Defense Expert says Nurmi's request 4 a stay, was so he could have time 2 argue #jodiarias mistrial & withdrawl motions to AZ Supreme Ct



Enough already. Just let the bit** get up there and speak so they can fry her azz and be done with it.  This should have been finished last Thursday. Now they have another day delay.


THIS IS IT JODI - no cameras on death row

I think the reason her Mother isn't testifying is because of Jodi's testimony about her Mother. IMO, they were all lies and her Mom is scared to lie in agreement under oath. JMO.

The best chance Jodi has is on appeal, so the defense has shifted to helping her create those issues.

HLN: The defense doesn't want this jury to decide sentencing. They're looking for some issue that would let a new jury decide her sentence on appeal.

A DECENT, LOVING MOTHER SHOULD STAND UP FOR HER KID THAT SHE BORE! imo

You don't have to say you agree with her actions, but at the very least you could
say, PLEASE JURY do not kill my daughter. She is troubled. We all know that now.
I can only plead for mercy. I don't know something like that.

And grandma could get up outta that wheelchair like we saw in the video and say something!
Especially a gradma saying Jodi's been good to me and grandpa.



Kermit

Considering I do not want ANYTHING swaying the jury away from a death penalty verdict ...I hope family members do not speak on behalf of Jodi but ... could it be that wheels are currently being turned by the defense to make it happen?

Jinkasaurus: The #1 reason that capital cases are overturned in Arizona is "ineffective assistance of counsel". Nurmi was trying to make the case today that he and Willmott couldn't offer effective counsel in the face of intimidation to their witnesses and that intimidation was done by Juan and the fact that the trial was televised.

They're trying to lay the groundwork for successful appeal of, at least, the sentencing phase so a new jury could set the sentence.

So much for Jodi wanting to die. She's clawing anything she can to stay alive.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/20/jodi-arias-sentencing/2325915/

Lawyer for Jodi Arias: She will speak to jury Tuesday
2:03 p.m. EDT May 20, 2013

PHOENIX ó The sentencing hearing for convicted killer Jodi Arias ground to halt Monday when her lawyers refused to call any witnesses and a judge refused their requests for a mistrial and to withdraw from the case.

Judge Sherry Stephens called a halt to the proceedings and released the jury for the day, telling them to return Tuesday morning.

STORY: Lifetime will air movie on case June 22

Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi later said he will allow Arias to speak to the jury Tuesday.

Jodi looked very engaged today and "on". She's calling shots somewhere in this. She's going to blame others in her statement. She may back off Travis......... if her defense attorneys have been able to convince her she needs to back off.......... but she's going to blame her childhood, etc. That would be hard to do if her Mom addresses the jury and seems like a nice person, particularly if she doesn't confirm abuse, etc.

Apparently Womack was given, or obtained, counsel to help her determine if she should assert her 5th amendment right. That determination was to be made by Monday (today, I think). Juan pointed out that the defense did not address that determination and that it could very well be that was the reason she was unwilling to testify. Her counsel advised her not to.

Bottom line is that Jodi will speak to the jury tomorrow. She has 24 additional hours to prepare, and I think she'll ham it up big time. JMO.

This BS about intimidation by the prosecutor is just that - bull poop. Just because he is an aggressive and competent attorney does not mean he intimidates people - unless those people have something to hide.

Could it be that childhood abuse would not be the mitigating factor IF Sandra Arias speaks on behalf of daughter.  A NEW mitigating factor would be added to the defense's list ... DIMISHED MENTAL CAPACITY.

Think about it.  Sandra refuted Jodi's claim of childhood abuse when interrogated shortly following her daughter's arrest but both parents acknowledge that Jodi had mental issues.

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.

NANCY GRACE
Arias Parents in Police Interrogation
Aired April 29, 2013 - 20:00   ET


NANCY GRACE, HOST: We`re taking you inside the police interrogation room as they question Arias`s parents just two months after Travis Alexander`s brutal killing. This is interrogation, moments that even the jury has not seen,

Excerpts:

SANDRA ARIAS: Because (INAUDIBLE) one of the things when she was here (INAUDIBLE) I called (INAUDIBLE) she`s a member of the Mormon church, and I called the bishop here and wanted to know if there`s any way he could find out where she was going down there to the church because I wanted to talk to him and see if he could talk to Jodi and find out what`s going on because, like I said, she would just totally flip out on me.

SANDRA ARIAS: She would call me in the morning all happy, and call me an hour or two later in tears, crying and sobbing about something she didn`t want to talk about. And that happened constantly, and her friends thought -- too -- I had one friend call me in the middle of the night, and he even called a hotline for bipolar people and said Jodi is bipolar and she needs help. And that`s when we talked her into coming back here so she could be around family.

SANDRA ARIAS: I told her one day, I said, You need some help, Jodi. I said, You`ve got this fantasy in your head that you had a rotten childhood and that we searched your room all the time and we did all this stuff, and we didn`t. And you need some help because that didn`t happen.

WILLIAM ARIAS: She`s a strange person because (INAUDIBLE) after she left the house, you know, just kind of (INAUDIBLE) strange. You know, she was really friendly. Sometimes she`ll call and real sweet, and 10 minutes later, she`ll call in a rage, you know, just screaming at my wife. She did that for (INAUDIBLE) for the last year-and-a-half, she was doing that a lot.

WILLIAM ARIAS:When she was in 8th grade, she got busted for growing marijuana with our Tupperware, putting it on the top of the roof. We found it and called the sheriff department. And they busted her, and then we (INAUDIBLE) friends or something. And then we searched her room. That was the first time we`ve ever searched her room.  After that, she was so -- she was kind of like -- something turned in her head that we were nosy parents and we were going to search everything she had, so she hid everything from us and always has since then. ... she`s never been honest with us since then. And she was probably 14 then because she has never been honest with us ever since then.

Kirk Nurmi claimed intimidation and threats.  What did Juan Martinez counter claim at the very end of his arguments?

I could be wrong.  I will listen to today's proceeding on Youtube later.

Janet 

He did counter with something about how Patty would have said Jodi's childhood was good and that her testimony wouldn't support a mitigating circumstance. Or something to that effect.

(I got the feeling he definitely had the video)

Thanks Samantha

Somehow I believe that the revelation of the video clip from the past was the catalyst regarding why Patty Womack was a no-show.  Could it be that Nurmi learned of the video/interview (abc) and had no doubt that Martinez would challenge?  Intimidation?  Threats?  GMAB!!  IMO

According to Kirk Nurmi

Jodi Arias Penalty Phase - Day 1 - Part 1
May 16, 2013

 
25:57
.... You will also hear from a friend of hers, a lifelong friend because they lost touch later in Miss Ariasís 20ís when she got together with Mr. Alexander. Her name is Patty Womack. She will talk to you a little bit about the Jodi Arias she knew, her upbringing. She will talk about the lack of support Miss Arias had from her family. She will describe that for you from her observations. Youíve heard during the course of the trial that Miss Arias suffered abuse and neglect as a child and as an adult.

I think I heard on HLN the reason the mother doesn't make a plea for her daughter's life
is because if she is to take the stand and say Jodi was a good kid or something to that effect
then Juan Martinez can cross-exam and bring up that Jodi kicked her mother. Things that
the jury never heard.

I agree. I just do not think it will fly because the defense put on witness that were upon cross
unscrupulous., unprofessional, biased and well just down right obvious in their attempt to bill
many hours for psychological testing and created unprofessional relationships with their client.
