Judge: Overrules objections. Defense: Strikes.
We're on #1019.
next juror has not heard much about the case... just about the arrest and when they found caylee in the woods
has he formed an opinion?? yes I thought she did it
This juror is so nervous.
Alright this guy is going to be REALLY hard to listen to for like 3 hours...
I think somebody at CNN.com/live went for a long lunch - whoops, the picture just popped up, already talked to the P.J.
Did we get one or two approved this morning? Sorry, I had to go grocery shopping since I put it off since Monday.
this juror thinks she is guilty
PJ being questioned about pre trial publicity and his opinion, stated that he guessed she was guilty.
For those who usually watch on CNN but switched, they are now live again
yes.. he can set aside his opinions
Oh boy...this guy is difficult to listen to. He's kinda wishy-washy in his answers.
1019 - male - African American, no hardship, no financial, medical, family, employed IT, employer won't hassle for time off, thinks he will be paid.
1 in 1 out
DT used a strike on 2nd guy
One asked back for the next round. One released.
This man does not sound at all sure that he can set aside his notions of guilt...
if selected you will be required to set aside any ideas, etc or opinions etc., what you have seen/heard and based on the evidence you see here and the law I tell you, etc., HHJP is so good at giving the PJ the intro speech. There is no right or wrong answer but in your heart of hearts are you able to do that sir. Yes. Any hesitation or reservation - No. You understand if selected anything you have gleaned, conclusions you have arrived at, you cannot use it to fill in the blanks. Any concern about your ability to do that. No.
HHJP..."and I don't mean to be redundant." LOL Here's looking at you BAEZ!!
