day 5 and miles to go before they sleep….
Day five of jury selection in the State of Florida v. Casey Anthony has ended without the requisite number of potential jurors selected. The goal is to impanel a total of 20 persons – 12 jurors and 8 alternates. To date, there are 8 potential jurors who are under consideration.
Tomorrow morning they’re back at it at 8:30 a.m. and hope to continue until they’ve gone through the rest of the 30 or so potential jurors yet to be questioned.
We learned today that the Judge is still not inclined to allow the jurors to smell the decomposition that the Assistant State Attorneys would like them to smell.
Also, George and Cindy’s attorney, Mark Lippman is threatening to file a grievance against the Anthony’s former attorney, Brad Conway. Lippman is chargingthat Mr. Conway violated the attorney-client privilege by speaking ill of the Anthony’s family dynamic to the media.
Court resumes tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m.! I’ll finally be able to watch the voir dire it as it happens!
