The purpose of this page is to bring to attention the double standard that the State of Arizona, specifically the Maricopa county Attorney’s Office, is applying to Jodi Arias in comparison to other defendants this office has prosecuted.
The cases highlighted in this page involve defendants, who like Jodi Arias, were charged and convicted of murder. Most of these cases involve grim and shocking details. In some of these cases, like Jodi’s, the defendant had a relationship with the person he/she was convicted of killing.
But some of these cases were not like Jodi’s. They were worse. Some were undeniably cold-blooded. Some of the defendants already had lengthy criminal records. Yet there is one thing all of these defendants have in common that Jodi doesn’t have: A RELEASE DATE.
That’s right! The State of Arizona cut each of them a deal that entailed a set number of years in prison, the release. The State did NOT force them to endure a lengthy, humiliating, traumatic trial and it did NOT waste millions of taxpayer dollars to prosecute them. Finally, it did NOT pursue and plot their deaths.
So why is the government treating Jodi Arias so differently? Why did it refuse all of her requests to settle? Why is it hell bent on extinguishing her life when it has given hundreds of others, who have committed similar or worse acts, a second chance at life and freedom?
Below is a list of cases all tried in Maricopa county, Arizona, where the defendant got a much more lenient sentence:
