Jodi Arias’ Legal Team Misses Appeal Deadline
JODI ARIAS' LEGAL TEAM MISSES APPEAL DEADLINE, REQUESTS EXTENSION
(CNN) – Jodi Arias’ lawyers missed the deadline to appeal her murder conviction.
Arias was sentenced to life in prison in 2013 for the 2008 murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
CNN obtained court documents about the appeal.
It shows Arias’ lawyer missed the filing deadline; which was February 28th.
They are now requesting a three-month extension.
Attorneys blamed staffing and computer problems in the motion to extend filed Thursday in the Arizona Court of Appeals.
They also state one of the lawyer’s chronic health issues as reason for the 90-day extension request.
The Arizona court of appeals is currently reviewing the request.
