    Trial Discussion Thread:

    reposting a few of the warnings:

    Okay everybody - LISTEN UP! We are not bashing, accusing or blaming Tori's family here. It won't be allowed.

    Children walk home from school every day without incident. Parents are not perfect, it's just not possible. Tori's parents DID NOT do this to her. TLM and an accomplice DID. That is where the blame goes.

    We had a lot of family bashing in the early parts of this investigation after Tori went missing and a lot of baseless accusations - NONE OF WHICH PROVED TO BE TRUE. Victim and family bashing will not be allowed during this trial.

    Thank you,
    Salem

    Good morning. Definitely looking forward to this week. Hopefully we'll have a verdict before the weeks end! Thinking of the Macdonald-Stafford families & praying for the guilty verdict for the family & especially Victoria!

    My stomach is in knots and I'm very emotional today. Perhaps it's because we're nearing the end of this long awaited journey to justice for Victoria.

    Prayers to Tara, Rodney, D and Victoria's family. May justice prevail. RIP Victoria.

    Mike Knoll: The fate of Michael Rafferty is expected to be in the hands of the jury this week.
    Rafferty's lawyer Dirk Derstine is scheduled to make his closing remarks to the jury Monday morning, followed by the Crown.

    Justice Thomas Heeney will give the jury his instructions on Wednesday.

    Rafferty, 31, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual assault in the 2009 killing of eight-year-old Woodstock girl Tory Stafford.

    Rafferty's former girlfriend, Terri-Lynne McClintic has already pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and is serving a life sentence. She was the central witnesses for the Crown during the five week trial.
