Jodi Arias is less than a year into a sentence of life without parole for the 2008 murder of boyfriend Travis Alexander, and she apparently isn't adjusting that well to life in maximum security: The Arizona Republic reports that she has lost contact visitation rights for at least 180 days after making an insulting remark about a corrections officer, meaning she will see visitors on the other side of a glass wall instead of in the same room.

According to an Arizona Department of Corrections report seen by ABC 15, Arias admitted making the remark about the officer on Feb. 3 after her request for a haircut was denied, though she argued that the remark wasn't that bad and officers should look it up on Urban Dictionary "because that would show it means to 'stonewall someone.'" That word would be "c---blocker," per ABC 15. (More Jodi Arias stories.)
