Jodi Arias Asks Jury To Spare Her Life
Jodi Arias held up a T-shirt she designed as she begged a jury to spare her life.
"This is a T-shirt, which 100 percent of the proceeds go to support non-profit organizations which also assist other victims of domestic violence. Some people may not believe that I am also a survivor of domestic violence. They're entitled to their opinion," said Arias.
The extraordinary show-and-tell was Arias' last-ditch plea to spare her life. She promised to do good if she's allowed to live—like selling her long hair for wigs for cancer patients
"If I'm allowed to live in prison, I will continue to donate to that organization for the rest of my life," said Arias.
Dressed all in black, she spoke before the jury for 19 minutes.
Arias told the jury, "This is the worst mistake of my life. It's the worst thing I have ever done."
It was her final chance to save her life after being found guilty of for murdering her boyfriend, Travis Alexander. But it was strangely devoid of emotion.
Arias stated, "To this day I can hardly believe I was capable of such violence, but I know that I was, and for that I'm going to be sorry for the rest of my life."
She even played a slide show for the jurors, showing herself as a young girl, with her two nieces and other family photos showing her in happier times.
"I want everyone's healing to begin and I want everyone's pain to stop," said Arias.
