Discussion in 'Gabriel Johnson' started by artsy1, Sep 10, 2012.
if you follow Camille Kimball on twitter she is tweeting from courtroom
JVM on HLN is discussing the case. Nothing new but I'm glad she is covering it.
I don't twitter so I'll just rely on you good folks to help keep us up-dated. Thank you so much.
Just catching up in preparation for the opening statements tomrrow. Thanks everyone for the posts.
It sounds like EJ is quite a problem for the judge, the court, her lawyers as well as the jail! See you all on the trial thread tomorrow!
what tweets should I be looking for???? anyone know a reliable one?
I am glad they are covering it. She also said they will update us.
Sometimes Jane does a story but then jumps on to something else.
Looks like she will devote some time to this. I do not know if Nancy Grace will because of Tammi Smith and that whole thing. She never mentioned this case after she went on there and Lied!
Hi passion- try this-
It collects all tweets related to EJ including courtpio and reporters. It can also pick up tweets for different Elizabeth Johnsons so you have to sort through them- mostly they will be our EJ during the trial.
Trial to begin Thursday for mom of missing baby
By Kelly Hessedal, FOX 10 News
Opening statements will begin Thursday in the trial of Elizabeth Johnson, the woman facing charges in the disappearance of her son, baby Gabriel, who remains missing to this day...
... and there was also a rather unusual motion brought forward regarding Elizabeth Johnson's meals...
...She had some concerns over whether she'd be able to eat during the trial -- her attorney requested she be allowed to bring some of her breakfast to the courthouse, or possibly bring a Power Bar or a snack...
..."I think Elizabeth is anxious to get the case to trial she wants to get the case to a conclusion. It's been negative press and publicity and its time for some things on her side to come out," said Johnson's attorney Marc Victor...
...Victor says overall he's happy with the jurors that are seated in this case -- 9 men, 6 women. As for whether Johnson will take the stand, he says we'll just have to wait and see. But ultimately it will be her decision...

What happened to Baby Gabriel?

Is that why she's having to wear a stun-belt? Or is this SOP in Maricopa County Courts? Somewhere I missed the reasoning behind it. Is she that likely to try to run or make a scene? Certainly LEO's with sidearms will be in the courtroom.
Will the jurors know that she's wearing such a belt? Seems to me that if they are, or if it is used, it might make them think of a straitjacket, thus mental case, thus insane, which would not be good for the prosecution's case.
Saba -- Let me be the 50th WS'er to say what a wonder you are to bring all this info to us so quickly! Many thanks.
Priorities are important.... Court schmourt -- letzzeat!!:what:

If the AZ law is similar to NC and other states' laws, seachiq, NC statutes say that it is forbidden for the jury to see the defendant in prison garb -- so that it will be fair for the defendant and for the State. We'll see...
Yes, ~n/t~ ! It looks like all that starchy jailhouse food is agreeing with her -- or she is agreeing with it...
Good to see you, ~n/t~ ! :seeya:
