Good Afternoon Monkeys,

Haven't posted much but try to keep up with this travesty of justice. What difference does it really make if Travis watched pronography , Jody seemed more than willing to participate in sex with Travis. It wasn't like he was chasing her down to join him. It still would not give her the right to butcher him. Geesh just wish someone would put this Biotch out of everyone's misery. My heart breaks for Travis' family. Enough of the torture already. I am not saying I agree with pornography, but I am old school where women had self respect and morals. But that had nothing to do with Jody brutally murdering Travis.
 

The defense is trying to make it appear that Travis had problems with his religious beliefs and with sexual deviation. Since in the first trial they presented excessive phone conversations between the two and discussed their anal sex.
Now, they are revisiting that same issue to induce doubt in a jurors mind that Travis was a good guy making it appear that Jodi just went along with these sexual things because she felt she needed to appease him.  Problem is like you said, does it make Jodi murdering Travis and excessively planning to murder him get her a life in prison sentence?

I think Juan expects this stuff from Nurmi. It's all the same ol thing. Lies, place blame on the victim and lie some more to delay.

There is a term . . . which for the life of me I can't remember . . . which I get you to look over there so you won't look at me.

My prayers for all who loved Travis -- how horrible to have to hear all this BS while trying to grieve the murder of your loved one.

Haven't a clue. But what ever it is. That's what they are trying. Makes me sick the way they are playing with the justice system.

Prosecutor questions ethics of Jodi Arias witness
November 26, 2014

PHOENIX Prosecutor Juan Martinez on Tuesday continued his steady drum of implications and accusations against a defense expert for Jodi Arias in an attempt to discredit favorable testimony for the convicted killer.

Psychologist L.C. Miccio-Fonseca examined the sexual relationship between Arias and victim Travis Alexander, Arias' sometimes lover.

Miccio-Fonseca had said Arias suffered in silence as a result of the toxic dynamic between her and Alexander, and she said Alexander had "closeted" Arias, eventually hiding their relationship from his friends.

Martinez aimed to illustrate, often with trial testimony and evidence, that Arias was not one to bottle her emotions and would often assert herself when she felt she had been wronged.

There was the time that Arias and Alexander were about to go hiking with mutual friend Daniel Freeman, and Freeman emptied Arias' backpack of beauty supplies, Martinez pointed out. Arias was upset, and a fight between she and Alexander ensued.

And there was the time when Arias went to Alexander's house unannounced, looked through the window, and witnessed him kissing another woman, Martinez said. And the time when, faced with suspicions of infidelity, Arias went through Alexander's phone.
"So she had no permission to go in there," Martinez said. "That's a pretty assertive act to go into somebody's cellphone when they are asleep. It's not suffering in silence."

Martinez dedicated a considerable portion of the day challenging Miccio-Fonseca's personal integrity, as well.

He brought up testimony in which Miccio-Fonseca had described an instant-messaging conversation between Arias and Alexander as a "five-hour rant" by Alexander. But the exchange actually lasted just a little over two hours, Martinez said, implying that Miccio-Fonseca had lost objectivity and intentionally exaggerated about the length of the outburst.

Martinez capped his cross-examination by insinuating that Miccio-Fonseca had unethically diagnosed Alexander as depressed when she had no right to do so.


Miccio-Fonseca said she did not, and could not diagnose Alexander, but was simply quoting his own words when he mentioned suicide to friends.

But the majority of Miccio-Fonseca's rebuttal came with the aid of defense attorney Kirk Nurmi's redirect questioning.

The psychologist was allowed to clarify to the jury the scope of her examination. Miccio-Fonseca said her expertise comes from decades of work and research on unconventional sexual behavior.

She was specifically asked to examine the sexual dynamic between Arias and Alexander, she said. It did not need to be, and was not meant to be, an exhaustive study, as Martinez had implied.

Nurmi also asked her to expand on Martinez's implications that Miccio-Fonseca had lost objectivity. Miccio-Fonseca said it was "outrageous" that someone would try to besmirch the reputation of an expert witness without any basis.

Arias, 34, is on trial in Maricopa County Superior Court to determine whether she should be sentenced to life or death for killing Alexander in June 2008. Alexander, 30, was discovered in the shower of his Mesa home with a bullet in his head, a slit throat and nearly 30 stab wounds.

Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in May 2013, but the first jury was unable to decide whether the crime warranted life in prison or death. The penalty retrial began with a new jury in October.

The trial will reconvene Dec. 2.

I really do believe there should be transparency.  Stop giving Jodi Aria preferential treatment.

Court throws out ruling that barred public from watching 1st witness called by Jodi Arias
November 26, 2014

PHOENIX   An appeals court has thrown out a ruling that barred the public from watching the first witness called by Jodi Arias at the convicted murderer's sentencing retrial.

The decision Wednesday by the Arizona Court of Appeals overturns the Oct. 30 ruling by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens and suggests that the previously unidentified witness may have been Arias herself.

Stephens had said the ruling was necessary because Arias' first witness, whom the judge refused to publicly identify, wouldn't testify unless the hearing was closed to the public. Some of the testimony by Arias' first witness was conducted in private. The Arizona Republic and three Phoenix TV stations KPNX, KPHO and KTVK protested the closure of the courtroom, arguing the First Amendment allows reporters to attend the trial.

Arias was convicted of murder last year in the 2008 death of former boyfriend Travis Alexander, but jurors deadlocked on whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or death. A new jury has been picked to decide her sentence.

The appeals court didn't offer an explanation in its ruling Wednesday at how it arrived at that decision. A more detailed ruling is expected in the future.

But the court suggested an answer to a question that stumped trial watchers: Who was the skittish witness who was allowed to testify in private?

The appeals court said Stephens order closed the courtroom to the public during "any testimony by Jodi Arias," though it's unclear whether the testimony was made by Arias herself or someone else on Arias' behalf.

"It underscores the importance of the public's right to attend criminal trials, particularly the testimony of a defendant in the sentencing phase of a capital trial," David Bodney, an attorney representing the news organizations, said of the ruling.
 
The decision to close the courtroom came after Stephens and the case's lawyers met behind closed doors at the start of Arias' case. Since then, Arias' lawyers have continued putting on their case, and Arias has yet to publicly testify at the sentencing retrial.

The Arias case has been marked by secrecy ever since the conclusion of the first trial, which turned in to a media circus as salacious and violent details about Arias and Alexander were broadcast live for people around the world.

Since then, the judge has held one secret hearing after another and barred the broadcast of footage from the sentencing retrial until after a verdict is reached. Arias' lawyers had argued that daily broadcasts of the trial would lead to defense witnesses backing out for fear of being harassed or threatened.

Judge Stephens had started down a road that I don't think she knows how to get off.  I bet she had made some decisions she regrets.  For the sake of justice, she needs to own up to her mistakes and take the "justice" road.  JMO

Arias trial testimony is pushed back another week
Posted: Dec 08, 2014 8:43 PM CST
Updated: Dec 08, 2014 8:46 PM CST

PHOENIX (AP) - The jury in the Jodi Arias sentencing retrial in Maricopa County Superior Court has been given another week off.

Arias' lead defense attorney told a judge at Monday's status conference that he had three witnesses who refuse to testify in public.

Kirk Nurmi also says he'd like to wait until he can take an appeals court order forbidding secret testimony to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Jurors now are scheduled to return on Dec. 15 with an evidentiary hearing Thursday that doesn't include the jury.

Day 17 of Jodi Arias trial: No trial this week, judge rules
Posted: Dec 03, 2014 8:26 AM CST  Updated: Dec 08, 2014 2:04 PM CST

PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Testimony in the sentencing retrial of convicted murderer Jodi Arias will take the week off.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman said the next court date is an evidentiary hearing at 9:30 a.m. and the jury won't return until Monday, Dec. 15.

The jury has already been off since last week as two evidentiary hearings were Thursday and Friday.

The defense last week tried again to get her murder conviction tossed out on the grounds they claim certain computer evidence was destroyed while in the custody of Mesa police.

Another juror, Juror No. 3, was dismissed Tuesday and defense witness and clinical psychologist Dr. L.C. Fonseca was back on the stand for further cross-examination by prosecutor Juan Martinez.

Although all of this is BS in my opinion, it will be certainly difficult to appeal her sentence due to incompetent attorney.  Not that I think this attorney is competent, but they have assuredly tried every trick in the book and then some.
Justice delayed doesn't mean there will be no justice.

Secret Testimony of Jodi Arias Faces Exposure
By JAMIE ROSS
         ShareThis   
     PHOENIX (CN) - A court improperly allowed Jodi Arias to testify secretly during the penalty phase of her murder trial, the Arizona Court of Appeals found.
     Arias was convicted in May 2013 of first-degree murder for killing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, five years earlier.
     Judge Sherry Stephens was forced to declare the penalty phase a mistrial, however, when the jury was unable to reach a verdict.
     The penalty phase began in October, with a new jury empanelled to decide Arias' sentence. On Oct. 30, though, Stephens closed the court to the press and public, claiming that a then-unknown witness refused to take the stand if the proceedings were open, and stating the proceedings were to be sealed.
     Members of the Phoenix broadcast and print media challenged Stephens' ruling, claiming it violated the First Amendment.
     In its opinion Tuesday, the Arizona Court of Appeals opinion revealed Arias as the unknown witness. She said, in the face of death threats, secrecy was necessary to protect her rights under the Fifth, Eighth and 14th Amendments.
     "Her lawyer stated Arias would not testify because the media coverage of her testimony would affect her ability to think and answer questions in a manner 'she truly means' to 'fully actualize her mitigation,'" the ruling states.
     Initially, Stephens had found that closing the proceeding was not necessary, suggesting that the press and public observe from an overflow courtroom.
     Arias advised the court that she still refused to testify, however, "because of the pressure that I would feel because of these threats."
     Although Stephens found Arias to be "manipulative, the court stated it had considered the potential legal ramifications if an appellate court later determined that Arias did not voluntarily waive her right to present evidence in mitigation," the opinion states.
     A three-judge appellate panel found that Arias did not have the right to refuse to testify.
     "[A] defendant who testified in open court during the guilt phase of the trial cannot decide she will only testify in the penalty phase if the press and public are excluded and her testimony is sealed until after any verdict," Judge Maurice Portley wrote for the court.
     "The trial court correctly found that there was an alternative to closing the trial-having the press and public view her testimony from a different courtroom," Portley added. "Although Arias balked at the alternative, she has not demonstrated a clear and present danger to a fair trial with an impartial jury."
     Portley ordered that the transcripts of Arias' testimony should be unsealed and Stephens' order vacated.
     ]b]The trial court will hear the news organizations' request for the testimony to be
unsealed on Jan. 5. [/b]

In the hopes of dodging the death penalty, Jodi Arias was recurrently depicted by her legal team as a sufferer of mental illness and emotional and physical abuse in day 20 of the her retrial in Maricopa County Superior Court.
