The Shawshank Arias … Facing the Death Penalty, Jodi Arias Changes Her Mind and Now Begs for Her Life … Vows to Contribute to Society in Prison


Looks like Jodi Arias lied again … Shawshank Jodi Arias Redemption.


Remember when Jodi Arias in a jail house interview stated that she preferred death and to die sooner, rather than later?  Looks like some one is backtracking on her death wish.  But of course that is par for the course when it comes to Jodi Arias. Facing the death penalty, Jodi Arias now says she wants to live as she begged for her life ad promises to contribute to society while in prison. HUH? That is correct, the convicted murderer told jurors that promises she’ll start literacy and recycling programs if sentenced to life in prison. It sounds like some one has been watching ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ on prison TV and thinks they are a cross between Andy Dufresne and Warden Norton. Arias wants to build a library, teach individuals to read and create jobs. If the jury does give her life in prison instead of the death penalty, let me just be the first one to warn the prison warden, do not allow Jodi to have any posters on her wall of Rita Hayworth or Raquel Welch.  Sorry, but if this wasn’t so sad, it might be more funny.


The Arizona woman has backtracked from her previous plea for death, now telling the jury that she can contribute to society if she’s allowed to live.

Addressing the same eight men and four women who found her guilty of first-degree murder, a trembling Arias promised that her life behind bars would not be wasted. She has plenty of ideas about how to bring about positive changes, including donating her hair to be made into wigs for cancer victims, designing T-shirts that would raise money for victims of domestic abuse and helping recycle trash.

She believes that last plan would greatly reduce the “huge loads” of waste taken to landfills.

“It could create new jobs and have a far-reaching impact on the planet,” she said.

The penalty phase of Arias’ trial continued on Tuesday as Arias spoke to the jurors that held her life in their hands. The former waitress spent years denying that she killed her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in his suburban Phoenix home. In court, she apologized for the pain she caused his family.

Jodi Arias Lists Prison Extracurriculars in Attempt to Avoid Death Penalty:

Among her ideas to “affect positive change and contribute in a meaningful way”: implementing a recycling program; teaching women to read; starting a book club; and donating her hair to Locks of Love, which she said she’s done three times since her arrest.

“Additionally,” she said in the bizarre plea to the jury, “I designed a T-shirt … This is the T-shirt” — it says “Survivor” in a simple purple font — “in which 100 percent of the proceeds go to support non-profit organizations, which also assist other victims of domestic violence.
