    Let me see if I got this right. Mitigating specialist Maria has spelled her tweet handle wrong all this time. Now that it is brought up in court she changes it to the correct spelling. Why? Does she want to make sure the judge gets to the right Twitter account? Has anyone checked to see if she has been deleting tweets? Maybe she thinks it will bring in new interests to check her out. I don't know, but it is odd to me that she chooses this time to correct the spelling.

    I'm sure (if needed) Perry Smith will be able to retrieve all the tweets made by the previous accounts from caches and that they have everything they need screenshot too. Not that I think they will use it. But if the prosecution are aware of the old account (which they were) then I'm sure Juan could produce whatever evidence was needed.

    Would Twitter be able to provide them?

    Harmony: Are those festive drinks for us? I think many of us could use one after today. If nothing else, I'd like to toast JM for his closing. As for Nurmi's? Maybe we should pour him a few so that he can cry in his beer.

    I believe there is a search engine that pulls up deleted tweets so it likely wouldn't do her any good to be deleting things at this point. Can't see why the prosecution would really bother looking for any though. That's just another rabbit hole they'd rather avoid I'm sure. At this point they just want this phase to get on track with the witnesses and be done with it.

    MOO

    If Juan had to, he could supeona Twitter and most hosting sites I believe are compelled to turn over informtion if under court order or LE order to do so. But I agree with others that Juan most likely won't need to go that far. He already made his main point that she was spewing on social media about this case and I am pretty sure that is against her work policy.

    What's the betting that if (and I hope with all my heart she does) JSS denies the motion that <modsnip> Nurmi tries to get himself off the team again? We'll be looking at a motion to pull him and Willmott off the case again, just to throw another delay into proceedings.

    With all the allegations from the DT about TA possibly having some type of porn on his computer, I am quite surprised that Juan hasnt hammered home the point that Jodi had access to his computer after she killed him.

    She had all kinds of time after she killed him to sabatage the PC. Just bringing that point up I think would have helped the judge realize it cannot be proven that Travis did anything of the kind that the DT keeps claiming.

    So even if porn was found, it can never be proven who put it there. Really wish he would have hammered home that point.
    Of course we havent even seen 1 picture of this alleged porn so maybe he didnt feel it necessary.
    This case is so gross in so many ways.

    So way back at the start of this ridiculous hearing, Nurmi accused Juan of gross prosecutorial misconduct, alleging that he signed out the electronic evidence and tampered with it, secretly deleting thousands of porn files. He wanted Juan to be disbarred, fired and possibly charged criminally. Flores too as his accomplice.

    So where are we now? Nurmi now says ' Ok, there was one instance of child porn, maybe, and it might have been from the computer virus--but it was because Flores used his evil pencil to awaken the computer, in front of the DT team..'

    We have dropped a long way from the original vile accusations that brought about this silly hearing. And still, Nurmi asks for all the charges to be dropped...because Nurmi says Travis had a virus on his computer that infected it with porn, and NEITHER of the computer experts picked up on it at the start. :no:

    Considering the seriousness of the job, one would think that a mitigation specialist would act with grace, grit and honesty. In this case, she seems more like a desperate character from a soap opera.

    Maybe that's something he's saving for later and didn't want to waste it in the misconduct hearing? He plays his cards wisely, no?

    Very Good point. He may use it in his closing too if he needed to.

    I still don't quite understand what precisely her job is. So far, she's acted as CMJA's minder and pr person, which I assume is not in the job description. Can anyone explain just what exactly she's supposed to actually do?

    ETA: Jeez I'm stupid today. I meant to quote Rose's post about Cougarlicious and not my own post. My only excuse is that I'm tired after a day of simultaneous work and all-day WS. I obviously can't continue this way.

    KatieCooLady, I thought of you today when Martinez called out Kiefer today in court. Hope it made your day. :happydance:

    Many, many people outside of this forum know that he has an agenda.

    Well, of course not but...

    So, I was looking for info on whether child porn is, or was, even available on the internet via a web search using the claimed terms of "teen" and "tween" or even "child porn". I found a law enforcement article from 2006 that indicated even back then child porn sites were basically shut down as soon as they were created.

    http://www.popcenter.org/problems/child_pornography/print/

    So, I would argue that even if TA searched for "teen" "tween" or whatever, there would have been no child porn found as a result. If there was an interest in the subject, what would have been found on his computer would be evidence of belonging to a newsgroup, chat room etc devoted to sharing images. Even if he deleted files they would be found since they all searched for deleted and hidden files and files with innocuous names that could hide other things. Both experts in the first trial testified to that. And since there were no images it is, IMO, basically impossible that TA was interested in any way in child porn.

    Not that I believe even JSS would allow Nurmi to present testimony about child porn on TA's computer to the jury. But if it does happen I hope Juan is prepared to attack the claims on the merits as I find what they are proposing is absurd. Add to that the fact that Nurmi has never even presented any evidence that anything on TA's computer actually led to any actual child porn. I am hoping that JSS took note of that.
