Jodi Arias Trial Takes a Serious Turn for the Twisted (VIDEO)

OMG 11

When it comes to the Jodi Arias murder trial, I'm not sure who exactly is on trial here -- Jodi or her murdered boyfriend, Travis Alexander? Jodi and her lawyers are doing everything in their power to make Travis seem like the kind of guy who deserved to be stabbed to death and shot several times by Jodi in his own shower. Jodi claims it was self defense. We hear about how Travis was having sex with Jodi despite being a supposedly chaste Mormon. How he supposedly hid Jodi from his friends and family. How he supposedly was cheating on Jodi. And now for the worst of all -- how he supposedly was sexually attracted to little boys.

Today, Jodi is expected to testify that Travis was sexually aroused by pictures of little boys. And who says this exactly? I mean, besides Jodi? Well ... no one. Yeah, how did this get into the trial again? Isn't there a little thing about not allowing hearsay?

Jodi will reportedly say that she saw Travis masturbating to photos of little boys. Yet the prosecution says there is no evidence of photos of little boys on Travis's computer or anywhere else.

Also, Jodi reportedly has 10 letters written by Travis that admit to his attraction to little boys. Ten letters?! Who would write that in 10 actual letters? Who even writes letters anymore for that matter? The prosecution says the letters are fake. The defense says they're not. You do the math.

ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams says that he's surprised the judge will let Jodi testify about such an inflammatory claim. But it could backfire against her. If the jury doesn't believe her, it could make her look like, well, a crazy liar.

The big question for me is WHY, if Jodi really did know Travis liked boys, she'd continue dating him? What does that say about her? This whole thing is such a mess. Ladies and gents, stay away from toxic relationships like this one.

another case of blaming the victim........NO ONE stabs someone as many times as she stabbed him out of self-defense............and YES, I do think she killed him if you haven't already figured that out.

The letters will either be challenged and proven to be fake or "inconclusive" as they will either be in block printed letters or will all be written via email/computer and printed to avoid handwriting/date analysis.


A portion of the defense is to provide for appeal on jury instructions and/or to create a future insanity claim to have her taken from prison to a mental facility.


What a crazy woman.......how does this happen>?

I think you were looking for the term "Hear Say" not the word "heresy"...  Ya'll need to proofread.

The judge is making a mockery of the trial, allowing this lunatic to make these unfounded allegations. For the past week now , nothing but b.s. testimony from this nutsy koo koo.

I am shocked her attorney let her take the stand! The real show will start when the prosecution takes their turn and rips this bitch a new one. Let's see all her "truths" crumble like a clay pigeon. Can't wait.

man.. by this point I feel like she's throwing out everything in the book reality or not just to justify her actions. Wonder what else she's going to throw out there...

I really, really hope she digs herself a hole. I don't want a loon like that getting off easy like Ms. Anthony did because of minor holes in the presentation of the case.

This type of defense worked for Casey Anthony, perhaps her attorney is hoping it will work for her as well.
