Jodi Arias: Deal to Avoid Death?
It appears that Jodi Arias may take a plea deal to avoid the death penalty rather than appeal her murder conviction.
Arias was convicted last month of murdering her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, back in 2007 with a mixture of stab wounds, a slashed throat and gunshot to the head.
From ABC News:
Hours before the movie “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” played on the Lifetime channel, Arias tweeted on Saturday, “Just don’t know yet if I will plea or appeal.”
It was one of two tweets sent out on her behalf by friends who maintain a twitter account for the convicted murderer.
“Let’s clear up any confusion. Anyone asking 4 donation$ right now on my behalf 4 my appeals is not legit,” she wrote in one tweet.
It was quickly followed by another stating, “I’m not currently accepting donations 4 appeals. Just don’t know yet if I will plea or appeal.”
Arias, 32, is apparently referring to a possible deal in which she would accept a life prison term instead of the death penalty in exchange for promising not to appeal her conviction.
