He can't bring points up in cross that are not brought up by direct first.

So if he continually blocks the direct examination, it leaves him with much less material to work with.

The phrase "give a person enough rope to hang themselves by" comes to mind in this situation.

But when Juan cross examined doc quacksalot, Willmott was like a Jack-in-the-Box jumping up and down with objections ... some the judge overrules and others they had a sidebar. It was constant interruptions and I am sure Willmott will do the same thing when he ever gets to cross Alyce.

But I have faith in Juan ... he can handle Alyce LaViolette.

I am under the impression that this trial only decides her charge and her sentence. She admitted killing him so "not guilty " is not an option.

She could get a not guilty if the jury thinks it was self defense.

However, due to the brutality of the murder, I doubt that will happen.

You never know what a jury is going to decide.

We don't know how Juan Martinez will handle the cross of AL ... he comes on strong and I don't know how the jury will react to that with this woman.

Right now Willmott is only up to March 2008 ... so it appears Willmott will drag this out until the end of the day so the jury will have all weekend to ponder on AL's testimony.

I don't understand why they don't hold court on Fridays.

Willmott now moving on to April 1, 2008.

You are correct about one thing ... we never know what a jury will decide.

It appears Juror #5 is obsessed. This case is going from watching a 3 ring circus, into watching a train wreck. I think there's going to be multiple opportunities for an appeal...

"Obsessed?" She's given up months of her life for this trial, she has as much right to be there as any other member of the public as long as she does not speak to the other jurors.
