Because the abuser twists truth and lies into a jumbled mess, not unlike the entire relationship. A Gordian knot, that can only be unraveled by getting to the center, wherein the base truth lies.
I very vaguely remember the Turner saga...I just know it too was an ugly ugly relationship.
The jury here, in this instance has to try to untie the proverbial Gordian knot, and get to the center. They will have had six weeks of horrific and redundant testimony to get through. Sorting through facts vs fiction, audio tapes, doctor's notes, police reports, photos etc. It will all boil down to who they believe more...AH or JD. IMO
I personally was gobsmacked when I first heard the audio recording of AH and her unglued state of mind. This was all I needed to hear....and I became "team Johnny" if you will. The man lived in pure hell, and admitted he tried to escape, via physical or chemical means.
I know I won't forget that. I don't know if the jury will be able to either.
