I don't recall that. Insanity plea doesn't fly with me. She knew right from wrong, imo.When the juror asked what happens if she is found sane after 10 years (I think it was 10, it's very patchy soundwise) I really had hoped he would ask "What happens if they realised she fooled them?"
I get what the juror asked though. Good question. If she is found sane after ten years in a hospital (because she fooled them) does she go to prison for life?I don't recall that. Insanity plea doesn't fly with me. She knew right from wrong, imo.
Fortunately, being insane and criminally insane are not equivalent.A juror just summed it up with his question, insanity plea basically admits she is guilty but was she responsible?.
Go go coward lady, lol!!If that is the case that they will select the 18 jurors (12 and 6), and go right into the Opening Statements the same day, then asking the right questions is of the utmost importance in these next two weeks. Today, it took me awhile to get into the meeting, and I couldn't hear many of the jurors answers, but now I see, if they do it right and can select their jurors quickly that day, then, the actual trial just might start April 3rd. It'd be very efficient and note worthy if they can pull it off, IMO.
The first 20 potential jurors were identified after seven hours of proceedings Monday as the jury trial started for Letecia Stauch, who is accused of killing her 11-year-old stepson Gannongazette.com
The potential jurors responded with a mix of opinions on all the topics brought forward by Allen.
Meanwhile, Tolini spent the majority of his time asking every potential jury member if they could truly presume Stauch’s innocence amid such horrific allegations.
“I admit it’s not going to be easy,” one potential juror said after questioning from Tolini.
“It would definitely be difficult,” another said.
A handful of potential jurors also admitted during Tolini’s voir dire that the not guilty by reason of insanity plea is one that they can't take seriously.
“It’s for cowards,” one woman remarked when asked by Tolini.
Go go coward lady, lol!!
...I mean, it's good that not everybody thinks that way but, I'm glad she spoke her mind.
