    Vanderbilt Rape Retrial - Brandon Vandenburg, and Cory Batey

    Some interesting developments as this retrial proceeds. Cory Batey is the only one going on trial at this time. Brandon Vandenburg's case was postponed because one of his lawyers is ill. This week Batey tried unsuccessfully to fire one of his lawyers. The jury has been selected and it looks like opening statements will take place on Monday.

    Hmmm, sir, I don't know if that will work or not:

    Jim Todd, a Nashville defense lawyer and former prosecutor, said jury selection is like reading tea leaves, and its hard to predict whether the makeup of the jury could be beneficial to the state or defense. Todd is analyzing the case for The Tennessean.

    You pick people you hope are impartial and fair, but you also want to pick people you hope are receptive to your message, he said. I think the defense would hope that men would be more sympathetic to alcohol-induced mistakes and less sympathetic to the victim.

    IMO, it won't work worth a dayam if those men see their daughter or granddaughter in the victim's place.

    Ahhh, but we'll have to wait and see, won't we?

    It was all caught on video. And he was found guilty and confessed on Dr . Phil.

    So the justice system is to blame for this retrial. Whomever dropped the ball and allowed this should be out of a job. Jmo.

    WTVF (News Channel 5) in Nashville will live stream the trial (scheduled to start April 4th). Nick Beres, the same reporter who anchored WTVF's online coverage of the first trial, will anchor again. Don't have live stream link but here is main link to the station. http://www.newschannel5.com/

    Awful that this case had to be re-tried. Seems like torture for all involved.

    I hope there are no 'plants' on the jury so this time the conviction (which I'm predicting) will stick. And I sure hope <modsnip> goes down for his part -- he also needs at least a decade in prison, IMO.

    Female defense attorney's habit of saying "ok" after every answer she gets on cross-exam is so annoying. Hard to listen to.
