    Ross Harris Trial Jury Selection - Tweets, News & Discussion (Brunswick)

    11Alive News will have a crew in Brunswick for the entire trial, providing gavel-to-gavel coverage on-air and on 11Alive.com.

    http://www.11alive.com/news/local/ro...wick/316331475

    On Monday, a second round of jury selection begins in Brunswick, where potential jurors are expected to be more open-minded toward the former Home Depot web developer accused of intentionally locking his 22-month-old son inside a hot car to die.
    Opening statements are scheduled for Oct. 3 but could possibly start sooner, depending on how fast a jury is selected.

    Harris will now be tried in Glynn County, located on the coast about 60 miles south of Savannah. Potential jurors will be pulled from a diverse population that includes blue-collar workers in the port city of Brunswick and upper-class retirees on neighboring St. Simons Island.

    I am currently watching the courtroom on live stream. It looks like it is going to be a while before we see anything of interest as the courtroom is virtually empty right now. Should we expect any jury interviews this afternoon?

    I joined WS for this case, and I am eager to the jury selection and the subsequent trial get underway.

    Questioning won’t begin until after lunch. Potential jurors with hardships that would prevent them from service are currently pleading their case before the judge
    25/250 = 10% asking to be dismissed because of hardships

    People claiming hardships are having a tough time getting dismissed from jury duty...

    The judge and attorneys questioned 35 possible jurors who asked to be excused. Out of six people questioned before lunch, just one was dismissed altogether: a man claiming he had excruciating back pain.

    Those who might still get picked include a father-to-be expecting his child to be born this week, a man whose daughter is getting married this weekend and a doctor who works in a rural emergency room. They all got time off, but must return to the courthouse before jury selection is finished.

    Staley Clark has set aside two weeks for jury selection and is then expected to take a week off. Opening statements and testimony are scheduled to begin Oct. 3. The trial is expected to last up to six weeks.

    http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/h...me-in-b/nsWqF/

    Harris stands accused of both malice murder, which gives jurors the option of finding he intentionally left Cooper in his hot car, and felony murder, which would allow jurors to find Harris guilty of criminal negligence.

    Separately, Harris is also being tried for engaging in sexually explicit chats with underage girls. He faces two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and six counts of disseminating harmful material to a minor.
