    Re: The jury in leonard's case is selected

    As GC has indicated, there are no hard and fast rules about jury selection, but there certainly is a concept of "conventional wisdom."


    While gender and race are significant factors in jury selection, there are many others that we will likely never be privy to in this case.

    The prosecution likely sought jurors who:

    *Have experience in, or family or friends involved in, law enforcement;
    *Have experience in, or family or friends involved in, the military; and
    *Have spouses and children.

    The defense likely sought jurors who don't fit into those categories. The defense may also have tried to get younger, single jury members.

    Re: The jury in leonard's case is selected

    It would be interesting to read some previous cases given the identical situation (or an extremely close situation). I'd like to see what the sentencing has been for others that were found guilty. Reading case law is about as exciting as watching a team running the wuss coast offense so if anyone can remember please post it.
