Unasked Juror Questions

Getting inside the minds of the jurors is one of the most interesting parts of a trial. I have transcribed about half of the questions from the pdf- you can use the link at the bottom of this post to read the rest. You will find some of these questions are mixed with ones that were asked. Also there are the handwritten questions delivered to the judge during the deliberations (p.25-27)
1. Considering all the lies you’ve told and admitted to, would you consider yourself a pathological liar?

2. What pets did you have as a child? Did you ever intentionally hurt a pet or animal?

3. If the defendant feels she has a high I.Q – is it possible she would try to outsmart psychological tests?

4. Do you feel you should be punished for what transpired on 6/4/08?

5. For LaViolette: You say Travis gives no indication of being stalked-displays no fearful behaviour and continues his contact w/ Jodi of his own accord. How do you reconcile Jodi’s claim of D.V if she continues her contact w/Travis of her own accord? Where was her fearful behaviour?

6. Is there a type of stalking, or what could be considered stalking, that a person is comfortable around someone in person or when they are speaking with them, but are afraid of what they do or what they or what they are capable of when they are not around? Is this a possibility of this in the relationship between Jodi & Travis?

7. A lot of your testimony has been based on what Jodi has told you. It has been proven that Jodi has lied multiple times since killing Travis. How are you able to know everything she is saying is truthful?

8. Did you ever see any proof that Travis physically abused Jodi?

9. Isn’t it possible that Jodi didn’t write some of those incidents in her journal because they never happened?

10. You stated that you spoke to Jodi’s friends and family early on. Did you ever speak to Travis’s friends and family to find out more about who he was? If no don’t you feel that would have been important?

11. If something is premeditated is amnesia more or less likely to occur?

12. How could you be a sister to Matt, someone you had sex in the past?

13. Why didn’t you read the Book of Mormon to see what you were and weren’t allowed to do?

14. Why did you ask Travis about everything you did?

15. Why did you start a relationship with Ryan Burns when you said earlier ” When I am with one guy I don’t see other guys”?

16. Would it be possible to see what Jodi’s hand looks like when draped over a shoulder now?

17. Were you paid for the interviews with 48 Hours and Inside Edition?

18. You testified that Travis gave you the Book of Mormon at Starbucks. Did you read it thoroughly? If so, when?

19. Does the Book of Mormon go into detail regarding the Vow of Chastity?

20. Where did the information about Travis ‘being a flirt come from?

21. Where do the date and the time stamps on the text messages come from? Are they “send’ dates? Why would he say “Goodnight” at 8:13 am?

22. Was the gun that was used to kill Mr. Alexander found in Ms. Aries posession?

23. In regards to the knife or gun used…was Mr. Alexander’s old BMW searched?

24. Did you feel that Travis’ job interferred with your relationship mainly with regards to travel & phone calls?

25. If you were shocked to hear Travis was a virgin, why did you break up with him after you found out he was cheating on you?

26. Are date and time stamps on photo’s taken by digital cameras able to be manuallly changed and/or manipulated?-1. before photos are taken? 2-after photos are taken?

27. Who was involved in all the tire slashings? ie-Travis, You, Mimi, Lisa. Who’s vehicles were damaged?

28. You stated you were aware that the police recorded the calls because an attorney told you. Can you tell us when you were told this and how the subject came up?

29. After all the lies you have told, why should we believe you now?

30. What happened to the suicide letters you wrote to your Grandmother?

31. Were you kneeling when you  dropped the camera?

32. When Travis stepped out of the shower to attack you was he wet? If so, did he slip at all on the tile in the bathroom or hallway?

33. When entering the closet, why didn’t you just go in the door closest to you?

34. Do you know how tall the ceiling in Travis’s closet was?

35. Was the gun in a case or just laying on the shelf?

I will probably transcribe the rest of these questions for a second post, but if you would like to see them now here is the link:

    Just came across your blog. I have one on Jodi Arias as well, thought I’d give you a shout out.

      1. Pam

        I don’t think the judge favors her. I think she wants to try to make sure there are no grounds for appeal..I could be wrong but she looked disgusted to me when Jodi was testifying.

      2. Penny

        Do believe judge wants no appeals but she seems like she is bending over back words for her. Why is she letting Jodi go on for hrs? This makes no sence to me.

      3. Pam

        I felt the same way Penny. Think back though. When Juan was questioning defense witnesses and they were objecting to the judge she was letting him get away with it most of the time and it pissed Wilmott and Nurmi off. She let Jodi go on and on because again she didn’t want any appeals conflicts. She knew Juan’s reputation and he would get her on cross. I think the reason the judge lost her power to talk for a minute when the non verdict came in is because she couldn’t believe Jodi didn’t get her deserved verdict. Death… I think if judge decides it will be without parole.

      4. Penny

        Yes Pam it does make sence and I do think Judge was stunned when she heard the jurys verdict. At least Seacat got what he deserves. Still scared judge will give her 25 yrs.

      5. Penny

        Pam if she gets life w/o parole she can be in general population at some point in time if she can be a good girl which she will do to be able to get all her attention back. I want death with no contact with anyone!

      6. Pam

        Penny, I want death too. Believe me. I was talking about if the judge has to decide between life with parole or natural life. I agree with you 100%. I want her where she can’t hurt his family anymore. No more interviews..no more T-shirts or Twitter. If the state is lucky enough to get another trial and the jury choses death ……everyone will breath a sigh of relief. She must be having a fit now spending 23 hours all alone.

      1. Penny

        Wathed Nancy Grace last night I agree wth he Jury had way to many questions about he BOOBS and sex. Boobs have nothing to do with this and they both loved the sex. Do not understand how 4 of the jury could not see that.

  2. K

    Omg, why weren’t these allowed? Especially #33..why didn’t she run to the other door? That’s the most logical action of someone running from a fight. If I was on the jury, this list would include, “Why are you such a whore?” Or “How did you expect to get away with this?” Guess it’s good I wasn’t on that jury..

      1. Penny

        Nancy Grace last night said Jodi will probably be moved soon to a chushy mental facility with only about 20 people and may never see a day behind bars. I am SICK and know Alexander family has to feel worse then any of us.

      2. Pam

        If they move her to a mental hospital for a personality disorder, someone is on the take. There are people in prison with a lot worse mental problems then that. I don’t think she is going anywhere.

      3. Pam

        I like Nancy but she doesn’t know everything. Your talking about a lady that says BOMBSHELL TONIGHT whether she is telling you the weather or about a new hair style. With this case anything is possible. I have seen specials on TV where they talk about too many mentally ill people being in prison because there are not enough treatment places for them. I still say if she winds up in a cushy 20 bed place..something smells!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Pam

    I just hit on any reply I could find in old mail..Has this blog closed? I haven’t had an email in days. Just wondering.
