Here is my question.
JA chose not to conduct a defense based upon mental illness. They had every opportunity to pursue that avenue, but declined to do so. So here we are now. Can Juan say something like, "it's clear the defense are trying a hail Mary pass. When you hear them talk about this poor mentally ill "girl", just remember that they clearly launched a self defense case and NOT a mental illness excuse."
He can say that, right?

What appears to be bruising the buttocks is the pooling of bloodcalled lividity. Two incised wounds to the head are two inches each. The skull is one of the thickest boney structures in the body. Travis would have felt pain associated with the head wounds.

He could try. It will probably go like this. "it's clear OBJECTION! the defense OBJECTION! are trying a hail Mary pass SIDEBAR YOUR HONOR. (15 minutes later) When you hear them talk about this poor mentally ill "girl" OBJECTION!, just remember that they clearly launched a self defense case OBJECTION! and NOT a mental (YOUR HONOR, OBJECTION) illness excuse (YOUR HONOR, move to strike?)."
