    OT: And to expound on that , I would set it up in "law library" decor: warm, dark wood; carefully designed, cozy dimmed lighting (most restaurants have horrible lighting, lol) , including sectioned off booths; some separate areas with cozy chairs and love seats; and dark wood book shelves along the walls filled with law books and such. The bar itself would be the judge's bench aka The SideBar :giggle: I can dream can't I ? :)

    That's the problem. It's not automatically to LWOP. One of Katiecoolady's sisters' killers almost became eligible for parole after an additional five years at the whim of an anti-DP judge. It didn't happen in the end but it very well could have.

    Totally agree Scarlett, it's exploitation, unethical and repugnant. But that's who this DT is.

    I would even suggest just DP or LWOP as their choices. Then if it's a hung jury, have the LWP as a third option for the judge should they be swayed by the new mitigation the DT is allowed to present... oh and make sure the jury knows what each choice really means, none of this not knowing that choosing Life means the judge then gets to choose what that means, it might provide enough incentive for those who are firm on their convictions to try harder for a unanimous verdict.

    If the verdict is DP, the judge will then schedule a sentencing hearing. She could do it right away, but I think she will need a hearing to see if there should be victim compensation included (funeral expenses, etc.). That should be scheduled 1-2 months after the verdict. After the sentence is actually imposed, the clerk will file an appeal immediately. However, jurisdiction will likely be returned to JSS for a few months to deal with post-trial motions filed by Nurmi.

    Interesting, we could also have drinks named after major players in this trial... Juan's Margarita ? Wonder what kind of drinks could be named after Nurmi and Willmott ? :thinking:

    Now, now, I think it's selfish, but I wouldn't try to swat her for it!

    Agree completely with this!

    It's more than a little strange that the system entrusts 12 citizens with the task of deciding between life and death, yet does not trust them to decide if the life sentence should be natural life or otherwise.

    Thanks, TM. So I guess it's up to the jury then to evaluate the evidence and testimony to strike all the mitigators (such as they are) so ultimately all that's left is the lone aggravating factor of cruelty against her? I do understand that if any of the jurors feel that JA has even one mitigator in her favor that negates their single vote for death penalty verdict. Veddy intedestingk. We shall see.

    They had witnessed Jodi 's weird behavior, spying on Travis, following him everywhere, listening outside the bathroom door when he was in there. That's all I remember.

    Was doing my errands today and mulling it over. I want Arias to receive the DP, but even if she doesn't there's no way she's ever coming out of Perryville alive. As someone posted succinctly yesterday (paraphrased and IIRC): either way Jodi will go into Perryville alive and come out dead.

    If the jury deadlocks, IMO JSS will give Arias LWOP. Her record doesn't paint her as lenient.
