    The defense tried incredibly hard to shred the victim in this case, didn't they? And "everyone" was lying....

    I get that this is their job? But boy, that was hard to read. Thank goodness for that recording.

    @Lily @SheWhoMustNotBeNamed and ALL that took the time to read about this trial, Thank you so much for taking the time to ensure Justice for Deanna, who was not perfect, by any means, but who is?

    This was an important case for the Dallas Area and for victims of Domestic Violence.
    A guilty verdict probably would not have happened if it hadn't been for that recording.
    I just hope the just sentencing will be life without parole when they start to look at sentencing.
    I saw a reporter say that he could get 5-99 years. Really? Others said automatic life.
    Justice~ That is all her family wants. With a true Sentence.

    Deanna wanted to be a survivor~ May She Now Rest in Peace.

    5 hours ago, the penalty phase of this trial began.
    CMDP could receive 5-99 years.

    They started the morning with his prior arrests and convictions.
    Then they talked a bit about a tattoo that he got while he was in jail.
    Prosecution wants to say it's Deanna in flames crying.
    Defense says its of a Rapper and showed a image side by side... to me it does look like that rapper.

    Daughter of Deanna Cook on stand looking straight at Patrick. She is a high school sophomore now. She found in her mother in the bathtub.

    To the Jury:

    #DeannaCook's daughter, Aniya Williams, tells jury how she is in 10th grade, plays volleyball & track. Her sister is going to graduate soon.

    The Prosecution rested and then it was time for the Defense:

    [​IMG]Rebecca Lopez ‏@rlopezwfaa 4h4 hours ago
    We seem to always be waiting for the defense attorney, Roger Lennox in this case. We have been in recess 40 min. waiting for him to start.
    [​IMG]Rebecca Lopez ‏@rlopezwfaa 4h4 hours ago
    Judge Biringham asking Lennox co-counsel to go find him.

    CMDP's mother takes the stand and tells all about her baby boy.
    His likes, interests, the fact she whooped his arse when he needed it.
    He was just a normal kid and then the school wanted him on Ritalin.
    She takes him off cause it made him different.
    Talks about him, was impacted after his 2 year old nephew accidentally hanged himself with Venetian blind cord.

    Has kids of his own....

    This statement!! From his mother:
    "My relationship was good with Delvecchio. Never had trouble with him unless I get into his business."

    85 years. Good. He won't live to see it.
    Now hopefully there's no parole involved in there.

    After 30 years, which really irks me. However the pictures of Deanna's family speaks volumes. They again today, put on the purple tape over their mouths for Domestic Violence.
    Other pictures show them smiling. For a change they had smiles on their faces.
