Prosecutors Get 2 Week Extension on Jodi Arias Appeal – In responding to Jodi Arias’ appeal of her murder conviction in the 2008 death of her former boyfriend, a two-week extension has been requested by prosecutors and granted.
Prosecutors faced a Friday deadline for responding to Arias’ appeal, but asked for the extension Thursday.
The Court of Appeals hadn’t ruled on the extension request by the close of business Friday.
Lawyers for Arias filed their appeal in July saying a prosecutor’s misconduct and a judge’s failure to control news coverage deprived her of a fair trial.
Arias is serving a life sentence for her conviction in Travis Alexander’s death.
As of 2016, Arias is housed at the Arizona Department of Corrections #281129, which is located at Arizona State Prison Complex – Perryville. She started her sentence in the complex’s maximum security Lumley Unit, but she has the possibility of being downgraded to the medium security level.
