Jury Duty Over

Wow, that was long. Took an entire 5 days. I finished with a greater confidence in the criminal justice system, despite its flaws. The case turned out to be incredibly complex, and I don’t think I’ll repeat it all on my blog. That would take a while. The case was one of aggravated sexual assault, so it was pretty serious. This was my first jury experience, and it was an interesting one. Serious crime, insanity defense, stupid lawyers on both sides, having to deal with foreign cultures (both victim and defendant were Indian), conflicting testimonies, DNA, etc. Lots of wierd things in this trial. This really could have been an episode on Law and Order SVU.
