It’s time for day two of the prosecution’s cross-examination of Jodi Arias! It should be a great day for those of us who are trial junkies. Last Thursday, Juan Martinez began his cross-examination and many trial commentators felt that he was going a bit hard at Arias. The concern there is that it may cause one or more jurors to feel sorry for her. From what I have heard about Martinez, he’s barely getting warmed up. From the defense standpoint, their ploy seems to be to interrupt the flow of testimony with as many side bars as possible. Jodi did not crack as expected on Thursday. She maintained her composure and was annoyingly smug and at times even confrontational toward Martinez. I can’t wait to see what today brings! Do you think Martinez is making a mistake by being aggressive with Arias on the stand?
Thanks to everyone who recapped on Thursday, especially P. A gentle reminder to recappers to wait to post until you have several sentences or several minutes of trial to report. A few descriptive posts an hour is plenty so that everyone’s comments can be read. And be sure to read others comments while recapping in case they have questions! I can’t wait to see everyone’s comments!
