to appeal over and over . i want her to just go away. lock her up and throw away the key and let her rot, just as she left Travis to rot.

    • Anniefreeze
      05/21/2013 at 1:18 am

      Efficiency and costs are partly to blame for my opinion.
      I am a softy, im awake now at 1:14am because we caught a ground hog in the have a heart trap and i can gear him rattling the cage. im a softy. Plus when my dad shot a moose I cried for days. I’m a softy. Ok I said it enough. 🐝

      • nyccowgirl
        05/21/2013 at 2:00 am

        she wouldn’t necessarily be in maximum. there was an interview with the sheriff or someone in the prison, and they said most likely she would only be in maximum for a short time. the levels decrease based on good behavior and given her record in last 5 years, in no time, she would be in general population manipulating everyone else.

      • MMD
        05/21/2013 at 8:38 am

        It’s great that you’re a softy. It’s a good quality to have Annie 😀 As for the moose, I would feel the same way. That’s why I’m almost a vegetarian (still can’t give up my seafood but eat it rarely)

      The way our justice system works, the Alexander Family will never be allowed to rest. They will be forced to stay vigilent the rest of Jodi’s life lest the laws be softened or whatever and she be set free. The threat is always there. And there is no prison sentence harsh like Death Row. Prison Wardens and guards want the prisoners to be happy so they don’t fight or do bad things. I wish you all could read the letters my husband writes to my boys from prison. He is in a felon sexual offender maximum security status. He makes prison sound better than the outside world. No joke. The Alexander’s will never be able to rest or have peace. So why not allow them to at least try to obtain the justice they feel they deserve and is currently legal in AZ. The death penalty!

      • Anniefreeze
        05/21/2013 at 2:31 am

        You make a very good argument and you know the system Chrystal. If she gets DP she will probably not really get death in the end, look at the history. How can the Alexander family ever get a reprieve? Really they seemed defeated anyway you look at it.

    They are truly such wonderful people!!!

    From the Alexanders regarding donations:

    We wanted to thank all of those who have been there for our family during this tumultuous time. Many of you don’t know this, but before you offered to help us, we were completely stressed out. We knew we needed to be away from our homes, jobs/businesses, and families to support Travis, but didn’t know how we were going to do it financially. We were just going to make it work. We had gone through savings accounts, maxed out credit cards and borrowed money. So you can imagine when, like angels from heaven, you all came to our rescue.

    We want to especially thank the. Admins of this page, Elna and Nora, who have put in so many hours supporting, protecting, and helping Travis and our family. They have done this in spite of personal attacks on their character, motives and integrity. We are sorry for what you have endured, but thank you for being strong!

    We don’t have the words to express our gratitude for all of you and what you have done for us. You have changed our lives, and how we see the world. Good people definitely out number the bad. We wanted to thank you all publicly for what you have done in making this whole experience more bearable, and much less stressful. We know that many of the donations came at a great sacrifice, and you have touched our hearts and blessed our lives and how we see the world. Good people definitely out number the bad.

    We wanted to thank you all publicly for what you have done in making this whole experience more bearable, and much less stressful. We know that many of the donations came at a great sacrifice, and you have touched our hearts and blessed our lives forever. We wanted to thank you, and let you know that we feel that we will be financially covered for the duration of the trial.

    If you are interested in continuing the legacy of our brother, Travis Victor Alexander, please feel free to donate to his Legacy fund. The fund was set up to aide us while at the trial with all leftover monies going into his Legacy Fund at travisalexanderfund.com (it is still under construction, so please be patient with us:) which supports:
    -Leadership programs for youth
    -Aide Families that are Victims of Crime
    -Animal Rescue
    -Green Projects

    While Travis must remain our angel in heaven, you are our angels on earth. We will love and appreciate you forever!

    With Love and Gratitude,

    The Alexander Family

    Hi HJ! Thanks for highlighting the CiCi’s Darryl video! Woah! That was great!!! That poor JA koolaid drinker! He is still in love with her! It took me awhile to make it through all of the segments, because my iPad kept dropping the feed, ugh! But it was worth the angst! What’s with his lizard tongue? He and JA seem to have more than gas cans and changing stories in common… Lol!

    What do you make of his opinion that JA made a dramatic change in the year after their breakup? I thought I recalled LaLa saying that when JA lived with Darryl, she would become highly emotional, then lock herself in her bedroom, then appear sometime later like nothing ever happened? Or am I remembering that testimony wrong?

    (Brought over from: NancyB) 

    Soooo proud of Soldier Boy! What things has the therapist done with him??? I am truly so interested to know. What a doll baby – that he did better during the last thunder clapper!
    You are the salt of the earth FOL. How many people would go to this extent to soothe his mind after the gigantic amount of abuse and trauma that he has suffered through, he truly needs it. I adore you and that you have taken this beautiful soul in but you are a rare bird to go to the next level & expense for therapy.
    How exciting that he tolerated the saddle. I so wish I could see a picture of him and the Mama cat. I have a pic that I took of a few of my cat clan last week that I wish that I could share. It’ a pic of 3 of the teenagers all cuddled up & sleeping in a big planted pot!!! I laughed so hard when I saw that – they had never done that before
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Hi Nance! Thank you for this- I never got a chance to respond on the previous thread, things move pretty fast here on CJF!

    Big storms brewing here tonight, with thunder and lightning, so I’m hanging out down at the barn, likely sleeping here… He is doing so much better, but needs company (and music, I’m teaching him to appreciate Coldplay tonight, I needed a break from Mozart, no offense to Wolfgang, lol). The 1st therapist we hired was a big mistake, a real charlatan! We now have a wonderful lady, we were blessed that she agreed travel out to us to work with Soldier Boy! She is using a variety of therapies, primarily using Arcequine (electric pulse therapy). It has made a tremendous difference in wound healing as well as his reactions to sudden movements and noise. She also practices therapeutic massage, and she has taught all of us several “calming techniques”. Acupuncture as well- she is definitely applying a holistic approach, and we are very impressed and grateful. Initially, my burly barn manager gave me quite a bunch of grief for hiring a “mumbo jumbo lady”, but he’s been pretty quiet lately! Lol! As for the expense… Well, I remind the hubby (often) how lucky he is that I truly detest diamonds!

    I LOVE that your kitty “teenagers” all cuddled together! How cute that pic on the planter must be! Too funny! Bless your heart for taking care of them!!!! Ahhh, these creatures add so much to our lives 🙂

    Morning all… re: the Darryl interview

    I’m not buying it. People don’t suddenly go from being normal, happy, productive, hard working, nurturing, loving individuals to lazy, conniving, vindictive, obsessed, psychotic murderers. He came on too strong for me with the positive description of her. Her own parents told the truth about her and there were red flags over the years.

    When he said she changed after PPL and the Mormon church, I felt that was a knock on Travis. Not once did he say she should pay for being such a monster or acknowledge the Alexander family or the many lives she ruined. Saying she should not be released to society because she needs help was saying its not her fault. The ongoing theme of her defense.

    I didn’t care for him or his creepy tone when he spoke. Where was the emotion in his voice? Theres more to this than meets the eye. My opinion.

    • MMD
      05/21/2013 at 9:21 am

      Morning Dewey 😀 agree with everything you said and his slithering tongue totally grossed me out. Plus he lied. He said she had not said she was going to Mesa and he testiphoned that she told him on cross.

      Besides the whiny bit about the cost to him, would the defense be paying and arranging for his travel, accommodations, etc.?

      • Dewey
        05/21/2013 at 9:33 am

        I dont know who would pay for cost but the state is not the one holding up this trial! Its not their fault that he has been inconvenienced with all of the back and forth travel, she’s the one doing this not Juan or the judge or the state or PPL or the mormons or anyone else he wants to blame!

        I thought the same thing. Calling major bullshittery on that whole interview. Of course, his expenses would be covered. I’m also wondering if maybe Patricia W had been promised compensation for her time…

  160. 05/21/2013 at 8:49 am

    Good morning everyone! I was wondering if anyone has seen Wobo’s aunt in the court room? And has her dad and grandmother been back yet? I haven’t really seen anyone on Jodi’s side except her mother and Donoman and Dono got the boot. People are dropping like flies on that side!

    And one other thing…did they say why Daryl didn’t testify? I know they said why Patti didn’t but I didn’t hear anything about D. I’m sorry if this has been discussed and answered…i have to catch up on this entire page and half of the last one lol…I’m slacking 😦

    I’m half-expecting another day off so that the DT can have their client evaluated and do everything they can to keep her from elocutin’.
