Lone Juror Against Jodi Arias Death Penalty Receives Death Threats
The lone juror who voted against the death penalty for convicted killer Jodi Arias is now the target of online abuse and ridicule.
A photo burning up the internet shows the woman we'll identify only as "Juror 17," with her husband.
"Juror 17" is behind the 11-1 vote that spared the life of Jodi Arias, who brutally murdered her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
Cops were stationed outside Juror 17's Arizona home, where her husband stood by her controversial vote. "She's not opposed to the death penalty, she just didn't believe it was warranted here."
Telling reporters, "She felt like she was being assaulted by all the other jurors, trying to get her to go the other way."
The mistrial had the sisters of Travis Alexander weeping uncontrollably. She exclaimed, "Real justice will be in the afterlife, when Jodi burns in hell!"
Former HLN host Jane Velez-Mitchell is the author of Exposed: The Secret Life of Jodi Arias.
She told INSIDE EDITION, "Now, the question is are we in for another shocker? Is the judge going to turn around and say, 'well, I'll give you parole after 25 years?' I certainly doubt it, but with these mega trials, you never know what's going to happen."
Is "Juror 17" a hero? Like the lone holdout played by Henry Fonda in the classic drama 12 Angry Men.
Or is she a woman with an agenda as claimed by another juror in an audio interview moments after the mistrial was declared.
"I feel that the one holdout had her mind made up from the beginning," the juror said.
Another juror actually apologized to Travis Alexander's family on behalf of the eleven who voted to have Jodi Arias put to death for her crime.
"The eleven of us strived for justice for Travis, but to no avail. We absolutely feel the penalty should have been death," one of the jurors said.
