    Looking forward to all the updates! Thanks to all in advance!


    Where is Baby Gabriel?? I'm hoping this trial will bring investigators one step closer to finding him. It appears EJ has some anger issues. Maybe she'll get angry enough to spout out where Baby Gabriel is during the trial? One can wish.

    In the meantime, let's git-r-done!

    Elizabeth Johnson's lawyer gives insight into trial

    By Elizabeth Erwin


    Thursday marks the first day in the kidnapping and custodial interference trial of Elizabeth Johnson. Johnson ran off with her son, Gabriel, just after Christmas 2009. Gabriel hasn't been seen since...

    ..."We all had a goal of getting a jury that was fair. And I think we accomplished that," Victor said...

    ..."Look, there may be issues that come up in this case that make them upset with Elizabeth Johnson, they may not like Elizabeth Johnson. I got all of them to agree to put that aside and decide this case based on the fact and evidence provided in court," Victor said.

    Speaking of the facts, Victor said Johnson's missing baby isn't relevant.

    "That's the issue everybody wants to know, where's baby Gabriel. That's not going to be resolved in this case. This case is not about that issue," Victor said...

    Thanks for the article. If it wasn't so sad, I'd be laughing.

    If it's not the issue, we wouldn't be here, EJ wouldn't be on trial and Baby Gabriel would be safe in the arms of those who love him.

    This case is a no brainer.

    Mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson goes to trial Thursday

    PHOENIX -- Missing baby Gabriel Johnson vanished nearly three years ago, and Thursday his mother goes to trial on charges relating to his disappearance...


    ...Others scheduled to take the stand include Johnson's former roommate, Gabriel's grandfather, Frank McQueary, and others who knew her.

    Also, police officers from Florida, where Johnson was found and arrested in early 2010, and Texas, where Gabriel was last scene, will appear before the jury. The woman who babysat Gabriel in a San Antonio hotel before he disappeared is also on the witness list...

    ...Johnson's attorney, Marc Victor, doesn't know if his client will take the stand.

    "In the end, it's up to Elizabeth Johnson," Victor told 3TV.

    "With her history of instability in the case, it's anyone's guess whether she can hold it together on any given day," said attorney Jason Lamm, who's followed the case from the start.

    Johnson has fired several teams of attorneys, written critical letters to judges, and refused to even show up to court hearings at times. Her attorney says that's all in the past.

    "Elizabeth is anxious to get this case to trial and have a jury hear her side," Victor said...

    I'm so ready for this trial to get going!

    Very disappointed in IS for not even giving updates, though. At the beginning of the summer they were advertising that they would be live at this trial. I guess they changed their minds.......

    Morning everybody-

    My chakras are humming!

    My barf bag is conveniently placed for use during Marc "Gabriel Who?" Victor's opening remarks.

    And truly happy to share this day with all of you!

    Mornin' to all of Gabriel's Angel's here at WS! Can someone tell me what time this shindig gets underway. I have classes today but I'm hoping with the time difference I'll be able to catch the trial. It's been a long time coming and I don't want to miss a thing!

    Looks to me like the trial is set to begin at 10:30 mountain time every day. So, 11:30 central, 12:30 eastern.

    I've been to several sites and they are all broadcasting yesterday's newscasts about this trial. Maybe things are running late -- which would not be surprising to me.

    Anybody out there have it really & truly in the courtroom today??


    All posts, unless attributed, are "just my humble opinion," and they are to remain here in Websleuths and are not to be used elsewhere. Thank you.

    Several days ago, the IS TH said that they would broadcast this whole trial "at a later date." They are gonna continue to show the Hemy Neuman trial and will follow that with the Johnson DUI - Vehicular Homicide trial. So it won't be IS with it live today -- unless something drastic has happened. I have been half-watching IS, and I haven't heard it mentioned today either, Shelby1. Grrrrrr.

    Hi Shelby- AZ doesn't adjust for daylight savings- add three hours for east coast. So, 12:30 central, 1:30 eastern.
