Watch The Jodi Arias Trial Live Here & Updates — (#5)


Last week, the defense domestic violence expert faced tough cross examination from the prosecutor and skeptical questions from the jury.

A human lie detector?

Prosecutor Juan Martinez spent much of the week attempting to use defense domestic violence expert Alyce LaViolette’s own words and theories against her.

Martinez continued Monday to challenge the opinions LaViolette had expressed about Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander’s relationship during her previous six days on the stand.

He questioned how she uses a diagram illustrating what she calls the continuum of aggression and abuse. LaViolette said it was part of the framework she uses in general, but her assessment of Arias is not based on it.

Throughout the week, Martinez repeatedly reminded LaViolette that she had said during her direct testimony that 90% of communication was non-verbal, but she did not personally interview anyone other than Arias in preparation for the case.

“That would mean you were 90% wrong,” Martinez said Monday of LaViolette’s interpretations of Travis Alexander’s writings and text messages. LaViolette maintained that she read enough interview transcripts, texts, instant messages and emails to have the proper context to evaluate Arias.

Revisiting LaViolette’s “Was Snow White a Battered Woman?” presentation, Martinez asked whether she spoke to anyone involved in the fairy tale before assessing that case.  LaViolette responded that she did not speak to any of the seven dwarves.  LaViolette was also questioned about the things she chose to believe or dismiss from Travis Alexander’s communication with other women. Martinez asked LaViolette if she was a “human lie detector” and later referred to her as the “gatekeeper” of what evidence is or is not believable.

    Yes and there’s already a Petition to have it removed. I won’t though until she’s been found guilty. Even though I post links to Petitions, I have to wonder how many really achieve their goals :(

    With the exception of Caylee’s Law. That was started with a Petition correct?

  3. This completely confuses me once again. Jodi can degrade anyone she chooses and admit she gave the finger by saying it was for Nancy Grace, Nothing they can do about it. The defense finds out the Prosecutor is being asked after court for autographs and the defense throws a fit. What is wrong with this picture? Why is it always ok for people like Jodi and Casey that seems to think they can do what they want but slams their foot down if it doesn’t go their way? Another messed court system in favor of the killers. Someone needs to finally shut people up like this.

    (sorry for this response in advance, but…) Are you effing kidding me? La toilette, A.K.A Grumpycat actually approached the Alexander family? Can I please have any link/ info available? This is outrageous disrespect for the victim’s family, unless she was apologizing profusely, which would tell an entirely different story.
    I am beyond disgusted with this woman now.

    Good point. I wonder how much LV realizes that by saying the wrong thing to one of Travis’s sister, she could have been admonished from any testimony at all. That sure would have left fred and wilma in the lurches, wouldn’t it have.

    And we still don’t know what she said. Now then, wouldn’t it be funny if that sister would have said (not a lie, mind you ;) something like, she apologized and/or something else that would have indicated she was lying on the stand. Travis’ sister could have cooked her goose but good.

    Well Kids, it has been fun. Time to hit the Happy Trail for Home. Will jump back in soon. Thanks for friendship, thoughts, comments and help.

    I sort of feel like she shouldn’t be able to profit from her notoriety until the trial is over. It isn’t even that I think people should believe she’s guilty (even though I do think they should)… it’s about commercializing the legal system. She’s only famous because she murdered someone and is on trial now. It just seems like dirty money.

    Plus, if anyone pays $2,000 for that picture, they’re stupid. If you REALLY study it… it’s good… for maybe high-school level art. Just like the rest of her pictures. Totally passionless and empty, just like her eyes are.

    Do you suppose this might be Katie Wick, Dr. Drew’s most consistent “Juror”?
    If so, it certainly would lend some veracity to the statement.

    Binky – my mom heard someone say they thought she told Samantha “It isn’t personal,” or something like that. But Mom can’t remember where she heard it, so again… no citation.

    Binky (MO), honestly- the entire defense team is such a bunch of bumbling clowns- Wilma & Nurmi, and Samuels& Grumpycat are all like Dumb & Dumber.

    The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lisa Allen told KSAZ, “We don’t like it… but there is nothing we can do about it.”

    Can’t JM bring this up to the judge? Why is it okay for skank to speak out via twitter during a trial?

    Jodi Arias Trial – Day 45 – Part 1

  12. Dena

    August – I agree; however, what will happen is, the case will be made that Arias isn’t doing it from jail, and she’s entitled to communication with her friends and family, and they can’t stop her friend from updating the Twitter account.

    What they should do is petition Twitter to take it down.

    Ok, I took a nap, did some errands, made the chef salads for dinner, and I am ready for juror questions read by the judge, with perhaps concise answers from the violet?

    Are y’all ready for a change of pace? I sincerely hope there are great questions.

    Sal ♥

    More than ready to unmute my computer audio and listen to the jurors questions. We can already predict that ALV will smile a lot and attempt to “charm” them with her lecture-like responses.

    Do we know if Juan gets one last crack at all the lies she “mis-spoke” about?
