RJ's situation is truly sad. She is in desperate need of her own strong legal counsel. It is apparent that Crump, the Martins, ABC, and probably the State are more than willing use her with little regard for her welfare. She admitted to several lies under oath in open court today. She will find it very difficult to return to her peers at school. Further, the defense has no choice but to continue to impeach her.

What makes you believe this? Glancing through her social media as provided by Jeralyn in her blog post, it's pretty obvious she doesn't care about anything in particular, worse, the whole thing is nothing but a joke to her. Her own testimony indicates that, to say nothing of the social media.

I also don't believe she's in school, she may have attended a few college classes. But that's my own opinion.

RATL has streetlights.

You may have noticed that when the lawyers want to make the point of how dark it was in the area where TM was shot, they often ask the witness if there were any streetlights or 'pole lights' in that backyard area between the buildings.
I am surprised that the prosecution also emphasized that.  I wonder why the cut through was so dark even though there seems to be a light across TTL at its start.  I thought Martin saw Zimmerman closeup at the clubhouse.  Is that well lit at night?

This photo is my guess at the effect of the TTL streetlight on the cut-through.

There is another streetlight on RVC. I haven't tried to estimate its effect.

Some time ago I did a series of posts on the differences between the 3/19/12 Crump interview and the 4/2 SAO interview. The first post has links.

It was shortly after this that ABC released a 5-minute clip of a previously unknown part of the 3/19 interview. I did another post to include it in the comparative analysis.

Her father is from the Dominican Republic and her mother is from Haiti. West asked her what grade she would be in in the fall and she said 12th grade, I think. So, that would mean she was held back a grade

Haitians immigrate to the DR. Her French last name would indicate that her Father is most likely of Haitian descent. Not that its relevant to anything.. I was 17 when I entered 12th grade.  She's 2 years behind

I was sort of hoping she was serious when she said she wasn't coming back. This trial needs some drama.

Bernie has objected twice.

West is asking about the 3/19 letter to Sybrina. He is establishing when lawyers on both sides learned of it.

The letter is being entered into evidence.

Bernie asked for a sidebar. He didn't object to entering the letter in evidence. I think he is objecting to West asking any questions about it.

ETA: Looks like Tracy is asleep.

West gave RJ the letter.

The friend who helped her write the letter is Francine Surv (sp?)

RJ says she can't read cursive.

RJ signed the letter 'Diamond Eugene'.

Choppy sound, Francine Cerf helped her with the letter?

Francine Surt (phonetic spelling) wrote the letter. It's becoming obvious that Ms. Jeantel is functionally illiterate. She asserts she "doesn't read cursive." She asserts she can read typewritten words but sounds unsure.

She can read the date.

West is reading the letter.

Bernie objects to an error. West offered to let Bernie read it. He declined. West continues to read.
