So Far, Empty Seats in the Courtroom

Officials in Sanford are running a lottery each day to divvy out the 24 seats in the courtroom available to the public.

But since the first day, fewer than a handful of people have vied for the seats most days. Just three people entered the lottery for Wednesday's seats, and two of them didn't bother to show up. Only four entered the lottery for today's seats.

I'm so tempted to drive there -- it's no more than an hour and a half away. But that's hard for me physically. I wish I had a local friend who had as much interest as I do.

Suzie, the Sentinel just came out with a more detailed article on how to get a seat.  Good luck and let us know what happened.

Going was just a temptation. I'll be watching on TV or my computer like the rest of you.

Kathy Belich of WFTV, who is twittering from the courtroom, says there are 2 or 3 empty public seats in the courtroom today, the second day of testimony.  This doesn't attract the same amount of interest as the Casey Anthony case.  I think when Rachel testifies the house will fill up.
