Live Updates, Day 9, June 20
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:25:59 AM »
Here's a thread for live-updating the second day Round 2, Day 9 of jury selection, June 20.

The day should begin with defense questioning of the prospective jurors and perhaps a resolution as to whether P-67 will stay or go.

We will have another thread for comments.  The Frye hearing begins at 2pm and there is a thread for that under Trial l Motions and Rulings.

Good morning.

I'm on the beat until the lunch break.

Anyone watching or listening, for a long time or a short one, is invited to contribute their observations.

I owe an apoloy to WFTV. In the past two days, I have said two or three times that they seemed to have dropped their trial coverage. It seems I mixed up the links to two different pages on their site. The pages look similar, but they were running different feeds. Apologies all around.

I've double-checked the link posted today.

Continuing with corrections, there is a double whammy from yesterday.

Quote
Today 30 candidates will be interviewed as a group, until 3:45 PM. Then the court will prepare to continue with the Frye hearing.

The Frye hearing was continued until today.

Yesterday, I heard Judge Nelson remark that seating the jurors would take some time because there were 40 of them. So that plan changed too, if the information was correct to begin with. 

Nelson has begun to call the people 'jurors' instead of 'potential jurors'. I've been calling them 'candidates' because it's shorter. Now I will follow the judge, and call them 'jurors'.

List of the 40 jurors, with links to the updates of their first round voir dire.

Nelson said be seated, questioned jurors on whether they have complied with the rules. They say they have.

O'Mara up, explaining the process.

O'Mara asks jurors if he may point at them, noting his sainted mom would not approve. He reminds them to announce their numbers before speaking.

O'Mara says both he and the prosecutors could be said to represent the people of the State of Florida.

Q: What does defendant mean?

B-51: I have to defend myself, maybe I'm guilty.

O'Mara

Q: Some states say 'citizen accused'.

B-51: That seems less inflammatory.

O'Mara dialoguing with jurors about presumption of innocence.

Bernies objects. I didn't catch the objection. I think Nelson overruled.

One of the jurors has been to Singapore, where there is no presumption of innocence.

H-69 talks about her experience in an unnamed South American country.

I-24 as a child lived in a S. American dictatorship. It has changed, but still leaves a lot to be desired.

I-24 says her father came to U.S. to get away from that system.

E-22: No concern about holding the state to beyond reasonable doubt.

Another juror echoes that he has no concerns.

I-19: No concerns.

It was one of the jurors who brought up 'reasonable doubt'. O'Mara is talking about the concept. He refers to Bernie, agreeing that reasonable doubt is not a speculative doubt.

O'Mara dialoguing with jurors about their understanding of reasonable doubt. A reasonable doubt is not an imaginary or forced doubt.
