It’s all over for Jodi Ann Arias. Even her staunchest defenders have to acknowledge Juan Martinez and his closing argument hurt pretty badly:
We just had a discussion on what could Jodi’s attorneys possibly say that could get her a lighter sentence than life without parole. In my opinion, just listening to selective portions of Mr. Martinez’s closing argument, life without parole is a win for the defense team. Right now, they are fighting to keep her off the gurney.
Mr. Martinez destroyed the defense’s witnesses; most whom appeared clown-like or non-credible. He eviscerated Miss Arias’ statements, making her out to be highly manipulative and an extreme liar. Mr. Martinez tilted the table towards execution by citing Miss Arias’ behavior prior to Mr. Alexander’s death as premeditation.
Jodi’s a cute girl. She’s a smart girl. She is smart and cute but The System is smarter than any person. You might get over on The System, but if you do, it will always bite you even harder the next time. Its the way the world works.
