(Now I’m telling the Jury Duty story. Later I’ll tell the bus stop story. (I’m fine…no problem…next time I’ll just be walking a few extra blocks in the opposite direction is all…))
The charge was felony ‘lewd acts with a minor under the age of 14’. Of course it would have been a horror to deal with and there were many among the prospective jurors who ended up in tears and we hadn’t yet heard a word of testimony.
The whole process of jury selection and especially the judge’s participation was quite interesting, a real civics lesson, and now I’m so curious about how it will turn out that I have toyed with the idea of going down to listen to the trial! But probably not That curious.
