Following on from another very successful day for Team Jodi, here’s a list of the 19 jurors questions asked & answered by Janeen DeMarte from trial day 50:
Q1: How many forensic cases have you worked on?
Q2: How many times have you testified based on your evaluations?
Q3: How many cases involved abuse?
Q4: Hypothetically, if a person suffered PTSD because of a bear attack while hiking, would you throw out their PDS test if they lied and said it was a tiger?
Q5: Would the person be answering the questions the same, regardless of whether they called the animal a bear or a tiger?
Q6: Do you believe absolutely that it is possible to remain purely unbiased in an evaluation once compassion creeps in?
Q7: What types of people are at risk for developing or having Borderline Personality Disorder?
Q8: In the interview Jodi gave, where she stated – “Mark my words, no jury will ever convict me” – do you feel that is part of a Borderline Personality Disorder, especially since she is smiling when she said it?
Q9: Wouldn’t taking the camera, rather than leaving it, show more organizational thinking capabilities?
Q10: When asked by the defense about efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, you stated you had other examples for this category that did not involve TA. Can you share those examples?
Q11: Do you think deleting pictures from a camera, and then washing that camera is an attempt to remove or destroy evidence?
Q12: If you had not seen pictures proving that the evidence (photos) was recovered, given your knowledge of cameras, would you have viewed this as an effective attempt to destroy evidence?
Q13: In your opinion, is it normal for a person who is incarcerated to be depressed and have anxiety?
Q14: Do you consider Jodi stabbing, shooting & slitting TA’s throat to be a traumatic event?
Q15: You said you administered the TSI to Jodi because Dr Karp had done the same… but you did not re-administer other tests that Dr Karp or Dr Samuels had given. Can you explain why?
Q16: Do you know what the differences are between the TSI 1 versus the TSI 2?
Q17: Regarding the PDS answer sheet – exhibit #555 – do you know who’s handwriting is on the PDS answer sheet?
Q18: Do you see any issues with Dr Samuels filling out the answer sheet and possibly summarizing the written answers on section #2?
Q19: Does it cause any concern for you regarding the validity of the test, that the written answers appear to be answered by someone who is familiar with psychological verbiage and not in layman’s verbiage?
And here’s the video covering all the questions & answers, together with the state & defense follow-ups:
