I read here that things are different in small towns. I believe it.
I feel so bad critiquing LC's interview. But it doesn't add up. But it isn't going to solve the crime either.
She made a big deal about "whoa, what are you talking about - what party, etc".
It's just off. But she's not the guilty one. But something is off there.
Where are the apologies for those who mentioned Leah's House weeks ago?
Lisa said she was instrumental in the deal for Jess to go to LH. I think that's why she called the police; to get their help sending Jess somewhere.
Any Circuit Court judge will amend an order with a stipulated agreement between the DA and the defendant.
yes, and she also said she agreed not to press charges once JC agreed to go to Leah's House. So, in that case, the charges were dropped so the deal was between mom and daughter. unless JC was on deferred judgment/sentencing and Leah's House was a condition of her probation and legally binding.
the cops can't send JC anywhere - only the court/DA can. so there were charges at some point.
Sounds like her mom didn't really want to say. Can't blame her for that. But yeah, the police wouldn't arrest JC for being afraid of mom. We did learn things we hadn't before so I appreciate her talking to TG.
Not sure I understand.
can anyone line up the simple assault charges against JC to see if they match up to June or July of 2014?
I think that's it.
I am (happily) childfree but not quite old enough to be JC's mom...so, I don't know. I think I'm a lot bolder + willful than Lisa from what I observed. It would take a lot in my case. That said, I can imagine intervening like this if I truly felt helpless to solve my child's anger issues on my own + if I recognized that it was beyond my ability to help constructively. If I felt scared of her, for her, or like her behavior was out of control or senselessly reckless...and knowing she was 18, 19 - knowing I was limited legally by what I could do as that child was actually an adult at that point and no longer a minor.
As for specifics, I could only guess. Lisa's personality strikes me as timid but it's hard to tell how much of that is her shaken up from all of this. But my heart breaks a little because I don't know that Jessica felt like she could tell her mom a lot of what might've been on her mind. There's so much that Lisa, in hindsight, says she just "doesn't have a clue" about. :-(
Early June, the 5th or the 10th. IIRC
I was hand-shy and flinched when my parents (or other people) came near me but that's bc they did hit and abuse me.
so, we can assume they are from her altercation with her mom?
For me, it's back to square one.
It wasn't 6 or 6:30, it was 5 or 5:30. They didn't talk for 20 minutes, they talked for a few minutes. Jessica was in a different location than the gas station when she was speaking to her Mom. The 'where' still remains unknown, unless of course her cell phone could pinpoint that location to LE. Ugh...
I agree. I understand a mother being in denial.. Im pretty sure each new tidbit Lisa hears opens a new wound.
Would you mind explaining what you are talking about?
I ask this because if it was me in Lisa's shoes, the doctor would have to give me a sedative for a LONG time after seeing my child in the condition Lisa did.
My feeling is Lisa's calmness and softness came from being on a sedative. She deserves it! She may get a little confused at times because of it. And I am speaking of a legal drug! Also, she probably does not watch TV as she cannot bear to hear news about Jessica. Therefor, she has no idea what has been going on in the last month.
I applaud her for coming on the radio show to talk. A big step for Lisa!
Could it be as simple as her leaving was contingent on having somewhere approved to land? Because n a small town, with known individuals and families, I can see that sort of thing.
