Even though Jodi Arias has been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend, are there still people out there that support her?
Psychologist Cheryl Arutt said that type of person is “somebody who is looking for attention by association. There is a personality that wants to kind of piggyback on somebody else for either fame or notoriety.”
But attorney Mark Eiglarsh noted, “Every one of [those types of people] has the ability to serve on any potential jury. When you wonder how come there's no slam dunks in the justice system, it's because everyone is randomly called and can have their own as-crazy-as-they-want thought processes."
Since the jury could not come to a unanimous decision in the sentencing phase, a new penalty phase with a new jury has been scheduled for July 18.
