Clearly, Zervakos was not qualified to be on the jury, much less to be its foreman.

Evidently, he could only sentence serial or multiple murderers to death. In addition, we are not supposed to single out only lawyers to serve on juries.

One would have thought, in a death penalty option trial, that if he thought it unfair to ask jurors to make a death penalty decision, that he would have had the obvious sense to recused himself from such a jury.

What is, truly, unfair, is that Zervakos thought himself qualified to be on the jury, when he clearly knew that he was not.

Odd that he would think the viciitm impact statements should have no influence on his judgement. Why does he think that is part of the case? Just for the jury's amusement? It is to make them understand the incredible gravity of the case, that even when "only" one innocent is murdered, that it is an act of such depravity and consequence that the death penalty is a reasoned outcome.

Even more disturbing, he found Arias to be a perfectly normal woman.

Incredible.

What was truly "flawed" was that he was on the jury. He has made that crystal clear.

The saddest thing is that it's five months later, $1.2million spent and still counting, and after all is said and done, the foreman and the other three had their minds made up before they ever got into the deliberation room; they weren't going for the death penalty, no matter what. What is it with jurors who see a pretty young woman, and they fall for her lies and manipulation almost every time. If she had been old and unattractive, she would already have been given the death penalty, end of story.

amazing that they were even able to serve as jurors on this case- I know for a fact the jurors are advised about the dp being an option and they were supposed to be okay with it.

I still cannot understand why another juror didn't report it to the judge- those anti-dp jurors would have been replaced.

Seemed it was love at first sight for him, the minute he walked into the jury box, saw the defendant with her chair lowered as far as it would go, dorky glasses in place, with a smirk on her face.

Is Mr. Montgomery's office part of Nurmis office or is this a new lawyer? A little confused :(

Montgomery is the county attorney. Prosecution. In essence, he is Juan Martinez' boss.

Well, my friends, this just goes to show you that you can vote somebody guilty of pre-meditated, first degree murder, with torturous circumstances, then vote with your crotch in the DP phase, and get your ugly mug on TV, time and time again! ONLY in America! ;)

It's rather infuriating. Foreman's wood preempted justice. I'm disgusted with his off the chart "ICK"' factor.

Lotta' ppl weighing in saying Jodi escaped the DP because guys had the hots for Jodi, were too busy fantasizing about sex tapes, or weren't thinking with their brain etc.
Wondering how they square that with fact that some of the Non DP'ers were women?

This old man is thinking with his wrong head. Arias has not ever nor will she ever be normal and average. She has had the killer mentality all of her life. Look at what her folks have said. She is the devil and he was "sucked into her Vortex"

I thought Donovan was Jodi's friend IN prison.
Guess she is the one on the outside who does her twitter feed.
Either way here is a link to the Dr Drew interview with Donovan

Not sure how truthforjustice can say Jodi was framed when she said she stabbed Travis...
