Jodi Arias Trial: Aggravation Phase

The aggravation phase of this utterly aggravating trial is supposed to begin around 10 a.m. PDT today.

It's a given she will get the death penalty and thus make it much easier for the verdict to be overturned on appeal thanks to oodles of instances of judicial error and prosecutorial hanky-panky. If she gets less than death, it will be harder to overturn it because at least she will be "allowed" to live.

3:10 PDT: As expected, this jury decided to take the easy way out and give "death" to Jodi at this stage or at least put it on the table, which means that she will prevail upon appeal, which is automatic, if the mitigation phase is unsuccessful, which it will be.
