Hello and welcome to The Trial Diaries! My name is Jen Wood and I’m a Trial Reporter covering high profile trials across the nation. I’ve always been interested in the criminal justice system and have had a love for going to trials for a long time. I have education in the criminal justice field and love watching the inner workings of how our criminal system works! I’ve sat in on many trials over the years some more high profile than others. I’ve covered Jodi Arias, Richard Chrisman, Marissa DeVault, Steven DeMocker, Bryan Wayne Hulsey and countless others online. I’ve appeared on national news such as HLN, Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and Dr. Drew along with shows for Discovery ID and Snapped. I’ve been a commentator for News Channel 3 and appeared on Fox talking about the biggest trials making headlines. I’ve done national and local radio while also hosting my own show on the internet! I’ve had the privilege to interview big names such as Kirk Nurmi and Juan Martinez, writers, victims and countless others that have been involved with criminal trials. I’m working on many other projects that keep me busy as there’s never a shortage of news to cover. I love to get my heels inside the courthouse and get to know all the parties involved. I have a heart for the victims, family, and their friends while still maintaining an open mind as to ones innocence or guilt until all the evidence is in. If I’m not in the courtroom or bringing you the best scoops, interviews and trial coverage you will find me with my two lovable dogs (Tatum and Chile) where my passion for animals is as strong as my love for the criminal justice system. I encourage everyone to donate to animal rescues and always adopt… I love the saying “unconditional love is as close as your nearest shelter.” So come on this journey with me as we step inside the courtroom and try the cases from a spectators point of view.
