So Jury duty in district court today, oddly [livejournal.com profile] immlass also had jury duty for the same case. She was #21 and disqualified, I was number 82. It was a rough voir dire: #80 was empaneled. I might've been, but I'm pretty glad I wasn't.

Four counts, starting with attempted capital murder, followed by sexual assault of a disabled person, aggravated sexual assault, and aggravated assault.

I don't know the circumstances of the case, but i knew we were really in for it when the defense attorney basically warned us not to be prejudiced against his client if he was tough on the victim on the stand.

Even with the ones he accepted, he needs to be careful about that.

In more exciting news, our charming defendant made the news a few months ago when he allegedly tried to hire another inmate kill his accuser for money, because, yeah, the cops won't think that's at all suspicious. Some details in the link for the morbidly curious. If proven, I would not have felt an impulse to be particularly lenient.
