"This man's life is on the line," the defense tells jurors as she begins wrapping up her closing arguments. #HollyBobo
nobody can convince me this is brilliance..
Anyone else getting a headache?
While her style makes me crazy, she did have compelling arguments. That said, I think the state was stronger.
"This man's life is on the line"....as if he's had a life.
Not according to his Mommy.
It was almost manic for me
"ready made alibi"
driving around with a new bathtub in your rape van?
This is a good time to move over to a new thread...
This thread will close shortly...
I dont think Jennifer Thompson hit the mark - nick from nick and nick
Probably the most negative thing they have said about the defense the entire trial.

I wanted to tell you yesterday that I am so happy to see you on this thread but I had such a bad headache I forgot to mention it. I love your logical posts that you always bring to every subject.
I indeed agree with you. No one has to scream at the top of their lungs to get their point across and those who do so are off putting to me. I dont like loud voices and much prefer soft tones. Trying to listen to her yesterday is what gave me such a terrible headache so today I have only watched the first portion of the state's closing. When it came the defense's turn I turned down the sound and only followed the tweets here.
My grandmother use to say 'a lie has to be screamed to be heard but the truth can be heard with just a whisper.'
I loved the ADA who did the first closing for the state. I keep repeating his words in my head about ZA saying no body no gun four months before Holly's skull was even found. That was profound and I hope ADA Nichols repeats it in her closing.
Respectfully, a case containing a preponderance of circumstantial evidence does not a death penalty case make.
That's how some of these folks found themselves in this situation:
Well where is the evidence that Holly was ever in that van?
Oh never mind, they didn't find anything or they would have arrested him instead of this group.
It won't be by preponderance. If the jury convicts it will be because they believed the state proved the charges BARD (beyond a reasonable doubt). Circumstantial evidence is very powerful, often more powerful than direct evidence, which people tend to doubt because it involves eye witness testimony.
Preponderance of circumstantial evidence?
That is the threshold for civil trials ...........not criminal trials.
Many DP cases based on CE have been upheld by the courts for many many years.
Sadly, I missed the prosecution's closing arguments and will have to watch on youtube. Not her fault but DA's voice literally gives me a headache, so I muted it until cell phone notice came through that she was done.
