Jodi Arias Live Blog: Arias Grilled Under Cross-Examination by Prosecutor Juan Martinez; UPDATES
Afternoon recess is over. It's 1:38 p.m.
Jodi Arias 2008 mug shot.
Prosecutor Martinez begins by asking about her journal entries.
Her entry indicates that "Lonnie" was baptized on a Thursday night, as referenced in her previous testimony. The entry goes on to say she went to Travis' house for the night, "where we explored every naughty fantasy we could conjure up in our fruitful imaginations that we haven't already fulfilled with one another. I love him, I really do."
Martinez asks if this sexual escapade was to involve Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops. It was. But did she enjoy them?
"I enjoyed his attention," she answers.
Martinez presses for a real answer. She's saying she neither enjoyed it or didn't enjoy it.
Martinez asks her what she's trying to say. He gets her to say she didn't enjoy it.
She missed "Lonnie's" baptism because she was having fun with the Tootsie Pops, right? he asks.
Martinez says the above journal entry implies that she enjoyed it. He points out the Pop Rocks were part of the "naughty fantasy."
She says this was "his" imagination, not hers. Martinez fires back that she's the one wrote the entry.
"Show me here where it says 'I did not enjoy the Tootsie Pops and Pop Rocks," Martinez says.
She has to admit it doesn't say that.
Martinez is very argumentative. He now asks her if she's a lawyer and knows what a crime is, after she said she didn't tell the cops about the possibility that someone read her journal, because that wouldn't have been a crime. The issue here is that Arias is implying she didn't put all of her thoughts in her journal because someone might read it.

You might wonder what was going on with the candy: We were told Arias put the Tootsie Pops in her vagina and gave oral sex to Alexander with the Pop Rocks in her mouth.
Martinez is asking her if she thought wearing braids was "hot." She says Alexander thought it was "hot." He asks if she wants the tape played again in which she says the braids are "hot."
A tape plays -- she says she really liked when she had the braids. He said he loved the braids. She said, "yeah, they're hot."
