    I think she was snarking at the Alexander family, as she qualified that by saying she was sorry some people didn't like it. Frankly, when I saw the look on her face when the mistrial was called, I didn't think she looked very happy. And if she is secretly disappointed that makes me happy. No death penalty = no endless appeals, no being a poster child for anything and fading into obscurity double quick. An appeals attorney once told me one has about a 1% chance of prevailing in a criminal conviction appeal. Good bye Jodi, and good riddance.

    that they seemed to have survived the process well and were not burnt out or suffering undue fatigue despite the drawn out nature of the process. However, they did express their displeasure with the never ending computer/porn evidence. They seemed to respect the judge-course, they are not legal professionals so probably don't know much about trial management. I still think the trial was not well managed in terms of time and repetitive and/or irrelevant testimony. The jury seemed to well understand the inappropriate nature of the defense focus on trying to make the victim a "bad guy". Maybe this will serve as a deterrent to any tentative Nurmi followers.

    I so hope you're right but I won't hold my breath. I wish I had some optimism, even just a little of yours if you could lend me some. I'm so so sad right now Devastated really but will hold out hope.

    Anyone else catch the snark in judges voice when asking Nurmi if his client wanted a presentance report? "So does she or does she not?"

    I chose to believe that the one truth Jodi Arias ever uttered was that she wanted the DP because she couldn't imagine spending the rest of her life in one spot- that it would drive her crazy.
    So Jodi lost.
    I also chose to believe that her life in prison will be a living hell and that being euthanized by lethal injection is far more humane a death than she deserves. She dies instead on her rank thin mattress in prison of old age, or cancer with no last words. It's all good. She wins perks by being a good girl in prison?? Who thinks if Jodi had been a model prisoner in jail, it wouldn't have been a feature of her mitigation?? Of course it would have. Jodi won't be winning any gold stars or early release from solitary IMO and there's a good chance she'll be classified as mentally ill requiring her to comply with a whole other set of rules.

    i don't think she has a choice...I believe she could have given the sentence today...she was ready...but she needs to let them put together reasons for not doing natural life...if she had not granted that...it would have been appealed....some of this is the system not JSS.

    IMO, Jodi will struggle to raise funds for the commissary. The donations will quickly diminish.

    Well, 11 jurors didn't believe she was abused by Travis & the first jury didn't either!!!!!! She needs to give it UP! No one believes her.

    Welcome Wynegyrl.:wagon::welcome4: We don't mean to ignore you, it's just that today everyone is caught up in the injustice of this non-verdict that we've been following since 2008. If anyone deserved Death, it was her. A jury in Texas took 90 min. to give Death to a crooked judge who murdered a prosecutor and a D.A. and his wife.

    I know right? So the other jurors who were honest told her they were sending a note to the judge and even read to her what they were sending. What is her response? To send a secret note to secret Sherry.
