I just hope that this one will not end in the same way.
Thankfully this trial is being held in Arizona and not Florida.

Wait til you hear Jodi's testimony this comming Monday in court. She is such a deceitful liar with her over the top testimony about Travis sex life and is so halucinatory. She's trying to make herself out to be the innocent victim. I just hope the jurors are sophisticated enough to see through her fabrications.
Poor Travis not able to defend himself is a travesty in justice itself.

I can't imagine how his family felt sitting there for hours on end listen to this creature blather on about their loved one. And watching huge photographs of his private parts being projected on the screen for everyone to see.

I hope the prosecution breaks her down in a way that will make every juror member realize what a liar she is.

All that being said, I do think its possible that he did do all those sexual things with her. He was trying to stay on this strict path of virginity and find a good Mormon wife, but then he meets a hot girl who will give him a blow job in the parking lot, and he can't resist it. So he goes for it. And tries to keep it a bit on the down low from his friends. And she goes along with it, even though deep down she doesn't like it. And the longer she goes along with it, the angrier she gets.

It will be interesting to see the cross-examination.

I missed the photos of his private parts. What was that all about?

"It takes two to tango"

Travis does have many characteristics of a Sexual Deviant. This was way beyond 'trying to stay a virgin.'

Travis has exhibits many psychosexual disorders (or Paraphila) including:

*Pedophilia (an attraction to children hence Pollyanna, ponytails, 12 year old girl voice)

*Exhibitionism (cell phone pictures of body parts),

*Voyeurism (requesting body parts photos from Jodi)

* Pederasty (a attraction to boys, hence the anal sex preference and boys spiderman underwear).


It's not uncommon for victims of sexual abuse in their childhood or adolescence to become sexual deviants and play it out on someone less powerful to themselves.

Travis Alexander-Textbook Sexual Deviant.

Was the decision for her to take the stand foolish?

I think so.

The Prosecutor is going to have a field day with her.

I don't think it was foolish. I think the defense is aiming to win from the sympathies of the women jurors, however few there may end up being.
The death penalty is definitely off the table. It'll may be ruled 2nd degree murder, a non-premeditated killing is which the death of the victim was a distinct possibility. Possibly, depending on how successful the prosecution cross goes, or doesn't go, the jury may feel sorry for her and she'll get hit with Voluntary Manslaughter, or Heat of Passion. This also depends on how well she explains the 'gun' or lack thereof one. The defense cannot ignore the gun issue.
