    The Castle Doctrine would have been an excellent defense for Jean, had he killed AG. The fact that the court is allowing the intruder to use the doctrine is unconscionable and leads me to believe the fix is in.

    I am firmly convinced that AG missed all the clues that she was in the wrong place because she had her face in her phone. My God, she still did instead of helping Mr. Botham!

    Completely agree. He comes off belligerent and arrogant and some jurors may consider him talking down to them.

    per prosecutor....castle doctrine. is her "reasonable" belief higher than the castle doctrine? common sense. not her apartment, no force. law in place for Botham not her.

    Prosecutor: You are the voice of the community. Your home is supposed to be your sanctuary. You can't have people coming in and killing homeowners. It can't happen. There have to be consequences

    State points out that the bullet that went through the wall could have killed someone outside and THAT may have been manslaughter, but this was murder. She went in there "guns blazing".

    Hopefully, the jury has the ability to think for themselves and ignore the misdirection.

    Gorgeous man. Look at that beautiful smile.

    I think she is going to get manslaughter. I'll be disappointed but I feel that is the way it will go, hopefully I'm wrong.

    I didn’t like the prosecutor’s tone. Get Hermus! This guy doesn’t sound convicted himself. He’s conceding there are problems with the state’s case - he told them there’s nothing he can do if they believe it’s recklessness. WTH? What kind of argument is that?

    This is a very interesting thought, and you may be correct. But she's a former police officer. She was officially not on duty. Not sure there would be any orchestrated attempt on her behalf. But who knows, not too much surprises me anymore.

    lol, defense says she is an ordinary prudent person. She's the opposite. What's wrong with this man trying to sell us on what a "prudent" person she is?

    prudent definition

    wise or judicious in practical affairs; sagacious; discreet or circumspect; sober.
    careful in providing for the future; provident:

    BBM: Jumping off your post here with a question that I just thought about:

    Did it come up during the trial the location of the bowl of ice cream that Botham was eating when AG shot him?

    I know - it may not matter - but what I am trying to say is did the location of the bowl of ice cream indicate where Botham was when AG shot and killed him?

    Thank you.

    That judge isn't corrupt. I don't believe there's any fix with her. I guess it's just TX law. If she made a reasonable mistake the doctrine would come in.
