    This witness was chocked up before she even started speaking. Not even Botham's family came to the stand in that state.

    Why are they beating this whole she was so interested in law enforcement angle? What does that have to do with anything? It hurts them more than helps. She didn't render aid and was scrolling through her phone while his body was being carried out. Seriously?

    Showing her in a Mariachi band vs Botham helping the elderly!! Wow I feel so sorry for Amber - she'll never be in a Mariachi band again. :rolleyes:

    No one seems to know her very well now. Could the defense really not find anyone more current? I don't feel they are doing much for their client.

    ETA: never mind, this person seems to have seen her more recently.

    Very poor witness. Not making any sense.

    Past sexual abuse is often brought up as a mitigating factor. Certainly it’s not an enormous factor in this case IMO, but I think it is relevant enough to discuss during sentencing.

    I think the defense did the best they could. A large amount of people have ordinary and self-centered lives. A minority of people are not only good people, but also are selfless and aspire to help others.

    It just so happens that Amber's life is fairly normal and maybe shows a bit of not being such a good person. Hard to find really good and outstanding things to say in those circumstances.

    Also, it just happens that Botham was one of those extraordinary people with no shortage of people with overwhelmingly positive things to say about him.

    "She's had immense remorse."

    I wonder if this is where the cruise comes up.

    Victims of sexual crimes are never supposed to be publicly named, whether a minor or not, AFAIK.

    Brenda Sales is also chocked up and shaky! I'm sorry I can't take this seriously! I just can't. Call me cold-hearted if you must...

    :) Hello,

    BBM: Probably not because IMO, people that really knew her wanted to avoid her like the plague after they found out the facts.

    MOO

    She does in a way. She shows and explains what type of people Amber related to - equally neurotic as she is. (jmo)
    Not a good witness for the defense.

    Another woman being weepy before she's asked a question. No tears, though. None. The last one seemed to at least have tears.

    She is literally dabbing a kleexex on dry eyes. Come on defense. This is silly.
