    As much as I wanted the State's cross of CBR to be hard-hitting, I now agree it was better not to give wings to the fantasy, and stick to restating the known facts.

    CBR quickly forgot that three men were allegedly at the cornfield!

    I do hope the State uses their closing statement to show how dirty (and desperate) the defense bowed to attack so many innocents without legal or moral basis to do so -- especially when they opted to put their client on the stand to tell about his fantasy, bandito, abduction.

    Hoping for conviction Friday...

    I think Mollie’s disappearance etc triggered her anguish about the trauma her father inflicted. She is obviously still affected by it. He lived near there and she felt LE needed to know. I have no problem with her doing that. I have a problem with the defense traumatizing her again to play this crazy game they are playing.

    We get to pay for the upkeep of the illegal forever.
    Why is this not a DP case?

    Just heard from our pool reporter that we're not done for the day. She says back in 30-45 minutes for jury instructions.

    More from pool reporter: Only two or so jurors are consistently taking notes. "One young female juror made herself comfortable in the gallery pew – legs propped up, elbow up with her head resting on her hand, frequently biting her nails and/or looking at her nails."

    I took his testimony to mean they told him to stop...and it was only about 300 meters- not that they told him to stop at 300 meters.

    I thought so too! Or maybe he’s been in AA for the last 5 years & realized they couldn’t use it.

    I feel for that woman and I would have also called the tip line to suggest he be investigated. However, putting her on to testify seems to me to be more about giving her an opportunity to trash her dad on a national stage than anything to do with this case, and the defense team should own that.

    Why would they have jury instructions before the closing arguments?

    I'm thinking CBR found his first job within a year (i.e., 1st farm in a different town) and his second job (Yarabee Farms) within days upon moving to Poweshiek County. Seems he first lived with an aunt and her electrician husband and next lived near his uncle - the farm laborer. MOO

    I would've liked the Prosecution to be more direct. Ask him to describe just exactly Mollie's attire and condition when he covered her. Item by item, inch by inch. Tell the jury, CBR,what the sweatered corngoons did to her before you laid her to rest. As if.

    Remind us again --

    So much for blacking out.

    And, in my opinion, the judge should have never allowed it.

    I hope they do! I bet that is why they didn't hammer CBR too hard on cross. They let him speak listened to that fabricated mess and can possibly call witnesses tomorrow to pick apart several things he said. No way they could have been prepared today to do that without knowing that elaborate story he would tell.. and no could anyone have imagined up something so ridiculous?

    I believe this was Jury instructions ready to present tomorrow -- the jurors have already been dismissed for the day.
