    JODI ARIAS SENTENCING SCENARIOS
    Capital Case Sentencing Instructions, per the AZ Bar

    If guilty of 1st degree murder

    • we go into an aggravation phase (was the death caused in a cruel manner, did she know Travis would suffer)...the jury will deliberate a second time.
    • jury decides life or death. If they find it was not cruel, they'd vote not guilty and the sentence would be life.
    • if life, judge sets sentencing for 30 - 60 days; JUDGE will decide if she'll ever be eligible for parole...either LWOP or life and eligible for parole in about 25 years.
    • if death (Jodi knew Travis would suffer), then we go into the sentencing phase...the DT would ask for leniency, the jury would deliberate a third time, then she will be sentenced immediately to death (sentenced immediately, not executed immediately). The jury COULD deadlock at this phase, there'd be a mistrial for that phase and there'd be a new jury for that phase only.
    If guilty of 2nd degree murder

    • the judge sentences her, to no less than 10 and no more than 22 years. JA would get credit for time served...4 1/2+ years. If the judge sentences on the lighter end, she could be out when she's 40.

    Per Jingasaurus on HLN:
    "I think even manslaughter may go to the jury. It's never used here I understand but there is a heat of passion manslaughter. So I think one question is will the defense ask for that and will the judge give that."

    Per Uncle Remus: "I posted that link further back in the thread somewhere and it's generally pretty good with the exception of this:
    Jodi wasn't living in Yreka when she met Travis, she was living with Darryl Brewer in Palm Desert, CA, in the house she and Darryl bought together. Darryl testified to this earlier in the trial."

    Thanks Mare.

    This trial has kept you busy.

    I'll post my last post here as well.

    None yet, but I found this one funny.

    Willmott leaps up and exclaims that it's disrespectful for Juan to refer to Dr. Samuels as Mr. Samuels.

    Did Wilma actually do this? Talk about getting petty.

    So happy with this witness, I was really looking forward to coming on the DIS and rejoicing with the rest of you with how Janeen has decimated ALV and DOCTOR Samuels :rotfl2:.

    Juan is amazing today!!

    Thumper - synopsis by Brian Skoloff of today's events:

    Later Tuesday, Martinez began calling rebuttal witnesses starting with a state-hired clinical psychologist who evaluated Arias, as the prosecutor works to discredit two key defense witnesses -- one who diagnosed Arias with post-traumatic stress disorder and amnesia and another who said the defendant suffers from battered woman's syndrome.

    Martinez accused both defense witnesses of shoddy work, and of basing their opinions on biased findings after forming relationships with Arias.

    Arizona clinical psychologist Janeen DeMarte first addressed the more than 40 hours the defense's domestic violence witness -- psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette -- spent interviewing Arias in jail, explaining that amount of time was extreme to come to a definitive diagnosis.

    "It becomes therapeutic," DeMarte explained, adding that such a relationship could skew findings. She said that amount of time would only be needed for those "who weren't very good" at their jobs.

    Martinez then worked to the attack the credibility of another key defense witness, psychologist Richard Samuels, who diagnosed Arias with amnesia and PTSD.

    DeMarte explained how Arias' responses to certain questions on tests administered by Samuels to reach his diagnoses were untruthful, meaning the conclusions by Samuels would be invalid.

    DeMarte later said it was merely "other evidence that Ms. Arias decided to lie..."

    She was immediately cut off by a defense objection, which the judge sustained and questioning moved in a different direction.

    These are the tweets I can find about the jury at the moment (In order from oldest to most recent):

    WildAboutTrial ‏@WildAboutTrial
    I see a few jurors taking notes as Juan discusses evaluation techniques with Dr. Janeen.

    Debi Boring ‏@dboring1
    @WildAboutTrial #jodiArias Any questions from the jury yet?

    WildAboutTrial ‏@WildAboutTrial
    @dboring1 None yet.

    WildAboutTrial ‏@WildAboutTrial
    @gwenmorgan84 Yes they are attentive and taking some notes.

    WildAboutTrial ‏@WildAboutTrial
    I see a few jurors looking over at #JodiArias as she continues to stay busy doing whatever she is doing.

    WildAboutTrial ‏@WildAboutTrial
    Jurors still very engaged and taking notes. #JodiArias still concentrating on her writing/drawing. Looks like she is transcribing something

    Thank you! We were all wondering if the jury was noticing that JA wasn't paying JD a bit of attention, was being so absorbed in her doodling. I for one am glad there are no juror questions yet. :teeth:
