Looks like he has a fresh hair cut, maybe a hair weave? and some hair coloring added! Nothing, however, detracts from the ugliness of his face with all those boil like things. Yuck!

Actually, my nose is upturned over the judge's most liberal appearance.Ok. I got over the hair color she is sporting and frowned over the necklace but it is disrespectful how she is wearing the judicial robes as a "shawl" over her flimsy evening-wear sleeves....wow. I feel so old and jaded....

Several potential jurors dismissed. They said they could NOT just base decision on testimony. Some have strong feelings about #BobBashara

Amy Lange:
Jury selection continues today - no opening statements until Tuesday but a hearing is scheduled for 2:30 Friday regarding whether or not the defense can call Joseph Gentz as a witness - remember he had a plea deal where he was supposed to testify against Bob Bashara - but prosecution did not list him in their witness list they read on Wednesday. Defense team DID list Gentz as THEIR witness! Judge says they will hash that out Friday at 2:30...

Amy Lange:
Jury is seated - opening statements Tuesday at 9am - we will be live-streaming that at myfoxdetroit.com
Each side gets 45 minutes.
HOWEVER, before we get to opening statements in the trial of Bob Bashara - the court will take up the matter of Joseph Gentz - will the handyman turned alleged hitman testify? And if so - for whom?
That hearing scheduled for 2:30 Friday - we will livestream it as well at myfoxdetroit.com
Also - unfortunately - we will not be able to livestream the trial so we will keep you updated here and on twitter.
Follow me @langeamyfox2
And catch my story with Bashara's defense team on Fox 2 News at 5 TONIGHT!
Thanks!!

Apparently, there is a hearing at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, this afternoon, to discuss if Joe Gentz is going to testify.  It sounds like he doesn't want to, especially if it's testifying for the defense.

wxyz.com and clickondetroit.com are both saying they will broadcast the hearing live, even though they don't yet have live-streaming links posted yet.

I will post them as soon as I see them.

Here is vid of Joe Gentz in court refusing to testify.
He stated he had understood his testimony would shorten his (prior pleading of guilty of murder) to maybe 9 years in prison. He has found out different and feels he has been lied to.

Why is he or was he to testify for the defense?
Was this just a prelim defense questioning of him like a deposition in live court????

That would be odd as a jury has been sworn in and depos are usually taken BEFORE a jury is sworn.

AD, need your help on this!!!

From link I just posted above:
http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/26757260/bashara-and-gentz-in-court

" ..... Joseph Gentz was in court Friday afternoon and it was determined he will not testify in the trial of Bob Bashara.

Transcripts released today - of a September 26 hearing not originally revealed to the media - show Joseph Gentz wanted to withdraw his guilty plea in the death of Jane Bashara.

According to the transcript, Gentz believed he was promised, not on the record, that his sentence would be lowered to no more than five years if he were to testify against Bashara. He is currently serving time for pleading guilty to second degree murder in the death of Jane Bashara in exchange for his testimony against Bashara. He was sentenced to 17 to 28 years.

It was revealed during testimony that day that Gentz incriminated himself in the death of Jane Bashara during an interrogation with Grosse Pointe Park Police but was not immediately given a lawyer despite asking for one during the interrogation. Gentz's attorney says he went to the police department with two friends in the early morning hours of January 31, 2012, to seek safety from threats from Bob Bashara.

Gentz maintains Mr. Bashara held a gun to his head.

Judge Vonda Evans denied Gentz's motion to withdraw his guilty plea.

Gentz then asks, "I don't have to testify either, right?"

The issue that was taken up in court 2:30 Friday.

The prosecution has not listed Gentz as a witness for them in the Bashara trial but the defense has called him the number one witness for the defense......"

Bashara's former handyman won't testify in court

Gina Damron, Detroit Free Press 5:29 p.m. EDT October 10, 2014


Gentz's decision means prosecutors could withdraw the plea and reinstate the charge of first-degree murder.

...Earlier this week, while reading the names of defense witnesses to prospective jurors in Bashara's trial, the defense listed Gentz.

Now, the defense plans to file a motion asking the court for a finding that Gentz is not available to testify, said Michael McCarthy, one of the attorneys representing Bashara.

"If that finding is made, then under the rules of evidence certain things that he said in the past can be admitted into evidence," McCarthy said.

At a hearing following Gentz's hearing, Evans told attorneys that, during opening statements in Bashara's trial on Tuesday, they can't say Gentz will testify.

Gentz refuses to testify in Bashara murder trial

October 13, 2014

In order for both legal teams to use previous statements made by Gentz during the trial — such as statements to police — Evans said they would need to receive an order from the court stating that Gentz was unavailable to testify. McCarthy said he would file an emergency motion for that purpose. At press time, Evans had scheduled a hearing on that motion for 9 a.m. Oct. 14 — the day Bashara’s murder trial was scheduled to start.

“We’re going to go forward (with the trial) on Tuesday,” said Evans, adding that they might start trial proceedings a little later in the day, possibly at noon.

Hmmmm....
" ... .....As officials began investigating her murder, they say they learned Bob had a sex dungeon in the basement of a bar and was known as "Master Bob". A local Dominatrix told FOX 2 in 2012 that local S&M insiders were convinced Gentz was Bashara's 'sex slave'....."

Doubt it but it could explain why he know refuses to testify against BB.

Edit: I am tired so sloppy with errors. Embarassed

I read a tweet saying that the lawyers haven't shown up yet.  Supposedly, there's a hearing first about Gentz.

I apologize in advance if I'm not in Chat for opening statements.  The player they are using to live-stream is not working right with my setup (if I view the video and click to type in Chat, I lose my video window).

Judge is done rambling on in a scolding voice to the jury/court re initial jury instructions. I don't like her liberal and relaxed attitude in court while she snaps out her words. Makes it sound rather bossy. Oh well. I just get to watch....State has 145 m to present; 10 m break; then def has 145 m.

State has started with vid of BB. It has very poor quality here. Hope better in court.

You will not hear Mr Bashara say he wanted his wife killed because he wanted BDSM lifestyle over wife. @Local4News #murdertrial
0 replies
Hank Winchester @HankLocal4 · 24m 24 minutes ago

Defense: BDSM lifestyle & sex not motive for murder. They claim Jane knew Bob was "kinky" & was ok with it. @Local4News #BobBashara

This is the day BobBashara has been waiting for. Gentz killed Jane not Bob @Local4News #BobBashara

DETROIT, MI -- A photo of Jane Bashara's lifeless body appeared on an overhead screen in the courtroom of Wayne County Circuit Judge Vonda Evans Tuesday.
