'After Dark' defense: Prosecutor may create sympathy for Arias

  • HLN's trial experts present and argue evidence of the day in the Arias murder trial

When court is done for the day, the conversation is only just beginning. Watch "HLN After Dark: The Jodi Arias Trial" nightly at 10 p.m. on HLN.

Jodi Arias is accused of shooting her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in the face, stabbing him multiple times and slitting his throat from ear to ear.

Maricopa County Attorney Juan Martinez is trying Arias for the 2008 murder of Travis Alexander, and if Arias is found guilty, she could get the death penalty. Martinez is known for his aggressive approach in court and he’s been criticized by some for being too aggressive. But is his tough style what it takes to get the conviction he’s after? In 2004, Martinez successfully prosecuted Wendi Andriano for the murder of her husband; she was sentenced to death.

The HLN After Dark legal experts weigh in on the night's Bold Accusation: Prosecutor Juan Martinez is too aggressive. It's up to our lawyers to prove that Martinez is either guilty or not guilty of being too aggressive. Criminal defense attorney Joey Jackson argues that Martinez is alienating the jury, and that he has only one mode with all witnesses: attack mode.
