    Seems to me that this enmeshed Mother/Daughter and detached Dad are still living life ( w same toxic dynamic ) as they always were.

    No one has seemingly yet had a “Moment or Clarity” in that triangle despite their ongoing circumstances.

    Maybe BSR getting a few yrs in prison will potentially bring that “sudden enlightenment” moment on & in the long run it’ll be the best thing that ever happened for her (them) on a personal level.

    I know she may walk (due to poor interrogation and hand holding etc imo ) but hopefully she won’t.

    The Prosecutor nailed the closing argument while the Defense was looking for mice in boxes ( hint: It’s buried in the Garden).

    So even if lesser sentence (than some think is just) comes down , one good thing is that I don’t believe that BSR has any “time served” credit and will potentially get a nice good vacation to think deeply about some things ( all of them will ).

    One pitfall is that I believe BSR will immediately look for and latch onto a “Prison Mom” and transfer her attachment to this hypothetical person who would gladly comply.

    Fear of abandonment/rejection was the main one though, wouldn't you agree?

    Yes, she's selfish and had no empathy for Baby Richardson. And that makes me wonder what else she could be capable of down the line if she were to be found not guilty of all charges and walk away from this. There's no doubt in my mind she will make herself the victim no matter the outcome here. And if she sees herself as a perpetual victim and doesn't take responsibility AND doesn't get punished, the stage is set for future bad acts imo. We already know she's capable of extreme acts and trying to manipulate her way out of them.

    Sorry, here in the threads and at this website we refer to them as the Pinellas County jury. In my post I just said Pinellas County, thinking that everybody here following the threads knew what I was talking about. But many people are not, so I had best be clear thank you.

    I should have said Pinellas County jurors. They were ALL brought in from Pinellas County pool, therefore " Pinellas County jury".

    Thank you so much, I have corrected and clarified my original posts to say Pinellas County jury instead of Pinellas County

    I certainly wouldn't want my kid dating her. Ugh. And as much as I pity her for how her parents twisted her into what she is today, she's a ghoul to me. She looks ghoulish, every time I see her face. Someone who coldly squeezed the life out of their baby and just wants to get away with that.

    She has a scary aspect to me that overrides her little lost girl act. Her face kind of makes me shudder.

    But I've noticed I may be the only one.

    I sincerely hope no one reading or posting here faced ANY of the circumstances while pregnant then giving birth that Skylar did.

    What an extraordinary and wonderful experience it is when one makes the choice to have a child, gets pregnant, has a healthy pregnancy, knows it will be possible to give that child everything she needs (most importantly, unconditional love), knows that sharing the news will make everyone she tells thrilled, and is in equal parts impatient to give birth so she can meet her baby, but also is in no hurry because pregnancy itself feels incredible, exciting, glorious, even.

    Minus all or most of those circumstances...like in Skylar's position....not gonna hold it against her that she didn't send out birth announcements and run right out shopping for baby clothes.

    Agree in that most people would wrap up buried pet in something, which I have experience with, and I don't think I've ever even heard of somebody burying a naked baby that was a mother in a case. I guess I need to research. Most mothers always wrapped in something. M o o.

    Slap!

    I forgot that she is on Bond and she is with her parents and under the control of her parents.

    If she was not on bond, she damn would be in front of the jury for any jury questions. Why do I think sometimes her family is trying to sabotage? M o o

    I cannot recall a case of late where the defendant was not in court during jury deliberations and brought forth for each question. In front of the jury. It is so disrespectful and flipping a finger at the jury or???

    This family is definitely a cluster of dysfunction m o o

    :banghead:

    (Miss old emoticons... but for the old-timers, you know what I'm doing.)

    ETA, could this be a strategy by the lawyers or the parents to think that this unprecedented behavior of not supporting their daughter and the jury and meeting the jury during questioning shows more mitigation? I'm just not following it.

    I'm telling you, the developments with the defense in the last few days has made me flip my verdict, and now this with FAMILY, just reinforces it.

    Brooke Skylar Richardson trial: Was it the perfect crime? Or a botched investigation of a troubled teen? Now the jury will decide.
    Deliberation and possible sentences
    The jury began deliberating Thursday morning. Their deliberations could last minutes, hours or days.

    In addition to aggravated murder and involuntary manslaughter, jurors are considering felony charges against Richardson for child endangerment and gross abuse of a corpse.

    The judge dismissed a charge of tampering with evidence earlier this week.

    If the jury finds Richardson guilty of aggravated murder, she faces 15 years to life in prison. This charge hinges on the baby being born alive and Richardson intentionally killing the child.

    If the jury finds that the baby was born alive, but Richardson did not intentionally take her life, they could find Richardson guilty of involuntary manslaughter. This charge carries a sentence of up to 11 years in prison.

    The judge said if Richardson is guilty of involuntary manslaughter, then she is also guilty of child endangering, which carries a sentence of two to eight years in prison. The jury could find Richard guilty of child endangering alone without finding her guilty of the more serious offenses.

    The jury can only find Richardson guilty of these three charges – aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter and child endangering – if they believe there was a live birth, the judge said.

    Gross abuse of a corpse carries a sentence of six to 12 months in prison.

    Thank you. I wonder if there was video of the excavation search for the remains at the Richardson house on July 14, 2017 in the 6 hours not played in court?

    Also, the interview post your replied to occurred on July 20, 2017 (i.e., 98pg transcript).

    I too see right through her. Poor lil Skyler give me a break! How anyone can think she’s not guilty is absurd to me given all the facts. Saying she is not guilty shows others it’s ok to bury a child you clearly don’t want. Moo

    Look at the Anthony parents. Mother is still the same as she was before her daughter was released. She still defends her, even above her husband.

    Whether she serves time or not, I don’t expect any deep reflection from anyone in the family, unfortunately.

    Agree. I think she knew that. In fact, I saw her Pinterest account before it was deleted and in my opinion, BSR had a real interest in pinning many dark ‘true crime’ novels on her page.
