Like I said before.
All of my age I let a lot in the beginning and each of those lifetime backtracking to keep things.
And protecting his -- I mean his reputation.
And my impartially.
And to related to any involvement in his -- So.
I understand that.
There'll always be questions.
But I like -- -- this week is seeing what happened to the best of my recollection.
And if I'm convicted and that's because of my own.
Bachelors in the beginning.
That's accused murder -- murderer -- areas making a dramatic final plea to the jurors.
Who will decide her fate she's asking them to believe her despite her changing her story numerous times.
Areas could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering her ex boyfriend Travis Alexander.
The jury submitted more than 10000.
Questions of their own over the last two days and the questions are a final look.
-- how the juror -- jurors might view the case against her.
Let's talk about with Fred -- former federal prosecutor and Arthur -- all of former prosecutor also criminal defense attorney.
And Fox News legal analyst all right gentlemen so we have heard from the jury moment.
-- they seem awfully skeptical Fred what do you make of the question yes.
Media they are awfully skeptical with good cause and I'll tell -- John.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Why did you -- a little lie about it and her -- was even worse it was that she says.
To protect his reputation this jury heard this woman sitting on the witness stand for eight days -- run this guy -- like a dog.
Including calling him up had a file so.
You know even when she's lying it's not consistent with the other wives that she's been telling and I have every reason to be skeptical and quite frankly if I was -- the bestsellers -- get all nervous.
Well after seventeen days on the stand Arthur I mean you pulled rabbits out of hats in front of juries before do you think that her -- even Arctic could save this woman -- -- -- -- -- -- Do you think that they you know there there might be at least a hung jury on the death penalty question that's always that's always the the question out of -- hung -- because even though all of these people ask questions.
You don't know which jurors asked which questions.
And I think I mean seventeen days I I'm trying to think an analogy but to -- the broadcasting world I mean it's just so bizarre unheard of how did you come back plus the day bungee jumping the shark that many religious crazies to the bottom line is may -- she connect.
On a personal level -- one -- two of the actual jurors.
That they're gonna say.
Let's not till this moment let's just put -- in the cage.
Without you know any chance of her -- getting -- we don't we don't know which jurors asked the individual questions they all get submitted to the judge the judge went over them.
And then she asks them all of the jury.
But take a listen to this point.
After all her life she would have told.
-- -- -- -- My kids is it typically.
Something I just do what I'm not gonna say that it never told my in my life before this.
And today but.
-- -- told in this case.
Can be tied directly back to either protecting -- -- reputation.
Or my involvement in his death in any way.
Because I was very ashamed of attack and also I want to continue.
-- I try to sleep anyway I didn't want to DNA by -- -- hateful things about him.
Especially now that he had passed away Nelson -- -- be construed as.
Motive for example -- he was fine with me.
Arthur we've already heard what Fred thinks about that particular response -- spent weeks trashing the guy on the -- what's your take.
He passed away and he -- he yes actually she referred to reveal an employee and seeing you dial anyway I mean I.
How about telling the truth for a change -- just say listen I was scared.
I -- why did this -- wanna go to jail for life so I lied about it I mean that's at least -- -- being honest with the jury jurors want you to be honest with them.
I mean I actually kinda like this system John.
Which is -- nothing like this New York with the jurors are entitled to ask a few a few questions to one of the questions.
But at least he gives them look did the -- -- the fact it is a question that hasn't been answered I think it is good idea to let the jurors asked the question along with a strained by the judge.
What about that Fred I mean yeah if she had answered.
In a way that may be implicated herself a little bit she might have gotten up better with this jury in this particular you know I -- hear me say this all the time when you got -- EDU don't nibble and that's exactly what she's been doing throughout the entire case and the problem -- state.
-- -- human nature being what it is remember.
When someone does something -- you.
You're actually angrier battle when you find out about it that the fact that they lied to you should this woman got on the witness stand.
And they issue lies and I mean I think this jury's going to be anger at her because she tried to manipulate them I mean I think it's just clear from changing her hair and he goes through a thousand different things.
And you know one of the answers to one of the jurors asked was were you angry at Travis on the -- kill them.
And she said I had no fear that day which I think it's just we're just.
Actually I think this isn't exactly a job she had just some -- you -- afraid to you about.
Hi UN until someone can save your -- -- -- talk about -- -- on the rate I don't.
If you've got a total real slip of the tongue there -- another unique -- everything I don't remember it well there's spoken like a former prosecutor you picked up -- that sadly Fred didn't see him but at Arthur I dollar have a great weekend afternoon.
