Due to popular request and advice to fellow Occupiers, it’s important to note that Occupy is not a “pro-Jodi” or “pro-prosecution” website — nor is Occupy a website about one particular case. Nevertheless, Occupy has been inundated with requests asking on how to donate money or send pictures to inmate Jodi Arias.
Occupy never recommends sending money to a 3rd party (including Occupy) to send to Jodi herself. Occupy sees no sense in sending to someone in the hopes they’ll send it to the person you’re intending to send it to. Occupy believes in transparency. If you’d like to send money, cards, or pictures to Jodi Arias, here is the information you’ll need in order to do so.
Money mailed into inmates may be in an envelope addressed to the jail and must state the inmates name and booking number.
Estrella Jail – Maricopa County
Jodi Arias #P458434
2939 W. Durango
Phoenix, AZ 85009
Estrella will not accept letters. You are only allowed to send a postcard. If you wish to send pictures, you may then do so using an envelope, but Jodi is only allowed 5 pictures at a time in her cell (which is barbaric). So in order for Jodi to accept your picture, she would have to throw away one of the 5 pictures she currently has in her cell, where she’s locked in 23 hours per day, in direct violation of the United States Constitution’s 8th Amendment protecting the accused and/or convicted against cruel and unusual punishment.
How to Place Money on the Books of an Inmate:
Money mailed into inmates may be in an envelope addressed to the jail and must state the inmates name and booking number. “FOR DEPOSIT ONLY” must be clearly marked on the outside of the envelope, and be sure to include the “Return Address” on the mailing envelope. A person may also place money on an inmate’s “money account” books by presenting a Cashier’s Check (official check), a U.S. Postal or a Western Union money order with the inmates’ name and booking number to the visitation officer during the regular visiting hours. The person needs proper and current identification. Inmate funds are accepted at any Sheriff’s Office jail for deposit via the touch pay kiosks located in the jail visitation lobbies.
Wet, soiled, or altered forms of money will be rejected. You must provide the inmates name and MCSO booking number. Touchpay kiosks currently accept Visa/Mastercard and funds are usually posted within 1 hour to the inmate’s account. There is a fee for this service.
In addition to the payment kiosks, deposits can be made via telephone, the Internet, or at select retail locations.
