Arias trial: Grade defense expert Dr. Samuels

  • Jodi Arias, on trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, claims self-defense
  • Alexander was stabbed 29 times, shot, throat slashed
  • Arias claims she can't remember many details of the killing

Jodi Arias’ attorneys called expert witness clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Richard Samuels to the stand Thursday.

He took a lot time explaining how the brain works when it comes to memory loss.

But on Thursday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew and his special guests took just as much time dissecting his testimony -- each giving him a letter grade.

You can grade him as well by taking our poll: How would you grade defense expert Dr. Samuels?

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Thursday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET.  Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
