    Not so fast:

    http://news.yahoo.com/mass-killer-gets-trial-death-penalty-case-200510649.html

    A federal judge determined that incorrect answers of jurors during voire dire was sufficient to grant Mr. Sampson a new DP trial.

    Specifically, he cited this juror:
    BBM-whose life experiences DONT shape their thinking? Mr Sampson confessed to his crimes, but no matter. He gets a do over.

    This guy was sentenced to death in 2003 and just now the district is deciding his appeal/request for retrial? Are you kidding me? This is federal court. That means there are very few appeal options. Trial, appeal to 1st circuit, Supreme Court. How is it that a request for new trial sat around for 9 years?

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 11m11 minutes ago
    According to this question it appears the jury may have reached a verdict - but unclear how this note impacts that @nbcboston @NECN #Sampson

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 11m11 minutes ago
    #Sampson's previous death penalty verdict was thrown out for juror misconduct @nbcboston @NECN

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 10m10 minutes ago

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 9m9 minutes ago

    Government says "if they all agree with the verdict, I don't think the note matters" @nbcboston @NECN #Sampson

    Defense: precedent says jurors are free to dissent from verdict when polled after verdict is read. This is not made up. #fox25 #sampson

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 2m2 minutes ago
    Defense quotes prior case, "the jurors remain free to dissent from the announced verdict when polled" @nbcboston @NECN #Sampson

    Judge is back in #Sampson - asks attorneys whether they believe the letter should be preserved in any way; defense says yes @nbcboston @NECN

    Bob Ward Fox25 Verified account ‏@Bward3 1m1 minute ago
    Judge to attorneys: do you think letter should be preserved in a sealed envelope? Def: could be evidence of coercion, yes. #fox25 #Sampson

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 2m2 minutes ago
    Government argues letter shouldn't be preserved, just like juror notes aren't preserved @nbcboston @NECN #Sampson

    Bob Ward Fox25 Verified account ‏@Bward3 54s55 seconds ago
    Judge: not my intention to read the letter but set it aside in sealed envelope for the official record and appeals court. #fox25 #sampson

    Chris Villani Verified account ‏@ChrisVillani44 2m2 minutes ago
    Gov't: "let's stop the speculation, it could be evidence of coercion, it could be a juror sickened by 20-day defense presentation" #Sampson

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 2m2 minutes ago
    Judge says the letter wouldn't be read, but could be kept in case there is an appeal @nbcboston @NECN #Sampson

    Alysha Palumbo ‏@AlyshaNBCBoston 42s42 seconds ago
