    I’m sorry, but after watching this trial, I feel the jury made the right decision.
    I feel terrible if she was ever abused, as she claims, but I feel there was more evidence to show her character and she didn’t come off, to me, as a battered woman. Now I understand those characteristics vary by person and situation, but I felt this case was very surprising to me. I initially wondered what led up to this, but now I feel that she was looking for a way out and the cps visit pushed her to it. JMO of course. I feel sorry for the kids, and I got a bit irritated when I read the comment from Elizabeth Clifton that she gave the journal after the verdict. She was a supporter of Nikki and she said “We’re heartbroken and devastated and we are thinking of Nikki’s (two children) who will go to sleep without their mother.”
    Ummm I’m sorry but that’s because their mother chose to shot their father. I don’t feel sorry for her. I feel sorry for the kids and it’s sad.

    Nicole Addimando sentencing pushed back to June 10


    The sentencing for Nicole Addimando, originally set in court for May 20, will take place on June 10, according to one of her defense attorneys, John Ingrassia.

    A Dutchess County jury on Friday found Addimando guilty of second-degree murder in connection with the September 2017 shooting death of Christopher Grover, her live-in boyfriend and the father of her children. She faces a maximum sentence of 25-years-to-life in prison.

    Ingrassia said the May date was immediately set inside Dutchess County Court, but the defense requested a later date to allow for more time to submit sentencing submissions. The judge approved the request in court, he said.

    I agree. I think that the jury got this right. I think she planned it and I believe she needs mental health counseling. I think that given her background of claiming abuse and LE not finding any, she may have a warped sense of relationships.

    I believe she killed him while he slept. He couldn’t defend himself and he wasn’t threatening her. If she was abused at some point by him, I feel she was strong enough to leave. Perhaps he had a life insurance policy that she felt would take care of her and the kids so she wouldn’t need to marry again.

    I haven’t heard anything!! I was hoping to go to the courthouse yesterday, but it was an absolute madhouse. No parking and there was a line out the door before 8am.
    I am also not seeing any activity on the Facebook group for her, was hoping maybe someone attended and would have an update.
    Ironically, Nina, the journalist covering the case left on April 29th for a job at the Grace Smith house for battered women. I wonder if this trial influenced her decision?
    It doesn’t seem like the Poughkeepsie journal has assigned anyone to cover this. Very disappointing.

    I have been thinking the same. All the info about abused women must have affected her. It doesn’t necessarily mean that she believes that Nikki was abused (however I have no idea if she indeed does believe so) but I think all the information obtained while covering this must have affected her, I know it would affect me if I started reading up on it.
    I really wish we could get someone new to cover the story.

    Please delete if not allowed, but it was mentioned she was due back in court on July 15th. I did not get this information from MSM since we don’t seem to have coverage for her.
    If the date of 7/15 is correct, I will take a personal day from work and attend, since we seem to be on our own here. I’ll post updates if I see any!

    Side note- kinda always wanted to be a beat journalist so here’s my shot!

    Nicole Addimando sentencing postponed; conference scheduled for July 30


    Nicole Addimando's sentencing was pushed back again.

    Last scheduled for this coming Monday, the sentencing was moved back at the request of the defense, according to Benjamin Ostrer, one of Addimando's defense attorneys.
    [.....]
    A new sentencing date has yet to be determined, but a conference date has been scheduled for July 30.

    This is the latest postponement of the sentencing, which was originally scheduled for May 20. It was then pushed back to June 10 and rescheduled again for July 15.

    I’m putting my request off for work in tomorrow to attend this. Hopefully they don’t postpone or push it back.
    You think I’ll look like a creep sitting outside the courthouse 2 hours ahead of time considering I know nobody in this case-personally at least?

    I don't think so It's not that unusual, and I doubt you'll be the only one.

    I’m in a private group run by Nikki’s family and supporters. They posted that the hearing on the 30th is private between the attorneys. They don’t have a sentencing date as of yet.
    Sorry if this isn’t allowed since it’s not MSM.
