Jodi Arias Claims She Contracted Hepatitis C in Jail
Jodi Arias – who was convicted last year of murdering her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander and is awaiting the death penalty phase of the case – claims she has Hepatitis C, blaming it on Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
To add to that, she believes there is a conspiracy between Arpaio and journalist Nancy Grace.
Arias has reportedly filed for restraining orders against Sheriff Arpaio and Grace, claiming that it’s a violation of her privacy and could affect her death penalty outcome.
Arias believes that a tuberculosis shot she received while in the Maricopa County Jail was contaminated, infecting her with Hepatitis C.
She also accuses Arpaio of giving sexual letters between her and Travis Alexander’s cousin to Grace.
And finally, Arias says her breast implant leaked – causing a fungal growth – but was denied medical help.
Is that it Jodi?
Sheriff Arpaio gave ABC15 his first response to claims, saying he has no knowledge of any Hepatitis infection and thinks she is probably using the story as a media ploy.
“I have no knowledge of that,” said Arpaio referring to Arias’ claims that she contracted Hepatitis C while in the Sheriff’s care. “That comes out of the county medical agency. Looks like she just wants more publicity. I cut off her meetings in jail a while back and she’s in court right now, so she’s probably using me as a vehicle to get some connection with her court testimony. Everything she is saying I have no knowledge of and it doesn’t even make sense.”
Arpaio also rejects claims that Arias’ does not get fed in the jail until she recites patriotic songs.
I guess Jodi Arias is back in the news. She will never go away!

#jodiarias Don't think having your implants re-done is a requirement for government inmates… Yank those rejects out.
