I've thought a lot about the perfect juror in this case, both from the defense and prosecution perspective. It's going to be a long trial, so not just anyone can/will be able to serve for time limitations. It may be moved and the jury sequestered, so that may be a restriction for some people, like with health problems or such. I'd like to hear some qualifications think might be looked at from either side. Defense: Will likely want some young people who might identify with the 'party' lifestyle. Young parents who might have experienced stress and had an flash of anger. A middle age person might be reluctant to sentence a young woman to a long prison term. Senior citizens won't be a good pick, because they are more likely to be judgmental about the many sex partners. Hispanics may not be a good pick, because of accusing Zanny, but might be sympathetic to JB. They will need at least a couple who can understand the science. I think they will want mostly single people. Prosecution: Will want secure business people with steady backgrounds. Will want people who can understand the technology evidence, like social networking and photo accounts. They will like college grads who will find the science interesting. Young parents could be sympathetic to the state because most parents would die FOR their children, but again, stability in a home life will be very important. Senior citizens might be OK with the state, because they will be intolerant of the whole family's antics, which are expected at trial. I'm not sure the racial/ethnic juror makes a difference to the state.
