Mark Geragos, What A Scumbag

The Peterson jury is a total mess. Another juror, the foreman, was dismissed today.

http://www.courttv.com/trials/peterson/111004_ctv.html

Check out what Geragos had on a property he owns near the courthouse. I eat my words if he wasn't responsible for/aware of this (not really, he's still a scumbag ) Seriously, Laci's mother complained about his joking and laughing during the trial. That was bad enough. How insensitive and cruel..

There was a dummy in the boat that was supposed to be Laci I guess, w/ weights tied on the limbs

From the Court TV blog

Defense lawyers Mark Geragos and Pat Harris arrive at court and go straight into judge's chambers. Could it be about last night's appearance of the defense boat replica right near the courthouse? Turns out the parking lot where the boat drew media cameras in a late-night frenzy is owned by Geragos. Geragos bought the single-story office building at 749 Brewster Ave. in Redwood City in July 2004 for $1.75 million, according to the San Mateo County Recorder's Office. If Geragos is sanctioned by the judge for leaving the boat in plain sight during deliberations, the defense lawyer may well complain the media was trespassing on his property. —Harriet Ryan & Bryan Lavietes


I can't wait to hear his excuse for this one

Can somebody tell my why this case gets national attention, but yesterday when a 10 and 13 year old were shot in Richmond that's just petty?

Its still out there as far as I know and its covered with signs telling Geraros what a piece of he is

I can't believe the judge is tolerating this. How completely disrespectful.

Because the media can only cover one case at a time. So they had to pick and choose between all the women killed by their husbands and cover this one. Plus, it's in California and there's more media that live there and won't have to charge the company with hotel room stays.

The scary thing I'm not sure if that's sarcastic or not.

The same with my previous post.


Says something about the media, doesn't it?

I think it gets so much attention U2democrat because she was a young, pregnant woman and her husband is a scumbag (well, he is in my opinion). Certainly all murders are worthy of sympathy and attention, but unfortunately the media chooses to focus mostly on cases like this. I think it's the element of-well, it happened to a "normal" couple that people can perhaps relate to.

The number one cause of death for pregnant women is homicide.

It's just great that people like Scott can afford to hire people like Geragos (well, his parents can) . My heart goes out to Laci's family.

What is wrong w/ that judge-is he under Geragos' spell the way Ito was under Cochran's? Something has to be done about this disgrace.

It just drives me nuts when the media picks up one seemingly random case of thousands, perhaps millions, latches on to it when absolutely no one i know seems to care.

It is the same mechanism whereby some television dramas succeed and others fail. People are killed every day, but the news will only focus on the "sexy" stories.....

I care about this case, I think it's so tragic

It's scary to think about marrying someone and having him turn out to be this way . I believe he murdered Laci and Connor, but even if one doesn't believe that, there is still his lying and cheating - cheating on his pregnant wife. When asked by a friend how he felt about the pregnancy, he replied "I was hoping for infertility"

I care that so many women are beaten and/or killed by their husbands/boyfriends

I just saw a picture of his little stunt on Yahoo-no way would I ever post it. It made me ill, and very angry

Yes it is a tragic case, but I get so sick of hearing about it all the time. Especially living here in Richmond, which as something like the #1 or 2 crime rate in the country. I hear more horrifying stories than this one every day.

If there were no Amber Frey, this story would have disappeared months ago.

"The alternate who replaced the ousted juror is a retiree with a personal connection to the defendant. His future son-in-law bought a San Luis Obispo restaurant once owned by Peterson and his wife, Laci, and worked for both for six weeks."

Is that even legal...?
