Jail ban lifted for a member of Jodi Arias defense team

PHOENIX -- A member of Jodi Arias' defense team is no longer banned from visiting her clients in Phoenix jails.

Mitigation specialist Maria De La Rosa had been banned since last Friday for taking a pencil drawing by Arias out of the jail last month.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say the drawing is contraband and De La Rosa cannot deliver things for Arias.

The ban was lifted after a telephone conference Wednesday involving lawyers for Arias and De La Rosa and the MCSO and County Attorney's Office.

Arias' artwork was presented in her first sentencing trial. Her lawyer says the confiscated drawing is of potential use in the mitigation case.

Arias was convicted in May of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of her boyfriend. The case's penalty phase starts in September.
