    from the docket:

    Is there any other reason besides EJ being a wacko, as to why she doesnt want to attend her own trial? She is a very smart girl (IMO) why wouldnt she want to have her day in court. Is it because there will be actual evidence that will put her away for good? I dont get it.

    exactly, she knows she is guilty and she can't put this off any longer. i bet she is also on suicide watch.

    I suspect that she figures that even if she's found guilty on all counts, that her sentence will amount to time served. If that's the case, I'm sure she thinks there's no point to having a trial if she gets released at the end, so why bother to show up.

    Does this mean that one of the messages to TS are not going to be entered as evidence? The legalese is so confusing

    BBM: I don't get this. I don't know how this is legal, especially if someone is considered innocent until proven guilty. I'm not saying I think she's innocent (I don't) but how is this constitutional? Can't she waive her right to be there?

    I am also pretty confused by this, and not too crazy about it. I wonder if we can ask one of our verified lawyers to chime in?
