Two years ago, Jodi was acting as her own council. A request to admit letters that Jodi claimed Travis had sent her was denied by the judge after prosecutor Martinez revealed that the letters were found to be forgeries.

Recently, Jodi recruited her mother to contact The National Enquirer and ask them to publish the “incriminating letters.”
.

From The National Enquirer
http://www.nationalenquirer.com/true-crime/exclusive-jodi-arias-desperate-escape-plan

.

Sandy Arias met with an ENQUIRER reporter in Phoenix and handed over photocopies of two letters allegedly handwritten by Alexander.

In the first letter, dated Nov. 27, 2006, Al­exander asks Arias to wear “boy’s briefs” that he can “rip off.” He also asks her to wear one of his shirts with his engraved cuff links so he can see his initials while she performs ** on him.

The second letter was dated March 2, 2008, just three months before Alexander’s murder. In it, he admits that he once hit Arias “in the face.” He also claims that marrying her would help erase his “deviant” thoughts.

“Jodi wanted me to get these letters out to the public. I am only doing this because she asked me to,” her mother tearfully told an ENQUIRER reporter.

“Jodi has several other letters in her possession, but she’s holding off on releasing them.”

According to Mrs. Arias, only electronic copies of the letters exist.

“Jodi told me that the originals were destroyed,” she said.

Can any of that be brought up by Martinez? The forgeries? And, doesn't National Enquirer know the issue with them?

I guess Martinez can now use the fake letters because Jodi chose to testify. They are re-entered into evidence to impeach her credibility.

Yes, the Enquirer knew -- and refused to publish the forgeries.

At least her direct testimony is over. Watching her attorneys leading her and putting words in her mouth .. over and over again. Pulease. There is no justification for what she did. There never will be. If everyone m.urdered someone who yelled at them or asked someone to wear a French maid outfit, half of America would be in prison .

I think Nurmi was imagining Jodi in those little boys undies and what it might be like... He coddled her along and he might stand a chance with her. LOL

This "Clue" (the movie) quote reminds me of Jodi Arias:
"WHITE: (holding her hand out) Wadsworth, let me out.
WADSWORTH: No.
WHITE: Why not?
WADSWORTH: We've got to know who did it. We're all in this together, now.
PEACOCK: If you leave, I'll say that you killed them both.
General agreement among the guests.
Mrs. White rubs against Wadsworth.
WHITE: Oh, Wadsworth, I'll make you sorry you ever started this. One day, when we're alone together . . .
WADSWORTH: Mrs. White, no man in his right mind would be alone together
with you."

I give Round 1 to Martinez hands down. He had her fighting his EVERY word when every word really didn't matter. I think the jury had to of been shocked by Jodi becoming a pit bull, matching Martinez jab for jab. NOT something she should have done. I also think, the jury could tell that Jodi was purposely not answering questions and taking great joy in disrespecting Martinez. NOT SMART. The character she displayed before the jury today confirmed she had been putting on an act her first 7-8 days on the stand. That is insulting to the jury. NOT good.

I think he is just getting started. Be interesting to see how he paints her character next week; using texts, her journal, and other things we know not yet of, to highlight her possessiveness, jealousy, stalker behavior, etc.
01:24 AM on 02/22/2013
I agree with everything you said Livn. I think she should have stood down and started shaking and that would of been more consistent with the way she had portrayed herself. I thought she came off really bad. Like she was trying to fight him on every little question. Often times for no reason at all. She would spend 5 minutes on a question, playing on words, then answer the question with an answer that was agreeing with him. I think the jury will be offended by this. I don't know why the judge didn't admonish her a few times to say yes or no period. I think he did pretty good too.
03:49 AM on 02/22/2013
isn't it important to think about (comprehend) what you're really being asked...so that you can answer the question?
02:55 PM on 02/22/2013
Yes, how long did they spend on the word "enjoy" when talking about the pop rocks and tootsie pops? She had a beautiful time that night, she loved it all. But, she couldn't bring herself to say she also enjoyed the pop rocks, etc. "Enjoy wouldn't be the word I would use..." WHAT IS SHE DOING? But, that part became a snoozer for me...too much time wasted.

I don't think Jodi will shake like a Chihuahua when Juan Martinez yells at her because she's not obsessively in love with Juan like she was with Travis. I'm going to guess she'll stress but not shake. I don't think she cares as much...if she disappoints Juan Martinez.

But she should care what the jury thinks. Sassy answers, smirking, laughing, correcting Martinez on sentence structures, defiantly not answering questions .... Probably isn't the way to go either. Frankly that falls right into Martinez's wheelhouse.
03:01 PM on 02/22/2013
Well, she said it herself that men like JM and Travis make her shake and cause her brain to get all frazzled! She compared JM to Travis!
11:39 PM on 02/21/2013
They need a female prosecutor! She knows exactly what she did as she did what most woman want to do but would never do. She planned to take this man's life and I swear in one of those pictures you can see the fear in his eyes. I believe she took a picture of him when she had the gun in her hand. Why did she visit him that day. They broke up and he didn't invite her. So why was she there. Exactly! She planned it. This guy never wanted her and that's the difference between all her other relationships. She gave him everything she could sexually and after a few months it was not required. He dumped her and at that point she decided to kill him. She planned it. She thought how dare you dump me after all that I gave you. She deserves Life w/o parole!
01:01 AM on 02/22/2013
The guy was a crook and Jodi knew it. No fatal attraction, 100% self defense.

Hundreds of thousands of men and women who use others deserve to die then according to everything you post. Murder is always okay when someone is used since it is "self defense". I know responding to you is completely pointless, but I just wanted to say that since I've been thinking it for weeks now.

Yes, Yes and YES, Joyce, 10000% No question.

You know, the nicer and true in heart, a person is, the more they are hated by the masses, on this site anyway and others. Only someone secure about themselves who is happy with who they are, would see the inner beauty that Jodi has, and could openly say so.

Makes perfect sense to me :)

Thanks for the compliment fortunately being a woman you don't have be a genius to figure one out!  This man was not just her boyfriend, he was somebody son, brother, grandson, best friend, etc......She's a sociopath.....acts of self defense don't result in leaving the victim in a house alone dead for 5 days w/o reporting it.  Acts of self defense are reported immediately to support the accusation.  Don't you agree? The verdict was right on and if she wants to die her wish should be granted...

Oh dear, I can slit someone's throat to the bone, but don't you dare yell at me. I might forget something.
01:32 AM on 02/22/2013
haha NY I think the jury just realized that she is pretty agressive and enjoys being antagonistic. I don't think she did herself any favors today. Next week she is going to be saying uncle when he has her pinned down.
11:17 PM on 02/21/2013
Martinez busted her in a big lie today. Pics of her left hand from May of 2008 show nothing wrong with the finger she claims Travis broke 4 months before the pic was taken. She tried to deny it, but the picture told the real story

11:35 PM on 02/21/2013
Yea, he made a lot of headway in that showing she was lying about it. She tried to insert some of her lies when this was happening, but the proof wasn't there to back them up.
11:58 PM on 02/21/2013
How?
11:58 PM on 02/21/2013
In the picture, all her fingers were bent and the ring finger would not stand out. Even now, it will not show if all her fingers relax.
12:08 AM on 02/22/2013
Wrong! Her fingers in the picture were all aligned with no bends. She can no longer get them aligned because she damaged it when butchering Travis. She held her hand up and couldn't align them the way the picture was.
12:10 AM on 02/22/2013
That's absolutely false. Look at the picture. Her fingers are aligned. When she held her hand up and was told to hold it like the picture, her ring finger was BENT, and not aligned with the rest of them

When did Travis tell Jodi that he was taking the other girl to Cancun? Was it on this last day of his life?
12:02 AM on 02/22/2013
Travis was a liar and he told Jodi long before the killing that he would take someone he owed money to Cancun. It is so absurd that anyone believes she killed him for a trip.
03:10 PM on 02/22/2013
I don't think she killed him for a trip, but I think she tripped him for the kill! You sort of got it right that time, just needed to turn it around a little.
12:05 AM on 02/22/2013
She knew before that though I'm not sure of how long before

I wonder if he will really try to get her upset. I hope so in one way, but in another way, I think maybe 1 person on the jury will feel sorry for her. Yikes ! Mistrial would be disastrous in this case.

She is painting the prosecutor as Travis who might upset her and cause her to forget what happened. Geez she is a phony. Controlling, obsessed little phony with the heart of a m.onster.

Questions her or denies her what she thinks she's entitled to.

I have missed most of this. Did the girl who Travis was supposed to take to Cancun ever testify ? Wasn't she one of the group of friends who found him?
02:04 AM on 02/22/2013
Yes that girl testified. She said her and Travis dated a couple times. She said he liked her but she told him she wasn't really into him and wanted to be just friends. They formed a friendship from their and hung out a few times thereafter. He then had this free trip to Cancun and invited her as a friend to go with no strings attached. She agreed. She also testified about her knowledge of Arias being a stalker which Travis had told her about. She even met Arias at his house one time. Travis was killed almost a week before the trip. She tried contacting him many times in the days before the trip to confirm everything and couldn't get a hold of him so she went to his house. He didn't answer but she saw his car at home. She got in touch with another friend and then another and this led to them finding him dead.
03:27 PM on 02/22/2013
Was she the girl that made the call to 9-1-1?
10:34 PM on 02/21/2013
This story surprised me. To look at this lady who knew her skinny self could shoot a man and cut hie neck. Wow, do not judge people by how they look they might just be a skinny murderer..Just my comment on the story. She deserves whatever she is charged with. She is guilty.

02:09 AM on 02/22/2013
True, maybe others in his office will speak to him about it and he will adjust a little by next week. At least the jury can see that she is clearly trying to antagonize him.

That has always been Martinez's style. He has a plan and he's had a long time to prepare. He's only just begun. Already he has taken apart parts of her testimony and shown that she was caught tampering with a witness by attempting to pass a coded message to her ex boyfriend. She's in deep sh** but she does not know it. She feels superior to everyone including the prosecutor, the judge and the jury. I believe that will bring about her undoing. Sociopaths are very effective liars and they ALWAYS think they're the smartest ones in the room. She really meant it when she said no jury would convict her. She believes she will go free.
10:23 PM on 02/21/2013
This woman is pure evil, but this is a GREAT case study... Sociopaths are wonderful on stage (on the stand) because they give themselves away the more they talk... The defense was a joke, it gave voice to every lie she thought she could pass along... The trick for the state will be just to keep her talking... She LOVES the stand, she is ON stage... THIS is her moment, this is ALL she will ever have... She will not be able to stop herself, she WILL give herself away... (tick tick tick...........)

Gotta wonder if it is all going to backfire. Going into all the details of her sordid sexual escapades. The embellishments. The painting of TA as a pedophile. This could end up as a textbook case of what juries DON'T like.

IMO, I think she's convinced that the jury is on her side and is swallowing her every word as truth. She cannot see it any other way.
