Re: "Hiccup Girl" on Trial For Murder in Florida

I can't help but laugh at the fact that she was hiccuping during the robbery.

Mee is not facing the death penalty. If convicted, she will face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
i never understood that. why tax payers have to pay for the rest of her life. she will die in jail so better give her the injection right away.

I don't understand why someone would prefer life in prison to the death penalty. Unless they are innocent and are just hoping for time to prove it.

She was hiccuping in court, too

Cracked me up. Sometimes, it takes so little for me.

I guess I was wrong about jail curing them

Hey, you never know!

What if you hiccup with a loaded gun in your hand

A great defense attorney might try the Tourettes and hiccup defense

I won't get Lasik sugery because I'm afraid the doctor might hiccup, sneeze or twitch.

**GUILTY OF 1ST DEGREE MURDER**

http://www.newsy.com/videos/woman-kn...-degree-murder

Jennifer Mee, whose uncontrollable hiccupping made her a minor celebrity as a teen, was convicted in the 2010 murder of a 22-year-old Wal-Mart worker.

CLEARWATER, FL — A Florida woman who became famous for her uncontrollable hiccupping was found guilty of first-degree murder Friday night and will serve life in prison without parole.

A Pinellas County jury deliberated for four hours before delivering the verdict against 22 year old Jennifer Mee.

Woman known for hiccups found guilty of first-degree murder. Mee wept in the Clearwater courtroom as the verdict was read. Minutes later, Judge Nancy Moate Ley explained that the only possible sentence for the charge was life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The verdict and five-day trial was a sad end to a chapter in Mee's short and sad life. Her attorneys said she suffered from schizophrenia and Tourette's Syndrome, and a court psychiatrist said Mee's intelligence was, "low normal."

As a 15-year-old, Mee developed a case of the hiccups that wouldn't go away. She appeared on several TV shows and while on the, "Today," show, was hugged by fellow guest and country music star Keith Urban. She tried home remedies and consulted medical specialists, a hypnotist and an acupuncturist, until the hiccups finally stopped on their own, though not for good.

Her attorney, John Trevena, said his client was on medication to control the hiccupping, and even then, she occasionally had bouts.

She hiccupped briefly during one day of her murder trial.

In 2010, Mee lured Shannon Griffin, a 22-year-old Wal-Mart worker, to an abandoned home under the pretense of buying marijuana. Once there, two of Mee's friends robbed Griffin at gunpoint — but he struggled and was shot four times.

Mee's co-defendant, LaRon Raiford, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in August. Lamont Newton, the other co-defendant who was also Mee's boyfriend at the time of the crime, has not yet gone to trial.

Trevena said his client did not orchestrate the robbery and that there wasn't enough evidence to convict her. But prosecutors said Mee did set everything up, and used police interviews and a taped jailhouse phone call between Mee and her mother as evidence.

During the call, she told her mother that she did not pull the trigger of the gun that killed Griffin, but that she was charged with murder.

"Because I set everything up," Mee explained during the call that was played for the jury. "It all went wrong, Mom. It just went downhill."

Re: "Hiccup Girl" on Trial For Murder in Florida

So what exactly was the point in luring the guy there, if it wasn't to sell him pot? Were they trying to rob him?

Not that robbery excuses anything, obviously. What a lousy way to go. Pretty sure the three people involved should never be let out of prison again. Why is it so easy for some people to kill? It's sickening. This man died because he wanted a little pot?

I think you know some people have no conscience or feelings for anything, including themselves.

It's one of those things without any logic

I have said it many times, but, it's hard to believe we are all the same species.
