I am back in court today for the 2nd day of Letecia Stauch’s jury trial, where attorneys will continue to work to find the 16 people who will serve on the jury for the trial, which is expected to last 6-8 weeks.
The goal over the next two weeks is to find 110 people who could potentially serve on the jury, and on April 3 attorneys will pick the 16-person jury from that 110 person group. Yesterday, the first 20 potential jurors were selected.
Probably another 10-15 before we get started, but I’ll aim to tweet updates once we get going.
Issues again with most of the potential jurors stating the length of the trial would be a significant problem in serving on the jury. On Tuesday 39 of the 75 called in for jury duty indicated the length of the trial would be a serious issue.
A handful more said that prior experiences with child abuse would make them wary of serving on the jury for this specific case.
On Monday, 48 of the 75 indicated the length of trial would be an issue.
