Jodi AriasJodi Arias Trial: Expert Witnesses for the Defense

As we enter the fourth month of the Jodi Arias trial, the nation could not be more riveted. Arias is accused of killing Travis Alexander on June 4th, 2008. The prosecution has maintained that Arias is guilty of premeditated murder and is seeking the death penalty.

  1. It is not relevant that she is a sociopath, or that she was “abused” by Travis Alexander. What is relevant is whether she was in imminent danger of deadly harm at the time, and whether the force she used was commensurate with the force that was to be (imminent) or was being used on her. The wounds themselves give you the answer to that question.

To believe Jodi Arias is to say that her father is a pervert, her mother is a dingbat who did not see that her husband was abusing her child and who did nothing to protect her child from the father’s perversions and abuse, and Travis Alexander is a pedophile who beat on her. The whole trial has been sidetracked, and a weak Judge has allowed it to happen
