Judge: The defense has failed to establish a reason for the trial not to go forward. The court has offered to seal Miss Womack's testimony.

Nurmi: Miss Wilmott and I assert again, we want to withdraw from the case.

Judge: Denied

Nurmi: No witnesses.

Judge: Alright, I assume your client does wish to allocate (is that the right word?)

Nurmi and Willmott are discussing things and look very ticked off. Mike B. takes stenography machine to chambers.

We are at recess. Not sure what the next step is. Stay tuned. #JodiArias

Motion to withdraw has been denied. Nurmi is very upset and explains the defense will not be calling witnesses.

Nurmi's mistrial motion being heard in open court.

Grounds seem to be that the jury was not sequestered and that it was televised.


I guess they're trying for whatever they can at this point.   

 
Juan's arguing the other side now. He has a different take on why Womack isn't testifying. Brings up her drug use. 

   Go Juan go!!  He's Juan in a million!

No, the word was allocute: An allocution in mitigation allows the defendant to explain why the sentence should be lenient.

What was Nurmi's response?  Will Jodi be called?

Jodi Arias must be directing her own defense.

If not ...

It would make sense that Jodi's attorneys would have her parents take the stand and apologize to Travis' family for recognizing their daughter had mental problems but failed to be more forceful in regards to seeking professional assistance.  Maybe Travis would still be pursuing his dreams.

It would make sense that Jodi's attorneys to have her siblings take the stand and share memories with the jury ... memories of good times in the past with their sister.

It would make sense that Jodi's parents openly address their daughter by assuring her that while they do not condone her actions ... actions to which there is accountability ... their love for her is unconditional nevertheless.

All the defense is accomplishing is revealing to the world ... revealing to the jury ... Jodi Arias has NOBODY significant in her corner.  IMO

If the scales of justice are to balance ... I believe Jodi Arias should receive the death penalty for the premeditated  murder beyond brutal of Travis Alexander.  On one hand ... I am thankful the defense attorneys are blowing it by preventing mitigating circumstances encompassing Jodi's mental health to be revealed.  On the other hand ... I just hope this is not an avenue for an appeal.

JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL
May 17, 2013


<snipped>

REBECCA MITKIN, CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY: If the penal code says that she has diminished mental capacity which doesn`t rise to the level of not criminally responsible, which we already know that she`s way past that, then you get to use it as a mitigator.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: This mitigation process. I didn`t hear them stress, she is sick; she`s not all there. She -- they made some vague reference to borderline personality disorder, which they had already argued against, because that was the prosecution theory. I mean, have they dropped the ball on the mental illness?

MONICA LINDSTROM, FORMER PROSECUTOR: Jane, that is such a great point. Because that is something that they could sink their teeth into. Because they`ve had three experts -- well, four experts up there -- talk about her mental issues or her mental sickness or disability. So it could be helpful to them.

NANCY GRACE
May 17, 2013


<snipped>

GRACE: ... I expect the mitigation to go on next week. I expect we will hear from Jodi Arias, even though her last turn on the stand did her no favors. I expect to hear from her mother and/or grandmother, from friends and lovers, but I would put my money on the mother and the grandmother. If anyone can save Arias now, it`s them.

If I comprehended ... Juan Martinez claims that Patty Womack will not testify as she could not affirm Nurmi's claim that Jodi's childhood would have been a mitigating factor.

Did I get it right?

Well, that was quite the circus from the defense.

Wonder what they'll have up their sleeves tomorrow.

This is getting ridiculous.
