James Dean - Mannequin


Since no one's posted here in awhile...

I would just like to say I'm still calling them CourtTV and I'm still offended that they changed their name to something that looks like text speak.

Subject: Logo & I, Detective

I wanted to follow up on Doris S.'s question in the recent e-newsletter I received on regards to the new Court TV logo. I have wondered ever since the new logo appeared, what exactly it is supposed to represent. Others and myself are curious, and the closest thing I can come up with is that it is a lane from a DNA electrophoresis tray. Am I correct on this?

Also, something else came to my mind while typing this up - will the show I, Detective ever come back on? I know it's aired every once in a while right now, but they seem to be re-runs. I enjoyed how interactive that show was on solving a case, especially when it some of the episodes were geared more towards law enforcement procedures than forensics, as I'm going into law enforcement right now.

Thank you!

New Court TV Logo

Has anyone else seen the new logo for Court TV?

I'm trying to determine if it's supposed to represent a lane from a DNA electrophoresis test.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Teacher accused of having sex with student wants a trial

Debra Lafave, 24, will claim insanity during her trial, according to her attorney.

TAMPA (AP) — A middle-school reading teacher whose sexual liaisons with a 14-year-old student made tabloid headlines broke off plea negotiations with prosecutors and will claim insanity at a December trial, her attorney said today.

Debra Lafave, 24, was under such emotional stress that she didn't know right from wrong when she had sex with a 14-year-old student numerous times in June 2004, attorney John Fitzgibbons said after a brief court hearing. A Dec. 5 trial date was set.

Fitzgibbons said plea bargaining broke down because prosecutors wanted too much prison time for Lafave, who appeared in court today but did not speak.

"To place an attractive young woman in that kind of hell hole is like putting a piece of raw meat in with the lions," said Fitzgibbons, who wouldn't talk about details of the negotiations. "I'm not sure she would survive." He said he had hoped to settle the case with a plea agreement, "not only for Debbie's sake but for the young man's sake."

A state attorney's office spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Judge Wayne Timmerman agreed to appoint two mental health professionals to evaluate Lafave, who Fitzgibbons said would claim she is not guilty by reason of insanity.

"What teacher in her right mind would do something like this?" Fitzgibbons said.

She is charged with four felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery and one count of lewd and lascivious exhibition. Each carries a maximum 15-year prison term.

Prosecutors have said that a state psychologist already determined Lafave was not insane at the time, while one hired by the defense concluded that she was mentally ill.

The teen told investigators that he and Lafave, a newlywed at the time, got to know each other on their way back from a class trip to SeaWorld Orlando in May 2004.

He said she invited him to her class during detention and ended up taking him to his basketball practices at a recreation center, to get his hair cut and to his house, court records said. The sexual relationship allegedly began on June 3, 2004.

The boy told investigators the two had sex in a classroom at Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace near Tampa, her Riverview town house and once in a vehicle while his 15-year-old cousin drove them around Marion County. He said Lafave told him that her marriage was in trouble and that she was aroused by the fact that having sex with him was not allowed

A hello and a question

Hi everyone.
I didn't know that CourtTV has its own LJ but it looks great. And I hope that you can help me: I've heard on CNN that Nancy Grace has written a new book. But I don't know what it's called and when it's going to be published. Help is needed!!!! Thank you all ^-^

So, what is everyone's favorite show on court tv? My favorite would have to be 'forensic files'.

What does everyone think about the latest news of the Jackson case? One of his bodyguards was talking to the police this week, and saying that, "I'm not going to lie for Jackson any longer. I know where all the bodies are."

Bodies? Does he mean actual bodies, or is it a figure of speech?
