Jodi In Chains

Here is a play by play of what happened in court today via Twitter:

From ‘@WildAboutTrial’:

-In the courtroom at the Jodi Arias trial. Many of the usual faces are here in the spectator section. Media is rather thin. I see Tara Kelley and some other jurors in the gallery. Nurmi and Willmott just went back into chambers. Jodi Arias is not in the courtroom yet. Juan is here…Det. Flores just arrived. Just to remind everyone, this will not be live streamed and most of the hearing will be held in chambers and sealed. Jodi just came in wearing her gray prison striped outfit with salmon socks. Jodi Arias was just escorted back by the well armed sheriff’s deputies. She is in chambers now. These guys are scary looking.

@Chriswnews: Never seen a Jodi Arias escort like this. Arias walked to chambers her shackles making a racket. Arrives in chains surrounded by what appears to be an MCSO SWAT team.

@WildAboutTrial: Willmott just bolted out of chambers and smiled at Flores and Juan, she is getting something from her desk and heading back in. No sign of Travis’ family, just supporters.

@chriswnews: Was told Travis Alexander aunt the only family member expected in the gallery. Sis Samantha to attend via phone. Family civil attorney here.

@WildAboutTrial: Looks like other attorneys here for other trials. Nurmi, Willmott and Jodi Arias are still back in chambers. Flores and Juan continue to semi-reclinate and laugh while they chat. The courtroom is full of chatter. Flores and Juan were just summoned back into chambers. Everyone is coming out of chambers. Jodi Arias has full umbrella bangs and makes a clanking noise as she walks. She went to her room.

@maryellenabc15: Jodi Arias is walked back through court to her holding cell…she is shackled, handcuffed and in jail stripes. Jail SWAT is guarding her.

@WildAboutTrial: The armed sheriff seems to be clearing Jodi Arias’ table. She is brought out now and is sitting down. There are 4 fully armed sheriff deputies here to keep an eye on Jodi Arias. These are some serious deputies. Wow. Jodi Arias is sitting with the DP mitigation specialist whispering. Sheriffs haven’t left her side. Jodi Arias did not seem to have a smile on her face, looked rather tired. Attorneys are back. Judges Stephens is present and addressing the court now. Court is deferring the ruling on the motion to delay the trial until July 18. The hearing is over.

@tarakelley320: Seeing Jodi in shackles was totally worth being at the courthouse today!!!

    Guess life isn’t so grand fo #438434 anymore. Wilmott smiling? She still looks like a sick shark. bitch!

      Of course Wilmott has a smiling she got a month delay. You can be sure #438434 is a happy camper now as she will get to go before cameras again.

      Putting it off until later. So she will rule whether to delay the trial on the 18th of July (which is confusing because she is delaying the trial just by delaying this ruling!)

    Seeing the slaughterer in stripes and cuffs made my day……just saying…lol….so July 18th….isn’t a good day for the defense….but seems they are able to make it for a ruling for when this circus will continue….do I have that right?

      Only Jodi and defense team have rights. Seeing her in stripes didn’t make me feel any better as she got the delay for 1 month and who knows on the 18th if judge will give them even more time.

        Seems to me like almost everything goes Jodi’s way. If judge sentence her I think will be 25 yrs with time counted.

      I know, but I think this judge is being extra cautious. If you give them every chance at a good defense, it lessens the grounds for appeals later. This judge is makin sure they don’t have anything to argue later. After all Jodi’s theatrics are exhausted, then it will be so obvious that they gave her the fairest trial possible and the defense will have no more tools.

    After seeing JA in her much deserved striped outfit and matching clangy jewelry surrounded by her favorite people (men in heavily armored uniforms) and seeing how they cleared the table before she could sit (so she can’t steal nomore pencils) along with distaste expression on unglassed eyes, I found it very very very much due!! What I really thought was: why would Wilmott, who requested a delay, be available on the 18th to hear ruling on this request? Wasn’t she too busy ’till Jan. 2014? Wouldn’t it be a riot if on July 18th, 2013, after seeing all counsel present, judge says, “….after reviewing documents of request by Defense Attorneys for a delay of trial and Prosecutors documents against delay and seeing how all counsel is present, delay is denied and trial begins in 10 minutes….”. Wouldn’t that be a bomb???? lolololo

      1. Daisy

        You could be right. They probably need time w/more psycho tests. Imagine, they can’t find anyone willing to take the stand for Jodi!! Small wonder huh????

      1. Daisy

        I know. Must’ve been my “fantasized reality” period when I made this statement…sorry!! Oops….fog comin’ in…..

    Did anyone think this case may never be over? Maybe a new judge would help. How about judge Judy she takes no BS from anyone. She would rip Jodi apart and her team.
