    I voted yes. I could be wrong but I think it is a very good possibility.

    I voted Yes but it's not a strong Yes.

    If the defense were really trying to prove self defense, then Jodi would HAVE to testify. However, like I said in another post -- I don't think the defense is really trying to prove self defense; I think they are only bringing this defense in order to get in negative evidence about Travis in an effort to persuade jurors not to give Jodi death penalty.

    I voted "I don't know" because I keep going back and forth.

    I voted "Yes" but actually, "I don't know".

    I'm sure Jodi would love nothing better than to take the stand and impress everyone with her artful lies. And there's nothing I would love more than to watch her performance. But as we know, most defense lawyers strongly urge the defendant not to. So, I don't think Jodi will testify.

    I voted yes. She isn't going to let anyone tell her not to.
    IMO

    Which will further prove (to me) she was not "abused"

    I voted no because she just reminds me so much of KC and I think these type of people get chicken-s*** when they have to face the music and they realize they probably wont be able to lie in front of so many people.

    They can lie great with 1 or 2 people, but I feel they chicken out in front of a large number of people who can see through their lies.

    JMO of course. I hope I am wrong cause I want to see on the stand.

    I voted "yes" but I am 75/25.

    I think she is strong-willed and we know she doesn't take no for an answer. If she doesn't, it will be because she chose not to...not because her attorney advised her not to.

    I voted yes. Her lawyers can't keep from from the stand, but they can keep the media away. I was shocked when Beth Karas said Jodi was willing to speak to her, until her lawyers found out and nixed it.

    Jodi is brazen, and she wants to talk talk talk. I believe she thinks she can talk her way out of this, and wants to get before the jury. Just like she wanted to talk to Beth this week.

    I could be wrong - but yes, I think she's gonna do it.

    JMHO

    I voted NO, because I WANT her to..........so bad, so naturally it won't happen.

    I voted no but then it is hard for defense attorneys to control a sociopath who is convinced they can tell lies so well that it will convince anyone.

    But she would be a fool to testify.

    Anytime a defendant testifies it then becomes all about the defendant being believed. So it sort of shifts the burden........not legally but subliminally in the jurors minds.

    Also if a defendant testifies a chance for a successful appeal goes way down.

    So should she? Hell no!

    Will she? Who knows but I would love to see Martinez and Arias spar.

    I voted no but only because I feel the defense will try to keep her from doing it. Would JA WANT to take the stand - sure, absolutely.
