The mitigating factors portion of sentencing should have already started. They only have two witnesses. The defense has all but given up. And then last week, one of the two asked not to be on camera. Depsite the fact she has been on camera and acting inappropriately with Jodi’s mother in court laughing and giggling….it is setting in for her she doesn’t want to be associated. On the other hand the defense has supposedly convinced her ex boyfriend Darryl to be on camera. ALLEGEDLY.
UPDATE: The defense has filed a mistrial because Womack has withdrawn as a character witness due to death threats from the public. I saw this coming the first time I saw some asswipe tweeting her picture after the judges order was made to grant her anonymity. These crazy people that are hellbent on killing Jodi and everyone around her are only going to serve to get her a new trial. Idiots, all.
Her attorneys are begging to leave, her only two very questionable character witnesses are fleeing…..and everything came to a standstill. Will either testify and be at the will of cross by Juan? Vegas money is on Jodi taking the stand “asking for the death penalty” to dissuade the jury. We shall see. Feeds start at 1 pm EDT…which means in AZ terms probably 1:30 or two. But we will be here, recapping and such.
I would like to ask that we do not post prior history or incriminating things about the defense witnesses. This is a criminal trial and everyone has a right to defend themselves. And if coming to defend Jodi Arias is something that could cause them harm, or public humiliation, that is not okay. And it will not be allowed here. Jodi has a right to plead her mitigating factors. This is how our court system works. And there is no need to put them in harms way. Thanks.
As always we will be posting here about whatever happens in court in comments.
