Back on Monday

No new posts here until Monday. I’ve been called to serve on a trial jury, where I will do my best to provide our justice system with a Sanity Injection!

    Well, without going into too much detail…it was an assault case. It should have been a very simple case, but the defense kept trying to introduce evidence that the judge had ruled inadmissable. So there were a lot of objections and what had to have been a record number of sidebar discussions.

    My fellow jurors and I did not have too much difficulty arriving at a verdict of “Not Guilty”. We did not believe that the defendant had any intention of physically striking the complainant.

    It was my first time actually sitting on a jury and it was definitely an educational experience.
