Discussion in 'Dr. Teresa Sievers' started by JerseyGirl, Jan 25, 2019.
Does anyone know how the jury will be selected or when that process will begin?
That is a good question as it appears they need two juries. Will the jury pool from one county give enough of a selection? Will they find one jury, like for MS first, then find the second jury? Or will all jurors be found and then split up to make two juries? Has the Judge even approved two juries yet?
Motions being filed thick and fast. I've just copied the 1st page of each motion. (Some may be duplicated.)
We all knew Mark and his team would take this route re all the motions. They are getting paid to defend the POS. All these motions don't bother me because Mark is panicking and stressed out re his future. Karma Mark!
The last motion requesting that no links be made to Mark's sexual adventures because they feel it has nothing to do with the murder, what a joke. His adventures paint who he is (scum) and is very relevant to the murder of his wife.
Yes, he is saying that it was with full knowledge and consent of his spouse. They also did a motion in limine because they want his sexual proclivities of his extramarital affairs inadmissible. They also want the state not to be able to use the terminology of burner phone. They want the state to use only the term of prepaid phone.
I thought the jury questionnaire was interesting when it ask the person to fill it out if they have ever taken the blame to protect someone, or have you had a friend or family member addicted to sex.
If some of the jurors know it is available, some of them might be requesting of the judge for an In camera conference for some of these questions versus having to tell the world.
Mark is still throwing Teresa under the bus by stating she knew. JMO, but I do not think she had full knowledge of every adventure.
Lots of docs now available on https://matrix.leeclerk.org.
State has given notice to introduce certified business records from:
State Farm Life
MS's defence wants to suppress mobile phone data dumps from cell towers in CT and Fort Myers. I think this would show the use of burner prepaid phones. The objection is mainly on privacy issues (first page only):
Attached is a text version of the jury questionnaire.
Bit of a disagreement over attorney-client privilege in MS's deposition in the attached pdf.
Thanks Legally Bland for finding and posting. I bet the trial will be postponed again.

Teresa Sievers murder trial pushed back, state still waiting on DNA reports
So frustrating. Praying again for Teresa’s family & loved ones.... all this time waiting. What a nightmare for them.
Disappointed, but whenever the trial happens, I will be here. If I don't die of old-age first.
ITA... however long it takes, MS, we will be waiting for justice for Teresa.
sigh..... it has been over 4 years! I am definitely going to this trial when it happens. Drinks are on me if other ppl want to meet. Hoping my soul sister True crime addict will meet for a drink.
At this rate, CWW will be sentenced after these other two are convicted and sentenced, but then released! The Judge will probably tell CWW “you get credit for time served, credit for good behavior and are released”. Meanwhile the other two are in prison. That would be a “kicker” IMO to the MS And JR. IMO CWW took the correct path and will see freedom once again.
