  5. CanadaCarol posted a link to a video re lying for the lord on the morning page. It explains how these people can just out and out LIE …just listen to the FIRST words of the video! The guy says something like…” If I don’t want to answer the question someone asks I answer the question they SHOULD have asked” WTF? THAT would explain the diarrhea of lies that continue to continue to come out of their mouths.

    Bishop agrees that Travis Alexander came to talk to him about marrying two different women, first Deanna Reid, then Linda Ballard.

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 30s30 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Now Nurmi is saying TA wanted to marry two women very close in time to each other #jodiarias #3tvarias

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 21s21 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Nurmi says so after Linda leaves TA, he then begins dating Deanna Reid after she came back from her mission #jodiarias #3tvarias

  18. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 14s14 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop admits he is close to Deanna Reid and he learned during trial she had a sexual relationship with TA #jodiarias #3tvarias

  19. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 36s36 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi is getting the Bishop to admit oral sex was a transgression if happened #jodiarias #3tvarias

  20. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 9s10 seconds ago

    Nurmi is ramming home every kind of sexual penetration and asking if they are transgressions. “Is anal sex less of a transgression?” he asks

  21. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 47s48 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi is going around & around on penile vag intercourse, anal sex, oral sex etc. asking if these are less of a transgression #jodiarias

  22. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 9s10 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi- If someone is having sex do they become less desirable as a partner Parker- I can’t answer that #jodiarias #3tvarias

  23. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 57s57 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi- Is Deanna Reid married with children? Parker- No #jodiarias #3tvarias

  24. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 25s25 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi is asking if there is a difference between one time transgression and two times #jodiarias #3tvarias

  25. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 38s39 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Parker- It depends on the repenting #jodiarias #3tvarias

  26. one time….oops my bad…..two times…..oops my bad…..three times….oops my bad…..to infinity…..oops my bad…..really???

    • of course there is a difference between a one time mistake and multiple repeated offenses purposefully done and purposefully hidden from the bishop and others….but you can never hide anything from God who is all knowing and all powerful……

    • So, when his Bishop punished him the first time about having sex what did TA not understand and sinned again? He either was a slow learner or he didn’t give a SHIT about Mormon rules.
      Yep, I’m inclined to believe it’s the secind 😉
      So much for TA the Saint, whose Mormon friends ran to defend.

  27. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 17s17 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Now Nurmi is bringing up all the different kinds of sex TA and JA had long term. He wants the Bishop to answer what he would do to them

  28. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 14s15 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop says they would have to discuss with the Bishop and they would discuss what to do #jodiarias #3tvarias

  29. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 30s31 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi wants the Bishop to say TA should have been disciplined harsher for doing this more than once #jodiarias #3tvarias

  30. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 13s14 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop says probation could happen, they can’t give a message or take sacrament..could even be ex communicated #jodiarias #3tvarias

  31. Mike Watkiss ‏@mikewatkiss3tv 48s49 seconds ago

    Nurmi questioning Parker if someone “transgressed” sexually more than once would punishment be more severe-Parker says “yes” #jodiarias

  32. Again we have an impeachment of BP in his testimony about TA supposedly not being there at his house at the same time as witness #1 – the email correspondence proves that TA was living there at the same time as witness # 1 – again the email statements are more accurate and pristine for credibility ….now that BP has an attorney on hand his testimony is contradicting earlier statements/testimony his credibility has been ruined IMHO

  33. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 16s17 seconds ago

    Nurmi is bringing up all of the sexual behavior Alexander is alleged to have participated in with various women and asking about punishment.

  34. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 22s22 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi- “let’s say there is this guy who talks sexually 2 married women, watches porn, dates more than 1 woman at a time…#jodiarias

  35. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 40s40 seconds ago

    Then Nurmi brings up the low points of the tape: tying Jodi to a tree to sodomize, bragging about masturbation, the 12-yr-old girl’s orgasm.

  36. I had to add this one in – too funny.. hater is sad:

    Wild About Trial ‏@WildAboutTrial 1m1 minute ago

    Unfortunately jurors are taking notes right now. #jodiarias

  37. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 48s48 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    N- What would happen to them? Parker- He would be called into the Bishop and he would determine a strict probation #jodiarias #3tvarias

  38. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 27s27 seconds ago

    Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 42s43 seconds ago

  41. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 13s14 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Juan- U were asked over & over if having a lawyer cause you to change your story at this depo Juan is putting it on the overhead #jodiarias

  43. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 13s14 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Ques- Has anyone within your church advised you to hold back info? It was Nurmi that asked that Parker responds NO #jodiarias #3tvarias

  44. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 31s32 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Next depo question- Does the name of the bride of Witness #1 ring a bell? Parker- Yes #jodiarias #3tvarias

  47. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 32s32 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Who is she? Parker- She moved after Travis moved out, she moved #jodiarias #3tvarias

  48. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 14s15 seconds ago

    Juan is dissecting initial interview between DT & Bishop showing Bishop wasn’t dishonest. Just not asked specific questions. #jodiarias

    There’s that selective answer what you want the question to be rationale. Mormon must be!

  51. Oh man all these idiot tweeters giving Michael Keifer hell for being on Jodi’s side when all he is doing is reporting what is said without embellishments.

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 1m1 minute ago Phoenix, AZ
    Juan says what about the woman that is getting baptized having anal sex, oral, vag sex? Is there a diff b/t male and female in the church?

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 54s54 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Parker responds. “No it needs to be reported” #jodiarias #3tvarias

  54. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 24s25 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Juan admitted an email between Deanna Reid and TA and Nurmi wants to approach #jodiarias #3tvarias

  55. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 1m1 minute ago Phoenix, AZ

    The question was asked in the depo about Deanna and TA emailing from the Bishops home computer #jodiarias #3tvarias

  56. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 15s16 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    .the Bishop said TA went to friends houses a lot and could have emailed from there #jodiarias #3tvarias

  57. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 15s16 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop was just saying how people can communicate while one is away on a mission in general #jodiarias #3tvarias

  58. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 48s48 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    The Bishop said when answering Witness #1 in the email he just answered the question with no research. #jodiarias #3tvarias

  59. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 14s14 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop has no researched and used Deanna’s mission as a pinpoint, his daughter going back to BYU, also the bride to be coming to live w/him

  60. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 39s40 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    He said he would never let another male live there while she was there in his home…but his son lived there #jodiarias #3tvarias

  61. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 53s54 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Witness #1 never lived at the Bishops home while the bride to be was there #jodiarias #3tvarias

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 27s27 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    But he did live there while the pop ups happened and he brought it to the Bishops attention #jodiarias #3tvarias

  62. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 39s39 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Juan- Describe the pop ups Parker-scantily dressed lady u might see in a catalog What’s on TV is worse. He is saying like a JC Penny’s ad

    Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 24s25 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    3 sources told Parker Jake caused the pop ups 1 was Jakes cousin the other Bishops son #jodiarias #3tvarias

  63. I have a hmmm about SKY being in court day with this Bishop…. Is she afraid Parker is going to say something about her boys and TA? Another chapter for their book? Trying to get all the information to Deanna? Remember HUGHES lived in CA during this time.

    They ALL need to go to HELL…. an innocent person is sitting behind bars while these corrupt folks walk the streets.

    I still believe Chris and Sky are involved with TA death and matching Jodi’s story…. there is no way in hell she could of done all that to TA by herself even with adrenaline rush in that short amount of time….

  64. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 41s41 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Lawyers, judge, Alexander Family, and Jodi just went into chambers #jodiarias #3tvarias

    • I would think if there are any on the jury in their 20’s or 30’s not religious, they are not buying into the BS… I noted the younger ages because they seem to me less devoted in 2015….

      They could also think, this trial needs to END TODAY, because they are tried of listening to all the BS….

  65. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 11s11 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

  68. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 48s49 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ
    Looks like some of the emails don’t contain to’s, from’s etc & so it looks like some of the convo is copied and pasted #jodiarias #3tvarias

    Martinez showing emails from 2013 between Parker and witness 1. He points out the “sent” lines at the top — one does not have that line.

    Bishop says Witness #1 was good with computers but he never tried to fix the pop ups #jodiarias #3tvarias

  70. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 28s29 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Bishop didn’t think TA and witness #1 were friends. They never hung out and Bishop doesn’t even know if they knew each other #jodiarias

    • This bishop is a wordsmith and playing the semantics game “didn’t think TA and witness #1 were friends” “doesn’t know if they knew each other” = WORTHLESS TESTIMONY THAT DOES NOT CANCEL OUT YOUR PREVIOUS TESTIMONY THAT THEY DID KNOW EACH OTHER !!!!! Got it, I’m talking to you, Bishop……….AND YOUR EMAIL CONVO THAT STATES CLEARLY THAT TA LIVED THERE AT YOUR HOUSE AT THE SAME TIME AS WITNESS #1 so clearly they knew each other……YOU ARE NOT CREDIBLE AND NOT TO BE BELIEVED IMHO !!!!!!!!!!

  71. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 27s27 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

  79. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 19s20 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Does the church track that? No #jodiarias #3tvarias

  80. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 22s23 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    7- Do they sign an agreement? No
    6- Do witnesses have to go to church first before speaking to lawyers? Parker- No #jodiarias #3tvarias

  81. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 15s16 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Juan wrapped up by asking if the Bishop was a spokesman for the church #jodiarias #3tvarias He said NO

  82. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 23s24 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi is back asking about transgressions #jodiarias #3tvarias

  83. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 15s16 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi wants it brought out that Jodi having anal and oral and vaginal was ok cause she is a convert but TA deserved way worse. #jodiarias

    • Yes, he DID deserve worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was the one who converted Jodi, he was the one Jodi looked up to and turned to for guidance when it came to church-related matters.
      So, shut up Jen and stop with your oozing sarcasm!

  84. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 26s27 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi says TA was “lying to the lord” #jodiarias #3tvarias

  85. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 34s34 seconds ago

    Nurmi asks if a sexual transgressor who performs baptisms is lying to The Lord. #jodiarias

  86. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 41s42 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Nurmi- Is the integrity of the church served when a returned missionary, member of the church performing sexual transgressions over and over

  87. Jen’s Trial Diaries ‏@TrialDiariesJ 13s13 seconds ago Phoenix, AZ

    Parker- The person should be approved by Bishop and that’s between them #jodiarias #3tvarias

  88. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 14s15 seconds ago

    Nurmi repeatedly asks if having a sexual transgressor perform baptisms affects integrity of church. Doesn’t help, Parker says.

  89. Michael Kiefer ‏@michaelbkiefer 12s12 seconds ago

    “Sure doesn’t,” Nurmi says. That’s it for today. Jury dismissed. Back tomorrow at ten. #jodiarias

  90. Not sure what the jury was getting at with the questions they asked other than can you trust a 74 year old man’s memory without actual proof.

  91. he was 52 in 1993 when this was published.. that was 22 years ago :D. Vernon Parker, 52, Woodcrest Ward, Riverside California West Stake; to serve in Riverside California and Victorville California regions; former multi-region director of public affairs, stake president and counselor, bishop, Young Men president, deacons quorum adviser, and Scoutmaster; corporate accounting manager; earned bachelor’s degree from Weber State University and master’s degree from the University of Utah; born in Montpelier, Idaho; married Marsha Eunice Curtis.

  92. The jurors questions looked to me like they were trying to glean more information to determine credibility of the witness.

  93. Okay as I see it – BP was impeached on his testimony that Deanna did not know witness #1 bc he testified this morning that she did know him – then apparently this afternoon he backed off that testimony – conclusion is that he is NOT credible and not to be believed – Also BP was impeached on his testimony about this Jake guy who was already married in Nov 1999 before any of this stuff about the porn was involved and before witness # 1 lived there along with TA living there at the same time…..the fact that the deposition was taken in a lawyer’s office in Phoenix is typical and of no relevance and it is of no relevance that JM was not present he does not need to be present – BP was sworn and under oath during his deposition and you must take his previous depo testimony and his written email to witness # 1 as more credible and pristine…he has now shown himself to have a motive to not tell the truth about what happened here… being friends with Deanna’s dad and his own son involved as one of the ones who supposedly fingered Jake as the one who was looking at the porn…..NOT CREDIBLE, PERIOD !!!!

    • Can witness & Prosecutor meet up for tea or whatever? while the court is in recess? Because then Martinez could tell him (the Bishop in this instance) what questions he’s going to put to him, while at the same time tell the witness (this one, the Bishop) the answers to give back to the jury/court. I would not be surprised if this happens in an Arizona case, during a court recess.

  94. Yes, some of these people like Jake and witness #1 need to come in and tell the true facts …..wild horses wouldn’t be able to keep me away if I was a witness and knew the truth……..

    • BB witness one lives in New Zealand. I know what that air fair cost. Not going to happen. I keep saying Skype his testimony.
      They let crazy Abe testify over the phone. Not sure where Jake lives.

          • I certainly hope not. His credibility is being called into question and he needs to stand up for himself and his own reputation………..

            • Due to the fact that we can only go by what is tweeted I find it odd that BP was getting all mixed up. He had how many days to get it straight. If he had any health issues JM would not have called him.

              • Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…..when you are not being forthcoming and having to think on the fly you tend to get confused and you conveniently forget your previous testimony and statements……….

                • BB we must have grown up in the same way. You don’t know how many times I have said that to people. Oh the webs..and for whom and why?? Good heavens Travis is dead for the love of God.

  95. I say it again, the Bishop’s testimony did not help the prosecution. He was inconsistent, inaccurate, could be accused of deceit – cannot confirm who lived there or when, who used computer or when, porno evidence inconsistent. How does this fit into mitigation testimony? Credibility – much has been said about Jodi’s ability to lie, well we see the other side of the story now and how can you send someone to die knowing the truth is somewhere but you haven’t been able to put your finger on it.

    • Agreed. The Bishop’s testimony was more than inconsistent, he downright changed his testimony from his deposition to his appearance at the trial today on many significant points…..looking stumped when told by KN that Jake was married in Nov 1999 ……oops……guess he really wasn’t there when the porn was discovered on the computer afterall……..his oops again when he states in an email to witness #1 that it was TA who was living in the room across from witness # 1 so that they did indeed live in his house at the same time and they did know each other…….his semantics games with the “I think…” “I don’t know…..” “I didn’t see….” being very specific in those word choices so that he appears to be denying the truth but in reality his testimony on those points did not change or abrogate his prior deposition testimony or his prior written statements that state just the opposite…all in all he is not to be believed as he has NO CREDIBILITY WHATSOEVER……..BISHOP OR NOT !!! This was JM’s attempt to rebutt the affidavit provided to DT sworn to under penalty of perjury….These witnesses IMHO have sacrificed their souls in their testimony……….They will answer to God….every knee shall bow every tongue shall confess……..

    • I agree with Judy, the bishop s testimony is inconsistent. This should help the defense. However,
      I think in the wider scheme of things he is a miner player.All this happened years before he met
      Jodi.

      I think DeMarte s will be much more important. If the defense can appropriately cross exam her, I
      think it will carry more weight with jury.Demarte has already established Jodi has border line personality
      disorder. It is my guess now that the pros will try her to say well, this is no big deal. That
      simply is not true. BLD is a serious disorder.

    February 2, 2015 at 10:08 am ……..Katie Conner@KatieJConner

    Do you remember testifying Travis Alexander lived with you for 6-9 months? Bishop: Yes, but I went back and looked at my RECORDS.

    Uhmm …..what records? Ones you don’t keep?

    BAM!! bwhahaa

    • You are sooooo good, Jade !! Here’s hoping that the juror that asked those questions about how many people can live with you? and are there any records….? took a big note of the two totally opposite answers…he is so caught with the false answers and changing answers to suit the immediate needs before him…….NO CREDIBILITY, PERIOD !!!! All credibility should now rightfully go to witness #1’s sworn affidavit. Deanna, likewise has NO CREDIBILITY, PERIOD!!! The bishop himself confirmed that she did indeed know witness #1………ARE YOU LISTENING, JURORS??????

    • Hard not of known someone living in the PARKER residents as the home only has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and it’s a ranch style home …. even if the basement is finished you would still pass each other in the kitchen or bathrooms…..

    Question: Does the church track that? Answer: No.
    Question: Are you a spokesman for the church? Answer: No.

    Nurmi Follow-up:

    Nurmi is asking Parker about the different kinds of LDS priesthood.

    Question: If someone came to you and said they had an interest in porn, that is something you couldn’t share with us, is that right? Answer: I guess so, but it has never happened.
    Question: Is a sexual transgressor who performs baptisms lying to the Lord?
    Question: Is the integrity of the church served, when a returned missionary, member of the church, is performing sexual transgressions over and over?
    Question: Should TA have been able to perform baptisms? Answer: The person should be approved by Bishop and that’s between them.
    Question: Does having a sexual transgressor performing baptisms affect integrity of church? Answer: Doesn’t help.

    Some of the answers to Nurmi’s follow-up questions weren’t tweeted.

      • His answer “I’m not aware of that” is one of those meaningless answers meant to deceive. He actually doesn’t deny the truth which is of course YES they take action against those who damage the church’s integrity, but what he does do is play the semantics game again and give a non answer. His answer “I’m not aware of that” is meaningless and does NOT answer the question at all. It is a deceptive answer meant to deceive the jury. I hope the jury is smarter that that………
