Prof. Tollin: Had interaction with gunman in neuroscience course
Prof. Tollin: Also taught a grant-writing course the defendant was in
Now discussing email correspondence between Prof Tollin and the defendant. Brauchler moves to admit exhibit 1206
Defense approaches with objection
@joey: We don't know yet what the emails say, but if they are admitted we should be seeing copies later this week
@Valm46: Yes, guilt phase comes first. If convicted, then a penalty phase.
@NT8: I'm not sure the jury formula in Boston. Here, there are 12 jurors and 12 alternates. But only the court knows which is which
@NT8: I see, at that point, I believe the 12 voting jurors will be known and they will continue into the next phase.
@Valm46: Yes, judge and attys
- Judge's Order
Judge admits the emails as evidence
Prof. Tollin: "he did outstanding. he put together a very nice proposal" in grant-writing class
Sorry about signal issues. I'm on the phone with our control room right now
@NT8: No, signals were crossed from nearby receivers.
@joey: They're talking about them right now
Prof. Tollin: "I gave him an A or an A-" ... "I thought he did very well."
DA hands Tollin exhibit 1205: Defendant's final grant proposal. "This is a very strong and well thought out and very well written piece of work"
Defense objects as cumulative, saying that this is repeat of what was already introduced
DA Brauchler withdraws evidence that was a repeat, the final copy of the document was in the first packet of evidence
Prof Tollin: Would NOT describe defendant as "being detached from reality"
- Cross-examination starts
Higgs for the defense. "I don't have many questions for you"
Prof. Tollin: Agrees defendant was probably shy during that first interview, but "not so much different from other students."
Defense exhibit DTR 8 is apparently a course schedule, which includes the course Prof. Tollin team-taught
Prof Tollin: Agrees his interactions with defendant during the neuroscience class were limited and they had no social interaction outside the classes
Prof. Tollin: Defendant turned in his writing assignment on the original due date, not the rescheduled date 1 week later.
