Jury Selected in Retrial (Sept. 18, 2008)

Defense and government attorneys spent the first half hour of Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2007 striking jurors. During the three-day Voir dire, the judge dismissed 22 jurors. So out of the 66 jurors questioned, 44 remain.

By about 10 a.m. Thursday, all the jurors who were not struck made up the 10-woman, 2-man jury with four additional jurors (2 men and 2 women) who will attend the retrial as alternates. Their ages range from early 20s to late 60s.

Opening statements will begin Monday, Sept. 22, 2008. It will likely last about 6 weeks.

Let’s hope the jurors will listen to the case with an open mind. And let’s pray that jurors will see the truth, like the juror from last year’s trial that ended in a hang jury: William Neal.
