I think when this trial is over, we may see new changes in the ways trials are covered. The influence of sites like W sleutths...court spectators trying to be part of the case..the media focus. I would not at all be surprised that on appeal, JA is granted a new trial becuase of this circus. It must have been like this in the infamous Dr. Sam Sheperd case in the 1950's which as a result ended up making new law as it went to the Supreme Court( not JA's trial but issues surrounding it)
This is exactly why trials are televised and a part of our Constitution for free speech which should not impact the jurors. we do not have any influence at all on them. if you think this trial is a circus, I would put forth that you may not, for comparison, have seen the latest * shark * trial and many others!
