Jodi’s hand written motion asking for change in counsel


“The beginning of the end was when he began adopting a lazy attitude towards investigating my case, and instead of tracking down real leads, in 2012 he squandered county resources on chasing an out-of-state pen pal for reasons said pen pal and I both remain unclear of to this day. For this expensive and unecessary trip, he brought along his co-char, Jennifer Willmott, and investigator, Bud Barton, and then instructed these team members and mitigation specialist, Maria De La Rosa to lie to me about this trip. Meanwhile, real potential witnesses and leads were being neglected and were never followed up on as time stretched ever further and memories became fuzzier.”

“An example of this was when this court offered the option of playing the sex tape to the jury in a closed hearing. Upon learning this, I had an emotional reaction such that the rest of the day’s proceedings were cancelled. I could not speak or be reasoned with or form rational thoughts beyond the horrors of exposing Travis and myself. Other team members made efforts to help me understand that this decision was not not[sic] made to humiliate Travis’ family or me, but that it backed up my testimony (e.g. Travis expresses his pedophilic desires in the tape and talks about his sexual experience with others, and I display no jealousy when discussing his planned trip across the border). Mr. Nurmi, however…”

“Most prominently is Deanna Reid, who, in previous recorded statements, denied she had ever has sex wtih Travis and claimed she believed he was a virgin at the time he died. Then under oath, she testified that she and Travis did have sexual relations (because for the State’s case, it was now important that she admit it, whereas before it was important that she deny it). Mr Nurmi failed to impeach her credibility for lying on record. Whether this was in fact due to his poor memory or simply a poor strategical decision, I am left to guess because he refused to communicate with me as to why there was no impeachment. Either way, the damage is the same.”
