    Well, the defense certainly put up a fight so I can't imagine that the DP can be overturned on appeal. Let's hope the state of Conn. doesn't waste too much time and money on SH. I'm anti-DP but this is a case that screamed for it. May this bring some closure and comfort to Dr. Petit and the surviving family and friends.
    all my comments are just my opinion. jmho. moo. etc. etc.

    Thank God the justice system came through...

    My thoughts are always with Mr. Petit. Blessings.

    Thanks, McDraw. I thought I was odd for feeling that way. I know a lot of people personally that have never sat on a jury and they are all soooo sure of how "simple, and cut and dried" coming up with a verdict is -when it's not!

    ADD: I just have to add this in to get it off my chest - as obvious as it is if someone is guilty, our legal system makes sure juries walk through a process, proceedures, steps, legalities, paperwork, etc. It is draining and serious and weighs heavy on your mind. JMO

    The average time on death row in Ct can be up to 20 years! The last two executions occurred "rapidly" only because the criminals asked that all appeals be STOPPED and even THEN the defense lawyers within the state took up the cause to continue the appeal process!

    Roughly - do you recall what "rapidly" meant? (3 yrs? 10 yrs?..)

    I just want to say that I broke into tears when I saw this news. I remember listening to SP sentencing and broke into tears then too.

    I followed Laci's case, word for word, even reading the actual transcripts days after they happened and KNEW from early on he was guilty. But it's so heartbreaking when it's over. There are no winners in cases such as this. Death on both sides.

    JMHO

    From the reaction of the jurors: this was NOT an easy decision!


    Contrary to the chat on the street, it was not cut & dry, these folks are torn UP! lots of tears, deep sighs and closed eyes but huge relief after being polled BUT no changes! And folks seem to be FALLING back into the chairs in relief after being questioned.

    MEMORY only: Michael Ross' execution took 12 years (his crime: multiple deaths of minor females)

    Judge chose to speak with jury in public: thanking them and reminding them that they need not talk to anybody and can be escorted out secretely if they wish, acknowledges that they saw things that they never thought they'd ever see and saw depravity.


    Welcome to my world of seeing depravity of human actions BUT at least I'm prepared for it, thankfully HOPEFULLY these folks will be restored by the knowledge that they achieved justice for a family

    Joypath, that is surprising. Not sure why sentencing wouldnt happen today. since there is no presentence investigation/report necessary, this is a simple matter and takes only a few minutes. Sure seems like a waste of logistical resources to have to bring him back in a month for sentencing then.

    Okay folks: SA chatting with media, family et al getting ready to leave, Dr. Petit did promise that he would speak AFTER the verdict so perhaps he will chat outside (many TV mics staged at courthouse steps!) and I've got a full afternoon at the office! Be well all!

    TOTALLY agree! going to "snoop" and try to get some inside dope if possible...but not call in too many favors for this piece of fecal material, if you get my drift!
