Jodi Arias micro-managed her round of television interviews Tuesday night, demanding hair and makeup and ordering the cameras not to show her from the waist down and the reason why she insisted on these rules can be seen in these photos obtained by RadarOnline.com – she was shackled at the ankles and dressed in her prison stripes and hot pink socks.
She asked the jury to spare her life and not give her the death penalty after she was convicted of first-degree murder in the brutal death of her ex-lover Travis Alexander, and then Jodi granted outlets interviews if they followed her rules.
However, the Associated Press released the photos that she didn’t want the world to see – wearing her black and white striped prison uniform, hot pink socks, sandals and heavy chain ankle shackles.
Judge Sherry Stephens lifted the ban she had imposed barring Jodi from doing interviews and she told multiple outlets that she was unhappy with her defense team for not calling witnesses on her behalf and that she was also unhappy with the jury.
“I felt betrayed, actually, by the jury,” she said during her interview with AZCentral.com.
“I was hoping they would see things for what they are. I felt really awful for my family and what they were thinking.”
Jodi said if the jury comes back with the death penalty she “would feel shell-shocked again.”
In a shocking twist to the case, on Wednesday the jury told the judge they were unable to come to a unanimous decision regarding the death penalty but she ordered them to continue deliberations.
