To organize the events and comments from each amazing day, and since people are watching at different times, here's a separate topic. Thank you to RC, Turtle and Dr. Blue for the YouTubes! We're making indexes for each video, thank you Karen Walker :bighug: Message if you have more timecodes!

#4 State of FL v Terry Trussell - 060716 AM Session 1
In Chambers -- Thank you Reality Check (RC)!

00:00:35 Judge H. is concerned about TT leaving the courtroom w/o permission. After some discussion TT waives his right to be present. (TT plays the dumb card here for the first time.)
00:02:50 JH has a concern about jury overhearing sidebar discussions. Will move sidebars to hallway.
00:03:43 JH wants evidence list. SA Meggs says the State had theirs months ago. IG gave state a pile of documents but not a numbered list. JH wants it ASAP.
00:07:30 Both sides agree there are no lesser includeds.
00:08:50 IG gives JH TT's motion for a mistrial. JH: Denied
00:09:50 IG objects that she will not be allowed to recall Judge Parker. Denied
00:10:50 IG brings up concerns about two jurors. A Mr. Cannon was married to Mary Cannon who works in SA office. She was copied on emails about GJ and TT in August 2014. Another is a teacher. Was seen talking to attorney for school board in the hallway. IG wants JH to voir dire both again. JH said Cannons have been separated for several years and he disclosed in voir dire. Also no evidence the teacher was discussing case. Denied IG request.
00:19:00 IG wants to limit SA using the term "filed". Motion pending.
00"19:30 Discussion about jury instructions and timing. JH wants them finalized before closing arguments.
00:20:55 JH wants exhibit list from IG at 9 AM. IG whines and says can't be done. JH: Get what you can done in 10 minutes

Okay...I'm really going slow here. Just finished Day #1 a bit ago, and have now viewed Video #1 (pre-court meeting) for Day #2. Just thought I'd share a few quick observations:

1) Terry Trussell does not preen or smirk during the pre-court meetings. When he speaks at all, he whines ("well, I have to go to the bathroooooomm!").
2) Inger Garcia's posture and demeanor (and I don't give a rat's ass how tired she is, or how late and long she worked the night before, or how bad the clothes she is wearing for the 2nd day stink from her own flop sweat) is slouchy and disrespectful to the court/Judge Hankinson/the State attorneys. Her input is whiny and shows a clear lack of experience and understanding of the criminal court process (which, to be fair, will vary a bit from trial to trial and from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but it really is pretty simple stuff, and the standards of decorum simply do not vary, whether you're in Dixie County or Miami Dade County).
3) Judge Hankinson literally tickles me when, as he denies a motion, he noisily balls up the paper on which his copy is printed, and 2-points it into the nearest trash can. :lol:

My god! What the FUCK was Garcia thinking???

I'm at about 1:06:15, when they come in from a 10-minute recess at the end of Garcia's cross of Mr. Linton. First, and this one is really a fairly minor incident of disrespect, but when the jury comes back in, everyone who is standing is doing so respectfully except Garcia. She's dicking around with her paperwork. Then she finished with her cross, but while walking from the lectern to her table she announces that her being finished is subject to her right to recall during her case in chief. And, not merely content to deliver that announcement to the judge while strolling across the room, she actually points at the judge while she's saying it. Seriously, in what special universe does she live where that would be acceptable conduct from an attorney during a jury trial???

There's a lot of that. And also going into the well without permission, approaching witnesses without permission. It just went on and on. (I also noted that SA Meggs occasionally approached witnesses without asking, too.)

She also spins her feet in the chair a lot. Just all unprofessional. Every time she disrespectfully used a first name I thought of another nail going in the box. For all the talk that Terry was a local, this trial featured real locals: the Sheriff, Court Clerk and assistants, the top Judge, etc. People they all might deal with again. For Inger to disrespect them was so unnecessary and stupid. :blackeye:

And I'm guessing the jurors voted for Siegmeister, or had the opportunity to.

Like Slim & P-Girl said in the BOTG, he was really impressive and so was his testimony. Terry Trussell tried to ruin his life. The Jury really did a good job.

Looking back at an article called "The Terry Trussell Story" there was more about Seigmeister:
The Terry Trussell Story
Posted by Raquel Okyay March 15, 2015

Florida officials, including 2016 presidential front runner John Ellis “Jeb” Bush, are scrambling to keep a Dixie County common law grand jury foreman quiet as evidence mounts of inappropriate execution of Common Core.
***
Siegmeister would eventually convene a statutory grand jury but not before tainting the jurors’ views with illegal ex-parte communications, obstruction of information, and obstruction of justice, he said.“The state attorney interrupted my presentation of the case concerning the bribery scheme to the statutory grand jury.” [Can they print that out for the sentencing hearing? :blackeye: :lol: ]

Trussell wrote a complaint letter to the obligatory judge assigned to the grand jury, and several weeks later he said he was informed by the chief judge of the circuit, Judge Gregory S. Parker, that he was officially removed as jury foreman. “The court refused to address the issues I had with the state attorney; I felt the grand jury had been corrupted and consequently declared it void.”

Trussell said the state had insufficient grounds in determining that a juror cannot have an adversarial hearing. “I did not have an opportunity to put on a defense.” In court documents, Trussell accused the judge of colluding with Siegmeister to personally attack him in an attempt to hide criminal actions by the state attorney. This reaction makes the court professionally and personally culpable, he said.

“Some are saying that when people complained to Terry about the bribery involved in Common Core he should have just ignored it,” said Rodger B. Dowdell Jr., one of the people. But that is not Trussell, he said. “Terry is fundamentally a very strong valued person who loves the country, very patriotic, and he cares about his fellow citizens.”

I've now watched through the end of the prosecution's case in chief.

The following should not be taken as a critique of Mr. Meggs in any way - I presume that his trial strategy was shaped at least in part by his read of the defense team (both counsel and client) - but if I was on the jury, I might have voted to acquit if Garcia rested without presenting a case. (Might.)

I am on the same page with you there. Trussell should never have agreed to testify.

And I also think the jury's body language during Trussell's direct showed suspicion about him. I don't know why and can't put my finger on it, but that's what I thought. And after testifying, Trussell stands up and is looking away from the jury nervously, which wasn't a good look.

Did anyone catch that during one of the breaks in TT's direct examination he was actually running to get back on the stand? I think it was when he was giving his life story.He was really full of proud of himself.
