The prosecution hasn't asked the judge to declare her a hostile witness, but she is obviously a reluctant witness that is testifying because she was given immunity, the prosecutor is actually impeaching her testimony.

^^^AD, if this question is too personal I wont be offended if you don't answer it.  You make very astute observations about what is actually taking place in the proceedings that we follow on RC.  So, I was wondering, do you have a background in legal matters or are you just really good at recognizing what the attorneys are attempting to accomplish?  I'm often impressed by your insight.

No, I'm just kidding! :)  I just have an innate interest and a passion for the criminal justice process, court procedures, laws, statutes, etc.; everything that has something to do with the legal system interests me greatly. The judicial system is very complex and fascinating, that is why I spend so much time here following these trials and cases ...:)

I think it is a good thing that we all have in common.  Very Happy

Thanks, AD. I, too, am fascinated by the legal system. I have always been interested in the law and justice. I have only been following trials off-and-on for several years since the Arias circus caught my eye. It often seems that you are so quick to recognize things that I just don't notice. For example, you noted that the prosecution was actually trying to impeach the testimony of Gina Mercado. That went right over my head. Because she was the prosecution's own witness I wasn't looking for the pro's to try to impeach her. I can now see it plain as day and it actually makes sense to do so after she suffered from much "fog" during direct and then remembered all sorts of things on cross. Anyway, thanks for all your insight and for keeping me informed on the Hernandez trial.

Aaron Hernandez's cousin testifies with faulty memory on Day 33 of trial


Photo: Aram Boghosiam/AP/Boston Globe

by Michael McCann
Posted: Tue Mar. 24, 2015

Recalling conversations and observations from years ago can be extremely difficult for everyone. Even what we said and heard last week can be easily forgotten. The human mind is not a recording device, an important acknowledgment before scrutinizing the testimony of a witness in a trial. Nonetheless, jurors in the trial of Aaron Hernandez may wonder about the memory of Hernandez’s cousin, Jennifer Mercado, who testified on Tuesday, the 33rd day in a trial that is nowhere near finishing. Mercado seemed to recall certain parts of the past with precision and yet claimed to have completely forgotten other events, especially those that might incriminate Hernandez.

Bristol County (Mass.) prosecutors believe that Mercado possesses vital information in the case. She is the sister of Tanya Singleton, who allegedly helped co-defendant Ernest Wallace flee to Florida in the days following Lloyd’s murder in North Attleboro (Mass.). Mercado also observed Wallace and co-defendant Carlos Ortiz hours before Lloyd’s murder and, through Hernandez’s fiancée Shayanna Jenkins, Mercado received money from Hernandez while he’s been incarcerated.

~Snipped~

Mercado—no doubt keenly aware that her sister, Tanya Singleton, was jailed for contempt of court—agreed to testify. Whether Mercado was fully truthful is hard to gauge. On one hand, Mercado appeared cooperative during the hours of her testimony and she appeared to make a good faith effort to answer many questions. On the other hand, Mercado answered, “I don’t remember” to numerous questions posed by prosecutor William McCauley. This was particularly true in response to questions about Hernandez’s statements to Mercado.

Prosecutors often regard the response “I don’t remember” and its equivalents “I don’t recall” and “I don’t know” with great suspicion. Yet it is extremely challenging for prosecutors to prove that an allegedly non-remembering witness is perjuring himself or herself. This is because it’s impossible to “get inside the head” of that witness.

Bob McGovern ‏@BobMcGovernJr  · 21m  
Fee: "I guess I don't have the ability to look at this like a Rorschach inkblot test like the prosecution." #AaronHernandez


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 21m 
Fee says prosecutors presenting jailhouse convos out of context, only showing snippets #AaronHernandez


Bob McGovern ‏@BobMcGovernJr  · 21m  
Fee: "This is nothing more than a statement of an obvious fact." #AaronHernandez


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 21m  
Fee: convo is nothing more than two relatives talking about reality of jail convos being recorded #AaronHernandez


Jenny Wilson ‏@jennydwilson  · 22m 
Prosecutor: "It is, in fact, an exchange of their own states of mind” #AaronHernandez


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 22m  
Fee: convo in jail between #AaronHernandez & Tanya (AH warns her phone is recorded), not relevant, prosecution says speaks to state of mind


Bob McGovern ‏@BobMcGovernJr  · 22m  
Fee says statement in one call would "lead the jury to speculate." The statement: #AaronHernandez telling Singleton the call is recorded.


Jenny Wilson ‏@jennydwilson  · 21m  
Defense counters: “That one statement is meaningless…nothing more than a discussion of a reality of what occurs” #AaronHernandez


Adam Bagni ‏@NBC10_Adam  · 21m 
The defense is arguing that these jailhouse convos are not relevant. Say they'd cause too much speculation by jury. #AaronHernandez


Bob McGovern ‏@BobMcGovernJr  · 23m 
The defense is essentially arguing that the recordings aren't relevant. Prejudice to #AaronHernandez is too great.


Ted Daniel ‏@TedDanielFOX25  · 23m  
NOW: Judge hearing defense motion to exclude #AaronHernandez jail-house recorded phone calls


Bob McGovern ‏@BobMcGovernJr  · 23m 
First motion: Jailhouse conversations involving #AaronHernandez


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 23m  
Jailhouse conversation arguments about to begin #AaronHernandez


Adam Bagni ‏@NBC10_Adam  · 26m 
Good morning.The jury will not be here today, but we're expected to hear arguments on admissibility of jailhouse phone calls.#AaronHernandez

Fee: sounds like prosecution is alleging a crime (cover-up) for which #AaronHernandez has not been charged with

The next conversation is between Mercado (yesterday's witness) and #AaronHernandez. Fee simply says it's hearsay.

Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 1m  
Fee: prosecution suggesting 'unprecedented' assertion that the joint venture 'never ends,' continues to this day #AaronHernandez


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 3m

Fee: what we heard today (on Tanya contempt) may be separate crime, but it's not evidence of joint venture of Lloyd murder #AaronHernandez

Bomberg is up, and he says that a lack of a conspiracy charge doesn't matter for hearsay analysis. #AaronHernandez

And we'll be taking a 15 minute recess. #AaronHernandez.


Brian Fraga  ‏@BfragaHN  · 1m
Judge Garsh says she will try to release her ruling on which jailhouse convos are relevant later today #AaronHernandez


Kevin Vaughan ‏@writerkev  · 5m
A partial victory for both sides -- judge says at least some jailhouse recordings of #AaronHernandez are admissible. Full ruling later.

It looks like the Commonwealth is going to rest its case in about a week, or so ...

I just heard the judge said that, or something to that effect. :)
