    the Judge ordered her released on 07/13; that is next Wednesday. One last partyless week-end.

    ……Never heard of In Session or HLN or CNN who carried the entire trial live on TV. SO yeah a whole crap load of people SAW the evidence. Guess you don’t have a problem with a psychopath free on the streets. Do you need a nanny? I am sure she will be needing a job shortly.

    …and it is by no means perfect, but we had 12 independent, court screened and sanctioned people that listened to a month and a half of evidence and testimony. They all came to the SAME conclusion in only eleven hours! That’s pretty powerful and pretty indicative that they knew she didn’t do it, based on the evidence.

    The trial is over now and no matter whether you agree with the outcome, it is what it is and worked the way our system intended. Too many times people here accuse, try and convict people based on media reporting.

    Guess what folks? NONE of you sat through the entire trial, none of you saw all of the evidence. All you know is what you hear and read. That simply isn’t enough to allow you to place the rope around their neck at the gallows. I hope that NONE of you armchair judges and jurors out there are EVER convicted of even a simple crime in another country. Not only will you NEVER leave, you’ll likely never even be heard from again, much less get a fair trial.

    she gets sentenced tomorrow, Thursday, on the 4 misdemeanor charges for which she was found guilty.

    With time served, she could be on the street by Friday and ready to make up for lost party time.

    And, in the absence of a capital crime guilty verdict, she will get to keep all of the book and movie money which is already lining up to flow her way. One can only hope her legal bill exceeds all the dollars she may receive.

    Her defense had no shame.
    Tried to somehow argue her brother was the child’s biological Father. Not certain how that was relevant to her defense.

    Tried to accuse her Father of abuse and who knows what other crimes.

    Some day she’ll be standing before St Peter for a final judgement. Unless she changes, she may well be wearing asbestos gloves and shoveling coal down below.
