Anyone trying to get the truth past the lips of a pathological liar needs a few tricks in their hat. We are finally getting a glimpse of a man who can do just that as he is well equipped with lots of ammo in his fedora or make that sombrero. He is the exact opposite of L.Kirk Nurmi who has frazzled our nerves for eight days in succession. Nurmi seemed to work in slow motion, make that beyond slow. What a breath of fresh air to have a prosecutor, small in stature, agile, and very professional in all aspects. Defense lawyers despise Martinez and we are about to get to see why.
When the trial began on Thursday, Jodi appeared to be snoozing or meditating as she sat in the witness box, her eyes closed and there was no escape. Once the jurors were summoned and seated, along came…
The Magic Juan!
The fireworks began…”look at the picture of your dumb sister”…”my sister is not dumb”…”remember the sextape you recorded of you and Mr Alexander?” …”I said she was dumb and stupid”…”did I ask you if she was stupid?”…
In rapid succession, Martinez fired the questions at Jodi as he did his ‘courting’ dance in front of her. Immediately, Jodi went into a ‘cocky’ defensive mode, Jennifer Willmott stared at Jodi, mouth agape, Nurmi, glared and appeared to be very agitated as he watched his meticulous house of cards being slowly dismantled. Even Judge Stevens cast a concerned glance towards the defendant.
What did my heart good was watching as Travis’ younger sister was sneaking ‘sheepish grins’ in Jodi’s direction. Yes, it was now time to turn the tables.
Here are a few pics. I will let them speak for themselves.
