Jodi Arias Trial: Penalty Phase

Since Jodi Arias has continued to do what she shouldn't do, and that's open her mouth to the media, this tainted jury will likely give her the death penalty.

The good news, however, is since there is so much reversible error in this trial, any verdict and sentence will be overturned on appeal.

Since there is no way she can ever get a fair trial in Arizona, thanks to the Mormon mob and the media sensationalism, she could very well get freedom like Debra Milke eventually did. That's assuming she doesn't let her depression overwhelm her and she commits suicide.

It may take a long time, as long as a dozen years, for the case to be resolved. HLN might not even be around that long; hell, Nancy Grace, Drew Pinsky, and Jane Velez-Mitchell will likely be long retired before this is over with.

It's a disgrace, that verdict. They can't ever tell me this wasn't a result of the fallout from Casey Anthony. The media-instigated mob mentality is truly unseemly.

Here is a graphic about the death penalty appeals process, should that be necessary in this case:

Update: Trial has been canceled until May 15. No reason was given.
