Jodi Arias needs money for her legal fees, and hopes her followers can buy plenty of rubber band bracelets to help her out.
The 33-year-old, who was found guilty of murdering her boyfriend Travis Alexander and is awaiting sentencing, has started selling “Jodibands” to followers in the hopes to raise money for her defense.
“To raise funds for appellate costs, wristbands (or “Jodibands,” as many people are calling them, are being sold at ” she posted on Twitter last week from behind bars.
Apparently Jodi Arias has some competition, as she pointed out on Thursday that hers are “the ONLY wristbands that are legit and that I endorse at the WHITE ones being sold at “
The all-white bracelets are being sold for $25 online. On her website, Jodi Arias said the money will go toward people who want to “fight” for Jodi to regain her freedom.
The site noted:
“Jodi’s right to a fair trial has been taken from her. Our justice system has failed her and the result is a wrongful conviction that now must be appealed. Jodi Arias Support Wristbands are now being offered exclusively through this website. They are a symbol of our love and support for her and a way in which we can help raise money for her appeal. All of the proceeds from the sale of these wristbands will be deposited into the JAA Appellate Fund. Every purchase is then, in essence, a pledge of $25 towards the fight for Jodi’s freedom. If you believe in her, then fight for her.”
In May a jury found Jodi Arias guilty of first-degree murder for killing Travis Alexander in his Arizona home. A jury couldn’t decide whether she would be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty, and a new sentencing date has been scheduled for February.
