And you believe that nonsense? It's unfounded.

Also, in your link, the juror interviewed, who voted for death, says no one has the right to be angry towards or feel hatred towards anyone who did not vote for death. She said it was a personal decision. See the video. She is right on.

LOL, believe what? That the juror was influenced by the pictures of Jodi? Um, no, I don't think he was influenced by those pics, but yes, I saw numerous accusations that he was influenced, that I believe because I saw the accusations.

Jury Instruction...

http://www.azbar.org/media/58847/4-c...vised_2011.pdf

Page 568 ...Capital Case 1.6(d) Definition of Especially Cruel, Heinous or Depraved

I'm going to guess they used ....

2. Inflicted gratuitous violence on the victim beyond that necessary to kill;

Inflicted Gratuitous Violence
To find that the defendant inflicted gratuitous violence, you must find that the defendant
intentionally inflicted violence clearly beyond what was necessary to kill the victim, and that the
defendant continued to inflict this violence after the defendant knew or should have known that
the [defendant had inflicted a fatal injury] [victim was dead].


Penalty Phase starts on page 579

UR, age is a mitigating factor, sorta ... Capital Case 3.6 Age
Now we know why they said her age.

Will the defense change the mitigating circumstances?

According to the Jury instructions, they can make up their own mitigating circumstances. So who knows what they will come up the second go around.

Capital Case 3.1 − Mitigation Evidence

The evidence you shall consider in determining mitigation includes any aspect of the defendant’s character, propensities, or record and any of the circumstances of the offense that might justify a penalty less severe than death. Mitigating circumstances may include but are not limited to the following:
1. significant impairment
2. unusual and substantial duress
3. relatively minor participation
4. death not reasonably foreseeable
5. the defendant’s age.
You may consider any mitigating evidence in deciding whether leniency is appropriate.
This includes any variation of the mitigating circumstances that I have specifically defined in these instructions. You are not limited to considering these mitigating circumstances.

I have no idea what this really means but they are saying on the State Vs JA FB page..... It means that In Session have been approved to stream the second penalty phase.

I wonder if the DT has asked for a change of venue yet or if they are going to. I don't know that it would matter either way.

I guess I know what most of us will be doing on that date. I bet they move forward with a new jury. Who the heck knows what mitigating factors will be brought in.

I wonder if they will use anyone to testify now that it will be a new jury.

From The State vs Jodi Arias Facebook page. I cut it into paragraphs for easier reading:


A statement by Harold Sorenson, Tanisha's husband:

I will make a comment ! These are my words only. This is not from any of the Alexander family or even from my wife Tanisha.

They are all emotionally drained. At the same time they are overwhelmingly grateful - to the court, to Judge Stephens, to the jurors all of them, especially to Juan Martinez, to the Attorney General of Arizona, who they will be meeting with very shortly to prepare themselves emotionally, mentally, for the re-trial of the third phase, the penalty phase. This will be even harder on them then what they've experienced during the past phases of this trial.

If ever they needed the world's love and support of the overwhelming majority that have been there for them, it would be this re trial of the penalty phase.

Please keep the family continually in your hearts, in your prayers as the fight for justice is not just for Travis alone, but for the past and future victims of the world that the DP can be respected and upheld when it truly is warranted.
Let goodness prevail over evil.

We love you, and deeply respect the overwhelming support. God bless true victims and justice for Travis Alexander.

Thank you,
Harold Sorenson.

I saw this, I figured they would still move forward.

Juan wasn't allowed to argue against lack of remorse. Never heard of such a motion.....

The commercials made it seem so much more entertaining. I think after watching JM in action, all other attorneys are really bad. Didn't help that I started watching halfway through!

Miss talking to you all, hope you had a good weekend and are catching up on life now that we have a break.
