Arias Sells Art For Money, Profits From Boyfriend Slaying

PHOENIX (AP) — Jodi Arias is apparently profiting from the notoriety she has received since killing her one-time boyfriend, selling drawings from jail on a website operated by a third party.

The website, which also accepts donations, purports to offer her original art work, noting authenticity in the form of the following statement: “All pieces created after January 26, 2013 are authenticated with Jodi Arias’ right thumbprint.”

Her mother, Sandra Arias, says the site is, indeed, Jodi’s. Profits are being used to help pay family expenses while attending her trial.

The site claims to have sold several pieces, including a drawing of Frank Sinatra for $1,075. One piece is being offered for $2,000, shipping included.

No law prevents Arias from profiting from her notoriety given that she hasn’t been convicted of a crime.
