    Her appeals will reference her multiple attempts to dismiss her ineffective counsel, but judge wouldn't allow.

    She was so desperate, in fact, that she even went pro se over advice of her ineffective counsel.

    No one was asking about links to porn sites, just about any actual pictures. I assume the focus was on that because the only prior porn reference was to TA looking at an image. JA first told someon a computer and then that it was on paper. So, I think the only issue was whether there were any such porn pics on his computer, which there weren't. No one claimed anything else about porn.

    OK, I'm confused. State said it found no porn but Defense say they did. Then they talk about searches and website URLs typed into address line etc. Are they both talking about "actual" downloads of porn? Did State mean it didn't find any actual porn downloads and Defense found only searches etc.? Are they talking about the same thing or are they both correct? Is it possible this Motion could fly?

    I think we, Joe Public, are getting carried away with Nurmi's minutia. He has one goal, and one goal only, IMO, and that's to railroad the trial for as long as possible, by whatever means, foul or fair. (Well, no fair - just foul).

    Or he could be trying to bait them into using it because he will destroy it.

    I did see the other tweets regarding the other witnesses. I'm not so sure he wasn't talking about JA at the time. I guess we will know on Monday. Maybe it does hurt the prosecution because she was remorseful and begged for mercy. If you believe that one, I have a bridge.... :wink:

    Why doesn't the judge call him on his BS?

    Lol! It's incredible how he totallly ignored the porn and chose to focus on a silly music video. He's blaming JM but it's becoming clear that he didn't follow through on what his own expert testified to.

    Well if JSS will ever let the trial conclude, JA's decision on testifying will be made. As long as KN can stall, then the question remains open.

    And I don't think it's an issue for this court anyway. JSS says she can choose to testify or not. The COA won't hear this nonsense while the case is still open, because she could always change her mind and testify. And then afterward they'll say she had the choice and didn't take, so too bad.

    The COA also has to think in terms of precedents. Imagine the precedents that KN is trying to get them to agree too. Every defense lawyer would make a mockery of every case afterward.

    Reporters tweeted she looked "visibly upset", she left the room, came back and drew and today was wearing a wrist brace. Take it how you will, I think she punched some walls last night!

    What an evil look, it appears that she might be looking dead on at the camera with her hand on her hip. Kinda' like "why are you taking pics of me, you were told you were not allowed to in my casual wear". LOL.

    I agree about the vagueness of the "porn" references.

    JM can't say that the state "misconduct" should be balanced against JA's actions, because legally that's incorrect. :)

    Also, he wouldn't mention insanity because no one has ever remotely suggested that JA would be eligible for an insanity plea that I know of. She clearly is not. The defense has only ever said that her mental issues are relevant to mitigation, which they are.

    What's the point? Rule on his motion and let him appeal if he's so inclined.

    The true nature of her evil is showing now, she can't hide behind makeup and hair dye anymore.

    What we learned today is that Nurmi is fresh out of witnesses. Game over. No 14. No extended porn-fest via bearded anonymous witnesses. No long dissertation about porn by Dr G.

    Just JA or no JA.

    Hopefully, if Nurmi thinks he's found a new playground for delays at COA, they'll surprise him with prompt denial. He may have JSS somewhat paralyzed about making decisions, but they could show him how fast a decision can be made if he becomes a pest.

    He was saying if they played video of her testimony from the first trial that would hurt the prosecution. And the only reason that wouldn't be an option is if she lied the first time around.
