Jodi Arias has lost her visitation privileges for almost 200 days after admitting to officials that she made a vulgar remark about a correctional officer. 

According to a report from the Arizona Department of Corrections, Arias was disrespectful to staff on February 3 around 11 a.m. when she admitted to a correctional officer that she called the officer a "c*** blocker." 

The officer said Arias originally made the comment to another officer while she was making a call. The remark was investigated and according to Arias, the comment was taken out of context.

The report goes on to state that Arias made the remark in front of another inmate. She claims she hears "other inmates talk that way all the time and figured it was ok." 

According to the report, Arias who was making a phone call had requested a haircut, but the request was denied by an officer. She was informed of the officer's decision, and she then said to another officer, who had informed her of the denial, that she "knew she would say no" because "she's a c*** blocker." 

Arias was later confronted about the remark, and the inmate did not want to admit to it but later did. 

She claims she "did not know that word to mean anything sexual" and the officer could look up the phrase on Urban Dictionary "because that would show it means to 'stonewall someone.'"

The investigation was completed on February 9.

As a result of Arias' remark, Andrew Wilder, with the Arizona Department of Corrections, said the inmate will have to demonstrate at least 180 days of good behavior in order to see visitors again.
