The jury is just in and John Couey is found guilty on all counts of the murder of Jessica Lunsford.
(1) Compare Couey’s drug emaciated skeleton at arrest, to his fat and bloated body sitting at the defense table today. Getting fat on the public dole takes on a whole new meaning.
(2) The Judge allowed Couey to “color” in a child’s coloring book during the trial, in full sight of the Jury. This man has no history of “coloring” and everyone knows it – and even if he did, how about imposing a bit of court discipline on the defendant. What a disgusting attempt to prejudice a jury. It didn’t work – but it might next time.
(3) “Talk” is that there may be a mistrial because Jessica’s father, Mark Lunsford, “glared” at Couey throughout the trial – thus prejudicing the jury. More “talk” is that Mr. Lunsford’s glare will not be contested because the Supreme Court has already rendered a similar case (family wore buttons with a photo of the murdered child during the trial) ridiculous. Any attempt for mistrial will be monetarily motivated by Couey’s attorneys – and cannot have anything to do with the facts. What a disgrace to, by and for the legal profession if this scam is perpetrated.
