Yesterday marks the final day of Jodi Arias’ time on the witness stand. It’s not clear if she can be called back to testify. Arizona runs their courts much differently than most states so it’s possible. Many commentators have noted that the length of her testimony may have been a record for criminal defendants.
The length of her testimony may be historic but so are other aspects about this particular criminal defendant. Lying does not bother her. She can do it and not feel bad. Most people would have difficulty lying about something so important; they would feel guilt. Not Jodi. Her ability to lie and be okay with it, is almost mythical.
