    lol yep. my step kids mother's second lawyer dumped her case too because she was losing so bad and making herself look so bad and she refused to settle on anything.

    lawyers do care about their pro rep.

    Vigil outside courthouse May 9 (the date the trial date will be set) calling for no more continuances.

    [FONT=&quot]The community members, family and friends of both families want the trial date set, no more continuances and this is one public message they want Judge Kaleb Cockrum and the Humboldt Superior Court to hear.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]If there are any more delays, many people have expressed an interest in starting a petition.[/FONT]

    I do hope the DA is considering perjury charges against the obvious liars in this case. Down the road, of course, after they have locked themselves into their lies during the trial.

    Maybe those friends who had time to "visibly" support her in the court room should have been out trying to get funds to pay experts and attorney fees... but no... now more delay tactics and the court's time and money is being wasted.

    WHY is the court paying her way. She is far from indigent.

    Yes, John provides an invaluable service. He was my only pre-trial source of information for the Gary Lee Bullock priest-murder trial...which took over two years to get going.

    And have we ever figured out WHY this never made the national news initially? I hope someone picks up the trial and puts it on the “front page.” Grrrrrrrrr!!

    Delay, by any means possible, is the name of the game in so many cases. Over two years waiting to go to trial seems to be the norm now.

    I don’t understand how her friends rationalize their support. What is it? “Poor Marci had an accident?” Never mind leaving the scene and hiding the truck and asking her son to lie! All that would be a deal-breaker if she had been my “friend.” Or “growers have to stick together?” Or some misguided sense of loyalty?

    Good question! I believe her money can be said to be her boyfriend’s, not hers, and if he stops paying, she’s indigent. Personally, I think the paid attorneys’ withdrawal from the case because she “can’t” pay them was a carefully orchestrated and long-planned maneuver to delay the trial. Boyfriend’s father is an attorney and knows all the tricks from his years of defending marijuana cases. I just hope the judge hangs tough. But of course, then there’s the risk of appeal due to inadequate defense.

    I sometimes wonder if the fellow "growers" defending her know (or care) that she's making them look bad/worse.

    Always my thanks for continuing to follow Chiv and keeping us up-to-date on this case, Lilibet!!

    We are camping in the area this week, and came into Fortuna to have lunch. My thoughts were filled with Kiya & Faith as we drove around town.

    How could you live with yourself if you ran over your child, left her dying on the road, then tried to hide it?

    I can imagine! We are thinking of a visit to SoHum sometime this summer. I’d love to time it and attend a bit of the trial!

    Maybe she “self medicates” with Humboldt Homegrown as we used to call it. Snark intended. :mad:

    This area has such beauty, we had Church in the Redwoods today.

    If your plans work out, I expect a play by play Lilibet. I found the people of Humbolt County to be friendly and warm. Quite colorful in contrast to SLO County

    Yes, it is a gorgeous area. We had acreage in the redwoods in SoHum. We’d still be there probably if scary people hadn’t taken over. But the ordinary locals are very friendly and warm.

    You can count on a play by play if I get there at the right time for the trial!

    Quoting John Chiv:

    Intervention for Marci Kitchen was scheduled for July 18. After 45 minutes of Judge Kaleb Cockrum meeting with attorneys privately; the courtroom was opened.

    Judge Cockrum stated on record what an intervention hearing is; informal and private matters are discussed in closed courtroom including the possibility of resolving the case. "We are still in middle of those conversations," said Judge Cockrum.

    The intervention has been continued until 1:30 on Friday. Judge Cockrum instructed attorneys if there were any motions to be filed, to do so before Friday afternoon.

    Words Worth: Another twist in the Marci Kitchen jury trial, you will have to wait until Friday to find out more

    John Chiv wonders if a motion for continuance or change of venue will be filed tomorrow July 20. He writes:

    “I have heard from people who were contacted by a research company this week asking them questions about the Kitchen case, what they had heard on social media , about media coverage, pre trial publicity and their feelings about this case, their feelings about Kitchen.”

    Words Worth: Motion for continuance or change in venue in the works for Marci Kitchen case?

    I wondered what happened in this case, but had forgotten the names. As soon as I saw the girls names, it made me realize this was the. Case.

    How this woman could run over her own child, go home to hide her car/truck tells the world she was under the influence of. Something. IMO.

    For this case to be two years and still not settled, it is sickening that they have been able to play the courts like this. The end result should be the same - guilty!
