    Q: Was Jodi mentally ill prior to the murder?
    DeMarte: She has Borderline Personality Disorder. That doesn't come out of the blue, it happens over time.

    Q: Without having training in DAPS testing, what is your basis for believing Dr. Geffner administered it incorrectly?
    DeMarte: It's a self-reporting test. Don't need extensive training in it. Any psychologist could have picked out his errors.

    Q: How many tests are there to diagnose Borderline Personality Disorder and PTSD?
    DeMarte: There are hundreds of tests. Some are more popular than others.

    Q: How many did you personally administer?
    DeMarte: I administered 4 tests: MMPI, RAP, TSI and WAIS.

    Q: How many years experience do you have in treating domestic violence victims?
    DeMarte: Since 2004

    Q: How many years do you have in treating sexual abuse victims?
    DeMarte: Since 2004

    Q: Do these fields require certification?
    DeMarte: Yes for a clinical psychologist. To treat PTSD or victims of domestic violence, there's no certification out there.

    Q: When you were treating patients from 2004-2008, was it by yourself or with another psychologist?
    DeMarte: Before licensed I practiced under the license of another psychologist but I met alone with the patient. This is standard.

    Q: Do you feel that the knowledge of a sexual assault is as damaging as having a memory of it?
    DeMarte: It can manifest into PTSD but you have to have the symptoms. It wouldn't be PTSD without memory.

    Q: Can the body have reactions to certain stimuli that trigger feelings to suppressed memories?
    DeMarte: Yes, there could be a physiological reaction.

    Q: In one of the communications between Jodi and Travis, Travis says Jodi can have all of his passwords. Is that still considered unwanted intrusive behavior?
    DeMarte: No, not when they exchanged information. As time went on, it was clear that Travis took away the permission.

    Q: There were some communications between Travis and other women where he complained that Jodi wouldn't leave him alone. Were these people, like Michele Lowry, aware he was still seeing Jodi?
    DeMarte: Not to the extent it was sexual.

    Q: How long in total did Jodi work at the Purple Plum both times?
    DeMarte: I would need to look at my notes.....I'm not sure.

    Q: Did you monitor her at all after the four times you met with her?
    DeMarte: No.

    Q: How far back did your forensic evaluation go and were all the records were available?
    DeMarte: All the records pertaining to her were made available to me, as far as I know. My evaluation went back to her childhood.

    Q: Do you consider Borderline Personality Disorder a mental illness or a psychological disorder and why?
    DeMarte: It's a psychological disorder which has the same meaning as mental illness.

    Q: How does dissociation play into Borderline Personality Disorder?
    DeMarte: It's a technique to distance oneself from an environment that is anxiety provoking. One of the symptoms of BPD is dissociation and paranoia.

    I am not disturbed at all by the juror questions. Nor by DM's responses.

    We are here for the pursuit of truth and justice, are we not? I believe DeMarte to be highly qualified in her field and very professional in her testimony. There may be a fact or two that I did not like hearing as it made JA sound more human but, really, I can live with that because it is truly refreshing to see a witness who does not mince words, does not follow a script, and does not say only what she thinks people want to hear. DeMarte says what she believes to be true, period. If her testimony made a juror or two think--really think--about their task at hand, so be it.

    I would rather have the murderer sentenced to Life through proper means than sentenced to Death because a prosecution witness was dishonest or biased in their testimony. After all, wasn't such bias our biggest gripe about the defense witnesses?

    Arias will never get out of prison alive. At the end of it all, that will be the only thing that matters.

    #JodiArias questioning of jury one by one in chambers seems more ominous than jury scheduling, usually related to improperly info/behavior.
    ------------

    Didn't this happen during the first trial too?

    Yes, it was usually to ask if the jury heard/saw something they weren't supposed to see and once related to juror 5's joke about chairs.

    They wanted to know if any juror has heard a/b Det. Flores and his loss. I was wondering when the jury wd b questioned a/b it. #JodiArias
    -------------------

    Not sure if this is true or not.

    So.....17 questions.

    Only 1 question relating to sexual abuse (PTSD-related) and it sounded sceptical. No questions about physical abuse by Travis. Or anyone else.

    Only a couple questions about the factual narrative...Purple Plum, passwords, telling of intimacy.

    One odd question about triggers and stimuli.

    And the remainder about qualifications, tests, etc.

    Sound pretty harmless.
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.

    I did read that tweet, but I believe that is her opinion of why they were called in and questioned.

    Why would the jurors be asked that? I would think in the asking JSS would be telling, and can't see why she would bring it to their attention.

    And so what anyway if they've heard.

    The odd questions about triggers and stimuli would be related to PTSD. My son and nephew have PTSD from the Iraq War and their trigger is casinos because of the large crowds and the noise from the slot machines.

    You're right, and her confidence in her assumption is how misinformation gets spread. I wish people would think before they tweet.
