The Final Report in the Nick Godejohn Case

The trial of convicted murderer Nick Godejohn is now in its final phase. Mead, Sullivan, and Curry will try to discredit Godejohn’s testimony as a witness. They will also look at Mead’s argument that Godejohn was handcuffed most of the time and her motion to suppress Godejohn’s statements during an interview.

Sullivan’s Opinion Of Godejohn’s Mental Health Unit

Judge Sullivan’s report focuses on Godejohn’s mental state when he entered the jail. According to Sullivan, the inmate was diagnosed with autism at age 15 and was receiving federal benefits for his illness. He also experienced hearing voices and had thoughts of suicide. Sullivan also found that Godejohn was worried about his girlfriend, Gypsy Blanchard. However, Godejohn was able to cope with his condition, and Sullivan says that Godejohn is now better than he was when he first entered the jail.

The Sullivan report states that the trial was a “very difficult” process, because Godejohn was diagnosed with autism. The jury will hear evidence from a psychologist who specializes in autism. The trial will be held on October 23.

Curry’s Opinion Of Godejohn’s Mental Health Unit

Asked by the defense to describe Godejohn’s behavior as a child, Curry testified that he saw him often talking to himself. He said that Godejohn was very different from other children and that his thought process wasn’t developed like a typical child’s.

But the prosecution objected to this line of questioning, arguing that it was irrelevant to the case. Despite the defense’s objections, the  judge  allowed  Curry  to  testify about his interactions with Godejohn during his childhood.

Morris testified that he met Godejohn before he moved in with his father, but Godejohn’s behavior changed once he moved in with his father. He spent more time online and was nervous around girls. He also had a girlfriend at one point, and was infatuated with her. But after he moved in with his father, Morris did not speak to Godejohn much.

Mead’s Argument That Godejohn Was Handcuffed Most Of The Time

Mead says that the footage shows Godejohn sitting alone most of the time and that Godejohn was “not in a good emotional state,” but that the detective didn’t know that. Mead is concerned that the footage might be shown to prospective juries.

Mead says that if the footage had been shown to a jury, they may have questioned his credibility.

Mead was the public defender for Godejohn during the murder trial. However, he did not have a role in hiring any experts, including a neuropsychologist, and the defense team used Dr. Franks’s diagnosis, which stated that Godejohn was on the autism spectrum. The defense team decided not to hire a neuropsychologist until after the trial was completed. Ultimately, the defense team was satisfied with Dr. Franks’ evaluation and hired Mead instead.

Mead’s Motion To Suppress Godejohn’s Statements During An Interview

Mead did not rely on an expert’s opinion when filing her motion to suppress Godejohn’s statements in an interview, and she didn’t even question her own expert on the potential ramifications of Godejohn’s statements during trial. Her reasoning was based on her own theory of defense, which was that Godejohn had diminished capacity and should be tried for murder in the second degree.

Mead explained that she did not hire a psychologist to examine potential jurors, and that she didn’t want to move the case to a different venue because the trial would be broadcast on national TV. In addition, she didn’t know that potential jurors would watch the trial online, or that the HBO movie Mommy Dead and Dearest would be broadcast live.

Sullivan’s Opinion Of Godejohn’s Sentence

Sullivan reads the inmate’s evaluation record to the court and notes that Godejohn had been diagnosed with autism at age fifteen. Godejohn was receiving federal benefits for his illness and was prone to hearing voices and thoughts of suicide. He was also worried about his girlfriend Gypsy Blanchard and was nervous about the situation.

Godejohn’s attorneys have requested an extension of 30 days to file an amended motion. Godejohn’s attorneys have argued that his attorneys provided inadequate representation during trial. They say that their client’s attorneys did not properly present their arguments to the court, which led to a wrongful conviction.

Sullivan’s opinion of Nick GodeJohn’s sentence is not entirely based on the evidence. He argues that Godejohn’s mental illness prompted his ill-fated acts. He had a history of mental illness, yet he willingly confessed to the murders. Sullivan believes that Godejohn’s sentence should be life without parole.
