I was awake early this morning and saw this story on a TV news bulletin. At first I thought it must have been April 1st, then I nodded off again. When I awoke a second time I thought I'd had a bizarre dream, but no it actually happened.
I'm no 'legal eagle' but isn't the point of a trial to give the jury enough information to decide who is innocent and who is guilty? Which means, inevitably, that jurors are swayed one way by honest, upstanding citizens, the other way by lying little scroats. Evidently not.
