Jodi Arias Learns Her Fate at Sentencing Hearing Today in the Murder of Travis Alexander … Will It be Life Behind Bars or Eligible for Release After 25 Years?(Update: Judge Sentences Jodi Arias to Life with no Possibility of Parole)
THE BLACK WIDOW LEARNS HER FATE LATER TODAY …
Later today, Jodi Arias learns her fate at a sentencing hearing in Arizona as a judge formally imposes a life sentence in the 2008 shooting and stabbing death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend. Jodi Arias shot her boyfriend Travis Alexander and stabbed him nearly 30 times in his suburban Phoenix home before fleeing and driving to Utah to meet up with another romantic interest. Arias was convicted of the murder of Alexander, but some how she escaped the death penalty because of one misguided juror who appeared to have an agenda and was sympathetic to Arias (VIDEO). The only remaining decision is whether Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens will allow the 34 year old Arias to be eligible for release after 25 years or serve the rest of her life behind bars. We can only hope that Arias has not BS’d the judge in the same manner that she has played the legal system and the jury in this murder case.
How on earth to you so savagely murder some one, be found guilty and then some how be eligible for parole?
Jodi Aria – The Mistress Manipulator
The long-running legal saga of convicted murderer Jodi Arias draws to a close Monday as a judge formally imposes a life sentence in the 2008 shooting and stabbing death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend.
The sentencing is largely a formality after a jury deadlocked last month on whether to give her the death penalty or life in prison. The mistrial removed the death penalty as an option, and the only remaining decision is whether the judge will allow the 34-year-old Arias to be eligible for release after 25 years or serve the rest of her life behind bars.
It’s not known if Arias will speak to Judge Sherry Stephens before she hands down the sentence. Family members of victim Travis Alexander can also address the court.
JUSTICE FOR TRAVIS … HOPEFULLY JUDGE WILL IMPOSE LIFE BEHIND BARS WITHOUT PAROLE!!!
UPDATE I: Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens Sentences Jodi Arias to Life in Prison without the possibility of Parole.
Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and there is Justice finally for Travis Alexander. As Jodi Arias pleaded for parole to Judge Sherry Stephens, thankfully the judge would have nothing to do with it and did not buy into Jodi’s act. Arias’ manipulation has come to an end and so has any chance of her ever leaving prison a free woman.
“The most important thing I want to say is I am very sorry for the enormous pain that I’ve caused the people who loved Travis. I never thought I would cause so many people so much pain,” she said. “I live every day wishing that I could undo what I did to Travis and wishing that I could take away their pain and just put it onto myself.
“To this day, I cannot believe I was capable of doing something that terrible,” she said. “I’m truly disgusted and I’m repulsed with myself. I’m horrified with what I did and I wish there was some way I could take it back.”
“The crime involved substantial plan and preparation. The defendant did not render aid to the victim. The defendant destroyed evidence at the crime scene,” Judge Stephens said. “The defendant went to great lengths to conceal her involvement in the crime. The court has also considered the harm to the victim’s family members.”
“The court finds the mitigation presented is not sufficiently substantial to call for leniency and that a natural life sentence is appropriate. It is ordered the defendant shall be incarcerated in the Department of Corrections for the rest of her natural life with no possibility of parole,” Stephens added.
