She just appealed.
On Thursday, she asked Judge Stephen Baratta to "vacate or reverse" the verdict. Maybe she does not consider that an appeal
She claims her right to counsel was violated even though she has bragged on numerous occasions that she is at her best when she represents herself.
After seeking numerous continuances and skipping out on bail, she argues she was denied her right to a speedy trial.
She asserts her crime was victimless, even though her lie took numerous troopers off the highways for hours. The entire state was a victim, which is why the caption against her is Commonwealth v.Tricia Mezzacappa.
She claims several jurors tried to talk to her about her case in the rotunda on March 9. There is constant video of the rotunda, which I'm certain will show that, once again, she is lying. She continues to dig a hole for herself.
She argues the jury foreperson was sleeping during closing arguments. Unless she made an objection to the court at the time, she has waived the right to complain now.
She's upset that the jury took such little time to reach a verdict. She asserts, with no evidence at all to support her wild claim, that "outside influence affected the jury."
She states she was denied the time to subpoena documents or witnesses. She had well over a year to do so.
She complains that "nonpublic information" was leaked. Although this is untrue, it has noting to do with the facts of the case.
She finally asserts that her former lawyer, prominent criminal defense lawyer John Waldron, refused to refund whatever she paid him or find her another lawyer. He got out of the case, and with her consent, because she refused to heed his advice. In fact, she told LehighValleyLive she regretted her refusal to listen.
This appeal demonstrates that whatever planet she's on, it's not Earth.
