    She should automatically lose her license to practice law and ability to sit on the bench if she gave this monster parole, IMO.

    A M1 conviction can ALWAYS be overturned. However, it's highly unlikely just based upon this event. We are in a sentencing phase now...not a guilty or innocent phase.

    The only bright side to LWOP vs. DP is that the State would no longer fund her appeals, like they would from Death Row. She would have to hire an attorney out of her own pocket. Good luck finding a volunteer, let alone the money for that.

    Correct. In a few years Jodi could be living in accommodations that are similar to living in a sorority house with a bunch of criminals. And she will be treated like royalty and the queen among all those criminals. Jodi will absolutely thrive in prison. Provided she gets a few interviews and makeup every once in a while.

    Not me.. I will tell you why.. Because she could have overlooked the IF. She could have assumed they meant they were dead locked. But that may not be what they meant. The court tweet is usually dead on. I think if they said THEY WERE DEADLOCKED they would have tweeted that. But not if.

    That to me sounds like something there is no reason to add...

    I am hoping it was if. That way they may have been preparing for a long day of working it out.

    I will accept the verdict they render. It will just seem like such a victory for CMJA that she will smile and I will be sick.

    I didn't speak for anyone, I simply gave an opinion; you're free not to agree with it if you so choose.

    I'm for the DP as well and as a Christian that is well within my right, same is true for Travis.

    I want her to die, I want her to suffer (not such a Christian attitude) but true none the less. But if this means putting the Alexander family through another trial of evidence, I say give her LWOP and be done with it. Give this family some peace and let them get back to their own families and begin to put their lives back together. I think Travis would agree that his family has suffered enough...jmo of course.

    Do you have a link to that statement by Dr. Drew about what Juror #8 said? I never heard that.

    :seeya: I totally understand ...

    But IMO, IF they do NOT give the DP, they will surpass the P 12 ...

    Travis' MURDERER deserves the DP and that is the only way there will be Justice for Travis and his Family !

    Then they are not DP qualified because they are unable to follow the law.

    My God, the demon must be loving this...

    She stood in front of the jury and swayed them with her b.s.

    I'm sure she thinks that Wilmott and Nurmi are incompetent lawyers...

    Her debut as a lawyer was a huge success....

    Trying to be objective, I don't think the jurors are actually hung at all, or even close. They've dedicated so much of their lives to this case, we've heard that they are tight-knit, and they've agreed on all of the other verdicts up until this point. How logical is it that these same dedicated jurors would deliberate for a few measly hours and then say, "Whelp, we tried but we can't agree."? Not very likely. Instead, I think this may have been an honest question and we all jumped the gun (thanks to JSS, it would appear). I doubt that they are all unanimous at this point but, from what I understand, that is not unusual.

    They said Jodi will be on death row for 3 years, regardless of what sentence she gets. I hope that is true. I just hope she is death row till death, not sure that will happen in Arizona but after seeing what the effect of being in there does to the prisoner (KCL's sister's killer)...good enough. Keep her away from others. "no happy as hell in jail" for Jodi...she never had to suffer the responsibility or the fall-out of her actions, that was for others to pick-up the pieces. game over.

    It is just too bad that this trial is not being held in Travis County, TX. The jury would have been back yesterday.

    I agree with this.

    Inspite of the fact they have reached agreement during the first two phases, the one change I noticed in this phase is that Wilmott gave in to BPD. A personality disorder may make some feel sorry for her IMO.

    On the other hand, Wilmott argued that life was life, when it may not be the case. I, personally, would be pi$$ed that she tried to lie to me throughout the entire trial. My 2 cents. Hope they reach a decision for the families sake.

    Keep praying!!

    Light a candle and Pray for Justice. I'll also be screaming to the Heavens for Justice. Please Jurors, make a unanimous decision today.

    Perhaps, but the staff tweeter could have just assumed the if.
